“A sad spot”
Reviewed March 30, 2006

I attended a conference at this hotel, and was fore-warned not to book a room. I'm glad I did not. The area is loaded w/aggressive pan-hanlers and street-sleepers (my sympathies, but not a great vac experience). The desk had to call a cab each time, and warned me not to wait outside the door. The facilities were down at the heels and just sad.

I stay at the LAAC once a month and I love it. I especially appreciate the workout facilities. The buffet breakfast is wonderful and the staff treat you well. The robes and fruit baskets in your room are a welcome addition. I highly recommend staying here to my coworkers and friends.

I stayed here for 4 nights for a convention in LA. It's an 12 story building with the top three floors as a hotel. the hotel is in a bad area with lots of homeless people (you can't walk out at night which is the biggest drawback). also, cabs do NOT hang out at the LAAC, which means you have to call a cab, I had to walk to the Hyatt (5-10 minutes away) each time! Previously, I've stayed at the Omni which is in a much better area and a much better hotel.

Plus: free breakfast and athletic facilites are extensive with lots of athletic classes to choose from.Minus: my room was very dusty/dirty and the curtains and lamps were old. The lamp in the hallway on the 12th floor was dotted with dust and obviouly stained but no one bothered to clean it.
The athletic facilities need to be updated,too out of date
