"Old School" done well!

Posted Feb 8, 2018
If you like Old School club atmosphere, you will enjoy LAAC.

Great place in DTLA

Posted Feb 1, 2018
Had a great visit. The hotel was fun to explore since there is so many different floors with a full gym, pool, and courts. My favorite part of my trip was the rooftop. Watching the sunset up on the roof was amazing. The view in downtown was beautiful. Great hotel and the food was amazing too. Would recommend to anyone staying in DTLA.

Best place to stay

Posted Feb 1, 2018
First time staying at the Los Angeles althetic club. From the outside I was Skeptical. Once inside it is wonderful!! One of the best places I have ever stayed on the US. I could move in as a Permanent residence and never leave. Wonderful breakfast.

The building exterior blends into downtown and keeps us almost hidden. I like to think of it as camouflage to keep us as a hidden gem. I'm so glad you found us and it's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much. We keep working on upgrades throughout the building. We'll have more to show you when you return!

Always a good experience.

Close to many of the downtown things you want to see and do. Private club hotel feels safe, the dining room for breakfast is somewhat formal, delicious with good service. We enjoy the historic photos.

We really try to show off our history in the fun photos of our members and events we've collected from 1880 and onward. So glad to hear the location is good for you and feels safe. That is certainly a bonus being a private club. Thank you for your feedback!

Decent hotel for one night getaway

Posted Jan 15, 2018
We stayed here for a concert at Microsoft theater. The pictures over exaggerate how the hotel looks. The rooms are dark, bathroom had a musty smell and looks like a locker room. The hotel and gym amenities are old in general. The best part was the breakfast and the bed was comfortable

I'm sorry to hear that the amenities felt old. We just replaced most of the gym equipment and the hotel furnishings are actually not old (although we did base them on historic designs). The bathrooms are pretty basic and I agree, they could do with an update (right now they are just white with very little decor). The breakfast is pretty tasty and I'm pleased to hear the bed was comfortable.

Nice rooms

Posted Jan 8, 2018
Pros: The room and the restaurants
Cons: the lobby and entrance of the hotel
From the outside it did not seem that nice and you have to park your car at an adjacent parking lot which does connect to the hotel lobby. The lobby hotel it si not that nice but the room was very nice kind of old school hotel, the breakfast place was very nice and the bar at the hotel seem super nice even do I did not use it I had the opportunity to see it while having breakfast....over all it is a good hotel and it is convenient located.

It sounds like you appreciate the direction we are heading in with respect to design. The places you like the most in our hotel are the places we have recently renovated and restored. We're looking forward to working on the lobby in the future. I'm so glad our choices appeal to you and I hope you get to come back and check out a newly restored/renovate lobby!

Classic Hotel

Posted Jan 7, 2018
We loved the LAAC. It has a great vibe and is in a god location for Downtown LA. We were able to walk to great restaurants and bars. Downtown still has a lot to improve on but regardless this hotel is great for couples wanting to get out or workout. The workout facilities and pool were great. It is a dream hotel for the workout enthusiast or athelte. My favorite part was the bar and hotel which had great service and food. We would definitely return.

Invention (our bar on the 3rd floor) has a great atmosphere and truly delicious hand crafted cocktails and our chef has been creating some lovely choices for our menus that we are very proud of. It's lovely to hear that you were able to enjoy our unique private club/hotel as well as the friendly staff that run it. Thank you for taking the time to let us know!
