The staff in all areas were very nice and helpful. Valet was prompt. The highlight of the hotel is the pool and lounge at the pool. Room was large and nice. However, there really is not much "LA" at the hotel. There are two museums down the street, but then nada.

Stayed for 2 nights. Room is nice and staff friendly, but they placed a group of kids on my floor, and they were very noisy. Had to call on the front desk so they would stop blasting music at 2am. Wasn’t able to sleep well my second and last night. It was so noisy that I thought the staff would say something when I checked out, but nothing,… Read more

There are so many good hotel options out there, why risk it, I’d choose another one. Read less

This hotel is an odd place with a number of strengths and glaring weaknesses. Among the strengths would be a central location to a number of LA-area attractions, the rooftop pool area, daily popcorn, and a friendly staff. Negatives include the lack of an on-site fitness center, failure by the front desk to inform us about the nightly "wine hour", the wine hour only including 1 glass of wine per person (unlike other Kimpton's, which have no limitations), and an awkward one-way entrance to the valet stand. In addition, the immediate area is sketchy, including people sleeping on the sidewalk nearby, homeless campers, etc. In fairness, those issues are out of their control. The rooftop pool and restaurant is wonderful. However, on the one day we planned to hang by the pool, it was closed most of the day for a private event. The hotel was sensitive to our concerns and arranged for us to go to another Kimpton property, but it was 30 minutes away and killed the vibe of a pool day by the time we got there. Read less

Rooms are so tiny. Customer service is non existent. The hotel is dirty dirty dirty. Location is ok if you like homeless and drugged out people. The pool is soooo tiny and the sitting area is taken by locals (NOT GUEST).

Recently stayed here for 3 nights while we were in town for a charity event- hotel is small and boutique-y. Very modest lobby but rooms were very nice and great location with awesome rooftop pool. What sets this hotel apart from the rest is the staff- I have never experienced staff so committed to ensuring a great stay and willingness to help with anything.. Kristen and Carolina at the front desk were so accommodating with all requests and really went above and beyond to ensure a wonderful stay. The rooftop pool was immaculate with amazing views and also superb staff! The food was surprisingly excellent! Coming from someone who has stayed at many high end, luxury hotels, I would highly recommend this place. Read less
