We stayed in the Kawada for 6 nights and firstly I would like to say that the staff at the Kawada were very nice and friendly, they helped us to plan our stay in LA. The room smelt very smokey every time we entered our room although the room was cleaned and bedding changed every day. The location was not...

hmmmmmm, a bit of a strange one, staying in downtown is not really helpful - staying near hollywood boulevard would have been better. Had to pay $15 per day extra for Parking - so would have preffered to use that money for a better location, and you have to use the valet. Staff a bit distant, but would help if...

this was an awful, 80's hotel in the worst location. although the room was clean enough, it was absolutely tiny. could have put up with this if it wasnt for the, frankly frightening area it was in. we had booked up for 9 nights (and paid) but only managed 4 nights before cutting out losses and paying for a different...

My husband and I stayed at Kawada as it seemed like it would be close to the attractions in LA while we were on our holiday for 5 days. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted OK. The reception area was very 1970/80's. We were told that we had to pay for parking ($15+tax per night!). My husband...

The receptionist was indifferent. Very basic room, no coffee pot, no hair dryer. Noisy, noise from the restaurant downstairs, cars on the street. The evening manager gave good directions on where to go or not to go in the night time. The room is sort of clean, but the carpet is old, bathroom dark and the fan is noisy. There...

Arrived 12th Dec 06....First night we were worried about tge location but it was well lit up so not too bad. The room we initially got was a bit noisy as it was facing the main road, so we asked to be moved on the next day which the staff were happy to offer us a different room, although it...

We didnt have a car in LA so the location was very convenient, just one block from the metro and bus stop. Located in the downdown you can even walk to convention center. The room and the bath was extremely small but okay if u r just sleeping there and not spending any more time. There was a kitchenette but...

I was scheduled for Federal Jury Duty, and this is one of the hotels on thier referral list. For someone that is not familiar with the Downtown LA area, parking was a headache. It's not very well marked where individuals should park for valet parking (there is only "Taxi Parking Only" signs in front of the hotel). When I contacted...

As a seasoned traveler finding a good hotel in a downtown metro area is usually an expensive proposition however I have stayed on several occasions at the kawada hotel in los angeles and have been pleasantly surpirsed on each visit.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
