One of my favorite hotels. Check in can take a bit long depending on when you arrive; rooms are clean, spacious, and tastefully designed. Views are great, may want to not get room with views of Nokia Plaza as the light show may keep you awake. Parking is easy access. Illy coffee bar downstairs, and Starbucks just accross the way. We've stayed here for events at Staples, Hollywood Bowl, and Paramont-always convenient. The Spa is actually shared with the Ritz, but offers fantastic (if a bit pricey) massages.
The hotel lobby can be jumping, but it is in LA Live. Highly recommend.
