WELCOME TO HOTEL FIGUEROA
At Hotel Figueroa, we believe in hospitality as an art form. Since our early days as one of the only hotels open to solo female travelers, we have been a haven for trailblazers.
The Fig is a place to get inspired and stay inspired. Whether that means viewing the latest lobby exhibition, driving in for a film, or trading stories with a fellow creator in front of the fireplace, we strive to brighten your experience with the spark of connection.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable.

Hotel Figueroa opened in 1926 as an exclusive women’s hostelry owned by the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA). According to an article by the Los Angeles Times, the hotel was “financed, built and operated by and for femininity,” and served as a safe haven for solo women travelers. The hotel’s first general manager, Maude Bouldin, was the first female general manager of any hotel in America.
Throughout the decades, the hotel was at the center of local, national, and global cultural events. It continued to be a special place for women in business and social clubs, as well as a bastion of art, politics, and intellectualism. Art exhibitions, musical performances, political press conferences, and hosted talks by world travelers were all part of the dynamic social scene at Hotel Figueroa. Activists gave speeches decrying racism, sexism, and other social issues against this backdrop of progress.
In the 1950s, the hotel was remodelled and modernized. This included bathrooms added to every guest room, and a large pool built where the YWCA once stood.
In 1978, Uno Thimansson purchased the hotel, and would go on to operate it for the next 36 years, transforming the entire property into a Moroccan-themed attraction. Under his leadership, The Fig served as an affordable boutique hotel for tourists—and a unique hangout for locals.
In 2016, Downtown LA’s thriving arts, dining, and business scene inspired a comprehensive revitalization. This sympathetic refresh aimed to restore the hotel back to its original Spanish Colonial roots while maintaining its strong architectural elements.
Today, Hotel Figueroa blends both old and new, offering a space that is respectful of where it came from and yet undoubtedly contemporary—a property that is both inspired by its own history and inspiring to those who walk its halls.
