Expert Review

A renaissance continues to rock LA’s formerly business-only Downtown neighborhood, and the Ritz-Carlton at L.A. Live is at the cornerstone of the neighborhood’s newest entertainment endeavor: The enormous, 2.5-billion-dollar L.A. LIVE, a sports, entertainment, and hotel complex next to the STAPLES Center and Nokia Theatre. Opened in April 2010, the Ritz is stacked on top of a 54-story, LEED-certified tower, and features a sleek, contemporary aesthetic (a fresh look for a Ritz) and a swank full-service spa. Just steps away from the hotel, guests can take advantage of L.A. LIVE's offerings – bowl at Lucky Strike Lanes, dine at restaurants like Katsuya or Rosa Mexicana, or catch a Lakers game – then head for some pre- or post-event drinks at the Ritz’s Club Lounge on the 23rd floor for cocktails and sweeping city views; the rooftop pool lounge, Ion, on the 26th floor; or WP24, Wolfgang Puck’s onsite Asian restaurant.
