    I really love this boutique hotel located in the heart of Downtown LA. It was recently renovated and has an urban chic feel. It is clean, modern but not so modern that it feels impersonal. The restaurant/bar is full of trendsters but very cool with an easy feel. I can't wait to go back!

    This is a review for the Bar & Kitchen restaurant in this hotel.

    Eats: Parmesan Truffle Tots, Warm Spicy Feta, Spicy Korean Style Wings
    Event: Happy Hour

    Bar & Kitchen is located in super swanky O Hotel. Living less than a block away from here made me want to try it as I always see patrons inside. The ambiance is a bit romanticy with dim lighting and a fireplace. All restaurant tables were reserved or occupied so we found a nice spot on the couch by the fire. The waiter promptly moved 2 small tables to us for our pending food. It was a perfect cozy set up, complete with comfy love seat couch. The parmesan truffle tots were by far the best I've tasted. Every bite was filled with that yummy truffle flavor. The warm spicy feta was ok with 2 tiny pieces of bread grilled bread, but atleast the feta was good tasting. The spicy korean style wings were pretty disappointing and looked like they came off a food-deprived chicken. The flavor was spicy to say the least, but they were not appealing to look at, at all. I'd come back to try the pork belly tacos and will definitely get the parmesan truffle tots again.

    This upscale trendy hotel, very much in the heart of Downtown LA, is definitely for the urban traveler. A block from 7th Street metro hub, it is also near hipster restaurants, Disney Hall, MOCA, LA Live, the jewelry mart… and plenty of bums. It’s safe enough, but be smart and aware of your surroundings – especially at night. The O offers no hotel parking, but there is a private pay lot next door and several others around. There’s an inviting restaurant and kitchen just off the lobby, featuring an exposed brick wall from the original 1925 structure. All rooms but the “Flower Kings” have windows that overlook grey cinderblock walls. (If I were them, I would have commissioned a local artist to paint a colorful mural on my neighbor’s walls.) The Flower Kings, by contrast, are somewhat larger, and look out on the bustle and excitement of, you guessed it, Flower Street. These rooms come at a price, however, as they are both more expensive, and also louder, with the street noise plainly audible.

    The O may stand for the former Orchid Hotel, but I say, O yeah! This might be the ideal boutique hotel -- chic and sleek yet warm and friendly, from the Asian-like façade to an attractive fireplace feature lights up the lobby as well as a friendly desk. Tasteful rooms may be small but they’re designed with panache. The bath has beautiful bowl sinks and Bee Kind dispensers. High-end design, plush towels and robes, iPod docs, and super comfortable beds with lux linens make up for the view of a brick wall behind billowy curtains. The Bar and Kitchen restaurant was voted the best hotel restaurant in town for its distinctive dishes (i.e.: Shrimp and Grits with Spanish Chorizo Ragout) and drinks. An optional $12/day charge includes a perks package with a newspaper, bottled water, continental breakfast, and membership to Gold’s Gym as well as WiFi. Considering chain hotels often charge $10 for Internet, this is worth it. Located in L.A.’s financial district, downtowns attractions are within walking distance.

    It used to be that downtown lodging in L.A. meant one of two things: mega-sized business hotels and down-and-out motels. Then the Standard opened 10 years ago and a new category was born: the hip, party hotel. The O is in its own class. With only 67 rooms, it fits the boutique bill, but it also has a legit cocktail and food program, care of Bar + Kitchen, located off the lobby.

    The rooms are fairly compact, but the story goes that the wealthy, eccentric owner wanted a place that was European in style. Evidently, he also discovered the proprietary mattresses on a trip to Turkey, and said he had to have them. Splurge on a Flower King room, which have larger beds and cool street views, and are currently being outfitted with Google TVs (another one of the owner’s decrees). There’s no parking onsite, but many public lots surround the hotel. And the metro is only one block away.

    This is a great boutique style hotel that is located very well in downtown Los Angeles. The lobby is modern and features an interesting fireplace with a comfortable seating area for meeting friends. There is an on site restaurant that has recently received an excellent recommendation from the L.A. Weekly food critics and they offer room service.

    On the way up to see a room we briefly spoke with one of the hotel patrons and she raved about how comfortable the beds are. The rooms are quiet and very nicely done. The bathrooms very modern and well designed. The rooms have ipod docks, small fridge and Wolfgang Puck coffee.

    They offer a free breakfast with your stay as well as entry to Gold's Gym next door for those of you that would like to stay fit as you travel. They also offer in room spa treatments. Wifi is available for free in the lobby.

    Terrific location with easy access to restaurants, the metro, music center and museums. I would highly recommend staying here and found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and outgoing.
