Los Angeles, California

Our rate of $75 included buffet breakfast in the lobby. I went down, got a few items and brought them back to our room. There was a $10 fee for the dog.
The vanity/sink is outside the bathroom. The toilet and shower over tub were in the bathroom.
This is an 8 or 9 story hotel and we were on the 6th floor with a room in the back facing the parking lot. The downside to this was that at 2:00 a.m. the parking lot across the street was being cleaned by one of those trucks which vacuums up the debris. It was loud enough to wake me and it went on for at least an hour. The air conditioner in this room is one of those on the wall under the window that pulls in air from the outside, which is fine. But it also pulls in noise. I would stay here again, but I''d ask for a room in the front of the hotel as there is nothing across the street from the front. There is only a street in front of the hotel and it''s located on a side street off Louisiana Street.
There is a shopping center about 3 blocks away which has all kinds of restaurants. We ate at TGI Fridays. They''re all about the same, so no restaurant review for that.
The staff was friendly. One front desk clerk even gave us directions to an off-leash dog park about a mile away, which was a godsend for our dog. She got to run and play with her kind.
