I've been travelling to downtown LA for years and have always bemoaned the lack of interesting, high-quality hotels that caters to business travellers downtown (i.e. Kimpton-type of hotel). Tried the LAAC on a recommendation for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The rooms are well-appointed, free wi-fi, and the bed was absolutely fantastic. Small niceties include a complimentary plate of fruit and cheese/crackers in your room upon arrival. I really enjoyed free access to the excellent fitness facilities this full-service gym has to offer, including more equipment one could ever dream of in a typical hotel fitness center (if you are a swimmer, the LAAC includes an indoor 5-lane, 25 yrd lap pool bathed in sunshine - fabulous!). An excellent cooked-to-order breakfast buffet is included in the cost of room. Downsides include a somewhat inattentive staff (tipping - at least for food services - is not permitted apparently) and there are some areas that are showing a bit of wear and tear. If you wouldn't enjoy a clubby, throwback ambiance, the place isn't for you. Overall, I thought it was a great value and I have booked a return trip next month.
