It was my first time being in the LA area, so I didn't know really what to expect. This place, the hotel, and the casino, gave me a pretty poor view of LA.
Upon arriving, I hated that the parking was very confusing and I didn't want to carry my bag for a block or two, so I used the valet service. I didn't like the fact that they charge for valet, even if it was $2 a day...
The valet boy was more professional and friendlier than the front desk staff as I later noticed. The front desk people did not speak the best English and weren't the politest. (But I think this is just a certain LA type attitude)
The outside of the hotel is not the best, the inside lobby is pretty glamorous. The hallways and elevator area are pretty nice and unique. The room looked decently clean.
The flat screen was nice.
I didn't like the fact that the fridge was a 'pay what you take one'... There was no room to put your own drinks in there. The view was terrible from the window.
I paid like $120 a day with taxes and valet... I don't think it was worth it.... I'd pay maybe $80 with taxes to stay there again, but no more than that.
Now lets get to the casino.
The casino has the largest poker room in the world I believe. I have never seen anything like it. I tried playing a little, and I must say, the place SMELLED BAD, and the tables were obviously very used/old/dirty... The LA people were very pushy and had an almost rude personality ... (but again, this is just an LA thing I think). Not somewhere I'd want to go very often.
