Following a $75 million renovation, Sheraton Grand Los Angeles debuted April 27 as a rebranded property that is keeping pace with all that is fascinating and trending downtown. Upgrades include the complete renovation of all 496 guest rooms and suites, and a refresh of the lobby and meeting spaces.

The emergence of the Sheraton Grand brand is part of the Sheraton 2020 initiative, designed to position Sheraton as a leading global hotel brand. Formerly known as Sheraton Los Angeles Downtown Hotel, the newest Grand is one of 24 in the brand’s  premier tier of hotels.

“Sheraton Grand Los Angeles has become a shining star and wonderful representation of not only the Sheraton Grand tier, but of the brand itself,” says Dave Marr, global brand leader for Sheraton Hotels & Resorts. “It’s exciting to see how this hotel has completely transformed, representing the Sheraton brand’s new elevated and customized approach to design, as well as its Sheraton 2020 efforts.”

Sheraton Grand Los Angeles offers 30,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, with 26,000 sq. ft. part of the renovations. The 10,000-square -foot California Ballroom accommodates 900.

The redesign was led by internationally renowned interior and product designer Colum McCartan of McCartan.

“It goes without saying that the hotel team and management put a lot of time and passion into elevating Sheraton Grand Los Angeles to become a true flagship property for the brand,” said Jonathan Litvack, general manager of Sheraton Grand Los Angeles. “Downtown Los Angeles is going through a full resurgence with businesses flocking to the neighborhood, which is buzzing with new restaurants and retailers every day. It is important more than ever for our hotel to exceed guest expectations from both a design and service culture perspective.”

Sheraton Grand Los Angeles is adjoined to the Macy’s Plaza. The property is walking distance to such meeting, cultural and entertainment attractions as Los Angeles Convention Center, Staples Center, Museum of Contemporary Art and Disney Concert Hall.
