Marriott officially opened its latest Courtyard and Resident Inn this week, steps away from the Staples Center in L.A.'s resurgent downtown area.
The 23-story property contains both the moderately-priced Courtyard and the extended-stay Resident Inn. It's located across Olympic Boulevard from LA Live, the popular retail/sporting complex that opened last decade. The hotel contains nearly 400 rooms, conference rooms, and a beautiful pool with cabanas and views of downtown's skyscrapers. The grand lobby hosts two restaurants and a small plaza and jumbotron screen adorn the exterior. Rates run about $199 a night. See more pics below.
The hotel is within walking distance to the latest Ace Hotel and a forthcoming Big Gay Ice Cream store.
