Hyatt Regency Century Plaza
Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
First I went on roller coasters. then I walked around the simulated village.
And stayed at the Hyatt.
peale mitmekordseid katseid Hyatt Regency leidmiseks (lennuväli, Beverlu Hills, Downtown) ei uskunud taksojuht, et mind viimases oodataks. Ei oodatudki - oodati Mr. Kyllikit. Aitas võlusõna FAPIA ja taksojuht lahkus, tarinud mu kohvri reception'sse.
Oh my gosh! We just got back from a really amazing experince! We were going to the supermarket because we were running out of water bottles when we saw a sign on the side of the road. It said, Try out the new Maze! We went in, and there was this huge corn maze that we went into! Inside we needed to pick fruits to win, and I won a new cell phone! …
My mom and I were left in the hotel room alone because my dad took my brothers to the pool, and our babysitter had to go with them, so that my dad had extra help with them. They can be quite a handful! Anyway, we went to a nearby mall, and looked around. For one thing, we found the place was humongus! Inside, there was an enormus supermarket, and …
Good morning! I know my title says that there is adventure, but there hasn't been much going on lately. We just got in last night, so we haven't been anywhere. It's the first morning on our trip in California, and we are staying at the Century Plaza, a really nice hotel. My mom and dad got a little annoyed for bugging them at "6 in the morning," …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Los Angeles
This is my second stay ant the Century Plaza, this time for 4 weeks straight. Yes, it is on company business so I get a pretty good rate (not as good as Hotwire though). Also, my business is in the Century Towers so it is very convenient.
I have just returned from a five night stay at the Westin Century Plaza with my 17 and 19 year-old daughters. I agree with other readers about the astronomical charges for eating and drinking in the hotel and charging for the health suite. However we also booked with Hotwire and thought the hotel was absolutely beautiful for the $107 a night we paid. Being on a budget we had morning coffee in Starbucks!. Room was not huge but adequate with quality fittings and the bathroom was the best I have seen in a hotel (especially compared to the Hilton Anaheim that we later stayed at), full of marble, glass and mirrors. The terrraces and pool looked lovely but unfortunately the weather did not allow us to use them. The guidebook implied that Century City was a bleak commercial area but it was actually beautifully landscaped with office towers surrounded by waterfalls. We chose not to rent a car and, much to the amazement of locals, caught the bus right outside to Downtown, and just up on Santa Monica Blvd going either East to the beach or West to Beverly Hills & Hollywood. They were frequent and ran 24 hours. It was as convenient a location as any for most of the sights.
Top of it's class
What a beautiful hotel! I loved the "Heavenly Bed" with all white linens. Having a balcony with quality furniture was a bonus and the bathroom gave me plenty of room for "girl stuff". The location of this hotel is excellent, across the street from shopping and dining and I found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful. I was lucky enough to get this hotel for under a hundred dollars on Hotwire, but it's such a lovely hotel, I would try to stay here again, even if it cost me more.
We were at the Grammy Awards Feb 8 and stayed here 5 nites--WHAT A PLACE--very expensive but used the ENTERTAINMENT CARD(nice that they take it)--can't believe that the rack rates are $430--but with the card we got an OFFICE /GUEST ROOM for 230 a night--that gave us a high floor--18--and an extra easy chair and free phone calls...What it didn't get us was the free breakfast that WESTIN SAYS COMES WITH THIS RATE in their literature--the front desk knew nothing of this--but on the WESTIN web site these office guests rooms usually come with breakfast included...The room was lovely and large and the bathroom was big with a double headed shower and great amenities. The HEAVENLY BED was wonderful--and the view from the 18th floor was magnificent--as we were on the side with the skyscrappers of Century City. Great closets and safe--also they give you 2 newspapers...ROOM SERVICE expensive but no more than going out--great sandwiches...breakfast very expensive--continental 14.00 per person--so we went to the lobby bar and ate breakfast there with the great pastries and starbucks coffee--18 dollars for 4 pastries and 2 coffees is better than room service.. Pool lovely and grounds. Wonderful spa..Saw directors guild awards arrivals--saw SOPHIA LOREN, CLINT EASTWOOD, Dir. of Lord of the Rings, Angelica Houston--also saw AL GORE one day...WONDERFUL BEAUTIFUL HOTEL--and close to Beverly HIlls--15 min to Santa Monica Beach if traffic is light.
Just returned from an overnight here. We were very pleased since we booked on hotwire for only $107. (look for "4.5 stars, near a golf course") The room was quite nice, bathroom is upscale with clear glass vanity, interesting glass do-dads on the wall, beautiful sea foam green accent tiles, double shower heads, hammered silver accessories, etc.
Stayed for two nights in November. Everything is nice int he lobby and common areas. Didn't use the pool or restaurants. Tried to use Gym but it's attachede to the SPA and they want like $20 per person just to use the weights and machines...even for hotel guests! I thought this was excessive but apparently many of the Hotel - Spa places are charging guests these fees. Oh well. the rooms are small but well furnished. the best thing about every room is that they all have a balcony. Ours facd east towards Hollywood. The location is central to most places in LA but that's kind of mis-leading. LA is so large and spread out that there really is no central area.Overall I'd say this place rated 7.5 - 8 out of 10 stars.
I really enjoyed my stay and feel that the hotel is the best stay in LA. Many trendy places come and go, but the classic elegance of this hotel will always be in style.
I made two calls for requests from my room and both were followed up on quickly. Great service.
Valet is $22 day with in/out privileges. Self-parking in $14 per day with NO in/out privileges. No street parking exists near the hotel. So add parking to your necessary expenses.
Perks that I enjoyed are: Sunday paper delivered to my room (nice); Great hot tub and pool; lounging in the lobby bar; and the fantastic bedding.
Beautiful hotel, delicious food
Great service and Excellent Quality
My wife and I had the privilege of staying at the hotel recently for 3 days. The staff was very gracious and attentive, the accommodations were excellent. We enjoyed our large room and contrary to the previous review, we did have a coffee maker...with complimentary Starbucks.
A couple of things they can improve on are the menu selection and pricing for the Breeze restaurant. Portions are small and expensive, and there aren't many choices on the menu. Also, the bathroom and closet areas were a little tight for 2 guests...would been ok if a single guest in a room.
All in all, we had a wonderful time.
I spend one night a year at this hotel, one of the best known celebrity hotels in LA when I go to a Seminar. It is notoriously expensive, not only for the rooms, which are admittedly above average quality-wise, but especially the food and drink. (No coffee makers in the rooms.) This afternoon, when I stopped at the lobby bar, two ordinary glasses of ordinary house wine cost us $19.48. I am NOT making this UP!! Lunch- a couple of minute salads that looked like grass clippings...$9.00 each. Phone calls- collect or toll-free 800-number calls are nevertheless $1.50 each. Stay at the hotel only if you're on an expense account. Eat there only if you're on an expense account AND you don't care about bankrupting your company. You'll sleep well only if you're NOT paying the bill. Watch for celebrities- they're not paying their own way either. At these room prices, is it necessary to utterly GOUGE us for everything else TOO???
