Taking a trip to Los Angeles for work? Lucky you! If you’re looking for a neighborhood to stay in, you might want to give Downtown Los Angeles a look.
DTLA is experiencing a bit of a boom—sales of office space have hit 10-year highs and vacancies are at record lows. And with plenty of entertainment options available after work, Downtown is fast becoming a destination spot for business travelers in Los Angeles.
Make the most of your stay with one of these chic, spacious, and surprisingly affordable Airbnb accomodations in Downtown Los Angeles.
Old School Meets New
Rate: $163 per night
Number of bedrooms: 2
In case you haven’t heard, the Lakers will have a new teammate next season, and he’s kind of a big deal. So if your client offers you a spot in their suite for a game at the Staples Center, you’d be wise to take them up on that.
If you book this hip spot in Downtown Los Angeles, you’ll have a short trip home after! This 2 bedroom listing is within walking distance, you won’t have to deal with budget-breaking ride share surge prices. Sorry, Uber.
Once you’re inside, relax in an 1800 square foot home that looks like it was decorated by your trendiest friend. There’s warm brick, luxe bathrooms, and quirky accessories galore. (We thought that mustaches could never be used tastefully. We were wrong.)
If you’re planning on staying for a while, there’s plenty of closet space, a chef’s kitchen, and laundry in the building. Plus––here’s the kicker—parking is only $15 per night. For those of you who haven’t suffered LA prices, rates can get as high as $50 (shameless plug: meeting attendees at Convene Los Angeles enjoy complimentary parking Downtown). Save yourself!

If you’re visiting LA with a big group—or just want lots of space to do cartwheels—this apartment is a must-see. But be warned: you’re going to need a few hours to absorb all the art, knickknacks, and general wonderment that this 2200 square foot home has in store.
No matter how big your party is, this AirBnB can likely accomodate you. It’s got 2 private bedrooms, 3 queen beds, 3 twins, 1 couch, and 2 roll always. Oh, and there’s an air mattress. You could practically bring the whole company along for your next conference.
Bonus fun fact: this house was James Brown’s original recording studio. Fingers crossed, you’ll get some of his magic for some after-work karaoke.

Life in LA can be intense and fast-paced. OURS, a new hospitality concept by Ricky Chan and Brendon Garner, is your oasis.
While this AirBnB is clearly inspired by minimalism, there are still beautiful details threaded throughout. We love the faux woodpile that’s stacked underneath the TV, and the abundance of plants bring a boost of life to the space.
One tip from an AirBnB guest: bring an eye mask if you’re sensitive to light. There’s plenty of windows!

Night At the Museum

If basketball isn’t your bag (Lebron Who?) and art galleries are your favorite way to unwind after a day of meetings, this Airbnb is the spot for you.
Located in the Arts District and inspired by the streets outside, the apartment is filled with murals. If that’s not cool enough for you, check out the knight suits, retro Pepsi machine, and vintage signs throughout the space.
Our favorite feature is the temple bathroom, complete with huge mirror and clawfoot tub. If you want to feel like a star before going out, this is the spot to get ready. Of course, this apartment is so interesting that you might end up staying in!
