When I come to LA for pleasure and work the JW Marriott is my first choice ! As a frequent guest of Marriott, I find the JW not only recognizes this but delivers upgrades, outstanding service EVERY visit. The propety is beautiful to the eye, and very open and comfortable to charge up or just get away! The staff are very helpful and go the extra mile to make sure your not only pleased, but completely taken care of! The location and concept of LA Live next to the Nokia and Staples Facilities and LA Convention Center is a great one in that it provide all the best LA has to offer in one location from great food, drinks, Grammy Award Center, Bowling at Luck Strikes, to live performances in the open square. ESPN has a great set up here for their broadcasts and Sports Bar. The location is also easy walking distance to LA downtown to other great places to eat, and visit. Highly recommend this property for not only a delightful stay, but for some great memories! Without question a wonderful find in LA, and look forward to my next visit soon!
