Interaction with Guests
Minimal. I'm here to check guests in and out of the apartment. I'm available via cell phone if any questions or concerns come up during the stay.
Honestly, my neighborhood is very urban and safe. I have lived in and worked in downtown LA for many years and feel very safe living here.
There are many restaurants (Gorbals, Baco Mercat, Pete's, Cole's, Bottega Louie), bars (Down N Out, The Varnish, 7 Grand, Crocker Club), lounges (The Association, Perch, The Standard), and coffee shops (Starbucks, of course, Syrup Desserts, Cafe Nine, Tierra Mia) within walking distance. A lot of filming locations--you will most likely come across a film crew while here.
LA Convention Center is 1.4 miles away from the apartment and is easy to get to walking (if you enjoy very long walks!), via car, or public transit. The Westin Bonaventure is 0.6 miles away and within walking distance.
My apartment is 2 blocks away from the Red Line and Pershing Square subway train station. There are also a lot of bus stops around the neighborhood. Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar are also available if guests need a cheaper alternative to taking a cab.
NO SMOKING INSIDE THE APARTMENT.

FRONT DESK SECURITY: Front desk security are not responsible for this Air BnB listing in any way. Please do not bother them. When checking-in, please contact me directly by calling, texting, or sending a message via Air BnB. I will come downstairs to greet you and take you up to the apartment. Front desk security are not involved in checking-out either. Do not ask them to watch for your luggage or belongings. They are not responsible to watch over your stuff.
Please do not move the furniture around in any part of the apartment. Do not hang wet towels or clothing on any of the furniture. There is rack space in the bathroom for wet towels. There are also paid dryers on the same floor of the apartment to use.
Do NOT use paint anywhere inside the apartment. Paint leaves permanent damage and items that are damaged will be replaced.
Please inform me of your estimated time of arrival 24 hours before checking in. This allows me to make sure that I'm at home and that the apartment is ready for your arrival. Also, I do work outside of home and knowing when you will get here allows me to maximize my work hours. If you are booking and checking in the same day, this is obviously a different situation and we will communicate check-in times and if my place will best accommodate you.
Towels and beddings are not giveaways so please do not take them. They are for future guests.
The kitchen is free to use as you please to store food in the fridge, cook, and to eat. You can also cook using my cookware. If you cook in the kitchen, please clean up after yourself. Please wipe away any spills and wash any dishes you use or put them in the dishwasher. Before checking out, please throw away any leftover food you left in the fridge. You are welcome to use water from the pitcher as well as any condiments in the fridge and the cabinets.
If you are the last person in the apartment, please turn off all lights, coffee maker, and the AC to conserve electricity. Also please lock the door when you are leaving.
If a liquid spill of any sort occurs on the floors, please clean it immediately to prevent water damage. A roll of paper towels is in the kitchen and in the storage closet to clean up spills. If the spill was the result of the toilet overflowing, please notify me--even if that means waking me up--or if I'm not home, please use paper towels to take care of the spill as much as you can before I can take care of it myself.
Checking out: Check-out is at 11:00 AM, which means that you and your luggage is out of the apartment no later than 11:00 AM. If I don't have someone checking-in the next day, I can do a later check-out but this is on a case-by-case basis. If you want a later check-out, please ask in advance and I will try to accommodate you.
If you ruin bedding linens with stains (blood, grease, etc), you will be charged to replace them. Cost for replacing linens runs from $10-100 depending on what was ruined. Please do not eat or drink in the bed. If you are bleeding, please use tissues or towels.
Great experience! The apartment is very centrally located, just a few blocks away from Grand Central Market and a number of wonderful restaurants and bars. Veronica is great too. She was able to arrange a contact for us despite being out of town when we arrived. Directions for making the most of the apartment and area were very clear.
Veronica was a good host, check in went smoothly and she had snacks and drinks aplenty in the apartment. I enjoyed my stay there and would recommend it to anyone staying in LA!
This was the perfect base for a stay in downtown LA: walking distance to a host of restaurants, etc., and close to useful stores. Veronica's apartment is immaculate, and thoughtfully prepared for guests. Communication was prompt and clear – I look forward to visiting again in the near future.
I absolutely loved my stay at this place! The apartment was beautiful. It looks just as it does in the photos. Veronica was a very nice host. She met us on time and gave us all the information we needed. She also made it easy to contact her if we had any additional questions during our stay. The apartment is also very well-maintained. There is shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the shower, some snacks in the kitchen, as well as some beverages. The apartment is walking distance from many bars and restaurants in downtown LA. This was a really great location for a weekend getaway. I definitely recommend it!
Veronica was a wonderful host! Our stay was less than 24 hours, but the loft had every amenity that we needed. Communication was never and issue. The building is beautifully decorated, in a great location, and the overnight parking garage that she suggested was so cheap! I also needed to be at the LA Convention Center that afternoon which was a long walk but doable! There is the obvious street noise during the night, but the white noise machine provided is very helpful. We were very pleased with our stay, and I would highly recommend this space to others!
My stay at Veronica's downtown apartment was exactly what I was looking for! After a long day at a work convention I needed a place to relax and get ready before I met up with some friends. The place was stocked with necessities and very clean. The apartment complex was safe and in the middle of all the action. Thanks Veronica for being so flexible with your schedule to meet me as well! :)

Native Los Angeles resident now living in downtown LA. I love living in downtown! I have 2 cats. I just graduated with my PhD in Industrial/Organizational psychology and I work in downtown. I'm an amateur chef and I love cooking. I also love to travel and plan to do more traveling now that I'm done with graduate school. Recently I have gone to London (stayed there through Air BnB, of course!) and I'm planning on going to San Francisco, Vancouver, and Copenhagen this year.
