This is an old hotel and, somehow, is like going back in time LOL. Nevertheless is secure, clean and very (very) well located. Two blocks from a Metro station, three from L.A. Live and Staples Center. It's a very good option considering price/quality relation. Take into account that other 5 stars hotels nearby are, at least, 300% more expensive. Regarding... More

Great central location, good value and it does what a hotel should do! It is however slightly dated, decor needs a change, the shower was terrible and as I stepped into room 911 and heard the sirens outside I was a little worried! However for 1 night ... I can't really complain. I got some shut eye and we were... More

Pretty good spot close to all the major attractions. L.a live staples center and Los Angeles convention center. Near stores for shopping. I was there for a convention in July and very affordable price for the rooms I recommend for people on a budget

Just spent a week at The Stillwell and was very pleased with everything: price, location, staff, diner. Know going in that there are no frillls. We had excellent service, very clean rooms and John Cafe attached was great for breakfast! Free Wi Fi in the rooms which was great. Pickup at hotel for alot of LA attractions.

Stayed at this hotel in July 2014 for 2 nights. We were severely eaten by bed bugs in different rooms. Staff is rude and disrespectfully offering no help or sympathy. One agent was so rude to tell us he doesn’t care because the hotel passed inspection. A/C and refrigerator do not work. Most disgusting hotel.

The prices at this rundown hotel are far too much for the lousy air-conditioning and limited cable. You're lucky if you get a nice room with one bed let alone two. They are very strict on how many people per room, and you must wear wrist-bands to even go up the elevator after 6 O'clock. The time may vary but... More

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.
