This will do nicely, thanks! A warm, inviting, even chic hotel steps away from the Staples Center and L.A. Live, the JW is teeming with, well, newness. Everything here looks and feels clean and fresh, from the sprawling lobby to the elevators to the doors of the rooms.
The rooms themselves aren't otherworldly, as they actually seem a little small for a JW, but the AV equipment in the room is outstanding and among the best I've ever seen in a hotel room. Shower's a little quirky, but very comfortable and got the job done.
Security was a little weird; normally, you have to swipe your card to get to your floor (something which people weren't realizing, since I could hear the sound of elevators buzzing with failure everytime I walked over to the lifts), but because I was staying on the fourth (I think) floor, which is shared with the spa and pool, anyone could come on my floor without even having to show ID. That was a little disconcerting and might be a reason to ask for a higher floor.
Service was efficient and reliable. I didn't eat or drink at the hotel, but there are multiple restaurants and bars in the lobby to go along with room service.
All in all, this was a really pleasant experience. Definitely worth shelling a little extra out for the next time you're going to be in this area of LA. I haven't stayed at the Four Seasons, so I can't compare, but this blows away the Sheraton and Luxe.
