If you want a posh hotel - pay more and go somewhere else. If you plan on spending your stay in LA without leaving your hotel - stay somewhere else. If you want value for money in a convenient location to use as a base for your stay in LA then the Mayfair is great. Some awesome spots near by....

the lobby is a disaster as you walk in due to active construction, hence expect dust and noise everywhere. the bar and fitness center as a result are non-existent. having said this, the room itself is quite adequate, with a nice clean shower, comfy bed but no functional a/c or heater - so you rely on extra blankets if you...

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The location is VERY good because it's near the Metro station, a Target, Macy's and other stores.

I checked in to the hotel hopeful after looking at the website.
