Overall very good. Staff was extremely friendly, especially bellhop and valet. We had a king suite on the 6dth floor, unfortunately it was right next to the elevator which is typically noisy-but we didn't have any issues since the bedroom was in the back. Typically a suite like this has a separate bathroom in the living area, ours did not.
The "suite" was spacious. A sitting room w/bar, minifridge, Keurig coffeemaker and a large flat screen TV. The bedroom was also spacious w/a king bed, large tv, closet w/robes and slippers, vanity area, bathroom was separated from vanity area w/sliding frosted glass door, lots of amenities vanity kit, sewing kit...good lighting, plugs on both sides of the sink, good shower. The bed was comfortable but I did hear a lot of outside noise coming from the street.
I scheduled a massage and was suprised to learn they don't actually have a "spa". The spa set up in a modified guest room that had two small rooms w/massage tables. The space aside, the massage was very, very good.
The location is fantastic, directly across the street from LA Live...Nokia Center, Staples Center, ESPN Zone very convenient. We ate at Wolfgang Pucks Bar and Grill one afternoon-I highly recommend the Mango Cosmos!
Now for the "opportunities" comments-We ate at Figoly, the restaurant inside the hotel as it received some good ratings on another website. The staff was great and friendly but the food was terrible. I had a pasta dish that was very salty, my husband had the hanger steak...quality of the food, temperature and overall quality was average to poor...very disappointing. I didn't order room service so can't comment there.
Spa-I had planned on getting a mani/pani but it was only offered "in-room" for $150...no thanks.
The rooms were modern and recently renovated (was told the hotel was a Holiday Inn) but it didn't feel renovated...maybe because it was all mottled colors of brown and grey...felt a bit depressing instead of luxurious.
That being said, if I needed to stay downtown I would absolutely stay here again. The friendliness of the staff compensates for the blahness of the rooms. Just don't eat at FigOly.
