Marriott to Launch Dual-Branded Property in Downtown L.A.

The dual-branded Moxy Downtown Los Angeles and AC Hotel Downtown Los Angeles complex is slated to open April 12, 2023. Offering 727 bedrooms in all, the hotels will bring a 37-story addition to the city skyline, in addition to 12 dining and entertainment venues and 13,000 square feet of meeting and events space.

The dual-branded hotel is located on the corner of South Figueroa and Pico streets, directly across from the Arena and Los Angeles Convention Center. The Moxy will offer 380 guestrooms, while AC Hotel will offer 347 guestrooms.

Moxy and AC Hotel Downtown Los Angeles were brought to life by architecture firm Gensler and design studio Yabu Pushelberg. Gensler’s 37-story structure consists of an L-shaped tower, one side for Moxy and the other for AC Hotel, sitting atop an eight-story podium wrapped in a 15,000-square-foot live LED screen.

For Moxy Downtown L.A., the lobby has an open ceiling and a "jumble" of design elements, including a retro-style motorcycle and sidecar. The snake motif on the lobby carpet connects to the snakeskin-clad bar in the adjacent Bar Moxy. A mezzanine level is home to two Meeting Studios along with additional seating, including oversize lounge chairs; vintage arcade games, an armadillo-shaped LED neon sculpture and a DJ booth.

The 380 bedrooms at Moxy Downtown L.A. have floor-to-ceiling windows, distressed leather headboards and space-saving furniture and storage solutions. Industrial-chic bathrooms, lined in iridescent copper tile, offer a rain shower and an elongated sink carved from lava stone.

In contrast, AC Hotel Downtown L.A. was designed as an artist’s loft. AC Hotel guests ascend in elevators to the Sky Lobby on the 34th floor, where they are greeted by a sculptural redwood reception table and views that stretch all the way to Hollywood Hills. Adjacent to the reception area is the AC Library with a black steel fireplace as a visual focal point.

Designed with an open-plan concept, AC Hotel’s 347 guestrooms have platform beds with a leather headboard, an integrated bench, closet and oversize desk, and artwork. Dividing the living area from the bathroom is a full-height mirror and integrated stone sink/vanity that seems to float over the shelves below.

Guests at Moxy Downtown LA and AC Hotel Downtown LA have access to 12 F&B venues. Bar Moxy is the lobby bar and all-day café. Just off the lobby, and with its own entrance on South Figueroa Street is Bluestone Lane Coffee Shop. AC Hotel’s 34th-floor AC Bar & Lounge serves breakfast, dinner and drinks. Its La Lo La Rooftop offers Spanish-style tapas and specialty cocktails. Both hotels will share Level 8, a dining, drinking and entertainment concept, opening later this spring.
