For several years my family has worked with a humanitarian foundation supporting tribal schools with over 1,000 poor, abandoned, under-served, and stateless residential school children in Chiangmai and Maehongson province, Thailand near the Myanmar (Burma) border. Originally from Bangkok Thailand, I love it here in downtown LA as a second home away from home. Bangkok's original name in native Thai is called 'KrungThep'. It has the same meaning as Los Angeles - the 'City of Angels'. LA also shares a similar crazy traffic style (as in Bangkok), and has many wonderful Thai restaurants. I return to Thailand every year with friends and family for humanitarian projects so this loft is decorated with a taste of Thai spirit. I enjoy bringing back memories of the good deeds from the trips to share with fellow travelers. I am happy to share my 'Thai flare' décor with all of my guests, and hope you are enjoying your stay here with peace and comfort. Thank you for staying at the LUMA Loft on your LA vacation. Hope to see you back soon. Thank you! Toys for Thailand is a 501(c)3 organization; charitable donations are tax deductible.
Paula purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Paula chose Downtown
Luma building - luxury condo/loft in the heart of the city. An easy walk to staples center, la live!, and the la convention center - where you will enjoy numerous restaurants, movie theaters, sporting events, live concerts, the grammy museum, espn zone, nokia plaza, the nokia theater and the combined jw marriott / ritz carlton residences property. There's a wonderful danish bakery right outside the front door as well as starbucks right around the corner, and restaurants in all directions. Aeg, (the sports & entertainment giant) has its new world headquarters right across the street in the historic desmond building. You can walk to the financial or fashion district, the historic core, or hop the metro to hollywood/universal studios or the long beach aquarium. A car is not necessary to get you here... You can take the flyaway bus from lax to union station and then either the metro line or a short taxi ride to the luma building. If you have a car while visiting, your personal covered parking for two vehicles is directly outside the unit. Hiking trails, universal studios, hollywood walk of fame and beautiful beaches are all a 20 minute drive. Disneyland and knott's berry farm are a 50 minute drive, and san diego's legoland, seaworld, balboa park, san diego zoo and sea port village are a just a two-hour drive. Our loft is located in a great area of downtown where you may encounter movie stars or filming on any given day. Luma is a leed-certified green building.
What makes this Condo unique
It is very easy for us to visit hollywood & thai town to enjoy authentic thai food and a genuine therapeutic thai massage. You can take the subway from our unit and enjoy no traffic... The blue line connects to the red line and you are on the way to hollywood and universal studios. The subway station from our condo is an easy walk down the street.

Great location, wonderful stay
Everything about this place was perfect. The front desk, the landlord (Paula), the apartment and the location all exceeded my expectations.
I’ve attended many events downtown, and this stay has to top the list! Not only was the condo gorgeous and close to everything downtown, but it was even better working with Paula. Accommodating and communicative, couldn’t recommend more!
