The hotel is spacious and amply accommodated the conference I was attending, but the location sucks. It's attached to the Grauman's Chinese Theater and shopping mall complex. It's one of the few areas of LA that feels walkable, except that it's mobbed with tourists who are literally lying on across the sidewalk because the Walk of Fame runs through the block. It took a long time to walk anywhere from the hotel as a result, and there's really nothing in the immediate vicinity but tourist traps, so I would've rather stayed in another part of the city. But the hotel itself was unobjectionable. Very clean, standard rooms and no problems.
