The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles Review

This citified Ritz-Carlton is on the 23rd and 24th floors of a 54-story tower within downtown's L.A. Live entertainment complex. No antiques or gilded mirrors here, rather skyline views through expansive windows, blond woods, and smartened-up amenities such as flat-screen TVs–one hidden in the bathroom mirror. Within steps of L.A.'s vast convention center, the Ritz has its own small lobby and rooftop pool separate from the JW Marriott, also in the same shiny skyscraper. Feather-topped beds are wonderfully comfortable and have handy bedside spotlights; most rooms have a sunken tub and shower. Club-level rooms include access to a large western-facing lounge (unequalled for sunset views) that offers a daily buffet of five light meals. Haute Chinese cuisine is the specialty at WP24, the hotel's 24th-floor bar and dining room from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck. It's open for dinner only.
