Neighbourhood: 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Part of the fun of walking around this city is stumbling onto gems, building from the past with stories to tell.

It is a worthy example of a French Art Deco highrise. You can steal your way into the building and walk around

Over-the-top art deco interior design and architecture. We were knocked out when we had dinner here. This is one of LA's gems and it's amazing it has survived all of the changes downtown.

The Oviatt's interior is stunning. It's a spectacular location for a wedding. The two rooftop terraces are wonderful. The bride/ groom room is gorgeous. I really can't say enough about the Oviatt. The setting, the food, and the service were all great.

I was honoured to be the officiate at my friends wedding in July this year. What I didn't know was how amazing the venue was going to be!

We had the entire top floor, including the roof terrace, to our wedding party and it is simply one of the best spaces I have ever been.

The decor is totally in keeping with the time period of the building - and the penthouse suite which the bride had access to was amazing!

If you're planning a wedding in LA, I would seriously consider this amazing location! You cant fail to be impressed.

We had our daughters wedding on Sunday night. Nicole and Rob were extremely helpful and attentive, but not intrusive at all. From the bar staff to the servers everybody did their best to make the night memorable...And it was!!.

We went here for a wedding this past weekend - There is a penthouse at the very top (obviously) that has some amazing features! THey have a restored art deco bedroom suite for guests to checkout just as you come in off of the elevator into the foyer. Walk down a narrow hallway to a bar area which was cute and quaint with what looked like original windows. The bar then leads out onto the rooftop terrace which has beautiful views of the city and surrounding buildings (US Bank, BofA, etc...) Be aware though - for those of you attending a wedding here, the bathroom are quite a trek! The men's is one flight down whereas the women's is 2 flights down.

One of the most beautiful historic buildings in Los Angeles. It was saved in the 70s; it has Lalique glass and amazing Deco detailing. Try to go on a tour with the L.A. Conservancy. Downtown LA has a some lovely old buildings, including movie theaters, nearby.
