The Ritz-Carlton Hotel & Residences and JW Marriott at L.A. LIVE located in downtown Los Angeles, CA is a ground-up, Type I concrete and steel mixed-use project distributed across two conjoined structures with 54 and 18 levels above grade and three levels below grade. It includes a combination of 878 4-star JW Marriott hotel and 123 5-star Ritz-Carlton boutique hotel keys involving 24 different guestroom types and 212 Ritz-branded condominium residences on the top 25 floors including 12 luxury penthouses. Three levels of below-grade connected parking and support space totals 231,816 square feet and 467 stalls.

The iconic tower, with curved exterior skin comprised of 30 colors, serves as the visual anchor for the larger six-block sports and entertainment district. The J.W. Marriott’s three-story reception lobby is the urban connection between downtown and L.A. LIVE, STAPLES Center, and the Los Angeles Convention Center. The luxury building features two separate elevated pool decks, five bars, three kitchens, two lounges, fitness facilities, retail, six escalators, 30 elevators, and a bridge across a public street connecting to an adjacent structure.

The 24th floor houses WP24 restaurant with floor to ceiling windows providing stunning views of the skyline. The hotel offers meeting and event planners at the Gallery Collection with nearly 100,000 square feet of ballroom and meeting rooms to service up to 3,000 seated guests. With the size and flexibility of the event space, the project provides long-awaited support for the Los Angeles Convention Center.
