Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE is lauded for its prime location, particularly when attending events at the Crypto Arena or exploring downtown LA. While the hotel exudes a modern charm and boasts well-kept facilities, opinions on its atmosphere and room conditions vary, with some finding areas dated. Cleanliness receives high marks, yet guests feel the pricing may not reflect the overall value, noting the cost of extras. Service is generally commendable, marked by professional and friendly staff, despite occasional service lapses. Amenities are appreciated, though additional fees for services such as Wi-Fi are a drawback for some.

Nice hotel though its super busy. Great location as itis right next to the LIVE centre. The rooms were really nice and spacious and the bathrooms were nice amazing. We paid for breakfast in advance but the buffet spread is quiet poor for a J W Marriott brand - its better to just order what you want of the menu. The breakfast service staff were generally very rude and unfriendly. Overall, it was a great stay.

Arrived almost late night. Based on my member status, they gave me a very good corner room. Front desk staff who checked me in noticed Im very exhausted after a 5 hours flight, so he gave me a late check out. I had a perfect sleep and got my energy back next morning. The lounge breakfast is very crowded. 1 minutes walking to Crypto Center and LA live. I saw the Clippers game after checkout. They have a Hertz at P1 so you can rent a car very easily.

Stayed as I had tickets to watch the Lakers play. For that it was perfect. Multiple places nearby to eat then walk to the game. It's only 2 minute walk between Crypto Arena and the hotel. Room was nicely renovated and breakfast was good.

La Jolla, California1 contribution
We spent Friday and Saturday night here with my father (87) and son (14). My father has Chairman’s Club and titanium elite status with Marriott. I only write reviews on Marriott hotels as it pertains to titanium travelers as I find these reviews helpful to me when I look for hotels. We came up from San Diego but my father, being 87, tires easily. At check-in they initially said they didn’t have an upgraded room with two beds, despite me calling the day before to confirm. However, the lady at the desk made some changes and we were upgraded to a junior suite with a fold out bed. It was really nice that she went the extra mile to accommodate. Also, they had a wheelchair that I could put a deposit on that we used the entire weekend- also wonderful for my father. We’ve never been to LA Live, we just chose it due to its fairly close proximity to the Magic Castle, as we were attending a show the next day there. FYI- The M club is NOT open on weekends. However, they gave us this card that allowed us an additional $20/day of food, free wine tasting for 2, free bowling from 4-6p at a nice nearby bowling alley, and two free popcorns at the nearby cinema. Having a teen, we actually bowled and ate the popcorn daily. It’s a fun area! Breakfast was also included daily for titanium travelers. They do charge you a daily resort fee of $30 and parking of $50 so that needs to be noted, but the side perks were nice. When we checked out, a bellman named Dan attended to my father and returned the wheelchair for me while I check us out and got my father situated in my car for the drive home. Dan was great and I wanted to shout his name out to management for his kindness. Overall, even though the fees to stay were an additional $80/day the additional perks and the service we received makes me still recommended this hotel, especially to titanium travelers. We had a wonderful weekend stay.

I recently stayed at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE for two nights while attending a conference at the nearby Los Angeles Convention Center. While the hotel was perfectly situated to attend the conference, I was not very impressed by my stay. Despite being a higher-end brand within the Marriott family, this JW felt more like a basic Marriott to me, which is not helped by the fact that it has a generic, large business hotel vibe. My stay was perfectly fine, but it certainly didn’t feel as nice as it should at its price point. Trip Planning: I booked my stay through a room block associated with the conference I was attending, since the blocked rooms were a couple hundred dollars less than the $600+ per night that the hotel was charging otherwise. This meant that I didn’t have much control over my reservation, and I was blocked into an unspecified ‘run of house’ room. However, once I received a confirmation number from the conference organizer, I was able to link it with my Bonvoy account and was advised I would receive all benefits I’m entitled to as a Platinum member. When I called the hotel in advance to put in a request for a king bed, they refused to confirm a king in advance since it was part of a group booking, which was a bit annoying. However, I ultimately had no trouble getting a room with a king bed when I arrived. Arrival: I received a notification from the Marriott app on the morning of my arrival day to let me know that my room was ready. I saw that I had been assigned to a basic City View King, but was hoping for something more upgraded, since the Marriott website and app showed wide open availability that night in virtually every room type (including suites), and Platinum members are entitled to upgrades to those rooms. I knew I was going to be arriving at the hotel very late after a long flight from the East Coast, and wanted things to be as easy as possible when arriving. I messaged the hotel in the Marriott app to see if it would be possible to get upgraded prior to arriving later that night. I knew from experience that the Marriott properties that treat Bonvoy members the best would easily offer an upgrade to one of the larger rooms or suites, while the more mediocre properties tend to deny the upgrade or make you wait until check-in and make a lot of effort to try for it. This hotel was in the more mediocre category, and basically just said that I had to wait until check-in to inquire. When I did ultimately arrive late that night around 1:00 am, I was greeted nicely by one of the doormen despite it being late, and went right into a very desolate lobby where I was able to check-in with no wait at the elite member check-in desk. The staff member was generally nice, and despite it being late, he gave me a good overview of the hotel and pointed out the location of things like the Executive Lounge, gym, and pool. However, when I initially followed up about an upgrade, his only response was that the City View King I had been given was an upgrade (which is a stretch, since that’s just about the most basic room type). When I mentioned that the Marriott website showed many higher room types available, he agreed to take another look and see if another room might be available. After several minutes of looking, he claimed there weren't any available rooms in the hotel that were better than what I had. I found it very hard to believe that not a single upgraded room shown on the website was actually available. When I expressed this again, he took one more look and finally came across a junior suite, with the only caveat being that it was handicap-accessible. I was happy for the extra space, so I took that room and was on my way. The clerk at check-in was nice, and did seem to actually want to help once I pressed a little bit on the upgrade. He spent several minutes perusing his computer and trying to find a room until he had success, and he was never rude about it. However, on the whole, it was just more of a struggle to get an upgrade at this hotel than it should have been, so it didn’t feel like a Marriott property that treats elite members all that well. I wanted to use the mobile key feature in the Marriott app to access my room, but when my room had changed at check-in from the one initially allocated to me, the mobile key never updated. I sent a message in the Marriott app the next day to see if this could be updated, and was told a new mobile key for the correct room would be sent shortly, but that never happened. Room: My room on the 17th floor was a very large junior suite, much larger than the photos of junior suites on the hotel website depicted. I’m not sure if this was because it was a handicap-accessible room or because it was in a corner (or both), but it contained a ton of space, to the point that it felt a bit cavernous. However, I’ll take too much space over a small room any day. Being in an out-of-the-way location at the very end of the hallway meant that the room was very quiet, and I never heard any noise at all. It also had nice views, with windows on two sides. In one direction, I could see other buildings in Downtown LA, along with beautiful sunrises, and in the other direction, I could see the Hollywood Hills and even the Hollywood sign in the distance. Otherwise, I found the room to be perfectly acceptable in terms of its furnishings and condition, but not particularly exciting or luxurious. The room didn’t feel dated, but it was generic enough that it could have been any unmemorable hotel room I’ve had over the past decade. Everything was just plain and sparse, in basic tones of white and gray with a busy carpet featuring lots of overlapping circles that was annoying to look at after a while (especially in combination with other busy patterned carpet in hallways and hotel common areas). Some pluses were that the bed was comfortable and the wifi worked well. However, there were several little things about the room that could have been better. There were no outlets by the bed or on the nightstand, so I had to charge my phone several feet away, which is annoying when traveling and waking up in an unfamiliar place. Housekeeping also did not replace the complimentary water bottles in the room after I used them the first night, which was frustrating. Additionally, the bathroom wasn’t in pristine condition. It was clean enough, but I noticed some dirty grout and just a sense of wear in the shower in particular. The bathroom did not feel like it had been renovated anytime recently, and the mismatch between older-looking tan tile on the floor and newer-looking black and white tile in the shower shows a piecemeal approach to bathroom renovations in the past. The shower also had very weak water pressure and didn’t get very hot, even at its highest setting. It was fine enough to take a quick shower, but it wasn’t a luxurious shower experience by any means. I also found the towels to be quite thin, and combined with the lack of robes, it was hard to see how this JW Marriott really differed from a basic Marriott. Overall, the room was fine, and I really appreciated the generous size of my upgraded junior suite. However, it simply felt kind of basic, and not luxurious at all. If I had been paying the full cash rate those nights, which started at over $600 per night on my dates, I would have been very annoyed. Since the rates at this hotel seem to fluctuate a lot, I’d only consider staying here when the rates are in the $200-$300 range, not when they’re as high as they were during my conference. Dining & Bars: I didn’t actually try any of the hotel restaurants to have any comments about them, but there are a few to select from, in addition to lots of dining in the L.A. LIVE entertainment complex that the hotel is part of. The lobby, which is a cavernous lobby that you’d expect in a meeting/convention-focused hotel, contains the main Italian restaurant, Savoca, which serves all meals. This restaurant looked nice for a hotel restaurant. Glance, the lobby bar, takes up most of the lobby, and is the sort of standard nondescript hotel bar you’d expect to find at a Marriott, and is the place where most business travelers seemed to congregate. There is also a second lobby bar advertised, called the Mixing Room, but it didn’t seem to be open at all during our stay, and instead seemed to be used more as a private event space. There is also an Illy coffee shop on the lobby level (there’s also a Starbucks steps away out the back of the hotel in the next building over). The restaurants in the Ritz-Carlton, which shares the same building as the JW Marriott, but has its own entrance, elevators, etc., also seemed interesting. I’ve read several good things about Corteza at Sendero at the Ritz in particular, but again, I didn’t check it out myself. The only real dining venue I did visit was the Executive Lounge, which I had access to as a Platinum Bonvoy member. This is located on the 4th floor, basically right outside of the elevators, and was generally fine, although not all that exciting. I never had any trouble getting a table in the morning, and there was also some extra outdoor seating in a drab patio area with no view of anything. I thought the lounge had a good variety of food items for breakfast, even if quality was a bit average. Cold items included things like fruit, yogurt, and underwhelming pastries, and the mix of hot items always seemed to consist of scrambled eggs, bacon, breakfast potatoes, and oatmeal, with some other things that rotated, like breakfast burritos one day and bagel breakfast sandwiches the next. I did appreciate the separate fridges with plenty of beverages you could take with you, in addition to a machine to make cappuccinos, lattes, and other coffee drinks. The staff in the lounge was very friendly and efficient at clearing tables. While the lounge itself was sort of dated and boring, I still thought it was pretty good for a standard Marriott lounge and appreciated having it. The problem with the Executive Lounge, however, is limited hours. It is only open for breakfast, and only on weekdays. It’s standard for lounges to be open all day and in the evening, so the limited hours were disappointing and felt stingy. It worked ok with my schedule, since breakfast was the main time I wanted a lounge anyway, but it would have been nice (and standard) to have access later in the day to grab snacks or drinks, along with appetizers at night. Other Amenities: The hotel also offers an outdoor pool on the 4th floor, along with a gym. I checked out each of them, and the gym seemed to be well-equipped from a quick look, while the pool was sort of basic and uninteresting. It doesn’t have any view to speak of, and I wouldn’t really want to spend time there unless the weather was particularly conducive to a pool day. Location: The hotel is located in Downtown Los Angeles in the L.A. LIVE entertainment complex. L.A. LIVE features things like the Grammy Museum, the Los Angeles Convention Center, the Crypto.com Arena, a lot of chain restaurants, a movie theatre, and a bowling alley, and has a bit of a mini–Times Square feel with a lot of lights and stimulation. Since some parts of Downtown LA feel a bit desolate and rough, being in L.A. LIVE certainly has a more revitalized, safe feel, with more people around. It was perfect for the attending a conference, since it was a convenient five-minute walk out the back door of the JW. However, I wouldn’t stay in Downtown LA unless I had an event to attend or reason to be there like in this case. Service/General: I didn’t have a ton of contact with staff members at this hotel, but those I met were generally nice enough. It felt like basic service you’d have at any standard Marriott. I did notice, however, several areas where there just needed to be more attention to detail around the hotel in general. In one of the elevators, there was some sort of sticky beverage spilled on the floor in the corner of the elevator. I got on that elevator several times and the spill was never cleaned up at all during my stay, so there clearly wasn’t any attention to detail from staff to notice and clean this. Similarly, the hallway on my floor was littered with room service tables and used plates and glasses almost all the time, which gave it a messy/dirty feel. All they needed was for room service staff to do a sweep of the floor at some point each night to tidy things up, but this didn’t occur. I also called the front desk one night because I had ordered dinner from outside the hotel, and it came without any silverware. I called to see if I could either come downstairs and grab a set of silverware and a napkin, or have one sent up to my room. I was told that they could deliver plastic silverware to my room for free, or if I wanted actual silverware, there would be an in-room dining charge to have it delivered. I ended up going with the plastic, and it was delivered to my room very quickly. However, it just seemed tacky to refuse a guest something as simple as silverware without an extra charge, especially at a hotel that espouses to be a more “luxury” Marriott brand. Little things like this are what made me feel like this hotel was rather average overall. Overall: Overall, the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE is a fine enough hotel, with a convenient location for events in Downtown LA. I just found, however, that it leaned too far into being non-descript and too far away from offering a luxury stay, especially at its price point and for its brand. I think the Ritz-Carlton that’s in the same building would have been a much better fit for me, and I’d look there first if I need to stay in this location in the future.

This hotel is set up mainly for conventions, which is great if you’re there for a convention. The hotel does nickel and dime you for everything. I understand why valet is expensive, but wifi isn’t free, and lounge access isn’t available even if you have a lounge access room. The beds had no pillow top and were too firm. Overall it was ok but there are other hotels to try in the area

Not small, funky or unique. Large, clean and mostly efficient. They have a great gym. There is good breakfast down stairs, cabs and ubers always by the front door. Seemingly far from everything but what isnt in L.A. ONly compliant is it took an act of congress to get a copy of my room bill. Room was clean and view was nice. I was there in Mat and USC uses this hitel to host their football recruit visitors.

I’ll make this short and to the point. Check in was flawless. No upgrade available for platinum elite. Free breakfast for platinum elite. Upon entering the room we went to fill the mini fridge and their was left over food from the previous guest. Dessert wrapped in napkins and a Togo box that we didn’t open. I called to ask house keeping to remove and they obliged and graciously gave a $100 meal credit. House keeping never came so after several hours we put it all in a trash bag outside the room. I went to get food to go from the bar. Ordered a burger (28$ waygu) and a chicken salad. Upon getting the meal I opened everything and realized I was given a side salad instead of the $28 salad I ordered. They offered to remake the entire meal and removed the chicken salad from the bill. When I got to my room and opened the hamburger I was shocked to see they put two frozen Patties in place of the waygu patty. I hate eating at hotels and this is a solid reason why. Hotel has nice lobby, uninviting bar, 2 star pool with no service, and good location.

Amazing experience. Very comfortable and very spacious room and a very spacious bath space. Nice check in and check out experience. The rooftop heated pool was incredible and provided much needed rest. The coffee place in the lobby always provided a delicious cup.
