The dual-branded Moxy Los Angeles Downtown and AC Hotel Los Angeles Downtown are making progress toward their late 2022 opening, which will add 727 guest rooms across the street from the entrance to the L.A. Convention Center and half a block from Crypto.com Arena (formerly the Staples Center).
In the heart of downtown Los Angeles, the 37-story mixed-use tower will soon be the closest lodging for the convention center, with a 380-room Moxy hotel and a 347-room AC hotel. Both the Moxy and AC are among Marriott’s “select” brand budget segments. However, the AC is more upscale and aimed at business travelers while Moxie is targeting millennials looking for a more social experience.
Moxy and AC will share 13,000 square feet of meeting space, a 6,000-square-foot landscaped pool deck, 12 restaurant and bar concepts, and an 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a 300-car parking garage. Plans also call for the AC hotel to have a sky lobby with a terrace bar on the 34th floor of the tower, and for the building to be wrapped in a 50-foot high, 15,000-square-foot video display.
The L.A. Convention Center sits at the intersection of two highways, Interstates 10 and 110, and is 16 miles from Los Angeles International Airport, about a 30-minute drive.
