This place is temporarily closed. The Mayfair Hotel Los Angeles is a hidden gem located in Downtown Los Angeles. Built in 1926 and renovated in 2018, the hotel expertly weaves the art-deco aesthetics of the roaring 20s with edgy cultural elements of modern Los Angeles. The Mayfair is where adventurous spirits come to have spirited adventures – a haven that attracts and creates culture. From artists and musicians to writers and performers, the crowd is always an eclectic mix of tastemakers and life tasters. The rooms are newly renovated and amenitized for all business, leisure and entertainment needs, and feature contemporary interiors with stunning views of the iconic LA skyline or the beautiful Hollywood Hills. In the breathtaking lobby, enjoy a cocktail at M Bar or bites from the bar menu. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily at LOCALA Kitchen+Bar, showcasing the talents of Chef Karo Patpatyan, an LA-born, French-taught and Spago-trained chef whose cuisine takes inspiration from the multi-cultural communities of his native Los Angeles.

Old and most of the stuff just doesn’t work. They are trying to get it updated but I just don’t see this place coming together. At least not without attempting to update it on a large scale. It is convenient to the convention center though.

We are so happy that we had our wedding at the Mayfair Hotel! From the beginning, Spencer and Rasean were so wonderful to work with for coordinating our on-site wedding details and setting up our hotel block, respectively. Spencer helped coordinate meetings, tastings, walk-throughs, and accommodated several other requests to help us plan and communicate with each of our vendors. He worked so well with our coordinator leading up to and on the day of our wedding. Our food, from the in-house LOCALA kitchen, was delicious and we were also able to have custom drinks for our bar menu that were absolutely amazing. As expected, there were a few hiccups on the day of our wedding, but we were so grateful that Spencer and the management team were able to work with my coordinator to resolve all issues seamlessly. Last, but certainly not least, the Mayfair is absolutely a breathtaking venue. Recently remodeled, the hotel is gorgeous and has spectacular areas for photos (and just to enjoy the view!), including a rooftop patio and bar, an atrium with plenty of natural light, a gorgeous ballroom, and art installations throughout the hotel. It made the perfect backdrop to our wedding celebration. We felt so lucky to snag the first wedding in this space- and it went so perfectly! We definitely recommend the Mayfair Hotel for weddings and events-- we wish we could do it all over again! -Rachel and Joe, January 11, 2020 (Photo credit: Erin Marton Photography)

I have been stayed many times at The Mayfair Hotel going back some 5 years while the restoring and remodeling was getting started and progressed through the years. The building and lobby and bar is marvelous a work of art in their selfs. The Gallery's Art wonderful to see and enjoy - much of the old LA and history is everywhere. The rooms are pleasant and accommodating. The location is perfect for visiting LA new and old town. I am an 80 years young man Photographer and Wood art professional who loves the Hotel. They take good care of me and all my needs while I'm there. May Lady Partner also loves coming to The Mayfair with me! I highly recommend the Hotel. Service by all the staff and attendants has be wonderful!.

I recently stayed at the Mayfair on a business trip for one night. Worked all day and had to get up early. When I checked in, the woman that checked me in could care less who I was or even looked at me. She put me in a room right next to the elevators, which were loud as hell. So I went back to get another room. I dealt with a second woman at the front desk who was equally uninterested in helping me or communicating. At this point, I'm not feeling very welcome or stoked to stay in this 'nice hotel'. The new room was kinda funky and not really what I expected for what I was paying but was too tired to deal with it. Well this change in rooms would prove to be a disaster. I went to bed at 9:30pm and awoke at 10:30 to a loud group in the hall. I brushed it off and tried to go back to sleep. At 11:15 it was apparent that this group was right across the hall from me having a raging party. I opened the door and hotel security was already there to fix it. Yay, sleep again. Nope. This continued for 2 more hours with the party getting bigger, louder and filling the halls. I called the front desk to change rooms and they couldn't because they were full they said. Their efforts to stop this party were so weak. I heard one security guard say: "I don't give a f%#& what these people do in the room" as he left for the 3rd time. Awesome. By 2:30 the party was finally dispersed into the hallway and in front of my door only to yell, argue and scream for 30+ minutes before finally leaving. Fell asleep by 3:30am. Had to be up at 7am. When I left, I informed the front desk of my horrible night and they seemed clueless that this event happened. They offered to comp my parking. Not good enough I said, so they took 1/2 off my bill, but kept the parking on it. Needless to say, this was one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at matched with the apathy of the staff. The room was tiny and just lackluster, and for $300 for one night, totally not worth it. All that aside, the fact that they didn't shut this party down the first time around baffles me. There were 30 people in a room made for 2 people. Stay at your own risk, but hey, if you want to go party and not sleep, then this hotel is for you... the staff won't give a damn either way.

I have stayed at the Mayfair Hotel for the past 2 years as it was close to Good Samaritan Hospital where I teach several times a year. Since my first stay when the lobby was being remodeled I have been pleasantly surprised with each new change. The latest was the opening of the fitness room and pool. What a beautiful design and landscaping and view of the city skyline, especially at night from the pool! What an ideal place for a party or just to decompress after a long day. The original and diverse artwork at the hotel never fails to impress, which often changes and offers artists a showcase as some pieces are for sale. Each floor is unique and dynamic in terms of art. There was a great band I enjoyed in the bar on my last night and a warm and charming waitress, Nicole who served me. The help at the hotel is wonderful from the front desk (John was great in particular), porters, and valets who daily brought my car and doorman Manny who welcomed me by name. He has served me graciously the past 2 years and stated he has worked at this hotel for 20 years! When I had an issue with my room the first night (my neighbors partying at 12:30 pm loudly, they addressed the issue immediately and moved me to an upgraded deluxe room the next day at no charge). I love the convenience, personal service and feeling of being "home" when I stay at the Mayfair. Somehow they have managed to keep the elegance of the 1929 era that the hotel was built but made it contemporary and cutting edge with the art and other touches in a perfect blend for any age guest. It is also very affordable compared to other downtown hotels of similar stature and very clean with nice bedding. I recommend the Mayfair Hotel to tourists, business travelers, those wanting a romantic getaway or simply to have a fun evening eating at the great restaurant and enjoying the bar, pool view, and beautiful decor and art.

This is my new favorite venue to DJ weddings. If youre in the hunt for a wedding DJ, look me up at DJWillGill.Com. As far as the hotel, the lobby is cool, but the upstairs at their new wedding venue is a whole other world! The first wedding of 2020 I DJ'd was here. Coincidentally, it was also The Mayfair Hotel's first wedding held in this new space. Alot of firsts that night, lol. The wedding went off without a hitch. I dont usually use this adjective, but the night was magical. I recently upgraded my subwoofer system and brought it to the wedding. Maybe it was my system, maybe it was the shape of the room, but the sound was so crisp and clean, the dance floor was packed the whole night. Honestly, this was all thanks to the epic team of vendors led by the venue manager, Spencer Passey of The Mayfair. Cheers to the next time we work together Mayfair!

This is only a 10-12 minute walk to two metro stations & very close to downtown, so the location is very central. But the downside to that is the constant traffic noise from outside, it's basically as if you're trying to sleep with the windows open! I asked for a quiet room (which I doubt exist with the old windows) & although the room itself was spacious, there was only a double pull out sofa bed for our bed. It wasn't uncomfortable, just small for the size of the room& unusual. The room smelt a bit musty but I couldn't see anything to say it wasn't clean. The gym & pool opened the day we arrived, the gym is very small but better than nothing I guess. Very glad we only stayed 3 nights though!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review, we appreciate it. Please know that we will be discussing your comments with management and will do whatever we can to address your concerns. I'm sorry to hear that the noise was such a significant issue; we have sealed the windows to try and prevent any disturbance from outside but being an historic building, there are some restrictions to the amount of structural changes we can make. I do hope that you will consider staying with us again the next time you are in Los Angeles.

I stayed here for one night. The hotel itself is very nice, although the road outside doesn’t seem the most safe. I was allowed to check-in early, which was very helpful. The room superficially is well decorated & clean. For some reason the bed is a pull-down contraption, which seems pointless in a hotel room. The bed was, however, very comfortable. There are no power points next to the bed. There isn’t enough lighting in the room. The TV and free WiFi were good. There was a lot of single-use plastic - disposable coffee cups & water glasses, which could be replaced with glass & ceramic (would look more luxurious as well as being more environmentally friendly). The shower was powerful, although a little small. The free coffee wasn’t the best, and there wasn’t enough milk provided. There is no mini bar, and one presumes the tap water is safe to drink. A luggage stand would also have been useful. I wouldn’t be opposed to staying here again, but it wouldn’t be my first choice.
