LA Live is relatively new in LA years but has established itself as an integral part of downtown, creating the synergy for DTLA. You have your choice of hotels(not inexpensive), a good selection of restaurant choices and entertainment.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
