Staff friendly, clean rooms and lobby, great parking right next to hotel inside garage and perfect location. I would stay there again for sure. Booked through Hotel.com for one night while there for a show and never stayed at this hotel before so we were hoping it would be a good experience and it was! I do recommend this. This...

The hotel is well-worn and in need of a refresh. I was surprised to find the housekeeping was excellent, my room was extraordinarily clean. I could walk across the street to Olvera Street and the newly-opened Italian-American Museum, or cross another direction to the beautiful Union train Station. To get downtown using the inexpensive DASH, one just goes a few...

Older hotel but large rooms and clean. Desk person at night check in was very nice and helpful. Train was 6 hours late so I arrived at 4:00am and the walk over was fine with very few people on the street. I had called ahead to make sure they knew I would be there but late and had no problem...

The location was near Union Station which was a positive. But the confusing part was their non-smoking policy. People were smoking in rooms and the hallways. Even the elevator. The front desk crew was nice, but the owners spoke little english, which could be an issue in some cases.

This hotel is convenient to the Amtrak station and historic section of Los Angeles. It is about 2 blocks from the station. It doesn't look like much, but the cost is reasonable. The hotel seems safe. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are large. Not a large variety of breakfast items, but I was able to find enough to...

The Chinese man at the reception was horrible... He was unwelcoming, spoke very badly English. It is unacceptable even if it is not a luxury hotel ! Zero professionalism... Except that, the room was quite nice... But with this bad service, I went to another hotel. Only one advantage : geographic situation

Another train passenger told us about this place, and after the hotel I booked months ago put us in a noisy room, we switched to this one. It is quiet, convenient to Union Station, lots of good restaurants to walk to, pretty good bed, nice, tiled bathroom, good water pressure, hot water, pretty good air conditioning(yes, it is the middle...

I stayed here for one night before I started my cruise, I had flown all the way from Perth and arrived in at 8am the staff were so lovely and let me check into my room early, which I was so thankful for. The room was nice, the bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked. It is only a...

Rooms had the bad smell because of the mold, also probably smoked before, pillows had the terrible smell too. Breakfast variety was so limited. Since the hotel has the best location (if you aim to visit the museums and to spend your time downtown of the LA), they do not care about quality or service. Guests can make noise with...

My wife and I and a couple friends stayed at the Metro Plaza last month for Halloween weekend and we had a very enjoyable stay. The parking for the hotel is a great deal, as most hotels in Downtown/Chinatown charge in the $20-30 range per night. At the Metro Plaza it was $5 per day. The hotel is super close...
