Los Angeles, California
Fairmont Century Plaza
Re-emerging Los Angeles Icon
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
The future’s never looked so bright. After a highly anticipated $2.5 billion redevelopment of famed architect Minoru Yamasaki’s mid-century modern hotel, Fairmont Century Plaza has been completely reimagined to include 351 guest rooms and 49 suites, all with private balconies. The hotel also features 63 luxury residences and nearly 24,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The hotel’s design includes four dining options, Lumière – a modern American brasserie, Vignette – a casual grab-and-go café, The Bar at Century Plaza located in the main lobby, and the guest-only private rooftop pool and bar. The showpiece of Fairmont Century Plaza, the 14,000 square-foot Fairmont Spa Century Plaza brings a modern approach to time-honored wellness philosophies and practices.
Centrally located in the heart of Century City, the new Fairmont Century Plaza is conveniently near Los Angeles’ best neighborhoods and attractions. With its bustling cosmopolitan vibe, Century City is a walkable city within a city. Set on a former 1950s movie studio lot among glittering skyscrapers, trendy cafés and condo lofts, our backyard is home to entertainment industry giants, CAA talent agency and the legendary 20th Century Fox Studios. We’re just two blocks from Beverly Hills and a block away from one of LA’s most premier dining rooms and preeminent retail destinations, the open-air Westfield Century City shopping center.
Come for an urban escape or power lunch. Float in our pool atop the hotel overlooking the city skyline or retreat to our expansive spa and wellness center. Dance in our lavish ballroom and dine on the freshest California ingredients at our upscale brasserie. Meet with friends and colleagues in the center of it all. See and be seen. What are you waiting for?
