This place is something else - They do everything old school - real keys (not swipe cards) no computer - no email confirmation. The rooms have no iron, no alarm clock, no cups or coffee pot in the rooms. NOT good for a business trip - I was scheduled to stay for a business conference but there was no iron in the room - not very impressive to show up in a wrinkled suit.
Additionally, it is really really dark with gold and red walls making it quite scary if you are not comfortable with big city LA - Coming in at night....Creepy! The wall décor - not child appropriate - my daughter asked why there were naked ladies on the wall (it was supposed to be artistic, but....)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casablanca collides with ancient Arabia at the lush watering hole in ravishing garden setting overrun with boungainvillea, spiny cactus and succulents. Just a basketball's throw from Staples Center, the Figueroa opened in 1925 as a YWCA and turned into a hotel after the Depression. Oodles of celebrities frequent the place for pre- and post-concert parties, fashion shows and the like, but no one at the hotel crows about it, which is why the place has come to epitomize the ultimate in laid-back - even self-effacing - style. The ornately tiled bar with its flickering candles, well-worn wooden stools and tranquil blue pool are the perfect place to enjoy a mojito with fresh muddled lime. ... more less
