We stayed here for a wedding. It was a 10 minute walk to the venue. Right in the heart of downtown. Walking distance to clubs, restaurants and farmer's markets. The charm and beauty of the hotel are timeless. While the rooms are small, they served...More

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
