We needed a hotel while exhibiting at an event at the Los Angeles Convention Center. We stayed the previous year at the JW Marriott, and decided to try the Luxe this year, because it was a bit closer and cheaper. The hotel is beautifully decorated, but the rooms are much smaller than the Marriott. There is very little storage space or table top space. Much of the available space is taken up by the mini bar and extensive snack collection. While some of the staff was terrific, we found others to be very lacking in providing accurate information, especially the desk staff. It is across the street from LA Live, so that the location is not quite as attractive or as convenient as the Marriott. They did provide very nice Lather toiletries, very thick towels and robes, and the kind of amenities one sees in a Japanese hotel (slippers, toothbrush kit, shaving kit, sewing kit, ladies' set). In most ways, it has the feel of a luxury hotel, but if you are there for a long stay and need the extra storage space, you may be frustrated. We asked for a quiet room on the side of the hotel away from Figueroa and the Staples Center, based on other reviews. There was no traffic noise, but the view was pretty dismal. We were there for several nights, and on Thursday, Friday and Saturday there was very loud music and party noise until 2am. We assumed it was coming from something outside at LA Live. On the third night, we realized it was coming from the hotel's terrace bar. On balance, this was a hotel that worked very hard to be an excellent property, but came up just a bit short.
