Sheraton Los Angeles Downtown
- What's Included
Didn't spend much time in the hotel but what time I did spend there the corner king room is large with a big couch and dining height table. The bed is comfortable (pillows not so much). Bathroom is clean but nothing too fancy. The "view" from the corner room wasn't really a view at all...so don't pay extra thinking you are going to get a great view. But to be expected in the middle of downtown. Metro stop right across the street. Less sketchy people around hotel than other areas of downtown. The restaurant District attached to hotel is good and open late. Overall really great location central to everything in downtown.
The hotel has the latest technology in the sense that the rooms are equipped with the latest technology. Apart from the rooms the lifts and the other parts of the hotel too are equipped with the latest technology. Staff is superb, location is great, they have a metro station at a stones throw away distance. The best hotel I stayed during my entire trip to US.
While the property is new, location is good and staff is polite and well trained - I had a strange experience. The staff offered me an upgrade possibly due to being an spg member. However, when I got to the room, it had a pull out bed and a gigantic boardroom attached to it. Didnt make sense ! I was only there for a couple of nights so I let it be but if you're going to be visiting, it would make sense to check the room before taking it up. A bit ridiculous.
Sheraton Grand Los Angeles is really modern and clean, The talent members are super nice! I check in with Geovany, amazing guy! He is a really nice gentlemen, Geovany made our stay the best, thank you so much!
I stayed here for four nights on business in late May. The event I attended was at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which is a brisk twenty-minute walk away. This location was up to Sheraton standards IMO, with clean, modern rooms. The lobby is certainly attractive but I don’t rate hotels according to the appearance of their lobbies. I was in a king-bed room on the 22nd floor. The view was not very impressive because of other nearby tall buildings. Had I been traveling with my wife I would have requested a room with a better view but when traveling alone on a business trip I don’t much care. I do care about noise at night and thankfully didn’t experience anything disturbing. However, even though the room was a considerable distance from the elevators I could still hear them occasionally. I opted to do the “Green Choice” thing, electing to not have my room cleaned for the duration of the stay in exchange for extra Starwood points. I should note that the cleaning staff didn’t come in the room at all (as far as I know), not even to replenish water or coffee or even to make the bed (without replacing the sheets). That was okay by me but might not be to everyone’s preference. I should also note that I was initially credited only for two nights of extra points but they fixed that discrepancy at checkout. Regarding the hotel’s eating establishments I only ate breakfast there, twice in District on the Bloc and twice at the Lobby Bar (the latter identified as "Link" on my receipts). I have already reviewed the District on its Tripadvisor page. Since the Lobby Bar doesn’t currently have its own Tripadvisor page I will comment on it here. For breakfast they serve quick on-the-go items including a breakfast sandwich and a breakfast burrito. Of course they have fruit and muffins. You can also get oatmeal but it’s just the instant kind in packages. Prices are relatively high but if you are pressed for time as I was the Lobby Bar is a decent option. Bear in mind that if you are heading to the convention center there is Denny’s on South Figueroa Street, which is on the route.Some comments about the hotel's elevator system, which is unlike any I have previously experienced (but might be common now for all I know). Not only are the cars keycard controlled at all hours of the day (not just in the evening) you can’t get to a given floor from the lobby without swiping a keycard and selecting the floor number. There are keycard readers on each floor, of course, but there are no readers or buttons inside the cars. Hence, there is no way to select a floor once you are inside a car. If you enter one from the lobby without swiping (because someone else swiped their card or the car just arrived) and someone else in the car isn’t going to your floor you will either end up leaving the car on another floor or riding the car back down to the lobby. I confess I did the latter the first time but I suspect I’m not alone. I suspect that this kind of elevator access is intended to ensure a level of extra security but I can imagine a few ways a visitor up to no good could get around it. Time will tell if it is the wave of the future or just an oddity.
