I stayed at this hotel about a year ago now (they actually have been doing some updating since I stayed, too!). The hotel is very budget, but is in a very convenient location smack in the middle of downtown LA. It is about a block from a full size grocery store and is walking distance to LA Live (which is...

This hotel was our 2nd on our trip to California. We enjoyed the great location, all the room had to offer and its very clean look. There was space to put things and we both liked it very much; Using public transportation it was great to see how much local bus service and light rail was within walking distance.

This hotel needs a facelift, asap. It's dated, old and tired. They dont even have working phones in the rooms. Because we were on a...

Not exactly the most lavish place but if you're looking for a basic, no frills place to stay near the LA Expo center, this fits the bill.

Nothing amazing, but the room were clean. The hall is a little bit sketchy, but overall is a decent hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. The hotel's rate was $90 a night when the other hotels in the area start at $225 for the same period. It was fine, very old looking but it did not smell.

This hotel's rate was $67 a night when the other hotels in the area start at $125! It was fine, very old but it did not smell. Bed was REALLY comfortable, looked at it and the mattress looked new-er.

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.
