Marriott is Bringing Yet Two More Hotels to LA Live
Perhaps downtown Los Angeles' LA Live complex should change its name to Marriott Live. That's because come summer of 2014, there will not only be a Ritz-Carlton and a JW Marriott across from the Staples Center, the Nokia Theater and the Grammy Musuem but a Residence Inn and a Courtyard By Marriott as well.
The groundbreaking on the project at Olympic and Francisco Street, right across from the other two Marriott hotels, will happen today. When it's all finished, both the 174-room Courtyard hotel and the 218-room Residence Inn will be under the same roof.
The hotel hybrid will also have meeting rooms, a restaurant and to fit in with the neighborhood, a 3,000-square-foot electronic sign on the exterior.
Of course, we'd never knock newer nicer places to stay in downtown but hello, Starwood? Hyatt? Hilton? Anyone else interested in opening here? Just wonderin'....
