LA is back (almost)! And this hotel is an example of the ongoing revitalization of downtown LA.The Biltmore is a beautiful hotel with a storied history. However, they didn't go far enough when they renovated this property. The rooms and bathrooms are so dated and not in a charming way. The beds are terrible: Small and uncomfortable with linens and pillows that must have been borrowed from a youth hostel. The windows not only don't open very far but they also don't close all the way either. The air conditioning is noisy and in need of replacement. The walls in the rooms are completely unadorned. A few of the great black and white pictures that are displayed in the lobby would have been a start. Or, even some pictures of downtown Los Angeles when it was once a vibrant location. The staff was very nice, however, the management was, at best, indifferent. They can and should do better.
