My son and I spent 10 nights in mid January 2013 whilst staying in downtown LA to watch Lakers games at Staples Centre.
Our room was spacious and well-designed. The bathroom was rather small and plain, but sufficient. Access to a world-class gym, swimming pool, and indoor basketball court was a huge plus. However, numerous restaurants and clubs surround the LAAC.. Make sure to visit the ballroom, bars etc, it is so beautiful, like an old English Mansion.
This hotel is a gem right in downtown Los Angeles. The facilities are well kept. My son said it felt like being in your own private club – has that 1930’s feel / glamour. The L.A. Athletic Club was founded in 1880 and it plays its history throughout the hotel with many old photos, posters and memorabilia.
The bed (room 1210) was very comfy. The room is equipped with a small fridge, coffeemaker, free WiFi (bonus!). Another bonus is the breakfast is included in the rate and is very good. Continental b/fast or a cooked - eggs, bacon, waffles, plus an omelette station.
We loved the hotel, some people say the area isn't particular great, especially at night, but we didn’t feel bit uncomfortable, but note there are many homeless people around... but during the day, it's fine. Oh, as someone else said - do not miss going to Bottega Louie, just a block over on 7th Street. The bakery is amazing !
Great location approx 6 blocks (20 min walk) from Staples Centre. I would really recommend anyone staying in downtown LA not to miss this delightful experience. What a great hotel with all the history of Los Angeles behind it. This hotel is a MUST.
