I stayed two night at this hotel on a business trip. Gorgeous hotel with a lots amenities. Rooms are very spacious, nicely decorated and very quite. The location is perfect for activities at LA Live or Staples Center. No hassle of traffic for watching a NBA game or concert. It is also very convenient to go to Venice or Santa... More

I stay at JW MH just 2 night... Great service from all employees. Warm and friendly. They all went out of their way to make our stay easy. Restaurants had slow service.. And the breakfast was nothing special. The room are very good

Yes. I live in Colorado and chose Colorado lamb while visiting LA. JW Steakhouse served the best lamb I've eaten anywhere. They obviously start with the best quality meat, then season and sear to perfection. Highly recommend to anyway staying near LAX. Another hotel - not affiliated with this one - actually recommended this restaurant.

Nice exterior and a lovely lobby but the rooms here were not quite as expected, based on the level within the chain and cost. Beds, in particular, were a letdown and felt more Residence Inn than JW. Room service, while delivered by friendly staff, was very average in quality, especially for the cost. Check out was time consuming (understaffed desk).... More

Marriott delivers again. This time in downtown LA. Spacious room and comfortable beds. The only slight issue was the less than stellar bathroom and relatively small TV. Other than that, great location!

Good afternoon Andrea M, We sincerely apologize for the opportunity you are experiencing with your bank. After checking out, the hotel does release the funds and typically, with an international credit card it can take up to several business days depending on your bank. We do understand your frustration, and have made a note to our Front Office team to... More

The worst service I have ever experienced at a hotel, especially a Marriott. We booked in advance for a corporate conference, but were sent away by Kiven Martinez, the front desk supervisor, without a room because they had "overbooked". To add insult to injury we could see them continuing to check people in right next to us, and it was... More

As a travel professional with a great Marriot booking history, I'm extremely disappointed with my recent stay at JW Marriot L.A. Live. Despite the fraudulent transactions that were made to my card by their front desk rep, our stay would have otherwise been satisfactory. Nothing to rave about, nothing to Yelp about. Most of my issues were about things I... More

This hotel is a great location if you are planning to see a game at the Staples Centre. It is clean, bright and the service was very good. Not much to do or see in downtown LA so a night or two would be enough. Starbucks out the front door and just a few steps away.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
