“Not quite up to the Price”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

For the price I paid, ($119 at the time) I would have hoped they would have included SOME sort of breakfast (bagels, cereal something!). But they did not, and their breakfast at their restaurant downstairs was $11. No thanks.
So I saved some $$ by walking just down the street to 7-11 and buying breakfast foods there.
There are a few vending machines in the lobby where you check in at. Though again, it is cheaper so just go down the street and buy water and snacks over there instead.
When I initially walked into the room the AC was on 81...and I arrived during a 100 heatwave so that was not fun. It took over a hour to get the entire room down to 75 degrees because there is just one central vent above the bathroom door that provides the AC.
Room had a microwave and fridge that worked fine (although fridge was a bit sticky and hard to open at times).
Room was otherwise clean, sheets, pillows, and bathroom etc were all nice. Pillows and the bed were very comfy.
The shampoo, conditioner, lotions and soaps they provided smelled great and I liked them. Plenty of towels too
Nice flat screen TV, but there's only about 6 channels, and the other stations were in Spanish or Korean. So no don't look forward to any cable here.
They also had free WiFi which is great because other places may charge for it. But don't be expected any fast connection, it is very slow. I wouldn't recommend watching videos that you have to stream. But otherwise it does work.
Neighborhood is okay, I felt safe enough to walk to 7-11 and a McDonald's up the street. Korean restaurant across the street too.
I was happy that parking was free because some of the hotels in LA have to charge for parking.
They did have a pool and a nice little courtyard area. Had some patio furniture there to relax.
Hotel staff was friendly and courteous enough.

The hotel was much nicer than what I expected. The room was so big and nice. We were quite impressed. The location was very close to everything we wanted to get to and super close to Korea Town so there were such great food options near by.

It's located near K-town so if you are interested in the neighborhood, definitely a good place to stay. Front desk receptionist was very attentive and I have nothing to complain. There is iced water in the hall as well. They also offer breakfast buffet at $10/person, though I didn't try because of time restraint. The room was a bit small and bed appears to be kinda old. The towels are not very clean.
