I have arrived today from England and paid over £1200 for the stay. The hotel is a mess! Under construction and even the bits that are supposedly completed are sub standard. Check in consisted of an unfriendly welcome then having to sign a form to say i would pay $500 if I smoked in the room even though I don't...

For what I paid per night it was ok. $34 per night parking and $50 deposit per night is ridiculous. Culturally the area the hotel is in can be scary if your not used to culture and the urban city lifestyle. I thought it was cool. The hotel is not far from DTLA. The staff is accommodating and this Hotel...

A large group of us were in town for the National Science Teacher Association conference. The Mayfair, which looks funky and cool on their website, was SUCH a letdown.

“The rooms are clean, updated and a little tight on the 5th floor, almost had a midtown Manhattan feel. My shower was so small I had to turn the water off to soap up, and the rest of the bathroom gets even smaller ”
