At The Figueroa, downtown LA is just a stroll away. With only 252 guestrooms and ten meeting spaces, this boutique hotel is designed to make your life easier and better—from poolside yoga classes to complimentary cocktails and delicious food.
The Figueroa Hotel is a unique Los Angeles landmark located in the heart of Downtown’s Golden Triangle, home of the famed Union Station and Museum of Contemporary Art. This is a boutique hotel with a hip vibe, great service and stylish rooms set in a 1913 Walnut Street building.
Located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, a short walk from the Staples Center, the Hotel Figueroa is an urban hotel that has it all: top-notch service, high-end amenities, and a convenient location. As an Unbound member, you can enjoy the benefits of the membership with special rates on the exclusive Unbound Collection of brands and amenities.
Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced a new addition to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt: the 95-year-old Figueroa Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand now includes 27 unique hotels. The Figueroa is the first hotel in Los Angeles and the third in California, following the Mar Monte in Santa Barbara and the Carmel Valley Ranch in Carmel.
The Figueroa Hotel was opened in 1926 by the YWCA as an exclusive accommodation for women travelling alone. It was the first hotel of its kind to be financed and managed by and for women; the Figueroa Hotel was also the largest such project in the United States at the time. The first female general manager of hotels in the U.S. was pioneer Maude Bouldin, who for years made the Figueroa Hotel a meeting place for nearly every women’s club in Los Angeles – a legacy continued today by the hotel’s current general manager, Connie Wang.
What is new and noteworthy in Figueroa in 2021
2021 Selected artist: Shyama Golden
In keeping with the Figueroa Hotel’s women-centric philosophy, the hotel has selected Los Angeles-based artist Shyama Golden as its lead artist for 2021. The hotel’s collaborative artist program includes a changing art exhibit and special programs for guests and residents throughout the year. According to Hyatt, the collection is thought-provoking and deeply meaningful. She explores notions of femininity and how they are experienced, fulfilled, and enhanced through art and community. The art explores themes of growth, connection, healing and identity.
The hotel recently opened its first ever Featured Artist Suite, transforming the Figueroa Suite into a lush environment with live plants, trellises and more to bring to life the artistic elements of nature and education, as well as a selection of new and original works by Shyama Golden that will create a mini museum for guests.
