Outfitted with bright yellow tones and bold blues, each guest room is accentuated by natural light and a contemporary seating area.

“Throughout the property guests will be able to pinpoint similar elements found in the E-Central logo. Influenced by the artistic Golden Ratio, items have been placed along intersecting lines to create the most aesthetically pleasing design,” said Xintao Ye, Director of Design at Burgeon Hotel Group. “Our vision was to merge cultures and create an authentic experience, while becoming the premier destination in the center of it all.”

Incorporated in the transformation, E-Central Hotel’s fitness center will encompass more than 1,000 square feet. The new space will feature a variety of convenient health and fitness options for guests including a selection of strength equipment and cardio machines.

Rooted in helping others grow in awareness, peace and overall health, E-Central Hotel will also debut a multi-faceted yoga studio led by elite instructors to push fitness fanatics, yogis and newcomers to discover new workouts for their wellness routine.

The property’s signature Nixo Patio Lounge returns as Downtown Los Angeles’ best kept secret, dishing up a wide array of American staples. Grab-and-go items will be served daily, offering individually wrapped sandwiches, market-fresh fruit and more. The daytime barista bar will be fully equipped to curate everything from dragon fruit smoothies to vegan protein shakes and serve freshly roasted La Colombe Coffee.

Each day at dusk, the venue will transform into a full-service lounge overlooking the Downtown Los Angeles nightlife. The evening menu will expand to feature a variety of shareable foods, burgers, craft cocktails and fan-favorite wood stone pizzas.
