I was tired of the same large hotel chains and decided to take my money elsewhere. I saw the Hotel Figueroa across from the Staples Center and LA Live and decide to give it a try. You walk in and go back in time into what seems to be an old Moroccan movie set. The 13 story building was built in 1926 but the novelty and experience was still very new and exciting. We were welcomed by the hotel’s very charming and helpful proprietor. He gave us a few recommendations for dinner and sites to view around town. What I noticed were the other hotel guests were also enthralled with unique décor and artwork and tapestries around the hotel and expressed their liking of the hotel. The staff was conscientious and we were never lost in a crowd. The rooms are decorated with the same theme and made it very fun. The hotel is surrounded by giant modern hotel chains and food establishments so the only problem is making decisions as to what you want to eat. One recommendation made by the hotel manager was to go across the street to the neighboring hotel’s 26th floor and enjoy the views. The views were breathtaking! The Figueroa’s pool is heated and the bar is a very nice place to hang out. It comes alive in the evening as many come to enjoy the unique vibe of this very different place. Our experience was positive and memorable. We will be back to this small oasis in the big city.
