This hotel/hostel had once been a grand place to stay in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. The reception area was beautiful, with lots of marble and mirrors. WIFI was available and easily accessed.
Our room was basic, but clean, with an unusual chair in the shape of a hand. We had shared facilities. We could not get access to the shower, as there appeared to be only one on our floor and it was in constant use. The toilets too were often 'busy'.
Breakfast was good - plenty of choice and as much as you liked, including the biggest waffle imaginable.
The location is central, but noisy - horns, sirens etc. The staff were courteous, but when we registered we were advised that a $50 deposit would be required and would not be debited back to our account until the maid had checked our room, which was after we left. Also we were advised to call a taxi to take us to Grand Central Station from the internal direct phone in the reception area. However, we discovered there is a direct bus link and one tenth of the cost.
We did not read up on the history of the hotel until we came back.
