My husband and I saw the poor reviews of this hotel before we booked, but we caught a good deal on our 4 night stay and it was definitely a last minute trip we planned. We were a little apprehensive about staying here, but we didn't want to spend any more on accomodations. We were in town for the BCS National Championship and had other things we wanted to spend our money on, like tickets to the game and food. The Mayfair suited us just fine. Yes, the Mayfair is outdated. Yes, it's in need of some new couches in the lobby and carpet in the rooms. But, the various bellmen were always polite and the cleaning staff were very nice. None of our personal items were touched while we were gone and we were given clean towels everyday. My biggest complaints would have to be the AC making a horrible noise (but it was so cool at night that we cracked a window and left it off) and the water pressure being less than what I'm used to, but still not worse than in any other hotel. In my opinion, it is very conveniently located. We are in our 20's and fairly active, so walking isn't an issue for us. It is a little more than half a mile from the 7th/Flower St Metro stop, which is just a few short stops from Union Station where you can connect with any Metro line and various other forms of public transportation to get almost anywhere in the city. We rode the Metro to the Staples Center one night and walked back after the game, and I don't think it was terribly far.The area around the hotel varies from other hotels to major companies to sub-par living quarters, so I can understand why some reviewers may think the surroundings are unsafe if it is not what they are used to. And yes, there were people on some corners asking for money, but honestly, you're in a big city. Everywhere we went in LA there were people asking for money, no matter how nice the area was. I give the Mayfair 3 stars overall.
