The JW Marriott is attached behind the Ritz-Carlton tower. If you look closely you can see the JW Marriott logo along the side of the building at the top.

The Ritz-Carlton and J.W. Marriott in Downtown LA Are Looking Good
We were cruising along the 110 yesterday in downtown Los Angeles and noticed that the Ritz-Carlton/J.W. Marriott hotel at LA Live is looking pretty fly. The hotel hybrid will open in March 2010 but the exterior of the 54-story skyscraper is nearly complete. And remember, this exterior is where the giant video-screen will be. (You can see it better in the picture below.)
The building will be one-part JW Marriott, one part Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles and one part The Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA Live. We're actually very excited about these new upscale hotels coming to downtown Los Angeles. It's about time downtown got some more respectable hotel options for travelers. And maybe, just maybe, Bill Marriott will visit
us...er...LA more often.
The hotel is already on Twitter too. A recent Tweet? Watching downtown LA prep for the Lakers NBA Champions parade. The hotel is already rooting for the home team. Check out that "Go Lakers" sign on the building.
