Luxury digs with a taste of Times Square in Los Angeles

The Ritz Carlton brand is known for luxury accommodations and bar none service and the downtown Los Angeles location offers this and more. LA Live is home of the Staples Center, the Lakers and the Kings, a superb venue for concert performances and an abundance of bright city lights. This is all at your fingertips when you are a guest at the Ritz Carlton Los Angeles. There is a plethora of dining choices including Katsuya, Lucky Strike, and on the Ritz's 24th floor you'll find Wolfgang Puck's, The Nest at WP24. Oh and did we mention the views?  You'll relish in fantastic views everywhere from the Ritz including the rooms, suites, fitness center, pool and dining at WP24.

We stayed in a deluxe room with views of the Staples Center and beyond from the 23rd floor. Our accommodations had everything a discerning guest could ask for including access to Ritz Carlton's Club Level, where from 7am-10pm there is access to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, beverages and concierge services.

The pool is located on the 26th floor with comfortable chaises, and cabana facilities. Plus, if you're craving some food and cocktails, the pool area offers attentive service.

So next time, you're heading to a LA sporting event, concert or just want a shift from the beach, think downtown Los Angeles for something different.
