Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie69 Work or Pleasure
The Bonaventure is a wonderful facility.
The architecture is unique, classic and wonderful.
The staff is up on every need.
The Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath are both comfortable and wonderful.
The location is ideal for downtown LA business.
And the restaurants in the facility and varied and very good.
I would stay here everytime I travel to LA if it's not already booked!
And I recommend it to all travelers - business and pleasure.

Thanks to the outstanding staff at the Westin Bonaventure for making a recent stressful business trip as relaxing and up eventful as possible.
The staff was outstanding in anticipating my needs and made successful recommendations for each of my meals. The room was outstanding as we'll and exceeded my expectations for comfort and ease of business.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mtimoteo No benefits as a SPG Platinum
I have stayed here several times, each time leaving unimpressed. Being a Platinum member gets you no additional benefit other than perhaps a high floor room from which you can still here traffic from. This hotel has no club lounge, breakfast voucher for Platinum members, nor suite upgrades....At least none that Ive ever received even up asking for one ahead of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baxter1 Hotel was fabulous..........
Loved everything about the hotel with 1 exception. I was attending NTA and our buses that took us to our conference, etc. were on the second floor. The elevator from the rooms did not stop on 2nd floor. You had to get off at 3 or 1 and either go up or down the escalator to 2. Otherwise, a fabulous stay.

Carpet and soft goods were soiled or stained and should be replaced. Mattress pad would not stay in place and made for a lumpy bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bart One of the best SPGs I've stayed at
Flight was delayed by several hours, so showing up at 2am (which was more like 5am on the East Coast), one needs things quick and efficient. That it was, with a personalized welcome for a Platinum, upgrade to a superb suite, and a free breakfast thrown in along with my points as it was my first time here. The room was beautiful, the breakfast amazing (worth paying a bit more for the full hot breakfast), and the staff highly efficient. Definitely will be my "Go To" hotel whenever I go to Los Angeles, either on business or with family.

if check in time is 4pm why do they give you a drink ticket and tell you to wait to 8pm to get settled.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shelli802 Dissatisfied Guest
Hello, I checked in on Saturday, February 15th--it was near midnight. There was a line of at least 50 people waiting in the registration line. People had been waiting FOR HOURS to check in. That is UNACCEPTABLE in my opinion and you have lost me as a guest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by morganjoe Great experience, with some opportunities
We had a wonderful time staying at this property. There were a few things that I might suggest that would help. We were a party of three men; myself, my 19 year old son, and a family friend. We were granted the nice upgrade to a King Tower Suite (thank you), but it would have been helpful at check in if they had asked if we needed the sleeper in the couch made up. We had service come up and do, so, but it was pretty late. One other item, the television in the living room would frequently freeze and lose its signal. The one in the bedroom was fine, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dee61 Perfect location
Was in L.A. For a conference held at the Bonaventure. It was a wonderful experience! Never had to wait for elevators. Food served at meals and breaks was above average. Fitness Center offered everything I wanted. And so many attractions - restaurants, shopping, Staples Center, Grammy Museum - an easy walk. Signature Heavenly Bed was, well, heavenly! Will make a point to stay here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KenBoise Great stay with one exception
We had a great stay. Everyone was so helpful and friendly during our stay. My only complaint which I didn't bring up at the time was that the extra blanket and sheets that we received had chocolate on them so clearly they hadn't been cleaned since the last person used them. Wasn't a big deal though. We loved the fact that there was a food court on site which we used regularly. We'll be back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Karen121 Very Disappointed
I have a few problems with the hotel. 1st and foremost $42.00 for parking in crazy. I realize it is LA. But really $42.00 to leave my car in the basement all night. The second is, at check in we were told that the restaurant served breakfast until 2 because of your late check out policy (which by the way is great). However, we went down to get breakfast after a very late night about 12:30 and were told No, by a very snotty waitress that she did not understand why they couldn't get it straight and they stopped servging at 12.

I've stayed at the Westin Bonaventure for many years as a leader in the California Teachers Association. Each time I visit I can be assured of a clean, comfortable room where I can relax after completing my work. Thank you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Minnesota11 Not worth the price charged
Walls are very thin....every time our neighbors came home, we thought they were coming into our room.
The concierge was very rude and not helpful when it came to trying to get a shuttle to the airport.
The staff does not share any information with guests....we were there for 6 days and didn't know that there were places to get food all over the hotel.
We were disappointed that there was no hot tub.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Teacher123 Hotel is great, but Brewery Restaurant isn't
The Bonaventure Hotel is great---great service, clean comfortable rooms, wonderful conference facilities---the Bonaventure Brewery is not so great. I had my second bad experience there on Saturday, Jan. 25th. The service was SO BAD that I won't go there again. The list of things that happened or didn't happen is so long I won't even bother typing it. Just suffice it to say that this restaurant is giving the Bonaventure Hotel a bad name. The restaurant needs more staff and they need to train their staff in basic customer service. Again, I'm only talking about this restaurant, not the hotel. The hotel is great.

I noticed on Sunday that the meeting room restrooms were quite smelly, Also a bracket missing from a divider. More frequent cleaning is needed in high traffic areas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shauntavious Two different nights. Two issues.
Smoke detector started chirping at 3 am. Engineering came up at 3:15 am. Had no spare batteries. Removed unit from ceiling . Awake from that point on.
Next visit. Shower handle loose and ready to come off in my hand. Shower faucet leaked and dripped. Engineering called to fix handle and dribble.
Hotel is in decline.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TravelX Not up to Westin standards
Disappointing and below my expectations for a Westin Branded hotel.
Hotel seems old and dingy. Poor signage for orientation in a hotel with a complex layout.
Conceirge did an excellent job.
Doorman couldn't take my car.
