Conrad Hotel Downtown Los Angeles Opening 2022

Conrad Hotel Downtown Los Angeles Opening 2022

14

It has been revealed that Hilton’s luxury Conrad brand will be making its debut in California next year.

Conrad at The Grand LA details

The Conrad Los Angeles will be opening in 2022 at The Grand LA. The hotel will be located in downtown Los Angeles, and will feature 305 guest rooms spread across 28 floors.

The Conrad will feature an elevated indoor & outdoor lobby with views of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, a 16,000 square foot rooftop terrace with a pool deck overlooking downtown, a spa, a gym, several dining outlets, and 12,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

For those not familiar with The Grand LA, this is a new billion dollar mixed-use development designed by Frank Gehry. It will feature 176,000 square feet of retail and dining space, more than 400 residences (in a separate 39 floor tower), and a public plaza with landscaped, open terraces.

The Conrad DTLA isn’t yet bookable, so we don’t have a sense of an exact opening date (beyond 2022), or the pricing or points requirements for a stay here.

How this fits into Hilton’s LA portfolio

I’ve gotta say, Hilton is really doing quite well when it comes to luxury hotels in the Los Angeles area. In addition to the new Conrad in downtown Los Angeles, the company also has:

The new Oceana LXR in Santa Monica

Beyond that, Hilton has literally dozens of other hotels in Los Angeles.

As far as this new Los Angeles property goes, there are pros and cons to downtown, and there’s no denying that the area has improved over the past couple of decades. While I like visiting downtown, personally it’s not where I prefer staying, though this does seem like a good option for those who are visiting the area.

When it comes to luxury hotels in downtown Los Angeles, the closest competitor is probably the Ritz-Carlton, located at LA Live.

There’s also a Ritz-Carlton in downtown Los Angeles

There’s also supposed to be a Park Hyatt opening in downtown Los Angeles eventually, but that project has had serious issues. The development was announced in 2016, but construction at Oceanwide Plaza has been stalled for a few years now, and there’s no end in sight, at least last I checked.

The Chinese development company behind the project was having issues with late payments and mechanics liens, and couldn’t maintain sufficient capital. So if the Park Hyatt Los Angeles does end up opening, it’ll be at least a couple of years down the road, and that’s probably even optimistic.

Bottom line

A 305-room Conrad hotel will be opening in downtown Los Angeles in 2022. The hotel will be located at The Grand LA, a new mixed-use development. This is a very nice luxury addition to Hilton’s portfolio, as Hilton will now have luxury properties in downtown, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica.

What do you make of the new Conrad DTLA? Would you consider staying there?

    I was looking forward to the Equinox Hotel as well as a second Equinox Club location in DTLA. The Hudson Yards location is awesome.

    Interesting location - most hotels of this size would be in the Convention Center/LA Live section of DTLA. However, as others have noted, there are world-class museums in the immediate area (Broad Museum and MOCA, and some great cultural museums/precincts a short walk away), as well as the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Mark Taper Hall and Ahmanson Theatre. Exciting to have the Conrad open!

    That first picture with the “room rendering” has a view that is not accurate at all. It was probably a shot from a drone. This is what you would see if you built a ~60 story tall building near 6th and Broadway. This isn’t what the Conrad view will look like.

    I believe the original plan was to open an Equinox Hotel in this complex as it's backed by Related Companies. I guess Related didn't have faith in the Equinox brand for a hotel and turned to Hilton/Conrad instead.

    I stayed at the Oceana a couple of weeks ago and had a great stay. Used a weekend cert and was upgraded to their nicest room as a Platinum. The food options were tasty as well. It looks like it was an apartment complex prior, with a middle courtyard where the pool is located. Service was LA typical meh, but I could care less.

    Next to the disney concert hall is an art museum. That would be an amazing view to wake up to. It’s really easy to get lost in dtla when driving. That property is close to a tricky part of Figueroa st with various ramp entrances. Take it easy on your Uber driver. It took me 2 yrs to master downtown LA. And walk to la live / staples center please or provide a hotel shuttle for your guests.

      The Broad Museum is opposite. The museum of contemporary art and Colburn school of music are adjacent. The plan is to extend the Colburn to the rear of the the hotel, with an additional concert hall. Disney Hall and The Music Center for the LA Philharmonic, LA Opera and Center Theater opposite, so it’s a great location. In fact it’s better to walk around DTLA.

    2. D3kingg

      I was thinking of the Broad. Just that Figueroa is a one way street. Much easier for everyone to just walk around. An Uber or Taxi driver will have to hop on a freeway and merge twice or hit seven street lights instead of someone just walking 1.4 miles along Figueroa which is an excellent neighborhood.

    Interesting. This was originally supposed to be an Equinox Hotel. The development was built and managed by Related, who owns Equinox.

    Lucky I come here directly to the blog and it looked like you hadn't posted in 3 days. Had to find new content by going to the horrible main page. Needs to be fixed!

    Hyatt had better pick up the pace in LA!

    Glad to see the Los Angeles hotel scene is finally catching up to the Indianapolis hotel scene

    For some reason, every time I've come to OMAAT these past few days, there was always an article published less than a minute ago. I guess I have a telepathic connection with OMAAT ;)

      @ JB -- Hah, I appreciate how often you check OMAAT! :)
