Tired hotel but some pluses

Cons--Front desk extremely unhelpful, charge for early check in, some broken wall tiles and loose wallpaper in room, bathroom fan tied to light and noisy. Air conditioning struggles on hot days. Poor wireless speed and dropped connection. Immediate area run down but I felt safe. Pros--Sauna room on every floor (but I did not partake), they do have a small exercise room, very good complimentary full breakfast with omelettes, eggs and waffles made to order. Hugo the chef was great.Pretty courtyard with a 5-7 get together and most nights in bar they have a comedian, rooms large. This is a hotel which leaves you with mixed feelings.

Girls trip to cali

1st thing.. It costs $27 a night to park in the hotel parking lot! Not a garage.. The parking lot. Ok, so three country girls traveling through Cali for six days. This was hotel number two. Finding it was ok, location was OK. It's on a pretty busy street but not busy like downtown. It's an hour walk from the walk of fame. Oh, and the hotel rooms have tile floors so bring your slippers( that was a first for us). Breakfast was..so so. We were there for two nights and had very little interaction with staff other than at check in. This may be the only hotel in the country that enforces the paying for an extra person in the room...(disclose at your own risk...)

Small but very cozy

The staff was great. The room was very clean. The location wasn't the greatest but because we were in the courtyard view room, it almost didn't matter. The breakfast was great!

Convenient and very comfortable yet practical stay

My wife and I came here with the main purpose of visiting our uncle who recently had a stroke so we just looked for a place that would not break the bank. We chose this hotel because the location is not too far from the hospital and some places/attractions we wanted to see during our visit to California. This was our first time in LA we basically used public transportation which is similar to Chicago but cleaner and better. This hotel exceeded our expectations! I could still feel the grandeur of this hotel back in the day before the 5-stars were even born. I rated this place with 4 stars for amenities because it's not a 5-star hotel. Overall, it's excellent. Thanks to the front desk staff and the crew. The complimentary breakfast was awesome! Thank you Hugo, Elvira, Sonia and other chefs for feeding us! I could have added more superlatives but I'm running out of time.
