This once glamorous hotel hosted presidents, movie stars, foreign dignitaries and a veritable who's who of upper crust society. Sadly, those days are long gone. This hotel is a mere shell of what it once was and is more or less a residential hotel. The neighborhood surrounding it is in a state of decay and is full of transients and dangerous street types. Definitely not the place you would want to venture into at night. However, if you happen to be in the area during the daytime, the Palm Court with the tiffany glass skylights is worth a look. But you will have to request the guard to let you inside as the restaurant is now closed. The marble lobby provides a slight glimpse of the opulence of this once grand hotel but you will definitely have to use your imagination to envision it.
For the record, I never stayed at this hotel but as a native of Los Angeles, I am providing this information as a warning to unsuspecting visitors considering a stay at this hotel.
Unique Quality: The Palm Court with the tiffany skylights is like taking a step back in time to the 1920's. Worth a look if you happen to be in the area but not worth going out of the way for. I do not mean to be a naysayer; I just feel there are many other areas of Los Angeles I would recommend and that you would enjoy.
