We went to a concert in the Staples center for a nice concert and had our hotel next door. We expected the hotel to be part of treat we gave ourselves....it was not.

Average room, no complementary wifi, pay an annoying extra dollar for each call when you use a phone card, you had to use valet parking, as they told at arrival that the self parking garage had very inconvenient closing times etc. It seems the hotel wants to irritate you. They really made an effort to make you feel bad. It's a shame. Of course they ask a high price for all that nonsense. Very disappointing hotel.

They did not succeed!!!! The concert was perfect, so we had a very very good time after all!

Very nice rooms, restaurants and appealing design. Mike at the concierge desk was great - helped be get all around LA. One negative - they need to wash their exterior windows... couldn't tell if it was overcast or sunny, they were SO dirty.

A recent stay at the Marriott Hotel Los Angeles at LA Lives to attend the NAHREP conference was a real experience for me. The programs were very educational and had terrific instructors.

Room Tip: Noisy customers in the halls late at night. Dont stay near the elevator.

Have just returned from a convention and stayed at this hotel at the LA Live area. It is next to Staples Centre, Nokia Theatre, Regal Cinema and the L.A. Convention Centre. Very convenient - newly built and very beautifully designed and decorated. We had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: There was little noise even though we were facing the L.A. Live area.

Was here for a work convention and stayed for several nights. It is a fairly new hotel so it is still in very good shape. The rooms are very comfortable - large with great bathrooms. In room single-serve coffee is provided. The hotel has a fitness center and pool, but I didn't have time to use them. The hotel is a very convenient to the LA Convention Center, Nokia Theater and Staples Center. There are also lots of restaurant choices within a couple of blocks.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room for your best chance of seeing the sights like the Hollywood sign.

I stayed here on business last week and really liked this hotel. It's big and new and has a great bar, restaurant, pool and rooms. Cool location at the LA Live complex left no shortage of things to do.

Exceptional service and hotel facilities. Enjoyed superb meals and service at the Market and cocktails at the bar. Entire hotel staff is professional and customer-service oriented. For a dining treat, head up to WP 24 in the adjoining Ritz-Carlton. You could not ask for a better location at LA Live.
