This hotel is excellent value and in an interesting location. I stayed in this area because of the Walt Disney Concert Hall. It is a hilly area, and there’s a bit of a climb to the Walt, but the hot weather hadn’t really set in. There is normally a funicular thingo called Angel Flight, but it seems to be closed for repairs; so take your time and climb. The whole area seemed pretty safe. A few homeless people hang around Broadway and ask for money, but they don’t seem to hassle people (you can’t give to everyone), just ask and move on if you shake your head.
The Grand Central Markets are nearby for cheap breakfasts and very reasonable coffee. I found some good places to eat and shop. Handy for buses to Santa Monica, LACMA or wherever else you want to go.
Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room is small but was fine for one person. Everything worked, and there was some storage space, though lying the bag flat to unpack required the use of the bed.
Only one soap, which I always find mean; do hotels think we are happy to move the soap from the shower to the basin and back constantly? We’re not. But Day 2 produced a new cake. Thanks, housekeeping. The kitchen is empty, so be prepared to request plates and cutlery. Don’t know if you can request a toaster; not on the list. I did request an iron and ironing board and more pillows, and they arrived promptly.
American toilet paper is the pits, and this was down there with the average. Shower fine.
The desk chair is very comfortable and deserves special mention!
