Opened April 2010 in the centerpiece of the city's revitalized downtown, the Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles shares space in a 54-story tower with The JW Marriott Hotel Los Angeles. The structure lies within the L.A. Live sports and entertainment district.
Inside its 123 guest rooms, guests find 400-thread-count linens, separate showers and tubs, bathroom scales, flat screen TVs, and complimentary overnight shoeshines (but not wi-fi without a fee).
The luxury Ritz property is less than half the size of the Marriott, yet it holds a spa (and obligatory fitness center). It's the first spa we've heard of where those who book anything from a massage to a mani-pedi won't have to listen to brain-deadening spa music. At each treatment table, an iPod dock enables guests to choose their own tunes to serenade their treatments.
Thanks to the building's stature and design, guests are privy to some of the best views in Los Angeles from many parts of the hotel, including the 23rd-floor Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge and the private rooftop pool and bar on the 26th floor.
Foodies will be drawn to WP24, Wolfgang Puck's Asian-accented restaurant on the hotel's 24th floor. To optimize views, the dining area has floor-to-ceiling windows. Couples planning a special celebration can make arrangements to sip and sup in the wine cave or one of the private dining rooms.
A grand space for a wedding the Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles offers more than 100,000 square feet of meeting and event space in ballrooms dubbed Diamond, Platinum, and Gold.
The fun and excitement of downtown LA is just an elevator ride away. L.A. LIVE contains restaurants and nightspots, sports and entertainment attractions that include:
- Staples Center
- Nokia Theatre and Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE
- Conga Room
- Regal Cinemas' 14 theaters
- The Grammy Museum
- Rosa Mexicano
- Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill
