I first stayed here many years ago when it was the Marriott Downtown Los Angeles. Now that Hyatt has begun to remodel it, it's almost a completely different place. The lobby area is brighter and more contemporary. The folks at check-in were quite welcoming. The room did not disappoint, though the dresser seemed to be a leftover from the Marriott days. It was the only thing I didn't like about the room, though. As a business traveler, I appreciated that there were outlets everywhere so the devices I was carrying could be conveniently and simultaneously charged. Also, the lighting at bedside allowed for many options: lamps on the night stands; reading lights attached to the headboard; and another switch for lights above the headboard. Very thoughtful, I thought! The bed, as others have pointed out, was quite comfortable. And while the outside of the building is not particularly inspiring, I do like that there are floor-to-ceiling windows. Now, I'm sure I'm in the minority here because I asked to be in a room that faced the 110 Freeway. I liked the activity of the cars at night and I found watching the Downtown LA traffic fascinating at "rush" hour. I thought the windows were well-insulated; I had no trouble at all going to bed and sleeping soundly. The gentlemen who ran valet parking were pretty cordial and my car was always ready for me when I got down to the lobby. The room rate I received was great and I hope that they'll be able to keep it reasonable once the remodel is complete. I've stayed at the Westin Bonaventure, the Millennium Biltmore, Hilton Checkers, and the Doubletree, and I will definitely stay here the next time I am in Los Angeles for business. By the way, a unique way to spend an evening is to visit Little Tokyo, just a few minutes drive away. My go-to restaurant is Komasa, but be prepared to wait. There are several unique shops to spend a few minutes in and, during the day, the Japanese American National Museum is always worth a visit, too. Thanks to the folks at Hyatt for a great stay at the LA Hotel Downtown.
