Cyties men go where no other men have gone before. And that’s not some metaphysical bullshit saying – we literally go to the places that people ignore, look past, or diminish, because we do things differently.
We aren’t looking for cookie cutter hotels with bland décor who have no story and no essence, which is why we love The Tuck Hotel.
you’ll feel like it’s your home – if your home was impeccably designed in neutral tones, original artwork, flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, and furniture with brass elements.
Ten years ago, no one went to Downtown Los Angeles. Beyond offices, the Staples Center, and maybe a smattering of restaurants and bars, it wasn’t where people lived and it sure wasn’t where people visited.
But things have changed, and now Downtown Los Angeles has grown and it has its own vibe. It’s artsy and stylish, minimalist in some ways, still a little gritty, but ultimately has a unique kind of class. And The Tuck Hotel is among the coolest new places that represents what makes DTLA amazing.
The Tuck Hotel is a minimalist boutique property designed by the owner himself. The building was originally a brothel in 1922, but now it’s a 14-room cozy space that’s inviting CYTIES travelers to live like DTLA-ers.
The hotel is for guests only, so you’ll feel like it’s your home – if your home was impeccably designed in neutral tones, original artwork, flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, and furniture with brass elements. Due to the size, it’s easy to get to know the staff and ask them for the best advice on things to see and do in DTLA.
Perhaps, the only drawback is that there are not many amenities on-site, but we like to think that’s a good thing. It means you must leave the roost and explore all that downtown Los Angeles has to offer. Walk the streets to admire the art, grab a coffee from Stumptown or a beer from Modern Times Dankness Dojo, visit the Broad Museum, or catch a game at the Staples Center.
Stay at The Tuck Hotel and you’ll become a true DTLA-er in no time.
Some of us have introvert personalities—this is the dwelling for you if that’s your style. Leave the flashy bells and whistles for all the Marriott zombies
