"J.W. Marriott." Looks like it's ready, doesn't it. Although the tall tower next to it isn't closed up yet.

Looking at the J.W. Marriott -- where you'd expect to see the main entrance. It's not ready.

Looking at the "L.A. Live" plaza area. Note big loud speakers, and the advertising screens. Non-stop obtrusive advertising. Not a lot of places to stop and sit, but given the environment you wouldn't really want to.

Walking back to my car. The Holiday Inn is just across the street from the east side of the L.A. Live compound.
