“Nice stay”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

The hotel is nice and clean, located in a quite area, very close to a metro station, which is really convenient. Our room was pretty, not so big, but comfortable. We generally don't have any complaints, the breakfast was good, many different options, plus a cook every morning makes omelettes according to everyone's likings. The staff was overall friendly, except for one lady on the frontdesk, who had a pretty rude attitude (I wish I could remember her name).
I would definitly recommend this hotel to a friend.
Other useful tips for your visit in L.A.: We bought the Los Angeles go card and turned out to be a very smart move, cause we really saved over 50% on entrance tickets. MUST SEE places: Universal & Warner studios, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills. Not so worth the fuss: Hollywood celebrity homes tour.

I went in this hotel twice, last summer and in January. I liked it a lot. For those who don't have a car, there is a metro subway five minutes walking from the hotel. It brings you to the Universal Studios, Hollywood Blvd, etc. The breakfast is so tasty, there is a great choice of food. I just couldn't understand people complaining about it. (They must be too fussy!). I'll definitely go there again and again every time I'm back to Los Angeles!

Not in the best area of LA - although some of the reviews make it sound like downtown Beirut - but this is a perfectly acceptable hotel with a convenient location for carless pariahs in Los Angeles. A five-minute stroll to the Metro, and at no time day or night did we feel uncomfortable doing this, and a bus to Santa Monica available on the corner.

Room Tip: Spend a few extra dollars for the room with a jacuzzi as this is really a mini-suite with kitchenett...

Green Features: Air conditioning was turned off as it was "winter", although still pretty warm to those not used to it.

I was in LA for four nights to take in a couple ball games and sights of the area. The hotel is very convenient to the Metro Red Line of the LA mass transit system which provides connection to other Metro lines and Union Station. The closest station is Vermont & Santa Monica, approximately 2 blocks south of the hotel.

Breakfast was way better than anticipated, with more or less a full breakfast every morning.

The room is a decent size for a single traveler or couple. Be sure to request a room not on Vermont as it is quite loud and sirens pass by as it is a major street. Bed was comfortable and everything worked as expected with regards to TV and internet.

The staff was courtesy and business like. I am mostly self-sufficient, so I did not make any local inquiries.

I was traveling without an automobile, so I was a frequent traveler on the Metro. It was easy to ride and went to many of the places I needed to go. A ride is $1.50 and the people in the Metro stations generally helpful and decent. There is a good amount of homelessness around some of the Metro stations, I did not experience any aggressive panhandling except in Union Station.

The neighborhood is a little sketchy, with several Thai massage palors. While I had little concern about safety, I didn't linger after sunset. I did walk up to the Los Feliz area, which is a good walk and there are some interesting dining options and shops.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the Vermont Avenue side of the hotel. Try to get a courtyard room as I would guess i...

Stayed for a week and loved it. Complimentary breakfasts were amazing with eggs cooked in front of you to your specs. Secure parking, 24 hour security. Great little Liquor shop across the road and close to metro. Be sure to check out the amateur stand up comedy guys n girls in the lower level on a Thursday night they are a crack up ( not so much the power hungry tool behind the bar ). Loved it and will stay there again !

We stayed here for 4 nights to explore LA, being based near the subway was a benefit however we never used it. Local area is not fantastic unless you step out of the hotel and walk right for about 15-20 minutes. Good places to eat down the road.
Rooms were very comfortable, I would suggest asking for a courtyard room as it would be quieter. The courtyard is an excellent little space that needs a bar in it to perfect the area
Pool area is excellent and well kept.
Breakfast is ok but could be greatly improved, don't expect a large choice or fresh orange juice.
Customer Service is excellent! Devon particularly was extremely helpful in recommending restaurants, local area, helping with our bags, booking trips and generally chatty about things to do and see. He should be commended on his customer service
Apart from its location, this is a great hotel and I would stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for courtyard room
