Hotel: Lots of personality! Do not stay here if you're expecting a room like the JW Marriott. The rooms are spacious and clean and my room had a mini fridge and a hair dryer. There wasn't an ironing board in the room, but if you need one, they will provide. Because it's an old building, there isn't a lot of electrical plugs, but they will loan you a power strip. I found the staff to be incredibly accommodating and nice. The traveler's photos are an excellent indication of what the Figeuroa looks like.
The only negatives I found - there wasn't a bedside clock so if you book here, bring a little travel clock (which is what I'll be doing the next time I have to work in LA); I was on the 10th floor and it was a bit loud; if you are used to sleeping on feather pillows, bring one.
Neighborhood: extremely convenient to the convention center, Staples Center, LA Live, loads of restaurants, and I felt, a VERY safe area. I went for a lovely run every morning up Figueroa to 2nd Street and explored a few streets in between to Grand. I never felt nervous or uncomfortable during my morning runs. There's a grocery store 3 blocks away if you're trying to save a little money on your meal allowance.
