Wonderful location near LA Live. Close to USC. Wonderful staff ready to assist at a moments notice. The hotel's pool was in a quiet location with plenty of sun. The near by Ritz Residences provided car lovers some great opportunities to see exotic (and expensive) cars.

I stayed there for business for a conference at the LA Convention Center. The Convention Center was close. The staff was super friendly , thanked me for my elite status , upgraded my room. The rooms were very open , updated and clean. The bathrooms were very nice.

The elevators were actually quick, the lobby beautiful and the ambiance perfect for a business trip.

This was a great experience, if I am in LA i will return.

Stayed 4 nights at this hotel for a convention and overall not impressed; At >$300 a night and the flagship of the Marriott group I would have expected more. Check in was unorganized and took forever which is not fun after a long flight. Rooms are more like a Courtyard Marriott than a JW. Very simple rooms, no luxury and bathrooms are unimpressive. Service at the bar very slow and laid back. Food at the restaurant was just terrible- went there only because there arent many options in downtown LA. Checkout took forever to settle the bill which caused a delay to get back the airport. Would not recommend staying here as it is far from everything nice to do in LA.

For a convention hotel, the JW Marriott was very nice. It was close to the Convention Center and LA Live gives attendees lots of choices for food and beverage. The WiFi had very spotty service and was expensive. It was better to be hard-wired in the room if you were going to pay for the service. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom although some were quite worn out. They gym and spa were part of the Ritz Carlton located next door so they were very nice although the spa was quite expensive. The Executive Lounge is normally not open on the weekends which could have been a big issue but our meeting organizer arranged to have it open for our meeting. If you are a business traveler and getting reimbursed for your stay or attending an event at the Staples Center or Nokia Theater, this is a nice hotel. Otherwise, it is quite far from tourist destinations and there isn't much around the area to do in free time.

This hotel is in the LA LIVE area, so close to the Nokia Theatre (right beside) and the Staples Center (across the street). It's also a 5 minute walk to the Convention Center. Despite looking nice, the shower is horrible, and you need to get into the shower to turn it on = getting soaked with cold water!

Room Tip: As always, try to get a room away from the elevators.

This was my first time in LA and I went with a couple of friends who were Marriott members. This is an awesome hotel next to the Staples Center. The building is practically brand new and is very nicely finished. The staff was friendly and the room was over-sized with good views of LA Live. I wished I stayed longer!

My husband and I recently stayed at the JW for a national convention. We were sad to find our room had leftover food in the mini fridge and dried up rose peddles behind the bathroom door (apparently someone had a nice night). Our tv did not work and they did send someone to fix it, but the next day it broke again. We are also not from the area and had not been to LA before. When we asked for directions to a shopping area they sent us 8 blocks in a very "shady" area where their were street vendors. Not quite my idea of a shopping area. We also were told to ride the Metro to get to Long Beach. Not a big deal to us, but it would have been nice to have been tipped off on how long it would take 1.5 hours and what areas we would be traveling through. I am just disappointed in the customer service of a JW. They never bothered to consider we may not be familiar to the area and never gave very good directions etc.
