i was in LA for a week visit - first I stayed at the Sofitel, which was a superb hotel. Then I went to Las Vegas and stayed at Mandalay Bay - which was also excellent. Finally, for my last two nites in LA I made a mistake and stayed at the Luxe Summit - it was a dump, everything was old and had the old vintage garage sale smell. Don't stay unless you enjoy a typical Marriott.
Pros: inexpensive, bel air, sunset blvd
Cons: old, run down, smells, insects
