If you want to experience what grand hotels were like in the 1920s this would be a good choice.
If you are into motion picture history this hotel was an early place that the Academy Awards where held and was a major gathering spot for movie stars.
They just don't build them like this any more.
The lobby, main hall and public area very impressive.
(Ask to see the Crystal Ball Room if is not open.)
I had a Club King room that was well decorated and while not a huge room still a good size with a comfortable bed.
Yes like other reviewers I found the bathroom small but remember this hotel was built in the 1920s.
Everything was very clean.
The breakfast and evening snacks on the club level had a good variety of items and at least one hot selection.
Limited dining choices in the hotel.
No free WiFi in room ( available in club lounge).
Some areas near the the hotel looked rough but that seems to be the way downtown LA is.
