Staycation in LA: DTLA

The Freehand Hotel

First up on our list of hotels near AVEN is the Freehand Hotel. When you first enter the main lobby you will find that there is a chic, cheeky 70s vibe. The rooms themselves include a boho aesthetic. The Freehand is also home to one of our favorite tiki bars, Broken Shaker. It also has some great dining including The Exchange Restaurant.

Hotel Figueroa

Up next is one of our favorites on this list, Hotel Figueroa. We have talked about this hotel before but only of the restaurants. Hotel Figueroa will transport you to a mix of Morrocco and Mexico. A sleek Spanish-colonial oasis, Hotel Figueroa includes 14 stories of luxury-hotel rooms. There are few amenities here but there are three fantastic bars and restaurants to enjoy.

The Mayfair Hotel

There is also the Mayfair Hotel that is reminiscent of a European hotel. This 15-story hotel includes a roaring 20s-themed cocktail bar, live jazz, a cigar patio, and a 3rd-floor pool deck.

The Ace Hotel

Last on our list of DTLA hotels is the Ace Hotel. This hotel includes the United Artist’s Theater, a 1,600 seat Spanish-gothic theater that features shows all year round. To continue on with the music, much of the main lobby is decorated with guitars and vinyl records. It also has the Upstairs Bar with a fantastic view of downtown LA.
