This hotel is totally haunted! Multiple suicides and murders, bodies found in the water tanks on the roof, was also home to two serial killers in 1985 and 1991. Great prices and location, and you can't beat the crazy history of this place.

Location couldn't be better! In the heart of downtown. Several clubs, restaurants, and shops in walking distance. Shanty alley is just down the road, for hours of great bargain shopping. The hotel itself has a grand looking entrants with gold doors and trim when you emidiatly walk in there's frosted glass on either side. Once upstairs the room was cozy and had a decent view. Bed was comfy shower was hot.

This place is great if your on a budget. They almost always have last min. rooms. I always jump on my phone to do bookings. Their computer system is slow to retrieve reservations. The staff isnt the friendlyest but they are on top of checkin and guest safety.

STAY is a quirky little Hotel/Hostel spot. Rumor has it that you can stay here for as little as around $22/night, but private rooms start at about $65. The location might not be ideal, but it's pretty close to the bus lines that can wisp you away to Santa Monica or Beverly Hills with ease. With the money you save, plan to eat out, the included breakfast is just cereal and milk.

The Cecil Hotel definitely has a lot of character when you first walk in giving you the feeling of going back in time to old-school LA. However, this is one of those cases where old-school needs some updating. Their gym was under construction when I visited. The breakfast nook upstairs was okay, but could also use a facelift.

The Cecil Hotel is an impressive, 15-story building in the Historic Core area of downtown Los Angeles. Walking through the grand lobby is like being transported to another era. And the location is about as perfectly central as you can get for exploring all the great bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. There are 600 rooms here – some have private bathrooms and others have shared baths. The price tag is pretty attractive, though the rooms themselves could use an update. They are clean, but a bit worn out. Be sure to take advantage of the free continental breakfast each morning. Also, note that there’s no parking on site (but plenty of nearby lots) and WiFi is only available in the lobby (it’s free!) – not the rooms.

Nice accomodation for a fair price, but shared bathroom is not always a pleasure...

This is a sort of hotel/hostel hybrid, with both private rooms and dorm rooms available. This gives it a more unique atmosphere than either a hostel or a hotel since the group of guests is a bit more mixed.

I found the room's to be fairly comfortable and well designed. It's kind of cool that it's in this historic sort of building. My main complaints would be that there isn't any air conditioning and the bathroom's are decent but not great.

The hotel itself is right on Main street Downtown so there is there is easy access to trains and buses for those not driving. There are also plenty of options for eating, drinking and shopping nearby, along with a number of galleries.

For those who have not been Downtown before, here's the deal: Downtown was dead for a long time but has been going through a revitalization recently, so there is still quite a bit of grit. There are cool,trendy shops and cafes, but also a number of homeless people.

The shiny lobby, bathed in white with orange accents and bright starburst light fixtures, is a hip and cool spot downtown for 20-somethings. Fabulous floral wall treatments and furry touches greet you after passing the café style sidewalk seating. Climb a flight to the elevator to reach the hotel/hostel’s floors with cute rooms (twins or a queen), outfitted with a computer desk and chair, bed with storage drawers (in lieu of a closet) and orange plastic knock offs of Pedro Friedeberg’s famous hand chairs. There’s a kitchen to make meals, lockers, public areas and computer desks in the mezzanine floating above the lobby. The front desk is helpful with great directions and tips. The surrounding area is a bit iffy but is gentrifying with shops opening, restaurants, art galleries, and the monthly art walk. Attractions The center of downtown and its attractions is just a few blocks away as well as the Metro. Be careful with parking, the indoor lot just a couple doors north on Main offers the better deal than the one next door or across the street and is open 24/7. There are iPod docks available on request.

This is the kind of hotel I would recommend to any of my hipster nieces and nephews. The lobby is great, full of sunshine and decorated in a classical/ modern twist featuring white leather sofas and orange detail. Just outside the lobby there are tables and chairs in case you want to have some coffee and enjoy the sunshine and watch the passersby.

It's a small boutique hotel and hostel that has rooms with bunk beds that have shared bathrooms or private rooms with own bath. Eighter way I just loved the way the rooms are bright and cheerful. All rooms have flat screen T.V.'s and ipod dock stations.

There is free wifi in the lobby and lounge area, the lounge area also has a huge flatscreen and a foosball table. They also have Xbox games available for those that want to play.

They serve a free continental style breakfast and there is a great little coffee house next door with a good menu of sandwiches and salads as well as yummy pastries. They also have a 24 hr. self serve Laundromat for the busy traveler.

The location is great, with easy access to the metro station. All around it are bars, night clubs, and terrific restaurants. This hotel isn't for everyone, but it is for the cool, hip, under 30 crowd. Looks like a blast.
