More than a new hotel in downtown Los Angeles, The Wayfarer DTLA is a new way to experience the city. It's a place for the curious and courageous to dig deeper, finding inspiration in every unscripted adventure. Our private rooms are tricked out with plush beds, lightning-fast Wi-Fi, snacks, and spirits. Or, retreat to one of our 10 shared guest rooms, designed for up to four guests. Stay out late, then hit reset in one of our cozy bunk beds, store precious cargo in a convenient in-room locker, and strategize another day of urban exploring with a whole new entourage. Discover our Rooftop perch at The Wayfarer DTLA, the gathering place for kindred spirits. Take in the night sky, expand your cocktail horizons at the bar, or stake a spot for the ultimate private event. When day turns to night, you’re invited to Lilly Rose, our basement parlor with a full bar of spirits, wine, and beer, as well as tasty bites and plenty of surprises in store. And last but not least, The Gaslighter Social Club has you covered from breakfast through dinner, serving up seasonal, sustainably sourced fare, coffee delights, and post-work drinks in a lobby setting made for mingling.

This was our second stay at The Wayfarer, and as always, we had a great time. Heesung at the front desk was super accommodating - was able to get us an early check in since we were ahead of schedule. They also have happy hours at the lobby which he let us know about! Also gave us really good tips of where to eat around the place. The rooms there are super stylish and well put together. I love the bathroom doors (mirrors) and the lighting. We'll be back again!

My friend and I had the most wonderful stay at the Wayfarer. It's in the best location and has the nicest staff, shut out to Chrissia! Definitely will be staying again and longer than one night next time. Amazing setting on the Rooftop Bar and such a cool Speakeasy downstairs.

Room Tip: Rooms are on the small side so I would upgrade to a larger Suite if you want more space.

The hotel was great, the staff was welcoming and very friendly. I traveled to LA with my two good friends and their dog and the room was a great size and accommodated the three and a half of us perfectly! The amenities were great as well, close to everything we planned to do and in a safe and secure part of downtown LA. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends and family!

To start, the check in process was quick, painless, and very informative. We had Hee Sung help throughout our entire stay, and we couldn't be happier with the experience! When we needed options on what to do or what to eat, he helped give excellent recommendations that fit our specific needs. Also, he went above and beyond and got us booked at the rooftop the morning of our Lakers game (which btw is only a 10 min walk from the hotel!). Gonna start letting my friends know that this is THE spot to book at when visiting LA-- dope rooftop, dope basement, dope staff (thanks to Mark too!)

I’m happy to have called the wayfarer my first home in LA. I spent 3 weeks at the hotel and the team has made it feel more than homy. The front desk staff is incredible! Special shout out to Hee Sung that really anticipated all my needs. The breakfast girls, Erica and Adrianna are the loveliest and allow for a great start of the day! The GM is also very present and it’s very nice to be directly in contact with the director. I can’t wait to come back and enjoy the epic rooftop!
