"The hotel was close to Children's Hospital. The room was small, but nice and modern, and the lobby was also nice. The power went out for about 2 hours, and many of the employees were rude and unwelcoming. Valet parking cost $50 per night, and there was also a resort fee. Nearby restaurants were pricey.2021-12-18"

"Close to everything downtown. Nice, traditional hotel with great service. We were upgraded to a suite. Parking was a little tricky; clarify with the hotel exactly where to turn to get to the parking structure. I'd definitely stay here again.2016-05-17"
"I was disappointed when I entered the building; the hotel didn't look like online photos, and it wasn't especially clean. The elevators didn't look good at all. But then the room and amenities changed my opinion to surprisingly positive. This is an experience you should have if you're staying in downtown L.A.2015-05-21"
"We were disappointed with this hotel. We were told it was a non-smoking hotel, but our room smelled like cigarettes and had an ashtray full of matches. We called to see about switching rooms or getting deodorizer, but the front desk clerk wasn't helpful. When we returned from a day out, the room smelled even worse. This time the hotel clerk was apologetic and gave us a discount since no other rooms were available.2016-01-19"
"The hotel clerk upgraded me to a beautiful suite, but there was no information in the room about where amenities were located. The pool was disappointing and difficult to get to, and navigating the lobby and mezzanine levels wasn't easy. If you're driving, enter on the 5th Street garage entrance.2017-05-23"

"A quality hotel near the USC medical campus, and next door to Little Tokyo. with accommodating personnel. It was clean and safe. From the front desk clerks to the security staff, everyone was accommodating. I accidentally left my house and car keys in the room after checkout, and the hotel returned them to me.

"The hotel and room were clean, but the WiFi was terrible. Plenty of hot water for showers. The staff was polite and friendly, and answered all my questions right away. Bring earplugs to block out highway noise. There were only 2 decent restaurants in the immediate area.2018-07-29"
"Convenient to USC. The hotel wasn't high-end, but it got the job done. The room was clean, but we heard some traffic noise since it faced the highway. The sink didn't drain well, and the shower had poor water pressure. Pleasant front desk service.2018-01-27"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
