My wife and I stayed four nights over New Year's weekend while attending the Rose Bowl with a group. Our room on the third floor faced the courtyard so street noise was not a problem It was clean and apparently recently renovated, except for the television which was a bit blurry; a flat screen would have been a welcome addition. The bathroom wass clean, although the fixtures are a bit dated.
The public areas of this hotel are what makes it a real gem. It takes you back to the 1940's with it's elegance and is a welcome change from the bland modern corporate type hotels. We found the staff to be very friendly, efficient and helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent, as was the Italian buffet in the lower level restaurant which we enoyed New Year's night. The hotel is convenient to downtown attractions such as the Staples center, museums, concert halls, etc.
We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning. If you like a historic hotel with character this is the place to go.
