We were only at the LA Hotel Downtown for two nights over New Year's and spent very little time in the hotel itself. However, we were very impressed with the quality service from all of the staff during what was an incredibly busy time between the holiday and large football crowd.
As others have noted, the hotel is undergoing renovations. However, during our short stay the only noticeable impact was on the hotel restaurant. That space is under construction, so a temporary space has been set up.
The hotel is located downtown and convenient to several restaurants (mostly chain) and to LA Live/Staples Center. Our main purpose for visiting was to attend the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, so the hotel's easy access to the Metro was important to us (about a 3 block walk).
While the New Year's rates were certainly not what I would consider "cheap," they were comparable with the other large hotels in the vicinity. The king sized bed was extremely comfortable, and the room was large enough for the nice crib they provided for our baby. The rooms were relatively well insulated, as we did not hear much in the way of noise from the hallway or other rooms. Some slight street noise could be heard from the 11th floor, but nothing distracting enough to keep us from sleeping.
Overall, it was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff during a very busy time that was most impressive to us.
