My Hilton # begins with 01, so you know I'm the one of the oldest clients. I reserved a king bed for a Saturday an Sunday when the hotel is almost empty. Give a good client a great room. NO! Gave us a small room facing machinery. Very poor management as far as I'm concerned. Also the items requested to...

Stayed one night & had a very nice experience. Feels more like a boutique hotel. Rooms are quiet with large closets and great bath toiletries. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly from the valet, doormen, bar staff and front desk!

I was there a three nights and they charged me over $400 with taxes. The fourth night they said they were not sure at first and finally they gave me the room. When I checked out I found out they charged me $499 -- $535 with taxes. Not so great for a tiny room with old plumbing.

Friendly and courteous staff. Rooms are comfortable but could have been better with fridge and complimentary breakfast. Adding USB charger inside the guests room would be wonderful. Quiet neighborhood!

I stayed there for just one night but the hotel left a positive impression. The hotel is in great condition and looks well. The rooms are nice although mine was a little small, in particular the bathroom. Breakfast was great and service was fantastic. Check our the bar, a nice place to chill and plan out your day.

Hotel is walking distance from Staples. Convenient, clean, great beds. A short Uber ride to just about anywhere in the city. Had drinks in a quaint bar downstairs before the Lakers game. Friendly staff helped with recommendations on places to go after the game

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.
