A business-friendly neo-pyramid in a corporate setting.
Nestled between Century City’s office towers and adjacent to the sprawling 20th Century Fox movie and TV studio, this InterContinental offers its mostly business guests comfort, resort-style amenities and the convenience of a prime Westside location. The dramatic, circular entrance and glass-walled lobby are imposing. Contemporary guest rooms are oversized by most standards and have useable private balconies. Bathrooms are spacious, too, with separate shower and tub. Views can be impressive, particularly those facing west or those looking toward the Hollywood Hills. Within walking distance is the outdoor Westfield Century City Mall, which has dozens of shops, a gleaming and upscale food court and cinemas. The Spa InterContinental is an ultra-urban oasis featuring Zen-inspired villas, each with its own secluded patio and soaking infinity tub. Spa services here are top-notch; book in advance for weekend treatments. The busy gym overlooks the outdoor pool and hot tub; inside there is a steam room and sauna in the men’s and women’s locker rooms. A creative menu at Mari Los Angeles presents excellent California cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Weather permitting, guests can dine outside on the restaurant’s quiet patio.
