“Luxury hotel, downtown LA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

This place is amazing and is truly a luxury hotel. It is comparable with a hotel in Asia. Booked via booking.com and got an amazing rate. Got upgraded to a Junior suite which was spacious.

The suite had a Staples center view in the foyer and a panorama of the LA and the highway in the far distance.

This hotel being brand new has clean amenities and shower had good pressure.

Downside would be no bathtub and valet was quite expensive. Parked at the staples center property which was only few steps away.

It's a 20 mins drive to Universal and 10 mins to Hollywood. Would be excellent for concert or match-goers as it is within the same property.

This is a very nice hotel: the lobby is open and beautiful, there is a roof top pool, the pool bar is large, the gym is great - lots of positives (although I can't figure out why they built the pool in a configuration that it lacks afternoon sun and effectively become a shadowed wind-tunnel by 4pm). If you are staying here for a Staples Center event, it is across the street. As well, during check-in, the platinum upgrade to a large two-room suite never hurts. The bartender at the pool bar was great: a really down to earth guy who was full of good suggestions for drinks and restaurants (as well as opionions on what to avoid).

The only drawback to my stay was that it was clear that my room (968) had somebody smoking in it at some point. The smoky residue just can't be covered up with volumes of perfumed cleaner. I was too busy to switch rooms but it was clear to me and to my friend who ran up from the pool area (first comment: "Man - your room stinks").

Beautiful hotel with so much to offer,! Our room was so beautiful and had a wonderful view of la live, the hotel has a pretty busy bar scene and is nice to go down and relax and enjoy the music and the atmosphere. Great restaurant and friendly waiters . Would love to stay again soon

This is a fantastic location, great lobby, the best valet parking anywhere. Picking up your car in the lower level on the red carpet is an excellent and efficient idea. All of the attendants were more than willing to speed up the process. 5 stars for that alone.

The Illy coffee shop in the lobby was a wonderful change. Wolfgang Puck's lounge on the 24th floor has a fantastic view of the city and great small plates that satisfy.

Great Hotel, great modern rooms, fast elevators and a great location, close to everything.

Room Tip: I had a standard double-bed room on the 14th floor and have no complaints

My first time here and definitely a great place to stay if you are going to an event at the Staples Center. It's right outside the hotel. The hotel is a very busy place. The lobby is bustling with people and activity so if you are looking for a quiet little place, this is not it. But if you want a place that's very nice, great staff and a great room...this is a great place. Just know you have to valet park...no self parking and it's $40 per day. They were super speedy though when I checked out and needed my car.

Room Tip: Higher floors provide a nice view

This is a great place to stay if you are going to an event at the Staples Center or Nokia but I had a room facing "Live" and the lights, noise and billboards made it difficult to sleep. Ask for a room on the other side.

Very cool bar and restaurant in the lobby and easy access to Live. Also a Starbucks just outside the backdoor,

This hotel is really great for business. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Housekeeping was really pleasant too...frankly, everyone on the staff was very hospitable. I stayed for 5 days/4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Restaurants are near and a small shopping plaza. There is also a Target nearby as well. It is downtown so it's not too close to the everything but not too far either...just depends on where you are trying to go. Other than that, great stay and would stay again if need be.
