Westin Bonaventure is said to be the largest hotel in downtown LA with 1,368 rooms and 155 suites in its 35 floor structure. This landmark building has 5 towers. Its 6-level atrium lobby is adorned with splashing fountains and scenic elevators.
If the elevator seemed familiar to you, it was because one of the scenes of True Lies of Arnold Schwarzenneger was shot there.
Large conventions are usually held here so expect large crowds.
Unique Quality: The room has nice views of the city and provides coffee/tea and toiletries. There's also a Pool and fitness center.
The sixth floor of the hotel is connected to a pedestrian walkway that will lead you to YMCA and the top of Bunker Hill Steps.
5th and 6th floors have independent restaurants that are budget friendly. Hey, they've got Subway there too.
3 blocks away is the 7th/Metro Light Rail which can take you to Universal Studios and Hollywood, etc. A block away is a bus stop for Sta. Monica Beach and Beverly Hills.
Concierge is friendly and can point you to top tourist spots.
For me accommodation is a big factor to tourist cause it's almost the half of satisfaction that you will get in your vacation. first choose a hotel that can fix your requirement to a particular destination or they have contacts to the airline. or they have access to other network. like Westin Bonaventure Hotel they have access in many company i will suggest is cause its very affordable compare to other hotel and the place is near to all because its located at the center of L.A thats why you will enjoy your trip and hassle free.
if you want other hotel here are the list.

Unique Quality: It is a spacious, self-contained mini-city of guest rooms, boutiques, dance clubs, bars, restaurants and meeting rooms. One of 20 restaurants, the L.A. Prime Restaurant offers a 360-degree view of the city from the 35th floor. A floor below, the Bonavista Bar (one of seven lounges onsite) revolves around the dramatic evening vistas of the city. An indoor lake is one hint at what an extensive and classy property this is. It offers a post office, medical services and an Executive all-suites tower. In-room speaker phones, microwaves, refrigerators and coffee makers are available.
Directions: at the center of Figueroa st
5 star. Very clean facility.
Unique Quality: The rotating cocktail lounge on the 21st floor is a great view of the city.
The atrium has a gym with running track integrated.
It is close to the metro from which you can access Pasadena, Hollywood and Long Beach.
There are lots of things to do in Downtown LA.
Nice clean pools.
Directions: Go to down town LA and you cant miss it.
26th floor view and an allnight lovemaking next door.
The Bonaventure of "True Lies" fame is past its prime. The elevators still zip up the sides of the round towers and the glass cieling on the lobby floor is basically intact (although there were a few visible patches). The hotel is located downtown not too far from Bunker Hill where the new Disney symphony hall, the Chandler Pavillion, Ahmanson Theater, Mark Taper Forum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, all congregate.
The rooms are pie shaped to go with the circular towers, small doorways fan out to rooms with floor to cieling views. Large comfortable bed. Very limited cable tv, white cotton bathrobes, minibar, etc etc. But the drawback is if your room has a connecting door. Mine did. So from 2:30 to 5:30 on a Thursday night I could hear everything--and I mean everything!--going on next door. Since I had an 8:30 am appointment in the morning, I was not very happy.
The next day, I mentioned to the front desk my experience of the night before. I asked the front desk whether my noisey neighbors were checked in for the coming night. She said, "No."
She said that she understood my situation and told me that there had been other complaints about similar situations and that it was too expensive for the hotel to do anything about it.
I got a free breakfast.
I would never stay there again. The interior fountains provide that nice chlorine smell thoughout the four-floor atrium. The floorplan is spread out due to the architecture, forcing you to walk through and around the atrium to find your elevator bank, similar to a casino. The restaurants are mediocre at best. The pool is pitiful.
Unique Quality: Because the towers are cylindrical, the rooms are shaped like a piece of pie, which does not function very well. Many of the "views" are not much to view.
Directions: Downtown next to Bunker Hill
A few movies where shot in this hotel. Two that come to mind right away are True Lies with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jaime Lee Curtis and In the Line Of Fire with Clint Eastwood. I know there were a number of others i just cant remember the names.
Also if you are in downtown on the weekend there might be plenty of detours. On the weekends especially, sometimes during the week days, they are always filming in this area.
I spent a long time just walking around and exploring the hotel. There were alot of interesting art all over the place. there was alos alot of fountains and plants everywhere. The hotel is very modern in style and very elegant. Theres wide open spaces and many windows.
The regular rooms at the Bonaventure are alright. i was expecting something alittle more fancy, or maybe bigger. the rooms are pretty small and seem rather crowded. There are mirrors on the walls of some rooms in order to make it look somewhat larger.
They are nice, neat and clean though and that is what is important.
Unique Quality: Nice goose down comforters and excellent views of Downtown.
Directions: Figueroa and 4 th Streets
I used to come to the Bonaventure a long time ago for parties, dances, and concerts. it has been a while since i had been here but i can see why they refer to the Bonaventure as the "city within the City". This place is very big, you can actually get lost in here.
On this occassion, my uncles who are jewelers in the Jewelery District here in Downtown decided to get a room enstead of driving all the way back to Palmdale. So we went to dinner and drinks and i got a chance to take some pictures of the room here. Considering the Bonaventure is such a large hotel the rooms are rather small.
The are 42 restaurants, shops, and boutiques. There are 1354 rooms as well, and i beleive something like 135 suites.
The prices of the rooms fluctuate quite a bit depending on what is going on in the city. The lowest price i have seen to stay here was 135.00 per night but it can go as high a over 250.00 dollars. On this particualr night the rooms were going for 185.00 per night. Last week they were going for 289.00 per night. And of course the suites are more expensive. The Bonaventure caters to the business traveler and there is a business center downstairs. Some of the rooms are also geared for the business traveler.
Unique Quality: The lobby is a six story lobby/atrium, and the building is in the shape of five cylinder shaped towers. Inside the building is mostly made of concrete.
The elevators shoots through the roof of the atrium and up the outside of the building.
Directions: Corner of 4th and Figueroa, Cant miss it. its huge
There are quite a lot of hotels situated in the New Down Town, like the Marriot Hotel, the Wilshire Grand Hotel and the Bonaventure Hotel. The last one was designed by John Portman and opened in 1978.
The four cylinders that flank the central cylinder are made of mirrored glass and contain luxury rooms and suites. A restaurant on the 35th floor boasts a revolving cocktail lounge that provides a 360 degree panoramic view of L.A.
Unique Quality: The Bonaventure is the largest hotel in Los Angeles, with 1368 rooms (468 more rooms than any other hotel in Downtown Los Angeles). At street level, pedestrians are welcomed to the Bonaventure by unfriendly fortress facades.
Located in the centre of the downtown financial district it is a huge hotel of a standard that you would expect of a modern Westin
Unique Quality: This hotel has an upper level atrium offering a good range of shops and restaurants plus a rooftop steakhouse and revolving cocktail lounge
Directions: Exit onto 3rd Street and turn right. Turn right onto Flower Street and drive 1 block to the hotel. The hotel is located on the right.
I stayed here on a business trip, so I don't remember how affordable it was. The lobby and interior use a lot of outdated bare cement columns, particularly dismal in winter. The hotel features something they call the "heavenly bed" and the "heavenly shower"--still not sure what was supposed to be heavenly about them, but everything was clean and in order. My coworker mentioned that he could hear the phone conversations of the person in the room next to his, but I didn't have any problems like that.
What I liked was the concierge staff--supernice and helpful. They gave us lots of maps, a great restaurant list we used every night, and some tourist magazines.
Unique Quality: The concierge staff is the best part of this hotel. The other good thing is that the restaurant on top of it is said to have one of the best views of the city.
Can't say that I stayed here but I absolutely love the architecture and ambience inside!
This world-class hotel is more like a city within a giant metropolis.
Have a drink or dine here if you don't want to splurge for a room!
Unique Quality: It is very Asian-friendly. I see Japanese businessmen here often. Many quality restaurants of Japanese, Thai and other fine cuisine.
Directions: Downtown LA
I have never stayed here since I am an Angelino. But it's a great place to have drinks at the top at a revolving restaurant. There is a restaurant , but also later at night you can have coctails and appetizers/dessert in a fancy setting/great for those after formal events. They used to have fancy glasses with daiquiri's for $11 (could be more now)/take home souvenir. Or you can lounge in the basement's bar area.
Also used to be show's opener for It's a living. I think.
Unique Quality: Great Views.
Great late night coctails in revolving restaurant.
If you're going to be in Downtown for business, the WESTIN BONAVENTURE HOTEL is another cool place I don't mind recommending...
The 35-storey Westin Bonaventure is a futuristic structure and the city's largest hotel. Made up of five cylindrical, mirrored-glass towers; it looks like something straight out of a sci-fi movie.... with glass elevators shooting up through the roof of the lobby and racing up the sides of the glistening high-rise. Visible from Harbor Freeway, it is one of the most recognizable buildings on the downtown horizon..... along with City Hall and the Music Center, of course. In fact, it is one of the ten most-photographed buildings in the world! No mean feat indeed.
P.S. If you have seen one of Harrison Ford's earlier movies - 'The Blade Runner' (a sci-fi thriller)... you'd find this hotel very familiar.

Planning to go to LA in Ocober with my bf. We are planning to stay at the Westin Bonaventure. Has anyone stayed there? What are your experiences?
The Bonaventure is a nice hotel... but it's downtown where there's not that much going on. There are some sights and restaurants around there, of course... but you'll probably want to spend most of your time on the Westside or around Hollywood.
Be sure to ride the exterior elevator to the top of the Bonaventure. That's fun! Also, at night you can check out the Rooftop at the Standard Hotel, which is a very trendy nightspot not far away.
I've stayed there for a modeling convention I went to a long time ago. It's a pretty nice hotel. I had a great time.
I have stayed here multiple times and it is a great hotel with great amenities. It is close to shopping and to food and to the metro station. The one thing though: parking is kinda expensive. The food court at the hotel has a lot of good food (cheap, and fast, but it's still good) and their lounge is beautiful and it rotates!
I can't say enough good about this hotel. I would recommend it to anyone!
