We enjoyed our short stay at this Sheraton. It is within walking distance to a lot of restaurants. The weekend we were there, there was a street festival outside the front door of the hotel which added to our enjoyable weekend.

Great staff, nice rooms, fantastic location. Walking distance to USC, restaurants, bars and shops. Lots to see and do. Loved it and looking forward to going back to see family and friends. This Historic District is a must see!

This is a surprisingly nice hotel I must say! Uber fast valets greeted me at the curb and stayed with me through check-in up to my room. Front desk was friendly and efficient during check in. I got in late with barley enough time to grab a drink on the rooftop bar which had a wonderful view of the moon... More

I booked through a "name your own price" website for the first time ever otherwise I would have never chosen this property based on web reviews. Once it was booked there was no chance of refund/cancellation. Parking is a nightmare. I drove through the public parking deck (which is a block away)twice without finding a parking place. I checked in... More

I attempted to make a reservation for this hotel through their web page. I was inadvertenly directed to the Expedia site. I hit the back button to search for rates and signed up for 3 days instead of 1 and accidently completed my transaction. When I realized what I did, I called the hotel to change my reservation. Expedia immediatley... More

The location is downtown, you can park on the street and it is safe, or you can park in a garage with or without valet parking. The bed was pretty good, the room was a little small, the building is old but clean, and could use a little sprucing up here and there.

My room prices were raised because of two events in town. Paid $245 total for one room for one night. Room needed a little extra cleaning. Wooden floors were nice but creaked when walked upon. Music from hall intercom filtered into room all night. Vault bar was closed. Rooftop bar had one bartender and was running out of liquor and... More

Checked into Club Level room (16th floor) and it was a bit small. Bathroom door was locked and I couldn't access. No mini fridge in room. I thought they were standard. Went to front desk and they only put them in rooms, if requested and they didn't have anymore. They did claim to send someone to open the BR door.... More

Stayed there for one night on business in standard king room. Several problems: -When I sat at the desk in my room to work on my laptop, I suddenly noticed that my white shirt was stained.

We reserved a room with 2 queen beds at a rate of $169.00 per night. When we arrived we discovered that the refrigerator did not work which was unfortunate because we brought grocery items that needed refrigeration. We asked guest services to address the problem and were informed that maintenance could not fix and there were no other refrigerators available.... More
