These redone and recently relaunched downtown L.A. hotels will take you to the Jazz Age and back again
AUGUST 2018 – CHRISTOPHER REYNOLDS – LA TIMES
The Hotel Figueroa and the Mayfair Hotel, both built in 1926 in downtown Los Angeles, have been revived this year (and unveiled this month). Step inside and you’ll find history half-disguised. The Figueroa, a born-again Spanish Colonial specimen at Figueroa and 9th streets, has a YWCA connection that might surprise anyone who saw the place a decade ago in its “Casablanca” mode.
