makes you feel like you are in a college dorm or parking garage with the huge concere columns.
None the less this is a nice hotel, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great the rooms are quiet and relaxing.

A good business choice if visiting LA. Love sitting in the lobby in the morning having coffee.

Room Tip: Check in early, the lines get long

The Westin Bonaventure Hotel is conveniently located near a lot of L.A.'s big financial services buildings downtown - so I guess it doesn't make any pretense to be much more than a business person's hotel. So for a comfortable room along the lines of what you'd typically expect from a Westin, at a mid- to high price, it's fits the bill. But for me, it's just way too big, and cold. I say the later because it's massive four tower center courts, which include many restaurants (none of which seem particularly noteworthy, include the two I ate at), is a giant circular slab of concrete. The bar/restaurant in the lobby is also decent. And the staff is helpful and pleasant. So my advice: if you need a clean and comfortable room because you're in and out on business - go for it. If you're there for a more than a day or two, or looking for a vacation spot, there are better choices; something with perhaps a softer, more personable style.

A classic 80s style mega hotel right in the center of downtown LA. The rooms are all in stacks surrounding a soaring central lobby and thus all have excellent views. The rooms are well designed and the beds comfortable, though the whole set up is a bit dated. Should work take you to downtown LA this wouldn't be a bad choice as there are many deals to be had online. However, for pleasure I think there are many better options in LA that have more character or better location for seeing the sights.

I travel for work and have found that the Westin Bonaventure is convenient, efficient, and practical for the business traveler. The hotel design is iconic but still comfortable. Always positive interactions with their staff. Clean, comfortable and functional rooms.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view and the glass elevators are fast. Be sure to join their loyalty program - nice...

I stayed here for business. The hotel is large. While it can be confusing to find your way around the first few floors of the hotel where the meeting rooms are, I did like the fact that you could get to your room no matter what elevator tower you took. Take the yellow elevators to the top where you will get a good view of the Hollywood sign and the Getty. Room service food quality was good, hotel staff was attentive.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are more quiet as you would expect in any downtown area.

This is a decent place for a short stay. Its convenient to where I need to be in LA. The rooms are nothing special and the decor needs updating. The layout of the hotel can make it confusing when trying to find your way around. On the plus side there is a great steak house and vodka bar on top of the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms and common areas are very clean and well kept.

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views. Opt for a suite if you can afford it. Avoid the nightclub in the lob...

Excellent views from most rooms, room service is quick but expensive. Linens are very nice and abundant. Only difficulty is slow check in services. Having Onsite take out food us a bonus but note that mist are closed after 6pm and Sunday nights are deserted!
