Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles

Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles Entrance
When we were in LA we got a chance to stay at the Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles at LA Live. What a great downtown hotel, surrounded by restaurants, museums and a state of the art movie theater.

The front receptionist Samantha was awesome! She was so polite, helpful, and respectful. She Immediately gave us a complimentary upgrade to an Exec Suite on the Club Floor. Super nice.

Executive Suite Living Room
The Exec Suite was huge, with a living room area, a dining room, dressing room and 1 1/2 baths. The large  bath had a tv in the mirror. There was also a complementary Nespresso machine along with Ritz bottled water. We were very happy.

Ritz Club Lounge
We loved the Club Lounge. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food is healthy and really good! We have used the club lounge in many hotels and this one at the Ritz LA is one of the best.

It’s located on the 23rd floor, and is open Mon-Sun from 7am-10pm and again, it’s fantastic. 

All you do is swipe your keycard for access and open the door to wonderful food and drink.  First off: a foyer with a wall of candy and a table of sweets (macaroons, cookies) right there.  The reception/concierge desk is at the end of this table.

To the left is a self-serve wine and liquor station and the food area is right there too.  Small tables and comfy chairs. There’s also Flatscreen tv’s and Free wi-fi placed nicely around the room. 

Downtown Los Angeles
View Toward Hollywood Hills
The views were similar to those from our 23rd floor executive suite (since we’re right around the corner from the lounge) living room. We looked towards Hollywood and the Hollywood sign across the lively I-110 freeway below.

26th Floor Pool and Jacuzzi
The roof top pool was beautiful and we were able to sit out there and have a couple of drinks in the beautiful 85ºF (29ºC )weather. Classic Los Angeles autumn weather.

Wolfgang Puck's WP 24
We later had dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s WP24 Asian restaurant which was fantastic. It has a nice modern take, great views and reminds us of eating in Hong Kong.

Bath and Shower in Suite
When in LA it is difficult for us to stay anywhere else but the Ritz at LA Live.The Ritz staff was amazing, very gracious, very helpful and always thankful when receiving tips, etc.  We shall return.

Highly recommended!
