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.
Downtown LA is very urban and safe. I have lived in and worked in downtown LA for many years and feel very safe living and working here.
There are many restaurants (Baco Mercat, Bar Ama, 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.
I do allow for photo shoots in the apartment and I will offer a discount price for that depending on how you want to shoot the apartment. Filming and parties are prohibited.
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.
Other Things to Note
For guests that are sensitive to noise, I do provide earplugs and a white noise machine to block out noise. Like in any downtown area, street noise can be a common occurrence.
NO SMOKING INSIDE THE APARTMENT.
The apartment is located in a very quiet building. No loud music, no smoking, no drugs, and no additional guests are allowed in the apartment. Please be respectful of my neighbors. Please try to keep my place as clean as you originally found it.
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.
Veronica's place was nice, as expected. The location is perfect, as I fell in love with DTLA on this very short trip. Being able to walk to so many fantastic bars, restaurants, markets, etc. was great - DTLA really feels like Manhattan, without the frenetic pace and massive crowds. The apartment itself met all my needs well. As others have commented, the street noise can get loud, so I was pleasantly surprised by how well the white noise machine was able to neutralize a good bit of that. Just as important as all that, Veronica's communication with me was lightning fast. Anytime I emailed or texted, she would get back to me within minutes. I will definitely stay here again.
Veronica's place was really nice and cozy. She has yummy snacks and a Keurig coffee maker. The noise from the outside was a bit intense because of the large windows, but she provides ear plugs and a noise maker which helped us get a good night's sleep. I would recommend staying with her!
Everything was as described. Centrally located to everything in the city. Veronica wasnt available to meet me during my check in time, but she easily adjusted and had a friend of hers meet me right at the agreed time. No issues with anything at her apartment. Her apartment was as described, and everything was clean and neat in appearance. The city noises were expected, but she did provide ear plugs and white noise machine to limit them. Thanks for the great customer service. Look forward in staying here again.
Nice homely place with enough water, soft drinks and snacks provided for.
Couldn't have asked for more for our stay at LA downtown.
Veronica was very helpful as a host and ensured that we did not have any concerns during our stay.
Thanks for an easy and lovely stay. The place was immaculate and everything as described.
Amazing location right in the middle of downtown Los Angeles! Everything was walking distance. Host was very accommodating and very organized! The apartment was so lovely and clean!! Had a great stay and will be going back again forsure.
The elegant loft unit is set within an older industrial designer styled building, which offers a level of security that guarantees a safe stay. It is very tastefully decorated with a contemporary style, that reflects an exquisite touch of class.
I was warmly greeted by the hostess [Veronica], and she provided me with the key and security access fob.
When I entered, I walked into a spacious loft that offered a variety of amenities to enjoy, [from complementary beverages and snacks to a large wall mounted HDTV -with cable access, as well as WiFi connectivity, for laptops, and, or mobile devices], which made for an enjoyable stay.
I highly recommend the unit for anyone looking for a nice change of pace from the standard bed and bathroom offered by the chain hotels/motels - you'll be glad you made the choice to invest in the use of these accommodations.

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.
