Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles returns to centre stage on 27 September 2021 following a US$2.5 billion renovation.
The luxury hotel now forms part of a mixed-use development project consisting of two 44-storey towers for boutique shopping and 268 private residences. Fairmont Century Plaza’s 16 floors house an additional 63 privately-owned Fairmont residential units, as well as 400 guestrooms, including 49 suites.
“Fairmont Century Plaza will once again be THE Los Angeles hotel – just as it was when it opened to worldwide acclaim in 1966,” said Philip Barnes, Regional Vice President, Southern California and General Manager, Fairmont Century Plaza. “Working with our talented team to ensure the return of a beloved jewel in LA’s crown has been a career highlight. We look forward to welcoming locals and guests from all over the world into a reimagined and stunningly beautiful hotel with an exemplary level of service.”
Heather McCrory, CEO of Accor North & Central America, said: “The reopening of this Los Angeles luxury landmark is a milestone for both the brand and the city, as Fairmont is trusted to reimagine this storied icon following a $2.5b renovation and development project.
“The newest Fairmont is a flagship for the brand, offering a one-of-a-kind experience at the centre of it all in the famed Century City and setting the standard for future development projects in the region,” McCrory added.
The new Century Plaza returns with almost half the number of guestrooms, allowing for a larger, more luxurious footprint with spacious marble bathrooms and a balcony for every guest room and suite.
Fairmont Gold, the brand’s exclusive hotel-within-a-hotel experience, features 70 guest rooms and suites boasting private check-in and checkout; exclusive access to the exquisite Gold Lounge; and dedicated Personal Assistants offering 24/7 concierge service.
Lumière, crafted by EDG Design, is a traditional French-inspired brasserie that evokes the feeling of being transported to 1920s. The Bar at Century Plaza is the pièce de résistance of the hotel’s show stopping lobby, surrounded by a living green wall, floating fireplace and water feature. The lobby also features floor-to-ceiling windows that retract into the floor, creating a gorgeous open space filled with natural light and fresh air.
As a showpiece of the hotel, Fairmont Spa Century Plaza is reinventing wellness culture with offerings designed to unite ancient modalities of movement with state-of-the-art technologies. Through its doors lie nine treatment rooms, experiential rain showers, sanariums, aromatherapy steam rooms, a hammam, and a Himalayan salt room.
The Rooftop Pool offers unmatched views of Los Angeles, including the Pacific Ocean, the Getty Museum, and the Hollywood Hills.
