2.92km from Musashiya Udon NoodleWould've been a perfect room except for…..the nasty stale smell of old cigarettes that seemed embedded deep into the furniture and carpets!!! I'll start from the beginning. This hotel is in the most random part of Los Angeles. There's not much within walking distance, so for decent food, you'll have to order delivery or drive somewhere. It's newly remodeled and I think used to be another hotel, but even though it's been remodeled for about a year, they still have a vinyl sign stuck to the outside, so if you blink, you may miss the turn into the valet. Parking is valet, which is $2/half hour, or $20 for overnight. The lobby is nothing fancy, just a small counter with many signs to socially distance yourself from other guests. Checking in was easy. Check in is 3pm, but they let me check in fairly early, around 2. Also in the lobby were fixtures where breakfast usually is served, but because of the pandemic, no breakfast. My room was beautiful and HUGE! I booked a loft suite with high ceilings, spiral staircase, and hanging bulb chandelier. So the only problem? The gross cigarette smell. It's kinda disappointing in an age where deep cleaning is essential that this is an issue. By mistake, the manager Mike almost entered my room (even though the Do Not Disturb button was lit). But I thought, while he's here to help me close the window that I opened because I tried to air out the cigarette smell. He was able to help with the window, but when I asked for some air freshener, his response was, , "Uhh….umm..well….I don't know if we have it…..ummmm…" Not very proactive for a manager. He eventually called to say they didn't have any. I guess I'll just have to live with the smell. There were a few drawers, one that seemed to be some kind of fridge. I don't know because it wasn't plugged in nor was there a way to plug it in. But everything else from the living room/ seating area to the cool room design and lighting were GREAT!! The high ceilings gave great acoustics when I felt like bursting out into song. And the many channels fro Direct TV made me feel right at home. There is a tub/shower, a small Keurig machine, a safe, and a microwave. But it was the bougie room design and furnishings that did it for me. You will enjoy staying here. But is you stay in room 406, bring your own Glade plug-ins.
