    When reviewing, I believe if you're staying in a luxury 5 star hotel you get to be fussy. If you're staying in a cheap hostel or motel, you don't. However, there should always be basic standards of cleanliness. This is the one place I let...More

    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
