My sister and I went to a concert in LA at the Teragram Ballroom and wanted to stay at a hotel close to the venue. The Mayfair fit the bill perfectly as it was only steps away! That was the best thing about it. Lets start from the beginning at check-in, shall we? The young man at the counter was... More

A very nice room, comfortable beds. Great views of downtown LA. Bathroom was little small, but nice. For the price of room it was a good value. The hotel is located west of the main downtown area, restaurants are within walking distance.

I was pleasantly surprised at this quaint boutique hotel. The room was stylish, unique and boasted sweeping views of downtown LA I loved the black and white decor of the room. The hotel is under renovation so hotel amenities were not available. The Mayfair Hotel is conveniently located in downtown. The immediate neighborhood is up and coming with a 3-block... More

I stayed at the Historic Mayfair Hotel in LA and it was the worse experience ever. In all fairness, the hotel is under construction. However that was their excuse for everything. Housekeeping is horrific. All they do is swap your towels and make your bed. THEY DO NOT CLEAN!!!!!!! At all........ They don't vacuum, my sheets were never changed until... More

Not a bad place but should be avoided until construction is completed. Small hotel, small rooms and very small washroom but lots of history behind it. Area outside the hotel is not appropriate for kids. Will visit again but only after construction is completed.

Really nice hotel. Manny really helpful despite the reception staff screaming his name when he was needed. Room lovely. Shower amazing! Bed exceptionally comfortable. Unfortunately the girls on reception didn't want to be there and were unfriendly. Hotel is a good location for 7th street metro. About a 10 minute walk and connects you to Hollywood and Santa Monica etc.... More

Rooms were lovely, the shower was fantastic! The bed was the most comfortable we've slept in the USA. Area not the best but a quick walk to the metro on 7th. Red line to Hollywood and expo to Santa Monica. Deposit seems excessive, maybe a reflection on the clientele and neighbourhood. But a lovely hotel, mannie the concierge was fantastic... More

Room is ok however no bathroom lock was disappointing. Not just locks, the bathroom itself was VERY small. No exhaust in the bathroom to let the smell go away. The hotel is getting renovated. It is visible very well from everything you see in the hotel. Also the WIFI in the hotel is so poor, it never did worked. The... More

Very small rooms. The bathroom doesn't even have place to hold your toothbrush! And one of the rooms we were in started leaking water from the bathroom! And to top it, restaurant was shut down. Air conditioning cannot be controlled! We cut short our stay. If there's any positive, it is probably just the fact that it's in downtown (but... More
