Luxe City Center Hotel - Review

July 31, 2017
“Great Location, but needs new towels”
I initially picked this hotel for the location because it's right across LA Live and basically in the middle of downtown. Bottega Louie is walk-able and FIGat7th is 2.5 blocks down. (FIGat7th - H&M, Zara, VS and Target.) 

Bed was comfy and there are plenty of pillows. The shower is really nice but there is no bath tub. I liked the huge rain shower head. Wifi was great, it was relatively fast and easy to connect.

The only part I didn't like was the stained towels, some had makeup/blood stains and I even found a hair in 2 of them, one was super curly and stuck between the threads so I know it wasn't mine. I highly recommend them to replace towels and carpeting in the hallways. Also, we were kicked out of the seating area near the 2nd floor restrooms because we were eating a snack. Apparently, that area is a part of the restaurant?

There is a little convenience store attached but they close at 10 pm. They have a large smart water bottle to purchase for around $3. We also left some items in the safe by accident and they kindly called us back and we picked it up at the front desk.

Overall, service was good and bad. Room was big but needs new towels. Will probably stay at another hotel on my next visit.

Week 25 - Pregnancy Update

July 14, 2017
Pregnancy Post

So we have picked a name! Belle is 25 weeks now and I can't believe I am in the third trimester. My stomach is growing more and more everyday and it's getting uncomfortable to sit too long or eat too much in one sitting.

Our baby registry is complete and has been sent out to our friends and family. Each day gets more surreal and I can't believe we will be parents. A part of me is scared and nervous but I am also excited and happy. I suppose you never feel like you are truly ready. And hopefully it will just come to us naturally.

Genetics! I am hoping she will get my DH's height since he is tall but my eyes since they are big and deep with emotion. But overall, I wish for her to be healthy and happy.

We have planned and booked our baby moon. We will be in Los Angeles eating the town away. I am excited for this trip because it'll be just the two of us and give us time to reconnect before baby belle arrives.

BTW - it hurts to sneeze!
