LA is suffering from a terrible homeless population. The sidewalks are filled with people in tents, if they are lucky to have one, or just lying on the ground. Unfortunately, they are all around this area.
This hotel is good. My husband and I drove to LA for a weekend visit with family who live nearby. If you need a place to stay in midtown, I recommend this hotel. They charge $10 per night for parking, but it is secure and well worth it. Parking is difficult to find in the area.
Staff were warm and welcoming. I completed the on-line check in and requested parking in disabled spot and a room near elevator as I use a cane when I walk. I did get the parking, paying the fee of course, but the room was almost at the end of a long corridor. I didn’t complain as I was exhausted from a long drive, and it was only for 2 nights. The view overlooked the alley, but it was quiet.
The bed in the room was exceptionally high for me, about 31 inches (my bed is at 25 inches high), and I asked for a step stool or bench. I was immediately accommodated and was handed a folding step stool that is used by cleaning staff. That worked fine.
I really appreciated the updated furnishings. Everything was impeccably clean in the room. The linens looked and smelled clean and fresh.
Finally, the best thing at this hotel is the breakfast included with your stay. They have a variety of hot and cold foods: i.e., pancake and waffle maker, eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, cereal, assorted bread and pastries, yogurt, oatmeal, fruit. All served in a very clean room, refreshed by staff on a frequent basis, and tables cleared and cleaned quickly.
There is a Walgreens a block away if you need something. Lots of restaurants, too.
