I chose this hotel because it is less than a block away from an event I was attending.

The facility is nice. Everything was clean and COVID protocols were in place.

I am a Bonvoy Elite member which comes with some perks.

Pros and Cons

I checked in via the app and was pleasantly surprised when my flight landed that my room had already been assigned. Check in doesn’t normally begin until 3pm, so it was great that my room was ready at 8:30am. No waiting around.

The app features and electronic room key that is supposed to work for your room, gym, etc. Although it was supposed to, the room key did not work in the elevator. I had to go to the front desk, stand in line, check in again and get a traditional key. Not a huge deal but disappointing that the app doesn’t work.

From the room I tried to use the phone to order room service. Fail. The phone did not work for any outgoing calls. The speed dial buttons didn’t work for room service or the front desk.

The room service menu has a QR code that takes you to a menu that’s significantly different from what’s written on the menu, and the online ordering DOES NOT INCLUDE ROOM SERVICE. Who ever heard of a room service menu that does allow for room service!

I use the app and my cell phone to call the front desk. They agree to connect me to Room Service. Apparently there is room service but not for the menu they have in the room. Confusing.

I explained the phone in my room didn’t work. Instead of connecting me they insist on having room service call me on the phone in my room.

They call. The phone disconnects after 20 seconds. They call back. Call disconnects again. This happened 7x but finally they have my full order. They told me 20 minutes. The food arrived an hour later.

Food was good. Expensive but good.

Not a terrible stay but definitely some technical things that need to be fixed.

The hotel is old and beautiful if you are able to walk and move around upright but as a wheelchair user it was horrendous.

The hotel is situated on a very steep graded hill on all sides with rough stone textured slopes very difficult for wheelchairs to grasp. The one level side of the hotel and listed as the address on the website is closed so you are forced to traverse the hills. Once inside the rock and brick decor continues throughout the entire hotel.

There were a dozen electrical outlets in the room but only 1 worked so I had to keep plugging and unplugging to use my laptop and powerchair. I had to call for a microwave and refrigerator because they had been removed and once they were replaced had no place to be plugged in?

The accessible room was large and very accessible. The room door is very heavy, so it was difficult to enter and exit by myself.

The staff was superb and very helpful from letting me in and out of my room to helping retrieve my powerchair rental.

The breakfast each morning was hot and delicious.

Overall, I would have definitely rated higher if the hotel was more wheelchair friendly, but since it is not, I cannot rate it higher.

Room tip: Find a more wheelchair and mobility challenged friendly location if this is a concern for you.

I am a Marriott Ambassador Elite member and travel around the world at least 100+ nights a year. Rarely leave any TA review but I need to do this one. Francisco, the FO night manager, reached out to me by a welcome letter. I told him my wife was not feeling well. What happened next was a very nice suite upgrade, hand written note, snacks etc placed in the room ahead of my stay. It was truly a 5-star service where you will only enjoy by spending $600+/night at 5-star luxury hotels. It was such a pleasure to experience that level of service at a Westin, particularly during the tough Covid time. Even though most of the hotels' focus has been saving on costs. The fact that this hotel still cares no matter how much guests are paying for a room is really amazing. Kudos to the ops team at Westin Bonaventure. I will definitely stay here for the future ALIS events downtown.

The room is of great size. Breakfast buffet has lot of selections and quality of food was excellent. Bed was very comfortable and the AC works perfectly.

Really appreciate your time making all of this happen Francisco. Yu Z.

Great location to walk to Grand Central Market, or catch the transit and explore Downtown, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Beverly Hills and greater LA. Thanks Luis for the great room high up with a great view of the city.

In this pandemic world, it is gratifying to a traveler to stay in a hotel where you feel safe. This hotel is spacious with an atrium lobby and lots of open spaces conducive to social distancing. All the staff are professionals and very helpful.
The rooms are spacious, the elevators and walkways are lit and not cramped. I enjoyed my 3 night stay in this hotel and will surely come back again.
The architecture of this hotel is so beautifully thought out.
