Stayed here for a week on a family trip. The hotel looks dated and the room furnishings were worn and could do with an upgrade. There was a gas cooktop in the room, but nothing to cook with - a kettle would have been more useful. The fridge was rusty and noisy. However the beds were OK and the room... More

If you are going to be in a hurry while staying at L.A. with meetings all day and not enough time to be a tourist, then this is a good hotel to stay. On the outside it looks like a nice hotel, perhaps the first impression of the lobby won't be the best, but the rooms are comfortable enough for... More

The lobby of this hotel was deceptively nice for what are very dated, uncomfortable and small rooms. My companions were on Level 2 and the entire floor smelt of smoke (...meant to be a non-smoking level). The smell was even more intense in their room, clearly the previous occupant had spent the entire time smoking in there - it smelt... More

I got the corner room above the club. The view was nice, the fire escape was a great place to sit and watch people. Really good stay for the value, would probably stay here again if I need to be downtown on a budget.

Throw in great price and location with mixed service and an old, somewhat dingy hotel and you have the Kawada Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Within sight of Angel's Lift, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Bradbury Building, one of the locations for Ridley Scott's class "Bladerunner," and the historic Grand Central Market, the Kawada Hotel is a walk away...

The nightclub underneath this place sounds great! Even from the second floor I can hear every word, note and bit of bass! ! (I'm currently listening to Snoop Dogg - drop it like its hot) It also helps that it's near absolutely nothing that we wanted to see in LA. We have met some lovely taxi drivers on our trips... More

An average place to stay in an alright location in downtown LA. Train station opposite and little Tokyo down the road was convenient and easy access to bus stops. Otherwise the room itself was dark crammed and depressing with people constantly yelling outside my window at night The staff however were helpful and nice

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
