    Perfect for an overnight trip

    Hotel is in an amazing location, walking distance to Staples Center, etc and the front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful with any questions we had. We were also given vouchers for two drinks that night and a voucher for $10 off breakfast the following morning. Excellent service. The room itself is tiny, but comfortable. We stayed on the sixth floor, and although you could see concrete and pipes, it didn't take away from the room. Room was extremely clean. Great price for the location.

    Hotel was nice. Rooms are small no fridge or microwave. Service on the rooftop was horrible. Never got certain items ordered, took forever to get assistance.

    Not worth the price

    The room was small, not even a closet space to hang clothes, and the shower is in the room space with a clouded glass privacy wall. I like to close a door with privacy when showering, not be on display. No fridge or snacks in the room. No mini bar or fridge but, a actual bar located on the roof, open to the public, not only hotel guests until midnight. If it's too crowded from outsiders, being a hotel guest means nothing to go inside.The room was clean, but too small. The lights and tv are on timers and motion sensors, very annoying to not be in control of when the lights go on and off. I kept having to turn the TV and lights back on or off constantly. I thought I was paying for the freedom of use while, I was there. Nothing relaxing about this hotel. It was quiet inside the room, that's about it. Turning lights out and having them come on when they are not wanted is a deal breaker for me. I never been a hotel where I had to constantly turn lights off because they came on because I moved in the room. I didnt like it.I didn't even know they have room service because no one told me. By the time I figured it out, it was too late for food.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The Hotel is quit nice but front entry under construction. No valet parking. Parking next door is $30 per day! No off street parking available. The location is very convenient. Near Macy’s, Starbucks, Ralph’s and lots of food venues close by. The room is clean. However do not stay on the 12th floor as there is a restaurant located above that stays open very late. The sounds from above were very disruptive as well as an extremely loud air conditioner. The shower wall is also see through to occupants in the room making it very inconvenient if in the room with multiple people. I was traveling with my daughter and friends and we were still uncomfortable with a see through frosted shower that faces into the room. Also no microwave or mini fridge available. Beds were comfortable and modernization was very nice but not practical. Staff very friendly.
