    JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE
    Los Angeles, CA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2482 reviewsTripAdvisor (2482)

In terms of decor, rooms here take their inspiration from the California climate, boasting bright yellow and blue hues, along with 42-inch TVs, iPod docking stations and minifridges. And if you'd like to take advantage of the weather, the hotel beasts a rooftop pool (and adjacent bar).

    JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa
    Palm Desert, CA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2597 reviewsTripAdvisor (2597)
    Free WiFi

    You wouldn't know that you're in the middle of the desert at this resplendent resort. Lakes, pools and verdant golf greens surround the hotel. And you won't be hoping for an oasis to appear over the horizon  guests of the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, California, have access to a Starbucks, a Japanese steakhouse and four other eateries. Visitors love hitting balls on the two 18-hole golf courses and on the tennis courts. And for a more relaxing day, the resort boasts multiple pools, a whirlpool and a spa. Guest rooms here take their inspiration from the desert, with decor comprising warm red and brown hues, but those who hang their hats here are hardly roughing it. Each room comes a balcony, floor-to-ceiling windows, marble bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. Although this oasis is costly, especially when considering the added resort fees, JW Marriott frequenters happily fork over the cash for the luxuries they so relish (and perhaps save some with their Marriott Bonvoy points).

    JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square
    San Francisco, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2041 reviewsTripAdvisor (2041)

    Sitting about a block west of Union Square, this JW Marriott places guests conveniently at the heart of San Francisco. From here, travelers only have to walk a few blocks to find a tram, cable car or BART train to take them to the city's top sights. Although some recent visitors said the downtown location often comes with noisy nights, guests mostly praised the JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square for its friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Accommodations here come equipped with ergonomic work stations, flat-screen TVs and access to an on-site fitness center. Though the hotel is surrounded by a variety of neighborhood dining spots, previous guests suggested sitting down for dinner at the JW Marriott's Level III Restaurant, which serves shareable plates of California cuisine. What's more, this hotel rewards loyal patrons with free nights and other perks through the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    JW Marriott Santa Monica Le Merigot
    Santa Monica, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1615 reviewsTripAdvisor (1615)

    JW Marriott Santa Monica Le Merigot offers high-class accommodations with a side of the subtle luxury that has become paramount to the JW Marriott brand. This particular one, located along Santa Monica's picturesque Ocean Avenue, is also known for the romantic atmosphere of its in-house restaurant, Cézanne. Guest rooms here also appealed to visitors with warm neutral decor, balconies or patios, and high-tech amenities like iHome docking stations. But for the majority of visitors, it's the property's location that sets it apart from the competition. Guests loved that Le Merigot sits amid a variety of Santa Monica shops and restaurants. If you don't feel like hitting the town, sprawl out alongside the outdoor pool or indulge in a treatment at Spa Le Merigot. And because the property falls under the Marriott umbrella, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and use points while staying here.
