This document presents a review of recent results for quarkonium production at the LHC from ATLAS, CMS, and LHCb. Production cross sections for J/ψ, ψ(2S), and Υ(mS), and production ratios for χc,bJ are found to be in good agreement with predictions from non-relativistic QCD. In contrast, spin-alignment (polarisation) measurements seem to disagree with all theoretical predictions. Some other production channels useful for investigating quarkonium hadroproduction mechanisms are also considered.
