I was attending the L.A. Fit Expo and needed a moderate to low price hotel as I was on a budget as well as needing a decent rest stop for the duration of my stay at the LA Convention Center. I'd say this meets that.
Upon entry after a 6.25 hrs of flight time, I got there 1:00 p.m. which was 2 hrs before normal check in time of 3 p.m. (HOPING early check-in will be an option). I was so beat and worn out, only to be told by the front desk rep that though they've verified that the reservation was booked for 2, and I provided the name of my pal who booked the room, WHO was also competing in the Powerlifting Division at the expo - I was told I cant check in unless he's there. So I was told to go and eat or sit in the lobby. Well needless to say they held my luggage in the holding area and I went and ate a "Chipotle Restaurant" nearby n got back to the hotel and ended up sleeping in the lobby till my pal arrived at about 4:45 p.m. I was a bit annoyed with the whole thing of not letting me check in but I had to come to grips that they (The HOTEL STAFF) was only doing their jobs but I thought just by the look of me with all my athletic gears and so on they could have used their judgment and just allow me to get some rest after explaining my travel time from the east coast due to my flight having a layover.
Well like I said, it was only a place for a short stay and it serves its purpose. The lobby was average. What I did like was the fact that there were 2 Indian Restaurants that was in the lobby and the staff were very friendly whether you are ordering or just inquiring about their menus, so after a long day at the Convention Center, if you don't want to venture far out, you can definitely find something on the menu in the Indian Restaurants.
