“Los Angeles Downtown”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

The JW Marriot is really a nice hotel. You get a feeling of intimacy with a very nice friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable and well cared for again with helpful attentive personnel. The lobby is all one open space .A coffee & snack corner, a bar area and a restaurant , a separate hip bar area, The food is good not rave worthy but good .
The pool is awesome! Lounge chairs , comfortable. If you are attending a Convention or going to the Staple Center I recommend it highly.

Excellent cocktails. Decent atmosphere. Our server was great. $15 cocktails are a bit pricey but worth it.

The food however was ok at best. Wings were big and juicy but cold.

Would definitely return with friends to enjoy a drink, but eat elsewhere.

Booked in by others because of an event in the function room. Not sure where. Room was good with views over the CBD? Hadn't ever stayed in the CBD before. Service was generally quite good without being exceptional. Buffet breakfast very ordinary & and disappointing to have no A la carte offer. Would stay again if an event in downtown LA

The lobby is like a huge bar, and decor everywhere is so modern and nice touches in the rooms as well. Made me feel old when I wasn't too thrilled about the dance music playing the lobby at 8 in the morning... Was there for business. Views were great. Food was excellent.
One downside was that even though there was a lot of seating in the lobby area, none of the electrical outlets worked.

The hotel and lobby are beautful. In a great location downtown.
The one downside was how busy it seemed. If there are any concerts or events going on next door it will be swarming. I happened to stay here when Taylor Swift was performing and had to deal with the babies and children running up and down the hallways. Same goes for the pool area, can get very crowded.
If you can get a good deal...$150 or less than for sure book it. Check out their military discounts! I stayed here for $120 per night.

Room Tip: We had a view facing North, which had the mountains and the observatory. If you get the South side...

I had a corner room so I could see 180 degrees around me. It was decorated nicely and perfect setting for me to work in. The fitness center was clean and had state-of-the-art equipment. I checked in the day after the Grammy's and was expecting a long delay in getting my room but it was ready at 3 pm. Great location if you are attending an event at the Staples Center given how many fun restaurants there are in the area.

It was the second time we stayed at this hotel,
The location of this hotel is SUPERB,
Very comfortable & spacious rooms with view of L.a.live, Nokia theatre, Staples centre, Grammy museum just outside of this hotel with lots of restaurants in this area,
Those who wish to see LA by Metro train, the Pico station just walking from the hotel
L.A market cafe is one of the good choice to eat in the hotel
My overall experience is very good about this hotel,
Highly recommended . . .

Room Tip: Get Room with a view of L.A.live.
