Marriott-Ritz Carlton makes a glittering debut

The downtown Los Angeles skyline glittered as the Marriott-Ritz Carlton tower opened to the public yesterday night. The tower was expected to make a sparkling debut at night with lights in the city’s newest high-rise snapping on for the first time. Owners of the 54-story Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott tower rigged lights on the top 27 levels to flick on floor by floor in a rising wave to celebrate completion of the hotel, which is the last piece of the L.A. Live entertainment complex. This amazing light display was estimated to cost about $100,000! The most befitting way to celebrate the opening of the $2.5 billion tower, this new tower is no doubt the highlight of the city’s skyline.
