Hello Downtown LA

Staying in Downtown LA might strike you as an intimidating, somewhat dizzying proposition. But, look past the skyscrapers and never-ending traffic, and you’ll discover that there’s a lot more to the area than what first springs to mind. Cutting-edge architecture, world-renowned art galleries, gourmet experiences as good as anywhere else in the United States – the cultural vibrancy of Downtown is a big part of what makes LA the 'Entertainment Capital of the World.'

The ethnic enclaves of Chinatown, Little Tokyo, and Koreatown are all nearby, while sports fans can try and score tickets for basketball or ice hockey at Staples Center. The nightlife needs little introduction other than to say that the dive bars, brew-pubs and exclusive cocktail joints make for an eclectic night out that you’re not likely to forget in a hurry. Downtown LA is big and unashamedly boisterous, but once you’ve taken the plunge you might find yourself not wanting to leave.
