The room was nice and bed was comfortable. The parking is such a rip off. For $42 I almost wanted to go and sleep in my car.
Staff is friendly and effecient.
Clean, modern, friendly staff (at least the ones I had contact with). Convenient location for LA Live events obviously, which was our reason for staying here. A bit overpriced if you ask me. The parking is absolutely ridiculous!!! $42 a night! I've paid less for rooms! For the price you pay to stay here parking should be free or at best a minimum fee for guests since there are no alternative parking areas. Room service, way overpriced as usual but the added fees and taxes are ridiculous and the food is just ok.
Valet parking staff was rude
The staff was very friendly and accommodating to my needs. It is a very nice hotel, and we had a lovely stay. Met all of our needs The staff at the pool were a bit rude and not attentive. Took about 45 minutes to get our drink and food after we ordered it, and no apologies were given.
While the staff was outstanding, the peace and quite was priceless, especially with the chaos of LA Live! The mattress was a little firm for my liking, but the bedding was exceptional!
Everything is GREAT! Except parking expenses in the area. Try not to drive if possible. Brian
I love everything about this hotel ,great staff great view beautiful hotel
The location was convenient to the end purpose of our stay. The staff were poorly trained. We didn't deal with one person who seemed to even act like they cared we were. We travel a lot, and the way the staff behaved put them in the bottom 25% for customer service skills.
Staff at check excellent. Location next to Staples Center. One block from the 'Pantry' historic diner. Ordered lamb meatballs at the bar and they were barely warm. TV in room has mostly grainy low definition channels. Scanning room key in elevator to access floor worked after the third attempt. I won't stay here again. Expected more from this brand.
The reception staff were friendly, and the room looked nice. The room service is the worst I have ever experienced ! They come and don't change the sheets and never clean garbage and tissues if any is on the floor they leave it ! And once they left the cleaning stuff in our bathroom. I hated the room service so bad! And the complimentary water one day they put the other they don't ! It's just bad service
Very clean, staff was incredibly nice, free water bottles
Room was spacious and clean with a great view overlooking Nokia Live. It was ready when promised and the staff was very accommodating.
Friendly staff and spacious rooms. Asked for early check-in and they were able to accommodate the request. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the downtown LA area. AC was noisy
Staff was very friendly and helpful. I felt well taken care of. Hotel is conveniently located to Nokia Theatre/LA Live and a ton of great restaurants! Rooms were clean, comfortable, and nicely detailed. AC is a little noisy.
location, nice room, very comfortable parking was very expensive.
Great location, great amenities, friendly staff. Its a bit pricey, but if you have the money, i highly suggest booking the hotel
From the first day we came, the staff was very friendly and helpful with all our needs. Our dogs were given a warm welcome and the front desk accommodated us with recommendations on where to shop and walk our animals. We will always come back here in the luxury hotel for its staff and location. We liked our views, location,staff and walk friendly property.
My husband and I stayed at Lux after the concert at Staple Center. The hotel is right across the street from Staple Center. There are lots of restaurants close by too. The front desk could not find our reservation but I was lucky to have print out with me. Then, we had to wait until after 3.45 pm. to check-in. I wonder if the hotel don't have enough housekeepers .
Staff - very friendly. Rooms clean. Having to pay $88.00 parking for 2 days. The light feature about having to put activate with my room key.
Misinformed about parking. Was told it was free upon check-in and ended up getting a bill for $44 upon check-out. Manager said there was nothing they could do.
One day parking for $44 is just insanely expensive as you can get all day parking for $10 with 5 mins walk.
great location for Staples Center or Nokia Live. Shopping nearby too. We had an awesome room with a great view! The staff was so friendly! The breakfast buffet was good. The breakfast room had many couch areas as well as tables and chairs. No
Breakfast lounge was excellent. We were able to check in very early by taking handicapped room. Wifi was good. Room layout was nice and residential aspect was nice. Didn't have to prepay. Microwave didn't work and they didn't have a replacement. Coffee wasn't replenished.
Kitchenette, confortable bed and walking distance to Staples Center. Parking was expensive
Location is good. Rooms are big Not worth the money. No choice for breakfast, they are offering plastic plates and forks for the breakfast
The rooms were nice and clean, no noise from the other rooms. service was amazing. Security and hotel transportation was amazing. Best memories will always stay of the first impression that I received when visiting Los Angeles. I give it a five star
Access to downtown area Parking cost
The location was centrally convenient The parking was horrible!
The hotel was very cute and has a lot of really cool features, chandeliers, lobby, bars, pools etc. all very cool. Room keys are actual keys and in a way that is very cute and old fashioned, it didn't seem as safe, especially with just a chain lock on the inside of the room door, and no deadbolt. The room was cute, beds were comfortable, bedding was clean. Could hear people on the street and cars clearly. So could use some sound proofing. If you went to the hotel for a event or party and didn't stay overnight I think you would be better off. Their is no coffee maker in the room and that little luxury would have been really nice since we were never able to use the breakfast during the time they provided. Their was no book talking about nearby restaurants and features of the hotel in the room by the phone, so that was odd. The parking lot was tiny and the spaces were extremely close and we were in a small sports car, so had to pay to park next door $30 one night and $24 the second. The bathroom in the room was tiny and very outdated, the shower curtain had a hole in it and was yellowed from wear. The main thing that I thought was gross was their was several black foreign hairs on the ceiling of the bathroom. I didn't want to call and make a complaint, and I saw the maid was a few doors down before we left so I left her a note with a tip on the bed that said "The room looks great, but their is a few foreign hairs on the ceiling of the bathroom, could you please take care of that? Thank you..." When we returned the note and tip were gone but the hairs on the ceiling remained. I thought it was rude to take a tip and not clean up the hairs on the ceiling. The bathroom was tiny. It wouldn't take long to see them if you looked up. That was my biggest turn off, but maybe the maid couldn't read english?
The bed was incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was small, felt old, and was dingy. There was a roll of toilet paper by the sink like it was meant to be a hand towel. The floors are concrete and feel unkempt because of their coldness. The decor is also themed but feels cold and dingy, the rugs on the walls were half hung. The worst was the A/C in the window and being hot all night. We ended up running to the ACE to salvage our vacation.
Good staff, lovely old building, great access to convention center For $256/night, my room badly needed an update. There were only 2 power outlets - One shared between the TV and the AC and the other was inaccessible behind the bed. This just doesn't cut it in today's day and age, esp for a hotel that at least partially caters to the convention crowd. In addition, the bathroom was tiny and the shower was so narrow that I had to bathe sideways (2.5 feet, I measured.) Plus, there was nowhere in the shower to put items aside from the floor, no soap tray, nothing. I won't be staying here again. I knew it wasn't going to be the Ritz, but this was a tad too far into the 60s for me.
Hotel was beautiful and incredibly clean. The bed was great and the bathroom was clean but a little outdated. The staff was amazing, especially Andrew who checked us in. The most amazing part though was the pool and the location! The only parking was valet and the pool closed early on weekdays. Bathroom could definitely stand to be updated but was incredibly clean.
Nothing, no parking, room smelled like smoke, it was so bad we left and get them to give me my money back. Nothing I did not like anything about it. Room was terrable.
I enjoyed the exotic feel of the bar with the Indian decor. The pool area is gorgeous. Had I been able to arrive before 10pm I eould have enjoyed a dip. The water pressure in the shower was phenomenal. The hotel overall had old world charm and a nice bistro style dining area. The room smelled like mildew and dust. The bed was horribly pitted from years of bodies on each side. The sheets and pillows smelled like they were stuffed damp into a closet for the day then dried and put on the bed. The carpet was red at one point. Its brown and very dingy now. I wouldn't walk around without socks.
quiet, very different from all hotels in the neighbourhood good price some rooms are a bit convoluted in shape
Great atmosphere from the moment you walk inside. Tall ceilings with exotic decor. Lots of character. Tall, beautiful cactus trees outside by a pool that opens at 7am and has a DJ at night. Room is decent -- old-school but memorable. Moroccan style design with lots of mystical colors. No coffee maker or any of that, but they get a pass for being interesting. I paid 250USD a night but that's a bit much. For 150-180USD this would be a good deal. Good location, though there are some sketchy characters / homeless hanging around at night (definitely did not feel dangerous though). Staff was great. Polite and helpful. Subway is just a few blocks away. Overall a good base if you're staying in DTLA, IF you can get the room for around 150USD. The bad. They don't use keycards for the elevator or door. As mentioned, there are some sketchy characters outside, and there's lots of people coming inside for the pool parties at night. Anyone could just take the elevator upstairs and potentially kick a door down. Locks seemed kinda weak. No safe in the room, but they have 'em downstairs. Late checkout was 12.30pm and that's pretty BS. Stayed on the 8th floor so sound wasn't a problem, but if you're a light sleeper, don't stay on the lower floors. If you're looking for a sterile place to stay with grandma and the kids, this is not it -- better go with a chain like Hilton or Ritz. But if grandma used to be a hippie and you're fairly open, it's great.
