A General Disappointment, Just Okay Posted May 8, 2015 on Hotels
Stayed here for 1 night due to work being done in my nearby apartment. Tale of caution: There is a bar that butts up against the back of the Hotel in the alley and it is LOUD. They just let people congregate out there. I was woken up at 12:30 by a boisterous group who didn't leave the alley for a few more hours. Granted, it was Cinco De Mayo, but I imagine it's usually like that. The bathroom is small, and the shampoo/conditioner is not single serve. It's big bottles that are refilled and attached to the wall. Glad I brought my own--I'd rather not risk it in case a maintenance worker thinks it's funny to leave a surprise in there for the next guest (wouldn't put it past people in LA). The bed was comfortable, and while the mattress itself was fairly dirty, the sheets were clean. I checked for bedbugs and no signs, so that was a plus. All in all, it was okay for 1 night, but I definitely would not stay here again. I expected the hotel to be a lot nicer considering the cost, location and recent construction they did. I did not visit the bar in the lobby (which was creepily empty for a drinking holiday), nor did I stop by the wine bar or free breakfast, so I cannot speak to those.
