Staying at the Mayfair Hotel in Los Angeles is an absolute living nightmare. I would hardly wish such an experience upon my worst enemy (if I had one). I strongly advise everyone who values his/her peace of mind, comfort, and safety to heed the following advice: “If you have a brain in your head, do not stay at this hotel. Spend twenty dollars more, and stay at a more reliable, higher quality, and professionally managed hotel. Else, I pity the poor, unfortunate souls who ignore my warning. Seriously, it is like something straight out of a Twilight Zone horror episode.” On October 28, 2010, an arsonist set fire to the hotel ballroom sometime after midnight. That room was not in use at the time. However, one of its entrances left opened; therefore, anyone could enter unnoticed, and cause havoc. Even one of their regular security guards specifically stated that he had repeatedly informed the hotel personnel about that habitual problem, but nothing was done to correct it. Then, four days later, another fire was set in the vicinity of that same empty ballroom. The consensus seems to be these were the acts of a deranged psychopath currently staying there. The hotel management did not even care enough about the occupants to deliver official notices, concerning the fires, to the guests and tenants. Such notices might have alleviated the fears and addressed the concerns of many people. Management should have explained the circumstances of the fire, as well as indicated what additional security and safety measures were being undertaken. I do realize that management necessarily had to prioritize actions in the aftermath of the very first fire. Notwithstanding such considerations, how long does it take to draft a half page notice? However, not even after the second fire were there any official notifications! Currently, the hotel is in shambles and disarray. Cleanup equipment and portable ventilation equipment is everywhere. Carpeting has been removed from certain common areas. Wallpaper is peeling off. A lot of the walls have been gutted; you see exposed particle board, plumbing, and plastic sheathing. There is extensive water and smoke damage. It smells awful, especially the carpets. On November 2, 2010, a little after midnight, some crazy fool actually threw a television set out of a tenth-floor window! This window faced the main street; it is a wonder that no one was killed. As it turns out, that individual had gained entry to an unoccupied, guest room because its door had been left open by maintenance crews; they had been renovating that room. What is even more surprising is that there was no window lock or other mechanism to prevent someone from opening the window all the way. (Go figure!) Aside from all of that misery, the rooms are utterly deplorable. They are ever so small. The furniture is worse than Goodwill quality. The bathrooms are extremely tiny. There are bedbugs and cockroaches. Many guests and residents generally complain about the lack of professionalism and concern of the hotel personnel. Also, I think that as many as 40% of the hotel’s occupants are permanent residents. So, it is certainly not your typical hotel. And, if that is not bad enough, the neighborhood is a ghetto. Apparently, many of the bad conditions have been existence for a very long time. Well, this is one situation where apologies and promises just aren’t enough. It takes more than public relations statements; the Mayfair Hotel definitely needs a complete remodeling and re-staffing—period!

Rates are good, close to downtown, Nokia Theatre, staples center, Macy's plaza. Only downside is the area and the drunken bell captain!

My advice: Avoid this place like the plague! It should be named "The Pre-historic Mayfair Hotel". I was very disappointed and felt cheated/swindled. The only nice thing about the hotel was the lobby; it is very spacious, with high ceilings. But, the service and the rooms are really atrocious. The workers are apathetic. The rooms vary tremendously in size and quality. You might get a clean, neat and sparsely furnished/decorated room, or one that is very dingy, shoddy and dismal looking. You will most certainly share your room with bedbugs and cockroaches! The bathrooms are very, very tiny; my closets at home are larger. The area is close to downtown L.A., but it is a very SCARY and DANGEROUS neighborhood. There are many criminal types and homeless folks lurking about, so be extra careful and vigilant—especially after dark! I felt like I was in the old zombie movie "Night of the Living Dead"! ___________________________
