I was attending the L.A. Fit Expo and needed a moderate to low price hotel as I was on a budget as well as needing a decent rest stop for the duration of my stay at the LA Convention Center. I'd say this meets that. Upon entry after a 6.25 hrs of flight time, I got there 1:00 p.m. which...

I traveled to a business conference at the L.A. Convention Center that lasted three days. So, I needed three nights at a hotel within reasonable walking distance of the convention facility. When I booked I was grateful to find the Stillwell Hotel, charging only $75/night (compared with easily three times that amount for other nearby hotels). On arrival, I was...

The Stillwell Hotel was located in a great area. A block away from the high priced Sheriton. A ten minute walk to the Nokia Theatre, Staples Center and LA Convention Center. 5 minute walk to many restaurants, The Pantry, 7/11 and Rite Aid. Uncle John's Restaurant in the loby is great. Great walking all over downtown. We recieved what we...

I stayed at this hotel about a year ago now (they actually have been doing some updating since I stayed, too!). The hotel is very budget, but is in a very convenient location smack in the middle of downtown LA. It is about a block from a full size grocery store and is walking distance to LA Live (which is...

This hotel was our 2nd on our trip to California. We enjoyed the great location, all the room had to offer and its very clean look. There was space to put things and we both liked it very much; Using public transportation it was great to see how much local bus service and light rail was within walking distance.

Well the location is great. Right in the middle of downtown and close to all the shops. Previously we stayed at "stay on main" (for a alot less) and the stillwell has a better location. This hotel needs a facelift, asap. It's dated, old and tired. They dont even have working phones in the rooms. Because we were on a...

Not exactly the most lavish place but if you're looking for a basic, no frills place to stay near the LA Expo center, this fits the bill.

Nothing amazing, but the room were clean. The hall is a little bit sketchy, but overall is a decent hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. The hotel's rate was $90 a night when the other hotels in the area start at $225 for the same period. It was fine, very old looking but it did not smell.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
