Plan a luxe staycation at our favorite Downtown L.A. hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles that literally towers above the city’s fantastic L.A. LIVE entertainment complex. It’s a serene oasis where Staples Center, Nokia Theatre, Club Nokia, The Grammy Museum, Conga Room and Regal Cinemas are within steps from the property. It’s the best place in the city to escape for a luxurious retreat, while still being close to the action.
The LEED certified hotel boasts 123 sophisticated and modern guest rooms with high tech and comforting amenities such as concealed and vanishing TV’s in the bathroom mirrors, sumptuous beds, refreshment centers with coffee makers, iPod docking station, and walk-in showers with rain shower head and soaking tubs. There are also 14 suites, and you can go all out with a 3,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Suite.
We strongly recommend upgrading to the Club Lounge (a $100 charge for two guests per day), which grants you access to a sky high club lounge on the 23rd floor from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. It will be your respite where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, hors d'oeuvres, cordials desserts (the chef likes to experiments with delicious macaroon flavors).
There’s even a state-of-the art espresso, coffee and latte maker, as well as mini-refrigerators stocked with juice, water, soda and even beer. The breakfast spread is especially noteworthy, with assorted bagels and housemade pastries; housemade granola yogurt parfait; smoked salmon with cream cheese, capers, and red onion; selection of charcuterie such as ham, turkey, and cured meats; oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins; quiche; and a selection of fresh, sliced seasonal fruit.
The Club Lounge has beautiful views of the city, plus three flat-screen TVs, a business center with personal computers and printer, and a flat-screen-TV for private boardroom with conference seating.
At Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles you can even make a day of not leaving the hotel. Book a pampering treatment in the 8,000 sq. ft. sumptuous spa with a classic Hollywood vibe. And, enjoy the co-ed sanctuary, private men’s and women’s relaxation rooms, eucalyptus steam rooms and cold plunge showers. There’s also a stunning 26th floor rooftop pool and bar with gorgeous panoramic views of the L.A. skyline.
You can even dine-in with plenty of options to choose from—order a casual lunch poolside, or enjoy award-winning cuisine at Wolfgang Puck’s WP24, a modern twist on Chinese cuisine. Other hotel eateries include Nest at WP24, a menu of Asian-inspired snacks, appetizers, sushi and large plates; LA Market, showcasing fresh and modern cuisine; Esspressamente Illy, an Italian-style café, Glance Lobby Bar, and the Mixing Room, cocktail lounge and small plates.
