Downtown's Double Marriott Hotels Open in June

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — The Downtown Los Angeles hotel stock is set to increase by nearly 400 rooms next month.

That’s because officials representing Portland-based developer Williams/Dame & Associates have announced that the dual Marriott hotels tower near L.A. Live and the Convention Center will begin receiving guests in June, with an official grand opening scheduled for July 1. The $172 million project from Williams/Dame and Seattle-based American Life Inc. is on time and on budget.

The 23-story edifice will contain two separate hotels that share a lobby: a 174-room Courtyard by Marriott and a 218-room Residence Inn. Both are Marriott brands, and join the company’s nearby 1,001-room J.W. Marriott and Ritz-Carlton (Marriott owns the Ritz as well).

The property at 901 W. Olympic Blvd., designed by Portland’s GBD Architects, includes a rooftop pool and deck, a conference room, a fitness center, a 3,600-square-foot meeting room and a restaurant.

The hotels have begun accepting reservations at courtyardlalive.com and residenceinnlalive.com.
