  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great hotel, perfectly located right downtown. Has an amazing rooftop pool/bar area with excellent views. If you're there for any sporting events, the Staples Center is only a 10-15 minute walk away. Otherwise, the Metro station is less than a 10 minute walk away, which connects you to pretty much anywhere you'd want to go. Would definitely stay here again.

    Hidden fees

    There is a hidden cost they add on at the end. Apparently it’s for pool maintenance and because it’s a historic building. Even though it’s not considerable, it left a bad impression on us. Aside from that, the place is nice. Good location, and great rooftop bar. Just wished they would be more transparent with their clients.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible place to stay so dark inside the rooms even the hallways, bed sheets and covers were dirty, no seating area in rooms no coffee machines or phone not even a hair dryer! Worst nightmare ever. Only spent one out of four nights there, So glad Expedia was able to cancel the remaining 3 nights and find us a beautiful hotel for the rest of our stay in LA
