Update: The web site was taken down shortly after this post went up. From the web site, seemingly launched to seek investors: "A brand new Marriott Hotel L.A. is being developed by American Life Inc., the Marriott Corporation and William & Dame Development. This co-branded hotel project consists of 180 Courtyard by Marriott hotel rooms and 197 Residence Inn by Marriott rooms, extended-stay accommodations with kitchen and business office. This $118 U.S. million project is scheduled to open March of 2014....The location of the hotel is in a neighborhood commonly referred to as "LA Live" entertainment center."
