Review: A Junior Suite with Club Lounge Access at The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles

If you're looking to redeem Chase Ritz-Carlton signup bonus certificates, the Los Angeles property is a good option. Since it's a Tier 4 property, you'll need 60,000 Ritz-Carlton Reward points to redeem a free one-night stay. 

Location and Check-In

The Ritz-Carlton LA is located in the heart of Downtown LA, right next to the Staples center. The Ritz-Carlton is unique because it has 3 private floors within the Marriott Grand Marquis. Although they're in the same building as Marriott, they have completely separate entrances and amenities. 

The lobby is small, and you need an active key card to use the Ritz-Carlton elevators. The front desk staff was generous enough to give us a free upgrade to a junior suite.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay and we'll be back again! The staff was friendly and even though the Ritz-Carlton is only 3 floors, we enjoyed the location and everything the hotel had to offer.
