A slew of new developments and property renovations can be found across the country's second-largest city, but perhaps most impressive for the Los Angeles landscape is the dramatic rate of growth seen downtown. That should be of particular interest to planners, given the proximity of the neighborhood to the Los Angeles Convention Center and L.A. Live.

The 294-room Mayfair Hotel, for instance, has unveiled a property-wide redesign that showcases a contemporary take on 1920s glamour in its refreshed lobby and common areas. The remodeled pool and fitness center will debut later this fall.

The L.A.-based Proper Hospitality purchased the former L.A. Press Club and Case Hotel building and is rebranding it as the 148-room Proper Hotel Downtown LA, slated to include two restaurants, a rooftop pool and approximately 6,800 square feet of meeting space when it debuts this winter.

The 174-room Hoxton LA opened Oct. 1 in a transformed 1925 building that once was the headquarters of the L.A. Railway Authority. On offer are three restaurants and a rooftop pool.
