The Historic Mayfair is in my opinion a good hotel, yes it is old and it may have lost some of it's class over the years. But it is a charming place never the less. The rooms are clean and the price is right. Breakfast is little expensive but then again I have had worse.
It is in the middle of downtown LA so don't expect it to be quiet at night...THIS IS LA!! :)
It's close to a lot of good night clubs and shopping is also no problem.
I have read a few reports that " It's a bad neighborhood" And that there are no places to eat if you arrive in the evening. Well Boo Hoo! this is Down town! I found the neighborhood to be quite friendly, a little run down. But I think that will change with time. It is I think a Hispanic area and as such there a number of good places to eat. Just don't expect it to be the Ritz! :)
As for reviews that the staff is unfriendly.... I think if you treat people with disrespect you get disrespect. That simple. I liked the place and I will stay there again and recommend it.
Just remember it is a Historic Hotel in a part of town that is maybe not for everyone.
Hope my review helps.More
