“Gorgeous Historic Hotel with so so service and rooms”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

The public areas in this hotel are fabulous. The hotel is more or less the birthplace of the Oscars and has an interesting historic hallway with plenty of photos of famous Hollywood Legends of the past. However, I have had better service at chain restaurants than we had at both the Gallery Bar and at breakfast in the restaurant. Wait staff was not friendly and definitely not very helpful. The rooms, again pretty average. Location was great for seeing all the Downtown LA sights.

Hotel has gorgeous lobby and beautiful lounge. Sleeping rooms and hallways need renovation. Tape on floors in hallway is unacceptable for this beautiful hotel. Showers in bathroom are wonderful.

I stayed here for a few nights while presenting at a tradeshow at the Convention Center. I didn't use much at the hotel, aside from my actual room. The room itself was large and had plenty of space for us to spread out. Parking at the hotel is pretty expensive, but there is an underground lot across the street at Pershing Square which is much cheaper (about $20/night). Fine place to stay for a few nights, but nothing special.

I stayed at this Historic hotel for a business meeting and saw lots of history previous guests left behind which was not cleaned. I could not believe not only the lack of cleanliness but the maintenance was not kept up. Duck tape to repair the carpets?

I just stayed at the MB for the first time for a 3 day work meeting and though it is as others noted in need for some updating, I felt it was a pleasant overall experience. My room was a suite on the 10th floor (#1077) - but was an odd layout - two small cramped bathrooms - looks like they just cut an archway between to regular rooms to create it - but it was a nice location otherwise.
Historic decor of the various common spaces and pool is really endearing, but the aerobic area could use a fan to circulate the air better and to update the equipment - it works but looks decades old. Also the AC in the whole place definitely works, in fact I was cold much of the time - it took me a while to get the knack of how to get the room temp comfortable without always going up and then down and back up...
I found the service from the staff very accommodating and would stay here again.
