"Cold room, no blankets, bad part of town."
The heat didn't work and the room was freezing. It was so cold that we couldn't sleep without using extra towels as blankets. By "historic" they just mean old and run down. It was $116 total for one night and the check in and out were apparently very difficult and took a very long time. It may be close to down town, but it's surrouded by deteriorating […] little shacks and it is not a good idea to walk anywhere after dark. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I love this hotel, but in a what-once-was-Grand-Budapest-Hotel-Raymond-Chandler-hopefully-haunted kind of way. It's old, a little run down, a bit awkward, in a not-so-great neighborhood, but you area fairly close to downtown, and it is a good price for L.A. I tend to like this area of L.A. more and like this hotel, but it might not be your cup of t […] ea. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Waste of Time"
The Check in was Ridiculously long only one person working at the front desk .I booked through Expedia a week in advance. I didn't have the $50 deposit so I had to go to the bank to get cash . I told them ill be back I didn't know the area so it took me about half an hour to find a bank and get back to the hotel . Once I came back the they told me my […] room was already given to some one else, I asked how I didn't cancel my stay and i said ill be right back. Apparently I wasn't precise enough and didn't give them a play by play. So they gave it to some one else thinking i was not coming back . The whole situation was so irritating I spoke to the manger who found me a room that was smaller and and had only twin beds it was downgraded but still the same price as my original booking. I really really did not enjoy my stay the staff were unfriendly and weren't much help. I would never stay there or recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Old property offers good value"
We enjoyed our three night stay in a double room. The two beds were comfortable, the television cable did not offer ESPN and the bathroom was small, though manageable. The breakfast buffet was reasonably priced and adequate. The hotel staff was courteous. The location affords walking into downtown for shopping, dining and entertainment. A car is not […] necessary. Overall, the hotel offers good value in a high cost city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Incompetent staff at check in. They Ended up charging my card and clearing out all the money in my bank account, over $1,000, when my balance to be paid was only $294. Leaving me with only the cash I happened to bring with me for my weekend vacation. The rooms were very tiny, but very clean, the one good thing about the hotel. The bathroom door was […] very difficult to close due to the smallness of the bathroom. I had three rooms and they were all the same, so it was not a fluke. They were rude at the time we left. Telling us it was our fault for their not charging the correct amount for parking our cars and that we should have been more clear in telling them how long our car was parked there. Because we would only park our cars there one night when we were staying three days. (That's sarcasm in case you couldn't tell.) Over all the experience was not fun. The money they charged and supposedly refunded or "voided" still has not been put back into my account and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone I know. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Poor quality,overcharged for such a poor hotel"
Old, outdated, unkempt, musty smell, dirty, overall far too expensive for such a poor quality hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay here!!!! If you do, you'll regret it!!!"
This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in!!! The creative exterior pictures make the hotel look good, but once you get to your room, you realize how you were scammed. The room is really, really small. It smells, the walls are cracking, the carpet is really old and has gaps, where it is coming apart. The neighborhood is not a good place to go out […] at night. You would be better off staying at a Motel 6, than staying at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel need an update . Very old . Good location if you need to stay downtown at low coast . Walking distance to Convention Centre , Staples and Nokia Theatre .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable & close to downtown"
I have stayed here on two different occasions & I have been pleased each time. 'Although the rooms are relatively outdated & in need of remodeling, they provided me what i needed; proximity to downtown, a place to sleep, a place to shower, and comfort! I could do without the $14/day charge for parking, but enjoyed my stay nonetheless!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
European Hotel ambiance close to downtown and within walking distance of the Staples Arena and the LA Convention Center. Excellent Customer Service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Problem with the bathroom"
I had to take a shower with the water in my knees. I asked to the front to repair. But wasn't repaired.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would not go back"
I would not recommend this hotel. I had low expectations, and this hotel under delivered. There was no hot water in the sink and the sink leaked everywhere. The shower was very small, and it had a step in it, and since each step was only large enough for one foot, you had to shower with one foot on the top step, one foot on the bottom step, very bizarre. […] The room wasn't super clean, and it was in a bad location. I didn't feel safe walking alone in the evening, so I took a taxi to my meeting which was half a mile away.

"I expected more"
Overall was an ok stay, unfortunately seems that they are in the process of remodeling several flloors of the hotel which is a good thing however I think they need to improve their services.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
too small of rooms for priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Area is a little harsh but the hotel was niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Breakfast was great, but otherwise old worn out hotel with nothing to offer..staff is very friendly though!Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was small. The tub was small, and it had a weird step in it that made it difficult to even stand without slipping. All things considered, the price was good, the bed was clean, the pillows were comfy, and the location was ideal if you have an event or business in downtown LA.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not What It Looks like"
I needed a hotel to go to a festival so I was looking for a close hotel and I found this Mini Euros and I though the price was ok. When I when in the Room I was surprise on how small the beds where! I really did not though they where going to be so small they did not look that small on the picture it looks so different the room from what I got. And […] the tv is so outdated super old TV SET get a plasma tv And the bathroom is so small the whole room was so small and tidy.The walls are so thin you can hear your next door neighbors with no problem and you can hear everything in that hotel.They need to renovated. And charging for the parking 14 dlls a day I think is to much is should be already included on the price of the room I think that is ridiculous. And having to give them a 200 security deposit for the room was a joke you still have to have that amount available in your card. Like come on what I am going to do to that Room??

"mayfair very ok"
Hotel was quite nice, room large. But sink hot water tap too tight to turn & not fixed over 4 days after request to fix. Staff was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Has potential but it needs a serious overall."
Carpets were stained and old, beds were super hard but they tried to make up for it with 5 large pillows on a full size bed. The drain in the shower was slow. By the time the shower ended the bath tub was filled. I was trying to stay within budget and the walk to the convention center wasn't far at all, but to walk through homeless camp isn't worth […] it. Too dangerous to walk home at night in the dark. This part of downtown LA is VERY dirty. It's sad to see. I guess it's what I expected seeing reviews beforehand. When they brag about hosting a 1928 Oscar party and the show Weeds was filmed there in combination with the name "Historic" that should really clue you in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It looks nothing like in the pictures."
Both knobs on the shower had hot water. So the water was hot, really hot, like impossible to shower. Then I figured out the on of the knobs was hotter than the other, so I only left the not so hot one running, but it was still to hot to take a shower. Of course I have to run to a meeting and not time to deal with that. The pictures of the rooms looks […] so different... room with bare walls and and old television...

"You get what you pay for"
Nice but nothing pretty to look at aoundGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Bad neighborhood, very old hotel in desperate need of update.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Affordable, clean rooms."
Pretty good price given that it was a spur of the moment day trip that turned into an overnight one. The neighborhood is what you'd expect from the downtown LA area not surrounding the staples center. Hotel lobby interior was nice, some rooms were under refurbishment but it wasnt a disturbance during the stay. Would likely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I won't come back.."
The bathroom door it's old.. The bathtub was dirty.. The carpet smelled dirty..There's no refrigerator.. No water for coffee I have to go to buy my own water..The bed wasn't comfortable..

"A night in downtown"
Good value price dealGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Confortable, clean and great locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a last minute reservation. I called ahead to inquire about parking for a trailer and truck parking. The receptionist stated there was a lot across the street so there will be no issue. When we arrived it took twenty minutes to find a lot. The recommended one didn't have a spot big enough. So we parked the blocks away. The headboard was not […] attached to the bed frame. Therefore every time we got in or out of bed, it would slam against the wall. The bed are very small. My husband and I are tall, so our feet hung of the bed. If the staff is fully informed about certain guests concerns there will be no issue. Unfortunately we were tired,otherwise we would have left and booked elsewhere.

"Avoid this hotel."
The "Historic" Mayfair is the pitch. If only the hotel was managed with any respect for the building's history. This was the worst hotel I've stayed at in memory. The room was downright filthy, as was the bathroom. There was mold and mildew throughout the bathroom. The fixtures appear to be original. The tub was the most bizarre thing: about 4 feet […] long, it had a shallow end and a deep end. Unsuspecting guests (like me) step into the shallow end, and if you're not careful you can slip down to the deep end and fall, potentially suffering serious injuries. Truly dangerous and strange tub. The carpet in the room had to be 30 years old, and it was filthy. The drapes were difficult to open/close. The furnishings were old, dirty, and battered. The TV was a 24 inch model circa 1993. I wasn't expecting the Four Seasons. But I was expecting a modest, simple, clean hotel. I was shocked to see how badly this place was maintained and managed. A humble, no frills, clean motel beats the Mayfair in every category. The Mayfair wants the traveler to believe it is has historic charm. It was hard to see any charm when all you could smell in the 7th floor elevator area and hallway was cleaning solution masking a terrible musty odor. I selected this hotel for its proximity to my business meeting and for its economical rates. I will not return to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Had two double beds in the room but we had to sleep in just one bed because the other one had dirty sheets. We cut our stay short as a result but at least the air in the room seemed fresh.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, close to our destination."
We booked our room last minute for an event. Front desk was very nice, explained our options and rooms. When we arrived they checked us in early as we explained over phone we needed to check in early. Hotel is 90 years old so I didn't know what to expect, overall stay was good, people were very freindly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what I expected."
The surrounding area of this hotel was very shady. The only good thing about the surrounding businesses was the 711 a block away, but there isn't much else at walking distance. Nor would I recommend walking anywhere in that neighborhood. It was a bit off putting to have to pay for parking in their parking structure as their hotel guest. I'd much rather […] have them add that cost to the total and tell me it's free to park. The hotel lobby looks just like the pictures, but everything else needs major remodeling. The elevators alone seemed to be unreliable which was scary. The hotel room was super hot when we first walked in but luckily they had an ac unit. They also provide a pretty sizable fridge with freezer, which was a plus, but no microwave. Stains on the carpet and dusty old box tv set. Furniture looked like it was falling apart. The only thing that looked really clean were the sheets. Bathrooms super small. Boyfriend joked he had to pee to the side. Found hairs from previous guests between the towels and in the tub. That was a bit gross. Would not stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for the money"
I enjoyed my stay at the Historic Mayfair. It has been nicely maintained. It enjoys an excellent location to downtown, the equal of the Bonaventure at much less cost, and with lots easier access to parking. The Staff was excellent. The breakfast buffet was very good. I highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Won't stay there again"
This was the nastiest hotel I have ever stayed at. Hasn't been updated since McKinley was President. 3 foot tub, not 5 foot. Torn curtains. Hot water did not even come out of the faucet. Only there for one night - ne night too many. Get to work Mayfair!! Lobby was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed at several Hotels while In LA. The Historic Mayfair Hotel was the best overall. . The room was clean and nice. The breakfast was great,everything was fresh and at a very good price. I will stay again next time I am in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is tiny and microwave doesn't even work. Sucks.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Poor experience staying at Mayfair"
We had very bad experience staying at this hotel. Room was very small, the bath room was even smaller. The bathroom was the basically the size of a stall at a public restroom. It was extremely difficult to get into the bathroom and get out through the narrow doorway. There was no exhaust fan in the bath room. The exhaust vent was very dirty, hadn't […] been cleaned for years. The window curtain were dirty, the blanket on the bed appeared very old and may not have been cleaned either. The decoration of the room was poorly done. The only positive part of the hotel is the lobby-extremely fancy and large. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Looks good only in internet"
Location is fine and public transportation like buses stops in front of the hotel. They have reasonable choices for light breakfast. Lobby is decent BUT the SLEEPING ROOM WAS FILTHY YOU DON'T WANT TO STEP ON THE CARPET WITH BAREFOOT. Small bathroom and dark hallway. Hotel could be nice if properly maintained and taken cared.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for money"
Me and my friends had been travelling for some time and needed somewhere cheap to lay our heads in Los Angeles and we found the historic Mayfair. Couldn't of asked for anything better, rooms were clean and modern and a good size, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the location is brilliant, a short walk to the metro. The surrounding neighbourhood […] seemed a bit sketchy at times but always felt safe. Great for the price! Would defiantly recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice location! You can walk to Downtown LA. Service was good and customer services was good as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I went to visit and decided to stay there because we wanted to go to the clubs at night. The hotel room was small our room was next to the street so the cars woke me up early morning. It was creepy looked haunted but my husband loved it! Overall okay if you want to save money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
