We stayed there for a couple of nights over the weekend. The hotel is pretty old as others stated in the review. The good thing about the hotel is the location. It is in the city center & very close to the all important places like Hollywood & Universal city. The room is smelly. Need a renovation. Not worth for...

For the price and location, this hotel was really nice. I would stay there again although it could use a bit of renovation. The staff was friendly and it was close to a lot of places, including the metro train station and Staples Center. I always go there for Kcon LA.

We booked this hotel through our timeshare as a resort they were offering a discount at. We paid $135 per night with this hotel, and were quite disappointed. My dad and I walked into the room, already skeptical of the hotel after check in and walked right back out. We went to our car and booked another hotel. It is...

It's haunted, overpriced and has little frills. The room smelled, ax unit was so bad it creaked and did not get cool at all. The shower leaked and the tub did not drain. I don't need extravagance but functionality is expected.

The Stillwell was great!! The lady at the front desk (can't remember her name, sorry) was so friendly and very helpful! This was the only hotel available for last minute booking on NYE so we thought we would give it a try! The old charm is fantastic, very clean as well! We would totally stay here again.

It is for sure an older building. This is obvious once you walk in. The room was fair sized for my girlfriend and I. The bathroom was small. It was cheaper than other other place near by. It was in walking distance of all the places we wanted to go. It will do.

The STILLWELL is very old, but maintained so that everything works. My room was clean and roomy, but it would have been much more comfortable with a comfortable chair to sit in. The price is much better than for other lodgings near the Convention Center, where my meetings were. The individual room air conditioner was needed to avoid stuffiness, but...

The downtown LA location is great. The hotel itself? The front desk staff was welcoming and helpful, the hotel was quite at night, the water pressure was good, and the bed was firm. Nothing fancy. Can't call it quaint. It is adequate.

We recently had theater tickets and didn't want to drive 2 hours home. The price for the room was hundreds of dollars less than most of the other hotels on the same street. Granted it is old and reminded me of a dorm room,, but it was extremely clean and quiet. There was plenty of parking next door. The two...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
