“Great Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This is a brand new hotel. We arrived on Wednesday afternoon and checked in without any problem. We were in town so our daughter could attend the AnimeExpo Convention at the Civic Center. The hotel handled the large crowd staying there without any problem. Two things stood out: the amazing breakfast each morning with Tami the food service boss leading the way. She is the hardest working female in food service! Also, Juan, one of the staff members. He worked each day we were there but always went out of his way to say hello when he saw me. He needs a day off!!! The entire staff is great. Our room was great. Lots of room and comfortable beds. My wife wants to buy the same mattress for her bed. If and when we go back to LA, we will be staying there. Great location and amazing pool. Also, plenty of washers and dryers for laundry.

Room Tip: don't worry if your room faces the freeway. no noise at all.

I have historically stayed at the JW Marriott Los Angeles and have found that the Residence Inn and Courtyard by Marriott located across the street from the LA Live Campus to be a wonderful alternative. The hotel staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The hotel is new, rooms are spacious and well-appointed and the overall feel of the environment is very cool. Included breakfast is a bonus. Highly recommended.

PROS: Totally convenient for Amime Expo! Free breakfast and wifi!!! Kitchen & Fridge! Able to focus on spending money at convention vs. Hotel amenities! Walking distance to convention center and across the street from regal cinema and la live restaurants!

CONS: Loud air conditioner! It wouldn't make up its mind between high and low?!
$38 parking!

I absolutely love this hotel. It is beautiful and stylish- and most importantly, CLEAN! The hotel has so many features that make it a desirable destination. From the rooftop pools with the spectacular view to the mellow lounge areas, to the multitude of restaurants just across the street at LA Live. This is the perfect hotel for business travelers, and families, too!

Room Tip: The higher up you are, the better the view!

A total gem - absolutely love this location. Everything is beautiful, from the lobby, to the gorgeous, swanky lounge where a delicious, huge breakfast is served, to the infinity-style pool area with cabanas, to the well-equipped gym, to the suite itself. The suite was gorgeous - It felt like a modern, cool urban apartment that frankly I didn't want to leave! Staff is all upbeat, helpful and seem happy to be there. And the location is great, right across the street from LA Live so walking distance from great restaurants and entertainment. Even for relative locals like myself, if you are downtown for an event at Staples or LA Live this is ideal. Treat yourself to a stay here. Great experience. Great Location.Highly Recommend.

What an outstanding experience I had staying here

The brand new rooms are pristine and the staff, food, and overall value made my trip to LA perfect!

I will certainly stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting LA!

Beautiful hotel with lots of attention to details. Breakfast area has private built in TV's in cozy both spaces, coffee shop also has cozy spaces to hang out and either enjoy your coffee or get work done. The hotel is so upscale that you forget that it is a Residence Inn and not a 5 star hotel. Staff is excellent and attentive. I travel a fair amount for work so have lots of experience with different kinds of hotels. The bed was wonderful and the pillows (very important for me) were perfect.
