This hotel in cahoots with some marketing company convinced us to use them saying free free free discount discount.. until you are here then suddenly hidden fee this taxes that. My "discount getaway" has now cost me more then if I had booked everything privately. Room had one towel desk clerk says new towels are an extra fee.. Oh free wifi cool oh wait it doesn't work outside the lobby. Water damage to room walls and ceiling which I'm sure I'll get charged for damaging because it's okay to rip off young tourists. The sheets and towels in the room were dirty covered in tar and mystery body fluids. My card was over charged for the stay and not one desk clerk could say or do anything just shrug at me.. plumbing from room next to ours caused a terrible smell that took hours for anyone to clean up. It's a non smoking hotel yet it constantly wreaked of burning cigarettes and marijuana on our floor. Staff once again just shrugs and says it always does. The only nice thing was the full size bath tub. 1/10. Won't ever stay here again. Read less

My friend and I had driven to LA from TX on a last minute whim and booked a stay there this past Sunday. The best part of our stay was talking to Matt who was working the desk. We spent majority of our night hanging out with him! Even got an authentic gumbo recipe out of it(:

I loved staying at this hotel. We had friends who came to visit our room and would like to say there next time. It is centrally located to everything. It doesn't have a bar, but since it is so near great restaurants and bars that was no problem.

We were given a lovely room with the courtyard off of it. The room itself worked wonderfully for our stay- however there were a few details that could’ve made it even better. To start, there’s no comforter on the bed- I was freezing the first night and had to put the heat on. There was also only two towels for two of us, and no hairdryer. The bed was comfortable the pillows were great and the room was quiet. Nice shower too. There is a strong smell of weed on the first floor and also the third floor. The two gentlemen working the front were very nice, however, the coffee station was empty of sugar and cream and everyone left their trash there. The front entry door is clear glass and it wasn’t cleaned all weekend- it could’ve really used a wipe down especially with Covid. While these things are minor, it would given them a five star review on my end if a few of the details were better! Read less
