Rated 5 out of 5 by PalAl Awesome hotel
My wife and I stayed here during the ACN International event and we were feted to a kind and caring staff and wonderful accommodations. The staff really knows how to take care of a large crowd. Westin is always our first choice and the bed is the closest we can come to our select comfort back home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mommy0212 Lovely place to stay
The rooms at the hotel were very nice. We were on the 29th floor and the view was spectacular. The gentleman who helped us at the reception desk helped to find us a wonderful room so we would enjoy our weekend stay. I want to thank everyone for their great hospitality and wonderful service!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dreamworks Nice Hotel in Downtown
This hotel is an icon in LA. It's been seen in many movies, mostly because of its unique elevators which are on the outside of the building. The hotel though is in downtown, which means that there's not much around in the evening for food or culture. I'll stay here again.
Great fitness center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dustin The hotel has great facility
The location is excellent, very convenient to access main public transportation and highway. Hotel stuff is very professional, fitness and pool facility are great. Only a little bit dissatisfaction is lack of high quality restaurants in the hotel though there are a lot of options at food court

Rated 5 out of 5 by gwoman almost perfect
I loved this hotel until almost the last day of my 4 day stay. On Thursday morning I had to take a cold shower due to a water leak on the 24th floor. The day of my departure I wanted room service breakfast and no one picked up my ticket hanging outside the door so I did not receive breakfast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynx05 Quick Check-in, Knowledgeable staff
I was in town early and there was no issue getting me into a room asap. I even received a platinum upgrade which only sweetened the deal. Since I was new to the area, the young woman checking me in gave me succinct instructions and a map that got me to my work site in 5 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1businesstraveler Don't want to stay anywhere else
This is my home away from home when I'm in downtown LA and I don't care to stay anywhere else. It's clean, convenient, and updated. I love the white tea aloe products provided in the bathroom, and no wimpy shower head here! The heavenly bed lives up to it's name.
Fabulous fitness center! Much nicer than other hotel fitness centers, since it has an "open" feel. I don't like working out in a secluded room as a lot of other hotels' fitness centers feel.
It would be nice to have free WiFi in the guest rooms, but that's not the case yet.
I did have an issue with a slow draining tub and it was fixed by the time I got back to my room. The only other con was that I set the morning paper on the counter by the TV to read later in the day and it was gone when I got back to my room. No big deal. Housekeeping must have thought it was garbage.
I've stayed at other hotels in the area (only when I can't get a room as the Westin) and none have measured up or even come close. This is definitely where I want to be!

Rated 3 out of 5 Good & Bad
Facility and the surrounding shopping/restaurants- Great character!
Loved the view from the tower suite.
Even two star hotels don't charge for wifi- what is wrong with you.
Can't get a mid sized SUV into your parking garage & extra charge to park in oversize parking- sad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by temjeito Filthy/broken toilet, terrible Internet, slow response
I stayed here for four nights while on a business trip.
When I arrived, although the toilet paper rolls had been folded into the strange origami points that are supposed to indicate your bathroom has been cleaned, the toilet seat was FILTHY--covered in grime, dried urine, pub ic* hairs, and who knows what else. I called down immediately to ask for someone to come up and clean the toilet, and it took over an hour for someone to come up and do that.
*(I have to spell it this way, because the review system flags this word as "inappropriate language" -- apparently it is OK to leave them on my toilet seat, but not to say the word in a review)
The following day, the toilet would not flush. Again, it took over an hour for them to send an engineer to fix the toilet.
Throughout my stay, the Internet connection--which was essential to me for keeping in touch with the office--kept failing, and the "helpdesk" number they provided for Internet customer service just kept me on hold and never actually picked up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by justaguy69 Wonderful experience
the staff was helpful from check in to check out. Had someone jump in front of the line at check in and the staff was quick to let them know they needed to wait their turn. Also saw them deal with a belligerent man. calmed him down and got him sorted out.

We had a fabulous stay food was good in dinning room, Bell captain was fantastic on geting us drivers The lemo driver was the same as taking a cab and he took me everywhere I wanted to go and I felt very very safe with him. It is nice to feel safe in a large city.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sophia888 Did not meet my expectation on Westin Brand
Some staff are not friendly, room does not have enough outlet to plug muti cell phone, etc. Bath tab fixture keep fall off, shower head face out side, and wet the floor each time. When encounter issues, no one is eager to help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by John Hotel is too old
This hotel is just too old and should not have the Westin flag. Starwood should downgrade the flag. My room smelled like mildew. The airconditioner is very loud. The shower water temp was lukewarm at best. the location is great but the quality of the facility is lacking.

The Westin Bonaventure was the location of a conference I attended. The staff was outstanding and the facilities were ideal, both for the conference and also for the amenities. The work-out area was well maintained. The conference rate was the best I have experieced!

This is a very nice hotel with plenty of amenities. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is kept clean and very well organized. I've come to this hotel every year for the last 5 years and not yet had a bad experience.

I've stayed at the hotel many times. This experience would be a 1-star. Poor service. Multiple calls to the front desk to get a wake up call. Multiple calls to the garage to have my car brought up, never answered. I finally went down to the garage. You can do better.

Loved our stay! Every single staff person was most accommodating and pleasant! The hotel can add 'heavenly staff' to their marketing...they were perfect in every way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StephenS Good business hotel with only 1 hiccup
All in all a great hotel, I have stayed many times....BUT the wireless internet connection needs some serious upgrading. Large variance in wireless connectivity bewteeen rooms and even then the speeds are slow enough that Skype or GoToMeeting may not function well.

This hotel is beautiful and the views all around it are great as well. This was by far the best hotel I've stayed at. The best part about it is the staff- they are incredibly helpful and friendly and went the extra mile to ensure that my experience was memorable.

When I checked in the phone and the clock were not working - it was fixed immediately.
Later that day the safe failed - response was great and was fixed within the hour. Many thanks!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GEM1129 Well Located with Many Features
The Westin was well located in downtown LA with a number of restaurants and shopping nearby. The restaurants located in the hotel were convenient and of good quality. We had two rooms, a double and a king. While both were well appointed, the king was quite small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gan46 Great service
The doorman who was there on check-in was extremely helpful in telling of attractions in the area plus on a subsequent day he told us how to get to several different restaurants.
It is too bad that the two Japanese restaurants that had been the hotel had closed.

What a super hotel, the views and rooms are not to be missed. Enjoy the SPG treatment in a premeir location at a great price. I felt like a movie star but didn't have to pay like one. Not to miss the rooftop bar that rotates with a fabulous view of downtown LA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maggie5706 Wonderful room and location
Too many unnecessary disturbances, for example:
Got phone call from room service early morning (8:00 am) ask "how is your breakfast?"
In fact, I didn't order breakfast.
Half an hour later (8:30 am), room service knocked my door ask " do you check out today?"
