1.13km from First and HopeI used to live in DTLA and decided to return for a staycation at my old stomping grounds. The current Covid environment has made many of us explore our own backyards, and I had always heard amazing things about the Los Angeles Athletic Club and it’s Gentleman’s Club Members only vibe. We drove up to the front entrance of the LAAC and were a little confused as how to enter but spoke to Brian, who was clear, concise and explicit on how to get to the parking garage and how to buzz to be allowed in. Brian also helped us with check in, dinner reservations and more. Give this guy a raise! Our suite was quite impressive – a beautiful and spacious suite with fabulous views of the DTLA skyline from both the living area an the bedroom area. For me, the highlights were the outside restaurant which had a Tiki meets country club feel. The level of service from each person was spectacular. From the person who greeted us, to the persons who seated us, to the person who served us- they constantly were checking in on us to make sure we were okay WITHOUT being too obtrusive or overbearing. Some places check in on you so often that you cannot enjoy your meal! But here, the staff found the right balance. Food and cocktails were brought quickly and everything tasted great too! Also impressive was the Health Club which was also outside. In fact, this almost felt better than a “real” gym because it was outside with fresh air, cool breeze and killer views. Most importantly I felt safe here. Signage was placed in appropriate area and hand sanitizer was everywhere. I strongly suggest you treat yourself to this hotel. Los Angeles Athletic club gave me a VIP Private Club feel and level of service without it feeling too cold or impersonal. We would up staying an extra day because we loved the hotel so much, and we will certainly return.
