This hotel was very nice, and probably pushes a four but I couldn't quite get it there, perhaps because the location and the property weren't my kind of "vibe". To be fair I was there for a very quick overnight and didn't take advantage of the property as some others might. Despite a very large event occurring on the roof deck that evening (making this area inaccessible to mere mortals such as myself who is not a size two, who does not wear Blahniks and who - go figure - wasn't invited!) check in was uneventful, efficient and as expected; I was upgraded under my booking terms and I requested / received a quiet-side-of-the-house room. Valet parking was ridiculously expensive at $33 per day. Car retrieval the next morning took longer than expected given that I called down before I left my room and before I checked out. Common areas were quite nice and well kept with interesting finishes. The important things for me WERE present - a very comfortable bed and a clean room, with relative quiet. Bonuses were the size of the room (huge! with a game table, a sectional, a work desk, a bar with fridge, and plenty of flow space) and the large bathroom (the structural support in the middle of it notwithstanding). It was nice to have a small fridge. I might have rated this higher if it had a more comfortable task chair at the desk and perhaps a larger flat screen TV. The bath had nice amenities and better than typical towels, however, the open double shower made for a wet mess outside the shower (form over function problem here). The lighting was fair. I am always disappointed when a multi-million dollar renovation is done and they leave the crappy and original sliding glass doors in place. Really? And a sliding screen might have been nice. It was a beautiful night yet I couldn't leave the door open as bugs were drawn in. The extra large and furnished patio / deck was a nice touch but quickly presented as a negative when people on smaller decks above were smoking (yuck) and enjoying themselves (understandable but unwelcome noise).
For me - and I've lived in LA in the past, for 15 years so I'm not a stranger to the area - I didn't care for the neighborhood but I can see why some may. The property entry was very hard to find and I found the neighborhood itself dreary and gritty. To be fair, I'm more of an OC environment girl (pretty over gritty for me). Again, to some this might be a taste of West Hollywood that they would expect and will like.
I don't have any negative reports, just for me it wasn't my ideal. I was happy to be able to walk to restaurants. Also happy to find one of my favorite NYC haunts (Rosa Mexicano) nearby. I ate at Burger Lounge which have Belgian fries worthy of the walk. But I digress.
