The hotel boom in downtown Los Angeles continues, with Starwood’s luxury lifestyle brand W Hotels planning to open a property there in early 2019.

The W Los Angeles Downtown will be part of a mixed-use project being developed by Shenzhen Hazens Real Estate Group across the street from Staples Center and the L.A. Live entertainment-retail district.

The hotel will have 250 guestrooms, 15,000 square feet of meeting space and a 5,000-square-foot spa.

W already has hotels in the Hollywood and Westwood neighborhoods.

The W will join a raft of properties under construction or expansion near L.A. Live in the southern part of downtown Los Angeles.

The 878-room JW Marriott will be expanded by 755 rooms via a new 38-story tower across the street. Two pedestrian bridges will connect the two buildings.

A  350-room Hotel Indigo is scheduled to open next year as part of Shanghai-based Greenland Group’s $1 billion Metropolis mixed-use project about a block north of L.A. Live.

And about five blocks north of there, a 900-room InterContinental hotel being redeveloped by Korean Air and Hanjin Group will open in 2017 at the site of the old Wilshire Grand.
