Fodor's Review

To keep up with the energizing of downtown this historic, five-tower, 35-story property—L.A.'s largest hotel—recently underwent a $32 million renovation of its rooms and lobby. Inside the futuristic lobby are fountains, an indoor lake, an indoor track, and 12 glass elevators. Color-coded hotel floors and numerous signs help newcomers navigate the hotel, which takes up a city block. Standard rooms are on the small side, but the suites are expansive and come with practical extras such as two-line speaker phones and ergonomic office chairs. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, many with terrific views. The hotel is a favorite with NHL teams and business travelers.

Highly overrated. Lots of fancy promo buzz words, but the reality does not equal their esteemed opinion of themselves. This morning the Dish Network was not working. The desk is too high to be able to work on it. The chairs are more like the kind you'd find in a lobby bar, and unsuitable for working. The air conditioning is weird, a water system that only provides what they want to provide. Guest has no choice about heating or cooling or maintaining

a steady temperature. The electrical outlets for one's computer are not conveniently located. In order to use my computer, had to buy an extension cord. Plugs for power are way too far away from the table that's meant to be a desk. The hotel's Restaurants are very high priced, really accessible to expense account folks only. No hot tub with the swimming pool.   One can certainly do better elsewhere, and next time i will.

Bonaventure IS A DUMP!!

The property is in bad shape, the food and service are inept and poor, the location stinks and the rooms were very bad. We were in a suite that we immediately moved - fridge on the floor, no room safe, carpet stained and gross, rotted counter top. Avoid this snake pit and stay elsewhere if you must be downtown (Biltmore or Wilshire Grand). How can Westin allow this disgrace to continue under its good name!

Some antiques are here...

This hotel was proposed for participants at a medical congress. Arrived from France at 8'50 we were first proposed a room in the middle tower at the 14th floor...Beware, this is the tower where reign vending and ice machines and they are ANTIQUES with a NOISE that we've only a few time in our travel's life... We were removed to the 1051 in a lateral tower : a small room in size for 3 but they were sold out...And this is the 1st floor of the guest

rooms and so just above the ventilation machinery of the lobby : some little noise more.. As we request a room in a upper floor come the "sentence" : as you check in late you've got the last room...Even if I was a starwood member and mail of confirmation in hand- I've reserved the 1st day of the opening reservation site WITH A CONFIRMATION of the hotel... So, nice location, but a property which has its age, old... Erik.

a comfortable base in downtown LA

I have stayed at the Westin Bonaventure a few times - having always got a bargain rate through Priceline - and have never been disappointed. The only downside is the cost of parking at $25 per day - with only valet parking available. Rooms have floor to ceiling glass and are comfortable. Heavenly beds are heavenly. Yes, the hotel is probably showing its age now, and the design was of its day, but with Priceline rate's sometimes as low as $50-$60

per night - where can you get a better room!
