Very good value hotel not far from downtown LA. I attended two events at Crypto.com arena and found it very convenient to get to and from the arena using this hotel as a home base. The Metro light rail train, a 5 minute walk away, provides easy access to downtown. I found the area around the hotel quite safe to walk around; I can’t say the same for most of downtown LA. The room was comfortable, good temperature, and clean. However, the rooms are showing their age with things like peeling wallpaper and nicks in the paint. Overall, I highly recommend the USC Hotel.

TO DO AANAPISI - APAHE Conference - pre conference as well - Alexandra - Nirosh - Ben STEM Workshop Programming I checked in on Thursday, 2/1 and upon arriving to my room I found I did not have a desk. I attempted to call the front desk, only to find out the phone in the room wasn't working. I called the front desk on my cell phone and explained that I needed a room with a desk since I'm there as part of a doctoral program wherein we do have coursework to complete. I was told that not all rooms have desks and that I should have specified that I needed a desk when I made my reservation. I found that odd to have to request something that is part of a normal room set up at most institutions (and the hotel itself has desks in other rooms). I explained that I was not aware of that policy and it were an actual policy, that it needed to be a part of the reservation form. The front office then said that they could not move me to a room with a desk, but would check to see if they could get a desk moved to my room. They would also send a technician up to check on the room phone that did not work. They indicated that they would call me back to let me know. I never received a phone call. On Friday, 2/2 I went down to the front desk to check in on this request. They indicated that they had no record of this, and that "sometimes the people in certain shifts don't leave notes." So, I explained the situation. This time though, I had an added situation. The tv in my room did not have access to Netflix and it kept asking me to restart the system. The front desk rep went with me to my room to check on this. I shared with him the desk concern, and he also said that he'd get one moved to my room and the phone would be replaced. He also indicated that he needed a tech to look at the netflix issue. He left and came back with another gentleman, who said that he didn't know what to do, and that the person who did wouldn't be back until Monday (2/5). I could live without the Netflix, but I felt like I would at least get a desk and working phone. I never heard from them again. I gave up on this, but did want to find the person who helped me on Friday. He was nowhere to be seen all weekend. In all, it wasn't a bad place to lay my head, but I felt that I should not have to pay so much for things that were never addressed. My room rate was $295 a night, plus taxes and parking, which left me with a bill close to $1000 for something I felt wasn't worth that amount. I t

My wife and I stayed here the night before her surgery close by. We had a room facing campus and Figueroa. If possible, stay on the opposite side, as it can be noisy. The hotel is nice, and has a pool and gym. Lots of places to eat close by. Most were closed on the Sunday we were there, but plenty of other spots. We had access to the executive suite for food and drinks. We would stay again if in the area. Parking is $35, but most hotels in LA charge for parking!

The traffic noise is really loud which made resting/sleeping challenging. You can hear everything going on outside from honking, sirens and people yelling. If you are on any USC related event/business, it is very convenient to be close to campus.

Exceptional stay. Spacious room, bed comfy enough to satisfy me, who needs a soft mattress, and the hubby, who needs a harder surface. Staff is second to none. Within walking distance to BMO stadium, the colosseum, and science center. Best housekeeping staff I've ever encountered. Please, tip them extra! They earn it. Our stay was amazing.

The best thing about the USC Hotel is that it is directly across the street from USC. It is the old Renaissance Hotel that is now operated by USC. It is an average hotel, nothing special about it. It's about due for a refresh. Pricing gets very high when there are activities at USC. If it's convenience you need this is the place. If not, I would stay elsewhere and Uber it in. It's not a bad hotel, it's just that there is nothing to write home about.
