“Location and Service Cant be Beat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Accompanied my wife on a business trip at LA Convention center so we stayed at the Marriott. Beautiful hotel, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable room at reasonable price. Only regret is we didnt eat or drink at hotel since our days were filled w/ other obligations. Right in the heart of downtown scene. Would certainly stay again. Hotel is designed well and when you walk out the back you are right in LA Live.

Room Tip: we were in room 550 that had a view of the pool. More than adequate. Was a basic room

Room was excellent. The hotel is right in the heart of downtown, right by the Staples Center. It appeared to be very updated and new. The rooms were spacious, clean and very nice overall. As a only a silver level Marriott Rewards member they gave me a great room with an excellent mountain review on 18th floor.

Perfect place for my trip. Walking distance to the offices I needed to visit. All other colleagues in the hotel were pleased as well. Colleagues in nearby hotels did not have similarly good experiences.

This hotel is very nice, it is your typical upper echelon hotel, wonderful staff, very good food and a few nice choices for cocktails. We checked-in without any issues and only waited about 30 seconds on a very busy Friday. The hotel location is ok, completely depends on why you are in LA - we walked everywhere and did not have a problem but just like any major city be aware of where you are going and be sure to ask first.

The pool is just ok, they could use more shade and better pool service, we didn't come for the pool so its was not a problem for us.

This review is intended for Courtyard by Marriott, 901 Olympic Blvd since it does not exist on Trip Advisor.

As a first experience in L.A, we loved the location in the center of L.A and next doors to the finest restaurants and the Staples center. The hotel itself wasn't great for 2 main reasons. To park your car in the basement, the valet charges you $41 per night which in nature should be complimentary for the hotel guests. Since the valet is being outsourced to a 3rd party, the hotel has the perfect formula to make the most out of your stay. As for breakfast, the reception did not proactively inform us of breakfast timings and location and we ended up eating outside while the buffet was included.
To sum up, we feel the hotel is over priced with poor standards.

We were in la to visit the college my child will be attending in the fall. I didn't expect the jw to be as nice as it was, given the location and how busy it is. The check in was so quick and easy. We arrived before the 4pm check in and our room was ready. The front desk person was very helpful giving us info on what was going on in hotel and answered all my questions. Our room was nicely appointed and very clean! There are notices in the room letting you know about recycling, if you care to use your towels more than one time and how often they change bedding. Our room was roomy enough beds were comfortable. Pillows were a little too hard for us. I appreciated the fact that guests needed to use a room key to get to a floor on the elevator. The jw is extremely busy with conventions and what ever is going on at the staples center, so there are people there that are not guests. The hotel has several good places to eat and drink. The pool is rooftop, clean and great views. There is a rooftop Wolfgang Puck restarant and more casual cafe. We happen to be there for the NHL championship. There were so many people there but it was totally fun. The bar/restarant in the hotel was great. Staff seemed to have things under control and service was still good. When the crowd spilled out onto LA Live they closed for about 20 minutes cleaned up and opened up again not missing a beat. Our checkout was just as easy everything was in order. There is a kiosk where you can check in with your flight and print out boarding passes. If I have one minor complaint, it's that when we arrived no one asked if we needed help with our luggage.

I was lucky enough to stay at this hotel for a work conference. This hotel is absolutely beautiful and just totally LA. The check-in very painless. There is a Ritz that is attached to this hotel also. The hotel is on "lock down", so if you have friends wanting to visit you, they need a key to get up to the rooms.

Some of the rooms have walk-in showers. I would ask for a room with the walk-in shower, as they are really big and nice water pressure.

Room Tip: There are lots of neon lights, so if that may bother you, ask to stay away from them. The shades in...
