I stayed at the hotel for a convention. There was plenty of staff to great you and service was what I would expect with a JW and rate paid. The lobby area has a very sterile feel to it. The fitness center is under sized for size of hotel. 30 minute wait for cardio in morning, not as bad in the evening.

The location is the best part of the hotel. For pro basketball, museums and great restaurants.

I stayed at this property for 3-nights while traveling for a conference. The conference was held in their banquet facilities and all the networking events (including the opening reception at the Nokia Theater) were just a few minutes walk away from my room. Check-in was a breeze even though a lot of people attending the conference were arriving around the same time.

Con:
Bathroom was really tiny compared to other JW Marriot properties I have stayed at.

Always stay here for events at the Staples Center, you can't beat walking across the street! Great food and drinks establishments also within walking distance (a block). The rooms are always crisp and clean, staff is EXCELLENT, definitely worth the extra money to treat yourself to a quality hotel experience. Only wish valet parking wasn't $40 a night... that's rather steep, but still, I feel safer leaving my car with them than across the street in a public overnight lot.

Room Tip: I've stayed here a dozen times, never had a "bad" room...

Stayed two nights after long flights(x2) from Australia. Room on 21 floor. Reception staff excellent, porter excellent, concierge excellent, room very good. Great assistance in getting taxi large enough for a LOT of luggage. Getting back to LAX by taxi could have been the long traumatic trip(as frequently reported) without their help. This will be my hotel of choice for future trips.

Loving my stay! Gracious comfortable service. Special requests met quickly with a smile. Loved all the quiet nooks sprinkled throughout public areas. Our quiet room overlooked pool and the LED billboard mentioned in other reviews was no problem with the blackout curtains. A stunning hotel with a modern Asian vibe. Came for a girls getaway, love it so much I'm making plans now to return with my husband.

The Good:
This is a beautiful property with a great lobby, plenty of space in the rooms and decent city views. The cafe in the lobby is a nice touch, taff is friendly and parking is a breeze. If you are going to be staying around the LA live area, book this hotel with confidence.

The Bad:
If you want to get away from downtown and the chains of LA Live to some true local spots you better have your own car and some free time. Traffic getting out of the downtown area is horrible and cabs are worse than NYC in availability and prices. This is not the hotel's fault but the LA live area is lacking in decent food and entertainment, or at least it was in January.

The JW Marriot is really a nice hotel. You get a feeling of intimacy with a very nice friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable and well cared for again with helpful attentive personnel. The lobby is all one open space .A coffee & snack corner, a bar area and a restaurant , a separate hip bar area, The food is good not rave worthy but good .
The pool is awesome! Lounge chairs , comfortable. If you are attending a Convention or going to the Staple Center I recommend it highly.
