Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Upscale hotel popular with business travelers and concert-goers 

Luxe City Center Hotel occupies a large multi-story building on a busy downtown LA street. The lobby gets lots of light thanks to large windows, and the interiors are done up in a minimalist style in cool tones of gray and beige. That said, the decor is stark and sterile and very similar to other business hotels, with contemporary white sofas and black high-backed armchairs arranged on a black-and-white. Andy Warhol prints decorate the public spaces, adding color to the otherwise lackluster interiors. The majority of the guests here are business travelers, but the hotel does also get guests attending concerts at the L.A. Live and Staples Center concert venues, both of which are just down the street. It also attracts dog owners, as dogs stay for free, and special canine-friendly packages are available.
