Review Summary



  • Fee per day for Wi-Fi
  • Fee per day for parking
  • Pet fee
  • Far from popular Los Angeles attractions

Bottom Line

This 364-room hotel in Century City, a commercial center for LA's TV and movie industry, features big rooms (starting at 425 square feet) with balconies and great views, free car service in a hybrid car, a sushi bar, and 24-hour room service. But room decor is a little bland, and the fitness center isn't as impressive as the Hyatt Regency's (although unlike the Hyatt's, it's free).
