We stayed here for an event at the El Rey Theatre, and wanted to be able to walk to the venue. The location was close enough that we decided that we could walk to and from the venue. The last two blocks of Wishire after LACMA are a wee bit on the sketchy side, but it didn't seem to be dangerously so. There's a Ralphs grocery store only four blocks away for groceries. And there are a number of restaurants on Wilshire in that same area.
There's only street parking, which is a slight downside. We were fortunate to get parking right in front of the hotel. And we had a room that fronted on Orange, so there was plenty of light. I'm not sure what it's like for rooms more in the interior of the hotel. And while the walls did indeed seem fairly thin, sound from other rooms only seemed to be of issue when close to the adjoining walls. That was only an issue in the bathroom for our room.
When we attend another event at the El Rey again we'll probably stay here again.
