Call it a 3.5 We’ve stayed at the LA Athletic Club several times. It is still a lovely, historic, centrally located, transit accessible hotel. The rooms are still attractive, the beds still comfortable. The pool, which my wife enjoyed, is still great, though you need reservations. But in these post-COVID days: The old world style breakfast room is closed, replaced by reasonably good grab and go bags. The bar is closed, replaced by a short hours spot on the garage roof. The garage elevator is turned off at 9, earlier on weekends. My disabled wife had to walk down the ramp. We could have spent less than LAAC’s $20 for parking had we known. They said it was for security, but there are more effective ways to achieve this. Maid service isn’t daily, it’s by request only. OK, but two straight days we requested it and didn’t get it. Our trash cans were overflowing because of getting more take out food in this COVID time. I had to stop a cleaner in the hall to dispose of trash. The building entrance is now around the side, next to a narrowed entrance. I hope the Athletic Club gets back to its old form. Oh yeah, there are street people in the neighborhood. Mostly what there are working people, but just know this if it bothers you.

Our first time staying; won't be our last--this place was GREAT. Athletic facilities (lap lane and open swim pool, steam room, jacuzzi, sauna) were all fabulous and a great treat for pre or post LA exploring. Front desk staff were SO attentive and helpful; kudos to Maria for her assistance and great local tips. Location is wonderful; within walking distance to two LA Metro (stops which takes you everywhere, even Venice Beach!) Walk to Grand Central Market for a great breakfast! Really great hotel!

I booked a night here based on the very positive reviews on TA. The reviews were spot on. The building is historical. The interior walls of the lobby are filled with historical photos and articles chronicling the history of LAAC. The staff is awesome. Teri and Gretchen (we think we remember names correctly?) were so friendly and helpful at check in. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was obvious they have gone to great lengths to care for the property. Good walking location or short Uber ride to all DTLA has to offer. Would stay here again without hesitation.

location is great in the heart of LA. Spotless room very clean and fresh, the hotel has gone thru remodeling and they have done a superb job!! The staff knows the area well and they are able to guide you as to which restaurants are open or what retail stores area nearby that are also open.

We truly enjoyed our stay at hotel. Totally recommend the hotel. The front desk staff were very friendly and willingly suggest things to do in the area and where to eat. Our room was clean and the bed extremely comfortable. We will definitely stay there again.
