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.
The junior suite was a nice surprise. There was a corridor for the closet, and the bathroom was huge.
The bathroom had a double vanity with TV, shower, bathtub, and a good view.
Artwork was on one side of the corridor, and a closet was on the opposite side.
The room had a king-sized bed, desk, TV, couch, and a coffee maker.
Wolfgang Puck has a asian fusion restaurant, WP24, located on the 24th floor. There's also a lounge called Nest.
The rooftop pool features plenty of seating, cabanas, a full-sized pool, and a hot tub. A 24-hour workout room is also available for use.
Certain rooms on the suite level have access to the Club Lounge. Enjoy complimentary light snacks and drinks while taking in the view of Downtown LA.
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.
