The Metro Plaza hotel in central Los Angeles is a throwback to the '70s. The overall impression is a wish for newer accommodations, especially the comforters and the old TV. I got the impression that it the whole place hasn't been refreshed in decades. The air conditioner was definitely needed in this stale aired room, but turning it on prevented... More

I really give it a 3 1/2 almost 4 if I could because it's better than average. We picked it because of location, which is perfect should be traveling by train. Our room was larger than most, smelled clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff very friendly and it included a nice continental breakfast.

Upon arrival at the hotel, the entrance to the hotel parking lot was unattended. We had to get out of their vehicle and ask the hotel clerk what to do. We were told to back up onto the street and then enter through the narrow EXIT.  There was hair on the carpeting and floors of the room, really disgusting!... More

I arrived to a dilapidated lobby that clearly needs attention. The staff although efficient are not always amicable to a guests needs. I arrived late one night to find an empty coffee cannister - the sign says it's free so you would think they top it up regularly. The room itself was spacious, but had no closet with doors, the...

It was not as I was expecting. Low then average. But the place is near to union station. So if u are using trains and metro then it's very near to that. Nothing good about that hotel other then that. Room was very noisy. Can't sleep in the night also.

Arrived at Union Station and walked 3 blocks to hotel and will catch train to San Jose. Hotel is near Olivera Street (1 block) and Chinatown. People at desk were nice, room seems nice and well maintained. Good for our needs. Breakfast was ok for starter.

I was looking for a hotel that was walking distance from Little Tokyo, Chinatown, El Pueblito, the Disney concert hall, etc., and I found it at the Metro Plaza. I also had budget constraints, but I wasn't disappointed with this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the parking was free and easy, and the room was clean and comfortable.... More

This hotel is within steps of Olvera Street (and the delicious avocado sauce-drenched taquitos at Cielito Lindo), Chinatown, Phillippe's and Union Station, and is walkable to Dodger Stadium and Grand Central Market among others. The room is very no-frills but we got a great rate and it was super convenient to hop on the Pacific Surfliner in the morning. One... More

We were bicycling through L.A. and needed something affordable near Union Station. We picked the Metro Plaza Hotel while searching on Trip Advisor. Four story building across the street from Olvera Street and maybe two blocks from Union Station. The front desk people were friendly and the lobby very clean. They do serve free breakfast, looked like continental style, but... More
