Skating Rink
“Though this Spanish-inspired plaza has seen better days—blame it on a postmodern makeover and some unsavory fixtures—it remains Downtown’s central public space. The park hosts events throughout the year, including a Wednesday farmers’ market, summer concerts and a winter ice skating rink, but it’s worth a visit anytime for its views of the surrounding iconic 1920s- and ’30s-built edifices.”

Hotel
“One of the most iconic hotels in downtown LA, with a massive amount of history! For those historians, this was where the last sighting of the "Black Dahlia" happened, and the hallway by the elevators has been seen in TV shows and movies for decades. Just set back from the lobby is a beautiful bar, with excellent cocktails. It's a great place to stop in for a drink! ”
