Just back from 3 nights at The Mayfair Hotel at the end of a 16 night trip across the USA. Sadly this once 'Historic' hotel is in bad need of restoration from top to bottom. Lobby entrance and front desk look appealing but from my experience that's where the good bit ends. Rooms are very tired with grubby curtains, damaged...

We arrived after a 20 hours of flying to be told we could not check in before 3pm as our room was not ready. At the time of booking I had requested an earlier check-in (11am) but this was not taken into account. The foyer is ok looking but the leather couches were peeling, it just looks tired. We got...

Needed to spend a few days visiting some clients in downtown L.A. Location was really close to where I needed, also just a short distance to Staples Center and the Fashion District. The neighborhood is undergoing a transformation with older buildings sandwiched between newer buildings. This hotel is certainly historic. I received a room that was recently remodeled and it...

As a disabled traveler on a tight budget, I stay in a great deal of single- and two-star properties. For many innkeepers, the tight economy and shrinking margins due to internet competition have meant that upgrades to their property are few and far between, and many are delaying maintenance due to cash flow issues. This is understandable, and even acceptable,...
