TRAVELERS BEWARE: It's a "tourist trap!"

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 17, 2009

___________________________

My advice: Avoid this place like the plague! It should be named, "The Pre-historic Mayfair Hotel."

I was very disappointed and felt cheated/swindled. The only nice thing about the hotel was the lobby; it is very spacious, with high ceilings. But, the service and the rooms are really atrocious. The workers are apathetic. The rooms vary tremendously in size and quality. You might get a clean, neat, and sparsely furnished/decorated room, or one that is very dingy, shoddy and dismal looking. You will most certainly share your room with bedbugs and cockroaches! The bathrooms are very, very tiny; my closets at home are larger.

The area is close to downtown L.A., but it is a very SCARY and DANGEROUS neighborhood. There are many criminal types and homeless folks lurking about that hotel; so, be extra careful and vigilant—especially after dark!

GREAT DOWNTOWN ACCOMODATION

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 5, 2007

WE STAYED AT THIS HOTEL IN 2004 WITH A GROUP TRAVELLING TOGETHER FROM AUSTRALIA. WE WERE TRAVELLING WITH A BASEBALL TEAM AND A FEW FAMILIES AS WELL. THE AGES OF THE TEAM MEMBERS WERE BETWEEN 15 AND 18. WE FOUND THIS HOTEL VERY ACCOMODATING AS WE WERE MAINLY THERE TO SLEEP ONLY. THE ROOMS WERE BIG ENOUGH AND THE BATHROOMS CLEAN. THE STAFF WERE VERY OBLIGING AS WELL. THE FOYER OF THIS HOTEL IS VERY BEAUTIFUL.
