JW Marriott Los Angeles, LA LIVE

Business meets pleasure in downtown L.A.
With the bustling Los Angeles Convention Center seeing more than 2.5 million visitors annually, JW Marriott Los Angeles, L.A. Live was a necessary addition to downtown Los Angeles. After a 20-year dry spell, the completion of the 878-room hotel in 2010 marked the launch of the area’s first upscale high-rise.

With amazing access to L.A. Live, a megawatt conglomerate of sports, entertainment and dining venues, this luxury hotel accommodates a large volume of guests each day. For conventioneers, business travelers and those in town for special events, there is unparalleled convenience to ballrooms and meeting spaces.

Besides serving as a grand abode for travelling guests, the campus is also home to many prestigious awards shows, including the Primetime Emmy Awards and the Grammy Awards. In 2011, the JW Marriott hosted the VMA arrivals in the lobby, serving as the spot where Beyoncé famously announced her pregnancy with Blue Ivy.
