O Hotel

819 S. Flower St., Los Angeles, California, 90017, United States

A former residential hotel, the O has been completely cleaned up and redone in a minimalist, Zen-modern style complete with an on-site restaurant and the Oasis City Spa's array of massage and body treatments. A glowing, granite-faced fireplace heats up the two-story lobby, dotted with low seating. Ergonomic work desk and chair, designer lighting, and platform beds occupy the compact rooms also outfitted with flat-screen TV; stone-floor bathrooms are found behind a space-saving pocket door. Close to L.A.'s convention center, the Nokia Theatre, and L.A. Live at downtown's southern edge, numerous new hot spots are also within walking distance. Mediterranean-influenced cuisine and tapas are the specialties of Bar & Kitchen, where guests receive a continental breakfast. Convention-goers and downtown business types will appreciate the convenience, low-key vibe, and amiable staff.

PROS

  • boutique, European city-style hotel
  • ambitious restaurant cuisine

CONS

  • boxy, almost monastic cell-like rooms and few views
  • gentrifying neighborhood means numerous homeless people, and deserted streetscapes come nightfall
