Needed a break for the weekend, booked a two-night stay here using points. It was insanely hot in LA during the visit. The hotel was calm and had very good air-conditioning. Very few guests visible during my stay. All wore masks and respected the space. It's a downtown hotel but being in Little Tokyo, the area was clean and some restaurants were open with outside seating. Room looks to have been refreshed, the furnishings looked new and beds very comfortable. The bathroom is tiny and the tub and shower weren't so great. Overall though had a very comfortable stay. Self-parking for two nights was $83. About the same as most LA hotels. I would definitely return when in the downtown area.
I stayed here for one night on business. I'm a Hilton Honors member and try to seek out Hilton owned hotels whenever possible when traveling for work. This hotel was located near where I needed to be so it was perfect in location for me. The hotel has a bar and also a restaurant with another bar. I ate at the restaurant for dinner and the food was excellent, though not cheap. I also ate at the restaurant's breakfast buffet for breakfast. It was a good buffet with lots of choices. The buffet is not typically free, but I received it for free due to my status with Hilton. There is a Starbucks, not directly inside the hotel, but right next to it. Very handy if you desire something more than regular coffee. The rooms themselves are nice and clean. Looks like it couldn't have been too long ago that they were refurbished. Comfortable beds, free wifi, and a mini fridge in the room. I did use the hotel gym on this trip and was impressed. Lots of treadmills, ellipticals, and weights. The gym also had towels and water for use. I did not park a car, but they do have on-site garage parking for a fee. I don't think the parking fee is cheap at any of the downtown hotels. The only negative of the hotel was the outside noise. At least on the side I was located. It is near the police department so there were sirens quite often through the night and if you're a light sleeper this could be a problem. Not sure how much better this will be anywhere else downtown though. Overall I would recommend this hotel.…
The hotel did a good job of making me feel like it was virus safe. The room had a seal on it after it was cleaned to ensure no one else entered. The hotel personnel were wearing masks and the front door was open. I did wipe down all the knobs and switches in the room anyway. There were no amenities due to the virus. I thought they could at least provide room service, but it does not seem that hotels are doing that. I was in room 825 thinking I would be far enough away from Los Angeles Rd, but I could still hear noise. It did not keep me awake though. It was easy to get in and out of the parking lot, but you pay $40/day. My only complaint was I soaked my leg that evening and the water was nice and hot. The next morning when I went to shower, the water was barely warm.
We stayed here one night for a visit to the USC Keck Hospital. Stayed here on a Hilton Honors points stay. The room was clean and I found the bed comfortable. WIFI worked well. This is a very loud and busy area of Downtown LA. Sirens going off several times each hour. Self-parking available and it is NOT free. There was no food service at this time due to covid, so no breakfast and no room service available. We found the customer service was not very welcoming or accommodating. We were not recognized as Diamond members (or it didn't matter) no Doubletree cookie (probably also due to COVID) Life is a lot more difficult these days and it showed.
In the heart of Downtown L.A., this was a nice hotel to stay in. Of course, there is a lot of hustle and bustle with sirens blaring constantly and somebody had been setting off fireworks at night. The bed could have been more comfortable - it was soft and spongy and not a firm bed to support your back. With Covid-19 rampant, restaurants are shutdown and so the easiest way to go for food is pizza delivery. Front desk staff guy was excellent. Self parking is $38. Valet is not happening due to the virus.
