Needing to overnight near Union Station, this hotel served its purpose. A little rough around the edges (the keycards still weren't working, so staff had to let us into our room whenever we wanted access), the place showed signs of deferred maintenance. Nonetheless, the bathroom had been decently upgraded, and the bed was comfortable. Staff was helpful, and stored our... More

On the day that I stayed here their keycards weren't working and you had to find a security guard to let you into your room, which was a big inconvenience. (I believe that this has since been fixed.) Other than this, the room was nice and clean and the wifi worked. One of the staff members was very friendly and... More

This was to closest hotel to the Los Angeles Train Station. We arrived around 9 pm on the train and were able to walk to the hotel. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Internet worked. Breakfast was good. We were close enough to walk back and pick up a rental car in the morning and the hotel gave us a... More

This modestly priced hotel is a short walk from the LA Amtrak Station. It is near Chinatown and an area with Mexican themed outdoor shops and Mexican restaurants. Our hotel room was large, with a comfortable bed, a desk, and a small table with 2 padded chairs. The included breakfast featured cereal, bagels, English muffins, small sweet muffins, fresh fruit,...

I'm Local, coming from The South Bay near LAX. I decided a while ago to create a solution against having to battle the Monday morning commute getting to L.A.'s Iconic "Union Station" to catch Amtrak's famed long distance train "The Coast Starlight" (L.A. to Seattle) which departs at 10:00am daily. My friend from The Sacramento Delta region was joining me... More

The Metro Plaza in not the Four Seasons, but you're not paying for the Four Seasons and there's no Four Seasons near Union Station. Convenience was more important than amenities to us. The Metro Plaza is clean and comfortable in a grittier part of L.A. Olvera Street and the Spring Street Barbecue are short blocks away, and Union Station is... More

This was a great little hotel, at a great price. I had a workshop scheduled across the street, and I couldn't have been happier with the location and cost of this hotel. The room was comfortable, clean, and had good airflow. I like it cold, so kept the window open. Only two detractors were (1) the so-so neighborhood. I was... More

I was in town for a quick trip and needed access to public transportation, so I chose this place. The location was solid, near Union Station, which gives you access to the metro (light rail) lines, as well as the FlyAway Bus to LAX. This allows you to travel all over the city at a low cost. The staff were... More

Neat Hotel close to Chinatown, Little Tokyo and Downtown LA. Rooms were clean, decent bathroom and spaces. Good breakfast included. Great indoor parking for cheap prices and good overall price. Really recommended if you want to stay near dowtown.

This is my 3rd stay in 15 years. Was cold this time (Dec.) of year for LA. I carry a thermometer with me and was 59 degrees in the room. The AC/Heater unit under the window is hard to regulate. I woke up an hour later and was 87 degrees. I turned the unit off and that was enough heat... More
