Quirky tourist accommodation situated right by the Nokia Theater and Staples Center
Located just seconds away from the Nokia Theater, Staples Center, and the Grammy Museum, the Figueroa Hotel Los Angeles can be found at the pulsating heart of L.A.s extravagant and glitzy entertainment district. With concerts and sporting events held just across the road, guests have every chance of bumping into any of Hollywoods A-listers.
The Figueroa takes its influence from old Moroccan habitats, featuring plenty of rustic colors, artistic fabrics and rugs, and elegant furnishings. Each of the 287 guestrooms is spacious and well-designed. Large beds feature ornate iron headboards, and exquisite linens, whilst comfy chairs and sofas as well as small tables add a homely feel to a stay.
A number of specialized suites provide an extravagant feel akin to an Arabian Nights tale. The hotel also features a swimming pool and a mosaic tiled Jacuzzi. An in-house restaurant and bar offers wining and dining options should guests not wish to venture onto the busy streets of Downtown Los Angeles where restaurants and bars aplenty can be found.
But regardless of its thematic styles, the hotels best attribute is its location.
The nearby Staples Center is a state-of-the-art multi-purpose arena that hosts concerts, exhibitions, and sporting events, including the world-renowned Los Angeles Lakers basketball team, as well as their slightly lesser known competitors, the Los Angeles Clippers. The NHLs Kings and WNBAs Sparks also call the building home.
L.A. Live and the Nokia Theater also host musical events, meaning that guests at the Figueroa Hotel Los Angeles will never be short of an event to attend.
For business travelers, the Los Angeles Convention Center is just down the street whilst I-10 and I-110 offer access routes around the Greater Los Angeles area.
Both Southwestern University and the University of Southern California (USC) have campuses conveniently located close to the hotel, making the property an ideally placed budget accommodation for those visiting college friends and family or thinking of attending either of these institutes.
Baseball fans can find the famous Dodger Stadium just two miles along the freeway, again making the hotel a convenient and economic stopover point.
International and domestic tourists hoping to visit the glitz and glamor of Hollywood will find it about five miles away. Many of the attractions on offer in this particular part of L.A. have become unforgettable icons of the city. The world-famous Hollywood sign and the Hollywood Hills is a good place to start your tour, before moving along to the likes of Hollywood Boulevard, home to the famous Walk of Fame, Sunset Strip, Universal Studios, the Hollywood Bowl, and Manns Chinese Theatre.
Guests willing to travel a little further can make their way to those famous Pacific beaches, including Malibu, Venice Beach, and Santa Monica. The fine sands and excellent surf make these popular hotspots as much with locals as visitors.
Guests at the Figueroa Hotel Los Angeles may also enjoy a visit to Disneyland in neighboring Orange County, world-famous Malibu, exclusive Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive, or even a trip along the Pacific Coastal Highway which offers some fantastic scenery as it heads north towards San Francisco.
