Having been to LA four times for work, I'd always booked too late to get accommodation near LA Live and the Convention Centre, instead having to stay around Hollywood and then make the trek downtown. This year I didn't make the same mistake, and got in early to reserve a place at this hotel.
Across the road from LA Live and a short 5 minute walk from the convention centre, it's PERFECTLY located for people in town for a conference or event. The hotel itself is clean, but understandably pricy for the event (E3). Staff were pleasant and helpful, and organised a relaxing ride back to LAX when we checked out. The bar is also quite nice, hanging over the street, and is a pleasant place to have a cheeky drink before bed. The restaurant is top class but pricy.
The room was as expected -- big, clean bed with comfy pillows. However, the bathroom had zero ventilation, which made it tough to have a shower. Also, the iron and ironing mat were both broken: the iron leaked water, while the ironing mat couldn't stay upright. But apart from that, the room was nice.
Highly recommended for anyone hoping to be close to LA Live, Staple Center and the convention center.
