“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed at the JW Marriott at LA Live for the Sweet 16 a couple weeks ago. It was a gorgeous hotel and from the minute we arrived we felt like royalty everyone was extremely helpful and nice. We enjoyed the area very much there was always something to do and we didn't have to walk very far. The breakfast buffet was excellent. We had a great time all around!!

Stayed at JW Marriott when attending the NCAA Men's Basketball Western Regionals. Was SO convenient to walk out the back of the lobby, across the courtyard directly into Staples !! The room was spacious, bed was comfortable, the fitness center had many nice amenities, the concierge/front desk/valet staff were all top notch. Very helpful, courteous and efficient. Many restaurants in walking distance as well as a Starbucks right outside hotel. Will definitely stay here every time I attend something at Staples. Not having to deal with crowded parking garage traffic before/after event as well as not having to drive 2+ hours home after is worth every penny at the JW.

Rooms had recently updated furnishings and was very nice. Easy walking distance to Staples Center and LA convention center. Many good restaurants and bars nearby, though neighborhood was generally sketchy outside immediate hotel area and I would not recommend walking around by yourself after dark (eg there was dealer offering his products to us on sidewalk between hotel and Trader Vic's 1 block away -- nice).

Just stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip. Overall the room is excellent - very spacious and has all the amenities
Reception very efficient for check-in and check-out

a few negatives
1. hairdryer on a very short cord so you cannot style your hair at all - must be a safety requirement but totally impractical
2. the in room coffee machine cannot be used to make a good cup of tea - they need to provide a kettle. Also for a hotel of this standard to provide paper cups for your tea / coffee is unacceptable

Just returned from three nights at this hotel. Superb in every aspect. Service was at a level one would expect from a Ritz-Carlton (next door and connected). I guess the merger paid off. The room was very modern and spotless. In-room refrigerator in the desk/drawers. Big closet with additional drawers and in-room safe. Loved the bathroom - big shower (no tub) and well appointed with plenty of room to lay out all my "stuff." The Executive lounge was very nice and very busy but the staff was well up to the task of cleaning plates and making space for the next wave of breakfast eaters. The location, as noted, is great for the Staples Center and the Convention Center. It is also a fairly easy drive from LAX. And only three and a half miles from Dodger Stadium (up hill). The only negative is not really a negative, just a fact - this is one big hotel and the walk to the end of the Gold Ballroom in the conference center will take you five minutes. One other plus, the hotel is connected to the Ritz-Carlton by a small hallway on the first floor. Take a short walk to the Ritz elevator to the 24th floor for one of the best bars in the city.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Olympic will hear construction noises until the new hotel across the street is finished...

I have stayed at this hotel twice now, and both times I was overwhelmed by the efficiency and courtesy of the staff. Room service, Valet, and poolside service are all excellent.

This is THE HOTEL to stay at if you are looking for a great pool in downtown LA. I grew up in LA and go back for business/pleasure trip about once of month. This pool is amazing, on the 4th floor over looking the staples center and LA Live, they offer mostly full room-service menu and a poolbar with a sandwich menu. Drink are the normal luxury hotel prices, but that's what you get when wanted a nice place to stay.

In the summer they give out free Popsicle and pool float toys to guest around the pool. There is nothing better than being half awake laying by the pool and have someone offer you a Rocket Pop!

The Ritz in the same building is supposed to have a very cool pool on a higher floor, but I imagine it getting to windy and cool a lot of the time. Plus the ritz is probably and average 100$ more a night.

LA LIVE offers lots of bars restaurants, movie theaters, music venues, and of course the staples center. Then downtown is overrun with great restaurants and bars.

I highly recommend this hotel if you can afford it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors will give you a better view. Rooms on the south side will give you a view...
