The room was immaculate, and very quiet. I asked for a room in back (away from the street), and the location plus the triple-pane windows ensured a very quiet night for sleeping. Moreover, the night receptionist, who I've met before, is very welcoming & friendly, and the same for the lady who is the morning receptionist. I've stayed in this hotel 3-4 times before and think it is one of the best values in terms of L.A. hotels. The elevator is very small. It barely holds three people comfortably, especially if one of them is large.
