My son and I spent 10 nights in mid January 2013 whilst staying in downtown LA to watch Lakers games at Staples Centre. Our room was spacious and well-designed. The bathroom was rather small and plain, but sufficient. Access to a world-class gym, swimming pool, and indoor basketball court was a huge plus. However, numerous restaurants and clubs surround the...

Spent a couple nights at this hotel, as a couple, for business. There were little "issues" constantly: difficulties getting help with the luggage (car to hotel elevators), the in-house bar and restaurant closed over the weekend, half the elevators closed for repair, the water was out for one afternoon. The available staff was helpful, but it just didn't seem staffed...

This hotel is a gem right in downtown Los Angeles and we have stayed there twice and have not been disappointed. The facilities are well kept and are very clubby and from the staff to the management we have received nothing but our fullest attention. We will definitely be back at the LAAC again when in LA. Congrats to the...

I've been staying at LAAC weekly since September as I need to be in downtown LA. Notwithstanding the reasonable price for stay plus a full breakfast, the staff service, across the board--from front desk, bellmen, waitstaff in the grill, gym staff, trainers, housekeeping--is absolutely the best I have ever experienced, anywhere--friendly, efficient, courteous. And as we travel a lot and...

A flash back to the end of the 19th century private club! The L.A. Athletic Club was founded in 1880 and it plays its history throughout the hotels with many old photos, posters and memorabilia. The hotel rooms are on the last 3 floors and are modern and comfortable. The bed is ultra comfy. The room is equipped with a...

Booked one night at the hotel to attend a concert. Parking was a breeze, there is a parking garage around the corner attached to the hotel and being downtown, parking is usually hard to find. Upon entering the hotel you feel very special and know that you are at a classy hotel with the private entrance and doorman. The staff...

I stayed at the Los Angeles Athletic Club for three nights in October 2012 and highly recommend it to any traveler. I was having trouble finding a reasonably priced hotel downtown when a friend recommended LAAC where you can stay without membership. The location was perfect and within easy walking distance of the offices I was visiting. There are plenty...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
