I love this place. I stay at the Westin Bonaventure (WB) every time (I am in LA 3+ times per year) I travel to Los Angeles.
Yes, there are better hotels (read: fancier) in the downtown LA core; but, there are very few places that afford the notoriety and history of the WB.
The funkiness of the promenade level of the hotel is fascinating. It feels like the hotel is caught in a time warp. Almost like a 50's era "destination hotel" where people would vacation and spend their entire trip within the edifice of the hotel. There is a Korean BBQ juxtaposed to a traditional Japanese spa. Wow - how cool.
The location is fantastic. The eclectic varieties of amenities are super funky (that is the second time I used the word "funky"). The service is good. The facilities are freshly remodeled. Taken together - all of the pieces add up to a really great hotel. Anyway you look at it - the Westin Bonaventure is in downtown LA; and the new "LA" is a really cool place with a number of really dynamic activities and events.
