Staff were helpful, room location (corner) was quiet, pool was nice. They did provide one roll of paper towels, toilet paper, towels, sink sponge, dish soap and dishwasher soap. We did not have a car so did not use the garage. We would stay there again.

I have stayed at several hotels in DTLA and LEVEL is by far the best. Suites are much larger than a normal hotel. The evening roof top cinema was awesome. We loved the pool and gym as well; everything was very clean. The staff were exceptional and when we visit LA again we have found our new home.

Los Angeles, California
I’ve been frequently visiting the Level since 2018. It used to be nice very well kept family friendly home away from home . Not anymore . It’s filled with young loud party seekers. The place reeks of marijuana. I normally don’t have a issue with that but the entire lobby smelled like weed and guests carelessly smoked in front of children in the pool & common area. I spent over $1200 for a 2 night stay . Our microwave wouldn’t open . The AC was horrible and didn’t work at all . Mind you it was HOT 4th of July weekend . We were never able to use the pool because it was over crowded with people smoking weed , drinking and blasting music. The rooms were halfway cleaned I had to wipe down the surfaces of the counters and tables with Clorox wipes they had stains from previous stay . DO NOT bring your children here if you don’t want them exposed to weed , alcohol, parties, loud music , profanity, and club like atmosphere. I wish I could get a refund not worth my hard earned money . I’m Currently looking for similar places where I can enjoy resort style amenities with my family without all the extra . Any suggestions would be great .

Watch out. Charge me for parking which is suppose to be included. They never mentioned even a word that they will charge me like $60 per day for parking. If i would know, i would park next door for $7 whole day No service in rooms - you will have to get yourself everything and call them for even small stuff like toilet paper. No room or bathroom cleaning. Do it yourself..

Thank you for being our guest and taking time to share your helpful feedback. Please accept our apologies for not meeting your expectations during your visit. While our parking price ($49.50 with tax per day) is listed online and at the garage entrance, we will review ways we can convey this information more clearly moving forward. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the suspended housekeeping services during this unprecedented time. We hope to bring back our housekeeping services in the near future as COVID restrictions continue to reduce in Los Angeles county.

We scheduled our 1st trip to Cali months before coming in April 2021. Since this would have been our 1st time on the West Coast I made sure to have all my ducks in a row. I emailed the manager & called on several occasions to double check everything. I informed the manager via email that my mother-in-law would be accompanying us so we would have a 5th person. He said that was fine because their suites have a pullout couch. Well when we got there the front desk worker told me they didn't have my room available (that I booked 3 months in advance). He said he had a 1 bedroom & I was like that's not going to work because we have 5 people. He then proceeds to say "O that was the other thing.. you can only have 4 to a room because of COVID." I then pulled out the email that the manager sent & all of a sudden a 2 bedroom was now available. However, it was not the one I booked which was with 2 king beds. We ended up switching rooms & moving to a 2 bedroom with 2 king beds & they gave me a discount on my stay plus free parking so it worked out well. Also my fiancé left his camera charger in the previous room we were staying in & I inquired several times about rather housekeeping found it or not & no one got back in touch with me. Other than that it was an ok hotel. Pretty average. The beds were not very comfortable but the bathrooms were very spacious.
