Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles opens Friday at L.A. Live complex [Updated]

The long-awaited opening of the Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles at the giant L.A. Live entertainment complex downtown happens Friday. But don’t get too excited just yet. Only 20 of the luxury hotel’s 123 rooms will be available while the rest get finishing touches, Los Angeles Times staff writer Hugo Martin reports.
“It’s fine-tuning,” Ritz-Carlton spokeswoman Vivian Deuschl said. The entire hotel was scheduled to open April 15, but Deuschl said guests were so excited about staying at the new spot that 20 rooms were being opened early.
WP24, the hotel’s restaurant by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, will open in mid-April.
[Updated 10:14 a.m.: An earlier version of this post stated that WP24 was scheduled to open in mid-May.]

The Ritz’s sister hotel, the JW Marriott, opened earlier this year next to the Ritz, which tops a 54-story tower that includes condominiums. In a review of the building in February, Los Angeles Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne expressed disappointment:

“As far as architectural ambition goes, though, the building makes a faint, even passive impression, despite the diverting patterns on its facade. It is more focused on operating as a glossy vertical marker for L.A. Live — and the tower is hard to miss from any of downtown’s freeways — than on exploring a fresh or idiosyncratic path for high-rise design in L.A.”
But Hawthorne did have kinds words for the building’s ground-level features, and he added:
“The Gensler architects also deserve credit for overcoming the building’s single biggest design challenge: how to squeeze two different hotels, plus 224 condominiums on two dozen floors, into the tower without sacrificing its identity as a single piece of architecture.”
[...]
— Jane Engle, assistant Los Angeles Times Travel editor
