The O Hotel is conveniently located in downtown LA for those who are looking for a short stay. It is fine for the traveler who will be concentrating on an event downtown. We were there for the Pink concert at the Staples Center and the hotel is a very short walk to the Staples Center.
Things I liked about this hotel. It is small, very personal and the staff is exceptional. It was also very quiet. The rooms are very contemporary in design and have your major necessities handled.
Things I didn't like about this hotel. No hotel parking, no valet and NO help with baggage. There is a public parking lot next door but be prepared to lug your stuff. I DID NOT appreciate their "smoking" section in front of the hotel. Every time we entered or exited the hotel someone was there smoking, huge turn off. The rooms are small, but we weren't planning on staying in the room for any length of time and worked for us. Definitely would not work if you were staying there more than a couple of days.
Things I despised about this hotel, they force a $14 surcharge on you. Whether you want it or not, you are going to pay $14 which covers the 2 bottles of cheap water in your room and your continental breakfast the following morning (we did not eat the breakfast it was severely lacking). I was not happy with this surcharge. The other thing that really annoyed me is that no pets are allowed. In this day and age when dogs have become part of our traveling routine, there is no excuse for this. Lastly, if you do not get a break in room charge from a discount site, its EXPENSIVE to stay here.
