The Bonaventure used to have a 5-star rating back in the day. They're a 4-star now, but they've done a bit of renovation and the place looks pretty good. The rooms are a bit small, but cozy and comfortable. There are a bunch of cheesy shops on the first few floors, but once you get to your room, the view is amazing. Parking is $25 a day, which is about normal for L.A., for garage valet, but you know your car will be safe, and you can come and go 24 hrs a day. If you contact reservations directly, they'll still charge you more than 150 a night, but on priceline, you should be able to get a room for 75 or less.
