Hot List 2011

The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles, California

Tel: 213-743-8800
Massages, $120-$390

What: A cloudlike second-floor spot in downtown Los Angeles's LA Live hotel, cinema, and arena complex.

The look: Separate women-only and coed relaxation rooms have opalescent leather chaises, silver-on-white wallpaper, and pale patchwork pony-skin carpets. (The coed room butches things up with a flat-screen TV.)

Who goes: Hollywood bigwigs primping for awards shows, and singers and athletes prepping for performances at the nearby Staples Center and Nokia Theatre.

The treatment: The menu hews to the effective: The Renovator Body Polish starts with a sunflower seed scrub, followed by a body wrap designed to firm and detox, a shoulder and scalp massage, and a silky Carita body lotion rub.

P.S.: Nosh is minimal here, so walk to the JW Marriott lobby for snack bar panini before your treatment.
