Noisy in the morning

The most important thing is the parking. If arriving at night, consider parking on the street and moving your car at 8am into the lot. The garage next door is unstaffed and a bit empty/creepy at night and even in the day time because there are not too many people around. ($12 parking.) As for the hotel, it has a lovely, cozy lobby with a fireplace, a fantastic stylish conference room and friendly staff. Our room, however, looked straight at another building and it was super noisy in the morning when there was a trash pick up. In addition the wand shower would not stay in place and kept spraying me in the face. Miserable shower. Good water pressure at least. For someone who is on a budget, I would consider this hotel. I probably wouldn't return, but that's just because I"m spoiled by staying in nicer hotels. Very friendly and helpful staff. Advice to them: improve the parking situation -- i.e. have a valet to park the cars. And FIX YOUR SHOWER!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Try Yxta restaurant at 601 S. Central Ave. Yes, you drive through Skid Row to get there, which is a little disconcerting and yes, it's in a strip mall. But the restaurant is hip, the food is delicious and it's a secret find that will impress your friends. Fantastic enchiladas and chile rellenos and amazing guacamole.

Basic, Served the purpose

Looks better than it is. The hotel lacks attention to detail in the facilities. Room smells damp and musty. Hotel book was stained from water damage and had duplicate pages. The staff was friendly enough and accommodating. The view from my room was the space between buildings so a lot of AC units and duct work. If you sacrifice a view the room should sparkle. it didn't.

The staff was helpful, friendly, and polite. Price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the nearby area. The business traveler essentials are all included: free wifi, business computer room, continental breakfast, gym access, iron and ironing board in the room, etc.

Woken Up at 6am By Garbage

Overall, the hotel is nice and it's location is nice. The problem is that we were woken up at 6am by the sounds of the garbage truck and this went on for about 2 hours. I still don't know where all that garbage could have come from.

Great downtown value

The O Hotel is a charming boutique a block and a half from the 7th Street METRO station, which connects to multiple subway and light rail lines. The decor is modern, with a welcoming fireplace in the bar/lobby area. The great transit access allowed us to enjoy all the parts of downtown that are within walking distance of the more expensive hotels like Westin. The immediate neighborhood is very safe and in an up and coming part of town. LA Live and Fig+7th are both within a 10 minute walk, so there is easy access to nightlife. The staff were very helpful in recommending things to do in downtown and helped us order cabs when we needed them.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The Grand Central Market is a wonderful way to take in the many flavors of LA. We had two entrees for $10 at the China Cafe, a charming counter-top cafe in the heart of the market. The Market is a very enjoyable 30 minute walk from the hotel, or two subway stops away at the Civic Center Station.

Pros and Cons

It was a little bit of a style over substance kind of hotel. The location is great for parking, and proximity to the Staples Center. Also, the front desk workers are really friendly. I didn't love anything about the washroom, television and the continental breakfast, though tasty, was very limited.
