If you’re staying in a JW Marriott Hotel, chances are there’s a reason why you’re there. You’re already aware of the the impeccable and consistent cleanliness of their accommodations and the dedication and friendliness of their staff. Whatever the reason, you know that JW Marriott is a safe bet.
JW Marriott Hotel Los Angeles at L.A. Live, however, is more than just clean and consistent; it’s convenient. The hotel is within walking distance to LA’s famous STAPLES Center, LA Convention Center, the GRA and the Nokia Theatre. If you’re in town to catch a game or concert this is the place you want to stay.
Each of the hotel’s 879 rooms come with air conditioning and heat, color TV’s, luxurious bedding, coffeemakers and a safe. Rooms come in a wide array of combinations, ranging anywhere from Deluxe Guest Rooms with one king bed and 375 square feet of space, to the Griffin Suite, which offers one king bed and nearly 800 square feet of space.
And when you’re not out and about with the family, you’ll find several onsite dining options, along with a top tier fitness center and swimming pool to enjoy.

We stayed here for one night for my husband’s business function. The staff was super friendly and helpful with describing the hotel amenities. Unfortunately, since we were only here one night we didn’t have a chance to enjoy the pool or fitness room but they are available.
The room was comfortable and large with a small sofa and chair to sit on. The bed was the famous Marriott bed, so very comfortable and I took note of the pillows so that I can purchase one later. Heavenly!
There was a desk area, a larger flat screen TV and an in room coffee maker. The bathroom was large with a single sink and the toiletries smelled amazing. Your basic big brand business hotel. Room service is available but expect a large service charge which we were told did NOT cover gratuity.
This hotel seems to cater more to business people and business functions. The large ballroom was perfect for the company celebration dinner. Located in LA Live it is close to the Staples Center, the Grammy Museum and there are plenty of places to dine nearby.
I spent 3 weeks at the JW due to my husband undergoing emergency heart surgery during a convention held at the hotel. Hotel called ambulance. I arrived and stayed in the hotel until the day he could fly out. It was a very stressful situation for me and not once did I have a moment of stress at the hotel. Front desk never questioned my increasing billing, they arranged for a larger room during a very busy in house convention to accommodate my husband when he was released from hospital. The lobby restaurant staff,Katie,Carolyn,Ryan,Desiree, and I am sorry if I forgot other names, welcomed me by name when I had dinner after a day at the hospital, their kindness was absolutely over the top. concierge Danielle helped with restaurant reservation for the out of town friends, hiring a car, and a hello and smile when I walked past her desk. Valet attendant helped me with a taxi at 5:00 AM when driver refused to take me to hospital because he wanted a airport run and my Uber app was giving me problems. Room staff where great and kept the room absolutely immaculate. Room service staff were could not have been more professional. Most of all after my lengthy stay I am convinced that the staff attitude and team work approach is largely due to the management skills of the General Manager Mr. Javier Cano.
