JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live Review

Set in a shimmering blue-glass tower, the 878-room convention center-adjacent hotel anchors the L.A. Live entertainment complex that's home to the Nokia Theater and more than a dozen bars, nightclubs, and eateries. A soaring glassed-in lobby faces out to the Nokia and L.A. Live's many digital billboards. People-watching is nonstop from the couches of Glance, the lobby's central bar. Rooms have brightly colored furniture and useful extras such as an easy-to-reach power strip, bedside reading lights, a coffee maker, and an MP3 player. Within the same 54-story tower is a Ritz-Carlton; Marriott guests are welcome at the Ritz's snazzy spa. Chef Kerry Simon oversees L.A. Market–the hotel's mega-size restaurant that serves upscale comfort food.
