Excellent classic hotel with a great look
The hotel decor and room decor are really cool with that vintage look. It has great ambiance. The restaurants in the hotel were great too. The location is good, but a little touristy. And it is not close to the airport, which is a bit of a downside. But otherwise, you are in a good central location for doing lots of things in LA. I also enjoyed hanging out by the pool, where they have drinks and food to order. You can walk to Runyon Canyon (about 10-15 min walk) for some great city views - I definitely recommend that. The only main downside is that it's basically like staying in the Times Square of LA - very touristy outside. As a result, I found it hard to find a good restaurant within walking distance. The restaurants in the hotel are probably your best bet unless you want to drive further (which I also recommend, since LA has lots of great restaurants elsewhere).
