I stayed at Tyler's Place accomodation for four nights in July 2012 and I absolutely could not fault it. As a solo female traveller being in the States for the first time, I was apprehensive about staying in such a big city all on my own, but I have to say, everything about this accommodation put my mind at ease. From it's location to the manager of the property (Donald) with all of his very helpful advice, there was nothing that I was unhappy with. The area is just lovely; Tyler's Place is only a few minutes walk away from Sunset Blvd and the delights that the area of Silver Lake offers - so, so many lovely vintage shops and restaurants in a safe area. I found it to be perfect for someone who wouldn't want to be in the full thrash of tourist LA.
As for the accomodation itself, I was very impressed. A beautiful and gleaming apartment, all attended to by Donald himself. Modern decor and comfortable furnishings with a lovely homely feel to it. The kitchen was beautiful! Very well stocked, as was the bathroom. Donald provides ample books/leaflets on the local area and he is there for his guests 24/7. There is a lovely patio area which is lovely to enjoy breakfast in the sunshine in.
The apartment is very handy for public transport - I don't drive so relied on the local bus/train service. It's just a few minutes walk from the nearest bus stops that will give you access all through LA (plan your travel though, as travelling in LA takes time!). The wifi in the apartment is very good, so that enabled me to plan with no problems at all. The nearest train station (Santa Monica/Vermont Red Line Metro) is about 15 minutes walk away which wasn't a problem for me - a great way to see more of the local area. It's also only 10 minutes walk away from the supermarket so you're never too far away from buying necessities.
I really loved it here. I know for definite that when I return to LA again, this will be my base as there is so much more the area that I'd love to see. I would stay here any day over a hotel - the comfort of having my own space in such a lovely location was just perfect for me and made for a very personalised experience. I highly recommend Tyler's Place.
