I was advised to stay away from Downtown LA and yes, it may not be as pretty as the rest of LA but it is easy to commute from and has a few restaurants and shops to cater for your needs.
Taxi drivers will know it as the old Marriot so make sure you explain that to them if they have not heard of it. When I stay there, it was undergoing some renovations which were not too hampering. The staff were friendly and advised me on how to catch the blue bus to Santa Monica and where to catch the underground up to Hollywood. It is cheaper than staying other places in LA because it is a bit far from anything but I was mainly there for work with a little sight seeing and found it to be very satisfactory. There was a fridge to store a few items bought from the Target down the road about ten mins walk and a tea and coffee machine.
