    Historical Traveler Reviews Metro Plaza Hotel Los Angeles

    Bargain hotel with great location

    from

    This past October my husband and I stopped in LA between legs of an Amtrak trip from Chicago to San Diego. We made a reservation at the Days Inn Downtown. This modestly-priced hotel is on the edge of Chinatown, across the street from Union Station. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel offered a "continental breakfast" but we preferred to eat our breakfast at Original Philippe's, just a block away. Olvera Street is a short block away in the opposite direction. There was no coffee maker in the room, but there were three telephones, one of them in the bathroom.

    Great Value

    from

    Stayed at the Days Inn Downtown Los Angeles for one night to see a concert at Dodger Stadium. Clean room, friendly staff, would stay again

    Good comfortable Motel - Good Location

    from

    The Rooms are far above Motel average - spacious, newly equipped and in good condition. They also have a fridge, which isnt normal for a Motel.

    The location is good, just adjacent to the city center.

    There are some problems to get a space in the parking lot; often very busy - but we always managed to get a spot.

    Breakfast is also above average, staff is friendly.

    Would stay there again.

    Location suited our needs

    from

    We stayed at this hotel especially to go to Olvera Street. We booked a hire car which we picked up at Union Station which is right across the road from the hotel. We arrived after a 14 hour flight and where able to book straight in at 10.00am which was appreciated.

    We booked over the internet on the Days Inn site my biggest praise is that they only charged us for 1 nights accommodation and they could have charged us for 2 nights.

    Our room was clean and tidy staff where good. We found a great Thai restaurant just to the rear of the hotel but I wouldnt go walking around this location a night. We managed to get a pizza delivered to the hotel in the evening no problems!

    Location and Price!

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Days Inn and were quite pleased. The location is strategic. Olvera Street is a short walk away, Phillipes is just down the block, Chinatown and Union Terminal are a short walk away. We didn't have a car, but parking in the hotel garage was $3 a day. Buses are easy to catch right outside the hotel or at Union Station (which has car rental counters too).

    The interior of the hotel seemed quite clean and well maintained. We had no problems with check-in or check-out. The other guests I saw were young couples with children, older Asian and Hispanic couples, and a few Union Station Amtrack employees on a layover. The room was typical suburban hotel size. There was a refrigerator but no in-room coffee maker or ironing board. That was more than compensated for in my opinion by the free wireless access. More hotels should provide that service. I'd easily trade the lame bread and cereal breakfast for wireless.

    Like most major urban centers in the US, downtown LA has the usual cast of street people. The neighborhood after dark was gritty, but I don't think it was sketchy. Ceasar Chavez, Alameda, and Main are all major streets with plenty of traffic and streetlights. There's a gas station directly across the street that has an ATM.

    Good food is easy to come by within walking distance. Out the back door and across the street is an excellent restaurant called "Asian Noodles" that serves "Manila fusion" cusine. Olvera street can fill two people full of fantastic authentic Mexican food for under $10. Phillipes, which we did not try, is widely regarded as a Los Angeles fixture.

    The hotel is a perfect place for those with business in the garment district. The D Dash from the Union Station will drop you off right at the California Mart for $0.25 one way. Taxis are easy to obtain; it's about 20 minutes to the airport (in the middle of the day) and the rate from downtown to LAX is fixed at about $40.

    If business brings us back to downtown LA, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

    I would never stay here!

    from

    We were told through the days inn reservation center one price and another through the hotel lobby attendent. when I told him, he said it was not his policy to do anything about it and I would have to call the reservation center back. When I talked to them it was confirmed I was correct, yet the lobby attendent refused to listen, even when he talked to the reservation agent. I then proceded to cancel the reservation, however was told I could not, per the lobby attendent did not cancel reservations. I finally got this resolved, however I would not ever stay at this hotel. If you do, make sure the front desk quotes you the same price before you decide to check in.

    Great budget choice

    from

    The room was very clean and the staff friendly. Covenient location to downtown, Chinatown, and best of all, Union Station, thus to all of L.A. Highly recommended for those on a budget.

    Budget Best!

    from

    Spent one night in LA and this was perfect! Right next to an In-and-Out Burger and about 1.5 block walk from Hollywood & Highland for Mann's Theatre and Walk of Fame (we were lucky enough to see a movie premiere!). Traveling with my teenage sisters and felt safe at this hotel. Parking is free!! You are on Sunset Blvd so if you just keep driving past the hotel you see all the cool clubs and celeb spots. Will stay here again.

    Handy location

    from

    okay if you want to catch train at union station....had trouble getting the front desk to understand english...hotel quite comfotrable but pretty old and wouldnt want to wonder to far at night

    Pleasant enough big city hotel

    from

    Comfortable hotel right across from Union Station and the Pueblo, near Chinatown. Philippe's right up the street is a Los Angeles institution and deserves to be. The breakfasts, French Dip sandwiches and atmosphere are fantastic. Hotel has secure parking as the area in general is not great at night. Convenient for downtown and the station.

    Bye Miami but HELLO LA!
    As soon as we checked in we had to go to Warner Bros as we had a tour at 4pm. I knew how I wanted to get there with bus numbers, subway etc, I just needed a point in the right direction. Well that lead to 4 different people giving us four different in directions and I was only going to take my own way anyway. It took us …

    ... through horrendous traffic to get to a bike shop - to refix Matt's bike that wasn't fixed properly in Flagstaff - then walked for miles to find a fricking bar that served beer past dozens of beauty salons, organic tea cafés and yoga shops. Exhaustingly **** day, but great beer, pizza and wine when we finally found somewhere to eat. Friday 30th October. Santa Monica to Los Angeles Airport Hotel. California mugs us off again. Having paid for a free breakfast with our room, we head ...

Caught a taxi back to our room our taxi driver was great and chatted to us our hole way home ( first one we have had that has). Got back to our room we were both pretty ...

    ... We happened to have watched 21Jump Street on the flight the night before - so watching 22 Jump Street seemed only natural. After movie lunch at Big City Grill. We shoved our faces into some amazing greasy red-meat laden plates that we had sorely missed. Then more beach cruising and people watching. Finally returned the car and hit the airport for our 10pm flight (which was delayed until 11pm). Flew/slept through ...
