Years ago when I worked and lived in Downtown LA, there wasn’t much going on besides the cool hip cluster of apartment and high rise condos near the Staple Center known as South Park. People’s perception of Downtown LA is mostly negative and at night it is often thought of as an unsafe and sketchy area many tend to avoid. Fast forward to today, downtown is a cool, fun, happening place filled with concerts, sports events, live entertainment and luxury hotels. Downtown L.A. has definitely come alive. A few weeks ago, I spent a weekend celebrating 7th year wedding anniversary with a staycation at one of the best hotels in Downtown – the JW Marriott at LA Live. Many of you guys took a sneak peek from my Instastories and today I’m spilling all the beans on this amazing property.
When you stay at any JW Marriott brand hotel and resorts, it goes without a doubt that a pampering and luxurious experience awaits. And that is the feeling I got when I arrived at the JW Marriott L.A. Live. Situated in the heart of South Park and anchored by Staple Center, Grammy Museum, L.A. Live and the Convention center, the JW Marriott L.A. Live boast a modern, spacious and grand welcome to all the guests. Unwind and recharge in one of their well-appointed rooms and suites, which offer plush bedding, marble bathrooms, mini-refrigerators, sitting areas, ample desks and Wi-Fi. Reserve an Executive Level room for access to the special perks in our exclusive Executive Lounge.
The deluxe city view king room features spacious accommodations, pillow top mattresses and luxurious appointments with beautiful city views of Los Angeles. The Griffin one bedroom suite is a 783-square-foot suite boasts a master bedroom, separate living area and 1.5 bathrooms. Enjoy ample seating on the sofa and lounge chairs, as well as two TVs with cable and premium movie channels. Large marble vanities, complimentary toiletries and fresh towels in our bright bathrooms add to the deluxe room amenities. If you have the luxury to sleep in, you would have to get your breakfast in bed. Nothing like a fresh cup of coffee or OJ with your morning fruits and croissant while you catch up on the daily news or surf the web on your phone.
For amenities, the JW Marriott L.A. Live features a sparkling rooftop pool and bar, a fitness center and numerous superb dining options. Guests also have access to a serene day spa, perfect for rejuvenating. With more than 180,000 square feet of sophisticated event space, the hotel is ideal for lavish weddings and star-studded events. The weekend we stayed, it was a full house because it happens to be Oscar weekend and there sure was a few Oscar viewing parties happening at the property. Guests dressed in sharp evening attire and formal dresses.
Overall, I cannot say enough great things about our wonderful staycation at JW Marriott at L.A. Live. I wish I can stay there longer and not just for the weekend, but given how close it is to our home in LA, it is safe to say that this would not be my last staycation there. Thank you so much for hosting our little family in celebration of our 7 year anniversary. Everyone (kids included) had a wonderful time, we will be back soon!
