InterContinental Los Angeles Century City
- What's Included
I loved it! Service was excellent, I've traveled a ton over the last 10 years both domestically and internationally and that was the best room I have ever stayed in. Staff was top notch and impressive. I've been to LA a handful of times and this was the very first time I've been "wow'd" over anything out there.
Located on Avenue of the Stars in Century City near Beverly Hills, this IC is one of two in LA, the other being located downtown. Whilst the property looks a little dated from the outside, inside has been neatly refurbished in the elegant but assertively corporate way that is typical of ICs. The lobby looked particularly attractive with a purple and yellow colour scheme, comprised of geometric rugs, mood lighting and an outstanding floral display from which wafted the nicest of fragrances. Check-in was completed quickly; my Ambassador status was acknowledged and a late checkout was proactively offered. We were upgraded two categories from a Superior room to a Studio Suite, which featured a separate mini work and living space, and a small balcony with expansive views across Fox Studios to Santa Monica and the Topanga State Park in the distance; the sunsets in particular were noteworthy. The Ambassador fruit plate and water was placed in the room beside a welcome letter, although the water wasn’t replenished on the second day (aside from as part of the turndown service). There was no gift, although welcome points were added to my account which I suppose counts as a gift. As is common in the US, there was no kettle in the room; housekeeping delivered one promptly on request so that we could enjoy proper tea (courtesy of the Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver where we'd stayed previously on this trip) rather than the Keurig capsule tea in the room. Other slight niggles were found in a chipped bedside table and the usual lack of master light switch by the bed, although there were plenty of USB and power sockets. The bathroom, whilst reasonably sized, was pretty dated with a notably small shower cubicle with time-dulled fittings, awkwardly placed near the Toto toilet. The usual IC Agraria amenities were present; whilst pleasant enough I am rather tiring of them after several recent IC stays. The water was the softest I’d ever experienced; really quite unpleasant.LA is famed for being a near un-walkable city, and this was certainly true of the neighbourhood around our hotel - not from a safety perspective, but rather from a sheer lack of anything going on perspective. This wasn't a surprise to me of course, so with dusk approaching and no desire to get in a car to travel to a restaurant we explored the hotel for half an hour or so before returning to the room for in-room dining with views of a stunning sunset.After a comfortable night’s sleep and a cracking 180 degree view to wake up to from the balcony, breakfast the next morning was taken in Mari, the hotel’s only restaurant. We were seated at a table in a daylight-flooded corner overlooking the hotel’s courtyard garden, conveniently close to the expansive buffet but private enough not to be overlooked. Service was good without being outstanding. Another solidly average in-room dining experience awaited that evening followed by an equally solid and slightly less average breakfast the next morning.
What would I ever do without Blanca...I was staying at the hotel and needed to stay an additional night...I was told by one person at the front desk that they were sold out and there was nothing they could do...Blanca over heard the conversation and came to my rescue not only did she find me a room for the additional night she also let me stay in the room I was in so that I was not inconvenienced ...wow! Can't say enough about Blanca going the extra mile!!!
Had an amazing stay at this property. Start to finish the hotel did everything to make this as special a stay as possible. Kudos to management for this stellar property and special mention to Elysia for taking the care to ensure we were treated like royalty and for prearranging a beautiful welcome gift for our arrival. This was a memorable stay from beginning to end and my wife and I both look forward to returning to Century City. The location of this hotel was perfect for us as well. IHG should be very proud of this hotel and the way it's managed. Thank you all for an amazing experience!
We have been staying at this hotel for over 20 years, it was a Marriott then a Hyatt and now an InterContinental. Many of the staff have been there since the Marriott and its a pleasure to go back and be welcomed by name.Its a good hotel for business or holiday. The rooms are very comfortable and well maintained. If you need any things such as an extra mirror, light, more towels or glass its available. There is a nice pool area. The restaurant offers an excellent breakfast to suit all nationalities. The location is great easy access to the beach, Beverly Hills or the restaurant district around the Melrose area. We would strongly recommend this Hotel .The Concierge is great and very helpful whether a restaurant or finding some activities to make your stay pleasant and interesting. We have in the past stayed elsewhere but this is the one we enjoy the most.
