Inside this hotel is the history of early, grand Los Angeles. Dark wood paneling, sports trophies and magnificent oil paintings everywhere. Great breakfast and dining room. Comfortable beds with elegant brown carpet and walls. I don't think there's anything like it in LA. Now for the sad part. Outside the front doors are homeless people and the area has gone...

If you're a little tired of the standard bland Sheratons and Marriotts, the Los Angeles Athletic Club is a nice alternative. It's also a great deal for people who can take advantage of the facilities -- the pool, gym, indoor running track, workout rooms, even yoga and exercise classes are all included in the price! The pool area, though indoors,...

The Athletic Club is a block away from the Oviatt Penthouse where we were having our wedding, and we loved that we could walk over to our wedding. Teri made it really easy to set up a room block for the bridal party, and Oscar helped answer all our questions. The price was also quite reasonable for a hotel of...

Well, there are a lot of things about this hotel in L.A. Downtown. It has a multi storey parking garage (which cost 27.50 USD per day). At 3rd floor there are amenities where one can work, have breakfast, lunch, have cocktails, socialise, hear jazz (like I did two days in a row), a great wine deposit, library and that's it...

Everything about this place is old. The bathrooms are antiquated. The lobby is ancient. No bellman to help with luggage. The gym has old equipment. I stayed for the gym but was not impressed. The pool, however, is great. If you have to stay in LA then I guess it's okay but I was not impressed.

We stayed here for a short vacation and couldn't be happier. When we got there, the room was clean and ready. The bed is comfy. The free breakfast is good, loved the bread pudding! We didn't use the gym amenities but would love to come back to try the pool. I must also add that the staff was very nice...

The neighborhood has gone through an extensive change as is the hotel. While there 2 elevators were down for renovations and updates. It took some planning ahead however the updates will be great. The rooms were a bit dark and my bathroom needed some attention however the bed was really comfortable. I can appreciate the history and culture of the...

Went for one night to LA with my teenage son and wanted a hotel with a Basketball Court. I did not imagine all of the great amenities that I would be getting in addition to the court.

Spent three nights here on business. Loved the old LA ambience, the incredible gym, the newly vibrant downtown scene. The hotel is comfortable, but the guest rooms and public areas are a bit worse for wear and often seemed curiously empty. It’s a bit “Barton Fink.” The neighborhood is still in transition. If someone poured some money into this place...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
