Sowerby Bridge, United Kingdom
Reviewed 13 March 2013

Where to start? This place is quite unlike anywhere else I have ever stayed. The sheer scale of the lobby impresses (railway station concourse comes to mind) before one even looks at the (Aztec-inspired?) decorations which surround one everywhere. Reception was friendly. Room large but rather barren. Bathroom good, if old-fashioned. Everything clean, except for some dust under the bed....

Being from the United Kingdom I recognize that you need your tea.It is unlikely that we will ever have a coffee maker in our guestrooms. We do have a refrigerator in every room which is more than some of our fancier hotel friends have, Bear in mind that we are a tourist class hotel attempting to provide decent accomodations at...

I recently stayed here for seven nights on a business trip and was very impressed with what this hotel had to offer. If you are used to staying in Marriott, Hyatt, or Westin hotels this will certainly be a different experience for you. The very exotic Moroccan-style decor found not only in the lobby, bar, and pool areas but also...

This is perfect. Absolutely perfect. This is what we are. I could not have written it better myself. Based on the pictures you were in a 09 room..... 09, 20, 25, 27 and 33 are pretty much all the same..all of them except the 33 rooms have cement floors with cowhides and are quite large. Yes the hotel is old...

Go here for the Moroccan vibe... and dont expect anything like a 4 Star Hotel. The rooms could have been more modernized, included more amenities, a nice restaurant (and room service) could all be added and still kept the theme, but maybe not at the same price. It was clean and the bar, pool and little semi hidden funky places...

Thank you, All pretty much correct except the parking. We have 200 spaces and charge $12 for a registered guest. The JW across the street is $40 and the Luxe $30. When we do event parking we charge $20. Personally I think it is a great deal. Were it not for the fact that I would have to spend money...

Hotel: Lots of personality! Do not stay here if you're expecting a room like the JW Marriott. The rooms are spacious and clean and my room had a mini fridge and a hair dryer. There wasn't an ironing board in the room, but if you need one, they will provide. Because it's an old building, there isn't a lot of...

UPS never came to pick up her packages. She blamed the hotel and wanted the hotel to pay for the shipping.When we refused she became nasty. Thus this review.

I stayed at the Figueroa last year and thought it was wonderfully quirky. A small oasis where you least expect it, every inch of the Figueroa is decorated. The rooms are quite funny and comfortable. To be honest, it was surreal, but in a very fun and funny way. There are beautiful carpets and lamps all over the hotel and...

I think this is a very accurate description as to who we are. We are surrounded by the Ritz Carlton, JW Marriott and Luxe.We are the cheapest and rightly so..they are much much better..but as somebody said " We are a redhead in a sea of blondes" personally I am graying..Trip Advisor is getting to me.

I chose The Fig for the Zumba conference knowing full well this was an older establishment and completely expected the quirky charm that I found. It was extremely convenient for walking to the convention center and there is a Ralph's grocery market two blocks away so you don't have to eat only at expensive restaurants. The bed was comfortable with...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An unexpected oasis amidst an urban metropolis, Hotel Figueroa is a timeless and enduring gem in downtown Los Angeles. Located just a stone's throw from L.A. Live, Staples Center, and the Los Angeles Convention Center, this beloved downtown LA hotel is a true classic, a place that embraces the multicultural history and old-school glamour of southern California, while still remaining friendly, genuine, and completely unpretentious. Hotel Figueroa is one of the most stunning and photogenic boutique hotels in downtown Los Angeles. Built in 1925, the building retains much of its original Spanish Mediterranean architecture and is accentuated by a dramatic decor with rich colors and intricate patterns. Elegant archways with glowing lanterns lead into the hotel lobby, resplendent with its coffered ceilings and ornately painted tiles. The rooms and suites, unique in their bold and colorful style offer the perfect respite from exploring Los Angeles. The city itself is right at the doorstep to Hotel Figueroa. Our L.A. boutique hotel is a gateway to all that is downtown Los Angeles, a burgeoning center of arts, culture, dining, and nightlife. Just across the street is L.A. Live, home to Nokia Theatre, Staples Center, and the Los Angeles Convention Center. The neighborhood is also abundant with restaurants, cafes, bars, lounges, and clubs. From Michelin-starred chefs and multicultural cuisine to whiskey bars and sultry speakeasies, it's no wonder that GQ magazine calls downtown Los Angeles "America's Next Great City." So whether you're heading downtown for business, pleasure or you simply want to enjoy the Lakers game-Hotel Figueroa promises a stay that has that authentic L.A. feel and is truly unforgettable. ... more   less
