I have stayed at this hotel twice. It has the best serious poker room in LA, perhaps in the world. But it is a typical poker crowd - not the type you want to spend your vacation with.
The hotel is completely satisfactory if you plan to spend most of your time at the tables. If not, stay somewhere else. The rooms are large and clean, and quiet enough despite being close to I-5. The food is cheap and good.
Here is there bluff. If you check in on a weekend and have booked your travel on a website, they will try to upsell you to a better room. Don't do it. I booked a standard non-smoking room and it is fine. The desk person tried to tell me that when you book online you get the worst possible room in the hotel, and it will be a smoking room (I assume this is because I booked a non-smoking room - no doubt if you are a smoker you will be told only non-smoking rooms are available). I told him that I was promised a non-smoking room and would just take it up with the online travel company, who I expected would credit back the cost of the room to me and stiff the hotel. This did not amuse him, and a few minutes later he told me that he had checked the available rooms and UNFORTUNATELY (his word) there were no smoking rooms so he would have to give me my requested non-smoking room. Too bad for him, good for me.
