General Manager Javier Cano cuts the ribbon to open the 123-room Ritz-Carlton at L.A. Live on Friday morning as hotel staff applaud.

Staff of the 123-room Ritz-Carlton at L.A. Live gathered outside the hotel's Georgia street lobby this morning to hold a ribbon cutting and open the doors to the next-to-last component in the entertainment complex's 1-billion tower.

The luxury hotel occupies floors 23 through 26, sandwiched between the 878-room JW Marriott below and the 223 condos, set for first move-ins this summer, that will take up floors 27 through 53.

Guests will check in at an intimate street-level lobby, after which they're taken to the hotel above. Included in those 123 rooms are 14 suites, one the 3,000 square foot Ritz-Carlton Suite, with a piano and entertainment room, media corner, lounge, kitchen and formal dining area.

Still a few days away is Chef Wolfgang Puck's WP24, which will offer Asian cuisine on the hotel's 24th floor. The restaurant could open as soon as next week, but a firm date has not yet been set.

On the 26th floor is the hotel's rooftop pool deck and lounge. While the JW's 4th-floor pool deck lounge, ION, is open to the public, the Ritz is strictly a guests-only affair. The same is true of the 23rd-floor Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge, which offers free breakfast, snacks, cocktails and business services to those who add an additional fee onto their room rate.

Looking to grab a room for opening night? They start at $419 per night, and can be reserved through the hotel website. While you can't book it for April 2, an Executive Suite will run a reasonable $2000 per night, or $2100 with access to the club lounge.
