With the arrival of The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles, glamour has officially returned to downtown Los Angeles. The sleek glass exterior updates the iconic skyline, while interiors bring to mind L.A.'s famous Case Study houses, with their curves and clean lines. The hotel sits on the upper floors of a 54-story tower, and with just 123 guest rooms and suites, the ambience is SoCal pied-à-terre. Wolfgang Puck delivers Asian-influenced cuisine at WP24 restaurant, and a rooftop pool shows visitors why Angelenos loves their city — views stretch from the mountains all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
