My husband and I got married last year in LA because our families live mostly in that area. I'd stayed there a few times in the past and have been in love with that hotel since the first time. We had our ceremony in the outdoor plaza, and the reception in the California Ballroom. We hired a wedding consultant friend of ours to do the major planning, but she said that the hotel took care of almost every detail for us. We used their catering service and they were amazing. We wanted to have kosher meals for my family, but also offer items for others. They handled our slightly troublesome requests graciously. The food was perfect! They did all the decorating as well as the setup and teardown. We literally just had to show up. Their staff was warm and helpful every step of the way. The only disappointment was that we had a hard time booking it - they were full for many months beyond what we were hoping for. But it turned out they had a cancelation and we could hold our wedding just a little later than we wanted. I can't say enough great things about the Bonaverture. We also stayed there a few nights before and after the wedding, and the hotel is really one of the nicest ones I've ever stayed at. I highly recommend anyone looking for a venue to consider this one.
I recently coordinated a meeting for my company at the The Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites. I rented a conference room and the staff had my back from when I first called till we checked out. Other than the proximity to great restaurants and other attractions the hotel was a great place to host the meeting. The large conference and ball room was a beautiful setting for our meeting. It was elegant while functional. The staff was very polite, nice, helpful, and always had a smile. They really made everything simple especially in such a stressful situation. But they helped me through everything and made the meeting a great success. Everyone enjoyed the service and the room. One of the most unique things are the indoor lakes. We rented the California Ballroom which was huge yet affordable.They had a board of Executive Meeting Specialist who were at my side the whole time and meeting the demands of my guests. Everyone who attended enjoyed the atmosphere, which was very stress free and comfortable. The hotel did and excellent job of keeping the room a perfect temperature which kept my partners and I happy. It was also very convenient that they offered high speed internet access in the meeting room for a very small fee. The catering service was phenomenal, unlike any food I have had at a hotel before. Over all I would recommend The Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites to anyone.
The Bonaventure is right smack in the middle of Downtown Los Angeles. I have personally been the main conference rooms that they have about five or six times. Each experience at the hotel was at the bare minimum a very good time. I was never mistreated and always felt as if the hotel staff were trying to put their best food forward at all times.
