I was in LA for meetings and a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. A number of people suggested this very modern Loews and it does seem to be the best hotel in the area. First the good parts - the lobby is well laid out and features a nice bar. The staff was incredibly friendly and check-in was fast and efficient. The free WiFi is fairly fast and it was easy to connect. The rooms are well laid out with USB connections on the desk and bedside lamps that can charge a tablet (this is a great feature). Now the parts that make this review average - my room was somewhat worn with some cracking paint, the air conditioning is LOUD and necessary because the windows do not open so that cut into my sleep, the room seemed under illuminated (a bit dark) but possibly that has to do with their environmental practices, and the beds were not the most comfortable but not terrible. There is some noise from US101 (Hollywood freeway) but the windows do a pretty good job of dampening that. The location could not be better - a 15 minute walk to the Bowl and just a block up from Hollywood Blvd. So on balance it was average. That being said, I would probably stay there again.
