Set in a private athletic club dating back to 1880, the elegant Los Angeles Athletic Club takes guests back to an era when stars like Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford graced the halls.
“Think of it as stepping into a work of film noir, and you’ll be right at home,” says Frommer’s; rooms are cozy and inviting, decorated in rich, dark hues and custom furniture.
The location is on-point for those looking to be in the midst of the downtown bustle – it’s steps from buzzing restaurants and bars, the 7th Street/Metro Center rail station and Pershing Square, and just a 20-minute walk to the Staples Center/L.A. Live and Convention Center.
Free perks include Wi-Fi and a full American breakfast buffet, but the pièce de résistance is the Olive Club membership extended to all hotel guests, allowing access to private club amenities. Get free rein of all 88,000 square feet of the four-floor athletic club, which features an Olympic lap pool, fitness classes, personal training and basketball, squash and volleyball courts.
Maximize your stay in LA with these deals on restaurants, entertainment, activities and spas.
From the press:
"The hotel’s graceful stone and woodwork are legacies of its 1912 architecture, and the building oozes history... but the best perk is free rein in L.A.’s most extensive athletic facility, including its classes and personal trainers" -- Frommer's
"Seventh Street is home to some of downtown's top restaurants" -- Los Angeles Times
