Ben and I recently attended an SPG Moments event at the Downtown Los Angeles Sheraton, where John Legend performed for about 200 of us. Doors to the event opened around 7:30 PM, we arrived shortly thereafter, and John Legend came on around 9:00 PM and performed until just after 10:00 PM. We were invited to the meet and greet as well, but we were tired and I find meet and greets a bit forced, although based on John’s performance I’d say he’s a genuine man.
As I mentioned, the SPG Moments event was held in the newly renovated DTLA Sheraton, which had a very chic, crisp library-turned-lobby complete with taupe leather tufted couches, 20+ foot ceilings, mahogany paneling with brass fixtures, and a marble espresso and coffee bar with frosted glass bottles up to the ceiling.
We were both very impressed by the taste and elegance, which gives us high hopes of the refresh the Sheraton brand is undergoing! If you’re interested in staying downtown the next time you visit LA, the Sheraton is more than worthy of consideration.
The event was held in two purple-lit rooms a few floors beneath the lobby. The first room, where guests mingled, drank, and had some light fare, was spacious, although seating was limited to nooks with a few couches and chairs.
