About the property

Walk To Staples,LA Live!,Conv.Cntr.,MICROSOFT Square, Cafes, Bars, Movies, METRO

The Luxurious LUMA EXECUTIVE LOFT in the LUMA building - a new luxury condo/loft in the heart of the city. An easy walk to Staples Center, LA Live!, MICROSOFT Square, the METRO, and the Los Angeles Convention Center - where you will enjoy many great restaurants, movie theaters, sporting events, live concerts, the Grammy Museum, ESPN Zone, the MICROSOFT Theater and the combined JB Marriott / Ritz Carlton Residences property. There's a wonderful danish bakery right outside the front door as well as Starbucks right around the corner, and restaurants in all directions. AEG, (the sports & entertainment giant) has its new world headquarters right across the street in the historic Desmond building. You can walk to the Financial or Fashion District, the Historic Core, or hop the METRO to Hollywood/Universal Studios or the Long Beach Aquarium. A car is nice to have, but not necessary to get you here... You can take the flyaway bus from LAX to Union Station and then either the METRO line or a short taxi ride to the LUMA building. If you have a car while visiting, your personal covered parking for two vehicles is directly outside the unit. Hiking trails, Universal Studios, Hollywood Walk of Fame and beautiful beaches are all a 20 minute drive. Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm are a 50 minute drive, and San Diego's Legoland, SeaWorld, Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo and SeaPort Village are a just a two-hour drive. Our loft is located in a great area of downtown where you may encounter movie stars or filming on any given day. LUMA is a LEED-Certified Green Building.

About Paula

For several years my family has worked with a humanitarian foundation supporting tribal schools with over 1,000 poor, abandoned, under-served, and stateless residential school children in Chiangmai and Maehongson province, Thailand near the Myanmar (Burma) border. Originally from Bangkok Thailand, I love it here in downtown LA as a second home away from home. Bangkok's original name in native Thai is called 'KrungThep'. It has the same meaning as Los Angeles - the 'City of Angels'. LA also shares a similar crazy traffic style (as in Bangkok), and has many wonderful Thai restaurants. I return to Thailand every year with friends and family for humanitarian projects so this loft is decorated with a taste of Thai spirit. I enjoy bringing back memories of the good deeds from the trips to share with fellow travelers. I am happy to share my 'Thai flare' décor with all of my guests, and hope you are enjoying your stay here with peace and comfort. Thank you for staying at the LUMA Loft on your LA vacation. Hope to see you back soon. Thank you!

Why Paula chose Downtown

Luma building - luxury condo/loft in the heart of the city. An easy walk to staples center, la live!, and the la convention center - where you will enjoy numerous restaurants, movie theaters, sporting events, live concerts, the grammy museum, espn zone, nokia plaza, the nokia theater and the combined jw marriott / ritz carlton residences property. There's a wonderful danish bakery right outside the front door as well as starbucks right around the corner, and restaurants in all directions. Aeg, (the sports & entertainment giant) has its new world headquarters right across the street in the historic desmond building. You can walk to the financial or fashion district, the historic core, or hop the metro to hollywood/universal studios or the long beach aquarium. A car is not necessary to get you here... You can take the flyaway bus from lax to union station and then either the metro line or a short taxi ride to the luma building. If you have a car while visiting, your personal covered parking for two vehicles is directly outside the unit. Hiking trails, universal studios, hollywood walk of fame and beautiful beaches are all a 20 minute drive. Disneyland and knott's berry farm are a 50 minute drive, and san diego's legoland, seaworld, balboa park, san diego zoo and sea port village are a just a two-hour drive. Our loft is located in a great area of downtown where you may encounter movie stars or filming on any given day. Luma is a leed-certified green building.

What makes this condo unique

It is very easy for us to visit hollywood & thai town to enjoy authentic thai food and a genuine therapeutic thai massage. You can take the subway from our unit and enjoy no traffic... The blue line connects to the red line and you are on the way to hollywood and universal studios. The subway station from our condo is an easy walk down the street.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Paula is the consummate host. Quick to respond, clear with information, very accommodating around our plans. The loft is beautiful and very close to all sorts of fun and attractions in resurgent downtown LA. This was a combination of business and pleasure - both were a big hit because of Paula and this fabulous location. Parking made access and moving around so easy. Strongly recommend both Paula and Luma Lofts for your trip to LA.

Beautiful condo , excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this apartment. It had everything including a massage chair! The location was perfect for walking downtown although we never had a problem getting an Uber from our location. The furnishings were beautiful with plenty of towels and two bathrobes, which I used everyday. We were given two keys upon arrival , which let me say if you have ever had to come in from your flight and meet someone at another location, you will truly appreciate the check in process here. We simply told the desk personnel our name and Paula had everything waiting. No driving to one location and then sent on to your destination!We really had no isssues as everything about our stay was detailed in an email from Paula. I will definitely stay here again and if you are coming to LA you should too!

Perfect apartment and location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! We were looking for someplace close to LA Live since it’s near our son who we were visiting. This place was perfect! Close to everything, very comfortably furnished and all kinds of nice little extras. Our host, Paula was very accommodating and great to rent from. The bed is incredibly comfortable, the kitchen and bathroom are well stocked with lots of nice extra touches. Parking in the garage on the same floor of the apartment is also a great bonus. We can hardly wait to return!

Perfect studio in Downtown!

  • 5 of 5

This is really the ideal place to stay in downtown LA for 1-2 people. The location is superb and the flat is awesome. This is the second time I have stayed here and will certainly return next time I have to be in LA for a conference. This is a quick 8" walk to the Convention Center. Highly recommended!
