It's Good to Be an Executive...Suite at The Ritz-Carlton at LA Live
We are suckers for a room with a killer view. We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.
Occupy Wall Street might be against executives but when it comes to killer views, we have nothing against them. Executive suites, that is.
Today's killer view can be found from the sweet suite at the Ritz-Carlton at LA Live. Up on the 23rd floor is this Executive Suite which, aside from killer views of the Staples Center and downtown Los Angeles below, features a dining area for six, a wet bar, a powder room, two 42" HDTVs (one in the living room, one in the bedroom), a large master bedroom with a separate dressing area complete with a wall of closets and vanity table and one ginormous master bathroom with a walk in shower and separate tub, dual sinks with marble vanities, built-in mirror TVs and Bulgari toiletries.
And for the serious techies staying in the suite, you can allow your PDAs to be viewed on the HDTVs. There's also DVD players, iPod docking stations and desks with built-in power and data connections. Way better than what we found at the MGM Grand.
Staying in an executive suite will also get you access to the hotel's Club Lounge on the same floor. But you will have to have serious money to stay here. Rates for the executive suite start around $1,500 a night. Meanwhile, regular rooms start at $399 a night.
