900 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015
One of the most luxurious hotels downtown Los Angeles has to offer, The Ritz-Carlton is a prime choice for travelers looking to spare no expense on comfort and elegance. Located within the L.A. Live complex, the hotel is situated at the heart of many of downtown LA’s main attractions, including the Staples Center, Microsoft Theatre, The Grammy Museum and more.
251 S Olive St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
The Omni Los Angeles Hotel is another fine choice for those seeking a lavish stay in Los Angeles. The 17-story hotel features 453 guest rooms and suites, state-of-the-art spa facilities, as well as plentiful dining options. Located on Bunker Hill, The Omni Hotel is conveniently situated in the heart of downtown, mere minutes from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Walt Disney Concert Hall, as well as Pershing Square.
901 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015
For those looking for a place for an extended stay with the amenities of a 4-star hotel, look no further than the Residence Inn at L.A. Live. This 23-floor high-rise offers 7 different-sized rooms and suites (219 in total), each with their own fully-equipped kitchen, including fridge, stovetop, microwave, dishwasher and more – everything you need to feel fully at home is included with your stay at this downtown hotel.
1020 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90015
While the Luxe City Center Hotel is just a few blocks from LA Live, it’s a bit different from its colossal hotel neighbors. Referred to as a “boutique hotel,” Luxe City Center offers just 178 guest rooms and suites, each considerably larger than rooms of its downtown Los Angeles competitors. Additional amenities include a 42” flat panel TV in every room, hypoallergenic bedding with goose down pillows, as well as fine dining and lounge options in the hotel.
120 S Los Angeles St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
The DoubleTree Hotel can be found on the outskirts of the Little Tokyo district, in close proximity to Los Angeles City Hall, Grand Central Market as well as the Civic Center. The hotel’s many amenities include a wide spectrum of room and suite options, 24-hour fitness center, complimentary yoga classes, as well as multiple dining options. Last but not least, probably the best feature of the DoubleTree is their Kyoto Gardens, a half-acre of carefully manicured greenery, waterfalls and ponds in a traditional Japanese style.
929 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015
Another popular hotel housed in a historic downtown LA building is the relatively new Ace Hotel. Opened in early 2014, the Ace is positioned in the United Artists building, originally a film studio first built in 1927. This hotel is popular among younger generations, partly due to their modern and hip furnishings, as well as their rooftop pool/bar which frequently hosts live music and events.
431 W 7th St, Los Angeles, CA 90014
Located inside a historic building that dates back to 1880, this private athletic club offers a unique experience that combines luxury accommodations with extensive workout facilities. They offer a wide variety of lodging options, from deluxe rooms to athletic club-themed suites, plentiful fine dining choices, as well as elegant spaces to host a private event or wedding.
550 S Flower St, Los Angeles, CA 90071
Just a 3-minute walk from the 7th St / Metro Center station, The Standard hotel is a prime destination for young jet setters. One of their main draws is their rooftop pool and bar, which offers live music and parties most nights of the week, not to mention a great view of the city. Additionally, they are dog friendly and have a new ping pong club on the second floor. Their accommodations are comfortable and modern, and their rates are quite affordable, especially for being a 4-star hotel.
328 E 1st St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Situated in the vibrant Little Tokyo district, the Miyako Hotel is an excellent choice for those looking for easy access to many of downtown LA’s best attractions. The hotel is just a block away from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Japanese American National Museum, as well as the Gold Line Metro Station. In addition to its comfortable, minimalist accommodations, the hotel offers an on-site spa, workout facilities, as well as karaoke lounge and various dining options.
711 S Hope St, Los Angeles, CA 90017
Another hotel close to the 7th Street / Metro Center is the Sheraton Grand.
