Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DominicsPhotos Central location to all of Los Angeles
This location in relativity to activities and things to do is perfect. It's smack dab in the middle of downtown Los Angeles. It's ~4 miles from Dodger Stadium. Also right around the corner from Staples Center. Venice Beach and Santa Monica are ~15 miles. Universal Studios approximately 20-25 minute drive. Did I mention they have a shuttle? We took a shuttle from the Hotel straight to the Dodger Game. I'm not sure on how far it can travel, but I hadn't seen that brought up in a review yet, and not advertised on website. And it was my favorite 4 letter word. F-R-E-E. I did tip my driver though :)
But be warned, despite the wonderful location and ease of getting to many places, some people may be put off from it due to the "area" surrounding the hotel. Some will say it is rough, and may not want to walk around at night or alone. Personally, I had no issue with it as I was always with a big group of friends and you'll be safe. I also come from a background that's been exposed. You will hear many sirens walking around and other nightly activities. BUT, and I want to emphasis BUT, the windows in the rooms are amazingly good at blocking the noise. I was on the 5th level and there was a helicopter and sirens outside and we opened up the window to hear and just listen to the city and was amazed at how much/good the window blocked out all of the sounds.
Also keep in mind, all parking is nice and safe and secure so your belongings are fine in the car at night. They have a security guard and you need a key to even go in the Elevator.
Overall, my stay was very nice and I am very pleased. The front desk was courteous and great, the location was a great pinpoint to all of LA, breakfast was good enough for me, and the rooms were beautiful. If I need to stay in LA again and want to have access to some of the same spots, I'd definitely stay here again. I recommend it to all. Quite frankly, you aren't going to spend much time in your hotel room when you're in Los Angeles, so get out and enjoy yourself!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dissapntd only good for a place to sleep/park
This location is only good as a place to sleep. I stay often in the HIE, and usually look for them when I travel. This was disappointing. The breakfast was barely edible, and there were no alternatives to walk to. For a hotel that is located in such a vibrant city as LA, I couldn't enjoy it at all. Nothing within walking distance for eating. That assumes you would want to walk in this dirty and unsafe area. Vagrants and homeless right outside the doors and on every corner. Thank goodness for the underground parking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mommyfromOK Nice place and great service
The hotel is updated and everything is nice, including lobby, breakfast, and room. The pool is small and cold but my kids still played in it. The location is okay. The staff was very happy and kind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrKiko unforgettable experience all the staff was so helpful and Miss Aida is a star!
I was there with my japanese clients for 3 days and everything was perfect. very clean room, amazing staff and Miss Aida is been probably the best manager I've met in a hotel. She should teach how to deal with customer to all the front desk managers in the world! I'll be again tomorrow in LA. I could go to the Intercontinental or Crowne Plaza . But, I tell you what? I've booked again to HI Express Downtown!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dzine7 Great Value for Downtown
Although it is in Wilshire area it is clean and safe. (Two women traveling for business) Friendly staff, newly remodeled, clean and comfortable rooms and beds. Hot Tub and Fitness Room need some work but the Lobby/Breakfast Area are welcoming and breakfast is up to HIX standards.
