Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about your stay at the Shelter Hotel. The reservation was checked in at 11.45AM. 3 hours before check in time providing you with a first impression guest service, at the time of check in there were a total of 4 guests, when my front desk agent asked how many people will be staying the registered guest said only 2 but never mentioned that there will 5 more coming to the room which makes the total to 9. I informed the last three visitors that there are too many people and they can use the restroom in the lobby. I then went to the room told the guest that there are too many visitors in the room, that is when the visitors were walking behind me threatening to write a bad review on every site. Our number priority is to provide excellent guest service. unfortunately there are sometimes we fail and we try to make sure it does not happen again.

How's the parking?
They have covered spaces under the hotel. Cars park 2 deep in some spaces, so they keep your car key in order to move car if someone needs to get out. We were in handicapped space, so we had no issues. I'm not sure how other guests dealt with it.

"Walls and floors are all very thin, so noise carries. Try staying on higher floors maybe"
"The rooms facing the street are definitely worth it - otherwise the rooms on the inside provide no view, except into the inside yard."
"Very close to downtown Los Angeles and the Miracle Mile area if you're visiting LA on vacation."
"Make sure you're on the 4th floor"
"Near Philippine Consulate, Near Downtown LA, Good neighborhood, no smoking, comfortable bed, no breakfast."
