Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.

Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff is very helpful and kind. Close to many downtown features, including The Grand Central Market. Very disappointed to find the parking has gone from $15 a night to $40 a night this year

Kawasaki Hotel is a good central location. Near Metro system and easy walk to many fun things to do in LA. Rooms are small, but clean and beds are comfortable. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable about LA. Would stay here again.

The rooms are really small and not soundproofed at all. F.x we heard the people 2 rooms from ours having sex every night. We stayed on the top floor with two-sided windows which was ok. The room was fine though, had TV, mini fridge and microwave. Housekeeping changes towels upon

The only thing we liked about this place was it is near the grand central market. The room is rather small and the air conditioner is rather noisy at night. We had some difficulty in finding a convenience store as we arrived late at night and we walked 10 to 15 minutes to look

Travelled in Oct 18. Booked this hotel as a base for all the touristy things, not the best location for Hollywood/Beverly hills..everything is an uber drive to and from downtown! This hotel would be great for business purposes as you are in the heart of LA financial district.

Grand Central Market is around the corner, Wholefoods a few blocks away in walking distance and there is a smaller shop close by. Depends on what you need. No iron in the room. I’d send them an email to ask. Also ask about shops when you arrive and they give you a map and mark the shops for you. Easy.

Is there free parking at the Kawada Hotel?
The hotel does have parking, but it is Valet Only. It WAS $15 a day, which was reasonable, but I am staying there in February and was told the rate has gone up to $40 a day! (Plus tipping getting car in & out). There are several places nearby to park much cheaper, but none have in & out privileges.

I'm pretty sure that there are a Carl's Jr. and a Pollo Loco within 2 blocks of the Kawada on 3rd St. and Broadway.

"We had a room on a Main Street and noise was not a problem."
"Don't stay here unless you want your blood sucked!!"
"Avoid w 2nd and Hill st sides of the property if all possible"
"We had a room right over the street and the city houses did not keep us up."
"A large hotel, ask for a quiet room so as not to be on the street."
$130 - $255 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
