Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Big rooms with iPod docks and flat-screen TVs
  • Large heated pool with bar service
  • Biggest gym in L.A., plus 18-room spa
  • Trendy bar
  • 24-hour room service
  • 24-hour concierge
  • Historic: has hosted celebrities and presidents

Cons

  • Wi-Fi fee per day
  • Fee for valet parking and fee for self-parking per day
  • Fee per day to use gym
  • Far from popular Los Angeles attractions

Bottom Line

This 726-room behemoth in Century City, the commercial hub of LA's entertainment industry, has contemporary rooms with iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and balconies (some with fantastic views). The pool is huge and the Equinox gym is the largest in L.A. -- but be prepared to pay if you want to use it. The nearby InterContinental has a less impressive -- but free -- gym, and bigger rooms.
