Lovely old hotel. Used to host the Academy Awards. Fantastic lobby and decor. Problem is, you want to stay there!! Rooms are small. Electrical outlets are non-existant and poorly thought out. There's a coffee maker, but not one outlet that can be reached by the cord unless you put the unit on the floor. When you put the unit on the floor the housekeeping folks keep moving it back to place where you cannot plug it in. NO WI-FI for under $40.00 per day - - I know LA is expensive, but for crying out loud. Not ready for a check in when we arrived after 7:00pm! 6 elevators, smaller than the desk you're reading this from - only 3 ever worked. Took a record 27 minutes to get an elevator one morning. Tried the stairs - - very frightening, exposed wiring, dark corners, nasty. Waited for the elevator, just got up 30 minutes early so I was sure I wasn't stranded upstairs. Go visit, take a few photos, stay somewhere else.
