Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GK27 Great stay but time for a makeover
Another great stay at the Intercontinental LA. The staff are terrific as is the hotel's location and the availability of a house car. The lobby bar is a great place to relax but the restaurant/breakfast room needs a major makeover as do the guest rooms. The management should take a good look at the Cafe Opera at the Intercontinental Sydney or the restaurant at London's Intercontinental to see how it should be done. The breakfast was very disappointing - especially compared with that available at the Intercontinental Dubai or Berlin, both of which are real standouts. Overall, great potential but you need to spend some money on the place!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PennyABS Good business hotel
I stayed in the IC Century City in early March for one night. I choose the location as it suited my business needs. The hotel is very good quality, with an elegant lobby area ideal for more informal meetings. I found all the staff helpful, although was a little disappointed at how long it took to arrange my room having just travelled for nearly 15 hours. I sat in the lounge for nearly two hours waiting for a room, and had to keep asking for an update on when my room would be ready. I did arrive an hour or so earlier than recommended check in time, so I was aniticipating a bit of a wait for my room, but not that long. The room I was allocated was very spacious and clean with good amenities.
The hotel is also close to Century City Mall, which houses a number of top brand stores in an 'open air' environment as well as two department stores and a number of good and well-patronised restaraunts. It is an easy three-block (safe) walk from the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ogsplash Staff Great - Walls a bit thin
Checked in and we were upgraded to ta luxury suite I think it was. A nice large suite with everything you need. Staff were excellent - from the driveway attendants to the concierge to the checkin people. Hotel has a nice ambience. Restaurant was good also.
Only negative comment is the sound proofing between rooms. From our bedroom we could hear the couple next door talking and the eventual argument was a goodie. The point being that really, in a hotel like this, we shouldn't be able to hear the other guests in their rooms - especially when they are talking at normal volume.
Overall though, great stay, great staff.

From the moment we arrive, our experience begins.
David the Bell Man welcomes us back and whisk-away
our luggage, so that Enga at the Front Desk can efficiently
check us in, always insuring we stay in our favorite
room and that all our needs will be met during each stay.
It's no wonder we stay here often 'our home away from home' .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thankful2014 Thank You!
It means the world to me to express how appreciative and grateful to all the individual men who manage the arrival and departure of the guests. They made the arrival and departure of my stay March 4th and 5th the most comfortable and memorable part to such a lovely and well known hotel, it was by far the best part of my stay. They all showed care, respect and professionalism to ensuring that me and all the guest I saw them attend too feel at home. They were a true example of how the outside can sometimes far exceeds the inside of a hotel. I'll never forget these gentleman... And I so graciously thank them for their kindness, especially their professionalism. A hand shake only says so much, so I would appreciate the hotel sharing this review with them. I'm the one you helped upon my arrival, and when I needed the hotel's beautiful car to get around on Tuesday, and the person you checked on when you wanted to ensure I was ok while waiting on my shuttle car to take me back to the airport. Thank you for making me smile and feel most comfortable during my wait. You're all awesome!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nmfon Good stay, but poor service following check-out
This was my second stay at the Intercontinental Century City, and I have no complaints about the rooms or amenities. The breakfast was fine but the buffet could use improvement in it's presentation. The valet is very expensive and when paying such a high fee it is totally unacceptable to have to wait 25 minutes to receive my car, and have several other guests get theirs after requesting their vehicle after me.
But my biggest complaint was the (still unresolved) issue with my bill. As a platinum ambassador I receive one free in-room movie, and this was confirmed upon check in and check out. However, the final charge to my credit card still included the in-room movie, even after the receptionist told me he had remove it. Upon reviewing the charge after returning home I immediately contacted the hotel by email and phone, and each time was put through to the billing department where my call was not answered. I left messages 4 days in a row, and even left two messages with the hotel call desk. One female receptionist even promised to call me back personally if the billing department manager did not contact me. I have not heard from anyone, and my credit card has not been reimbursed the charge. I have also taken this up with the ambassador services. In all my years staying at Intercontinental properties, this is by far my worst experience. After such a memorable first stay 2 years ago, I will not be returning to this property in the future and will not recommend it to anyone I know traveling to the Los Angeles area.

The staff at this property are AWESOME. I would like to especially mention Danielle at the front desk, David- the hotel driver & David the bellman. David the bellman provide his undivided attention to us the moment we arrive until we entered into the corner suite. David the driver provide excellent service & gave great suggestion in/ out of the area. Very professional & detailed. Danielle at the front desk took care of most of our request that we had in the area- located a very special bottle of wine for my husband & I. Can't wait to return.
Thank you ALL!!

The high price for it should come with better service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalGal18 Great Service, Room Description Misleading
Service from staff was impeccable, but I was disappointed in our room. We paid extra to upgrade to a room with a "Sundeck," but it really should just be called a "deck," without the "sun." Even with clear skies and sunshine, the location of our deck only put it in direct sunlight between the hours of 7-10 a.m. This is great if you plan to get up early to lay out and tan before starting your day, but not ideal if you want a private place to lounge around in the sun in the afternoon. The wall of the floor above us obstructed the sun from reaching our deck at any hour of the afternoon. The pool deck was a decent alternative, but did not provide us with the privacy we paid extra to receive.
The excellent service was enough to make me give it another try, but this did taint my experience. Also, found a dirty sock in our closet apparently left from a previous occupant, and the ironing board was old and rusty. It turned my hands brown when trying to close it to put it away.

Adrian Craig Aziz is amazing, she provides a superior level of customer- she is one of the main reasons we stay at the property .
David the Bell Caption always welcomes us upon our return, the front desk staff are welcoming.
If there is anything thing that needs improvement, it would be:
- provide more guest towels in guest rooms & bath amenities
- better tv/ cable selections

I love this hotel and I have stayed here several times that for me it feels like home.the staff at the reception(Elyssa) was so welcoming that it even felt like family. The rooms are very nice and the location is great. However,I like to draw your attention that housekeeping were very late in fixing the room and they overlooked some of the amneties (like they did not replenish the coffee for the coffee machine)Otherwise , everything else was perfect

Service was AWFUL. I was ignored at check in while agent was on the phone. Not told about internet code that was buried in key folder, nor told were the elevators were. (Down the hall, make a left). Dont waste money on $30 breakfast buffet. The service there was non-existent. Had to flag down someone just to order something off the menu or get coffee refill.

Thank you! I love this hotel and have been a regular for many years. I love that the staff are constant (remembering me) and that even though I used reward points this time I was treated exactly the same and given a wonderful room.
This hotel is everything I want.
I'll be back as soon as I can. Thanks again, Diane

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Schubs10 What a really comfortable Hotel - WOW
The Interconti Century City was an excellent choice by my wife and myself. The staff was very helpful from the staff at the Concierge desk, to the reception desk and last but not least Ms. Galina from Guest Services. These guys are real assets for the Hotel and they are largely responsible how the impression of the visit to the Hotel are shaped.
My wife and myself used the Interconti as our base before and after our two-week Hawaii cruise. Looking at it in retrospect, we felt we should have rather stayed the two weeks at the Hotel and did not bother with the Cruise.
The Hotel even offers a complimentary car service to the near surrounding and transfer station (Hop-on Hop-off Bus) and that has been really helpful.
The only downside during our stays was the choice of music in the breakfast dining room. This sounded very much like a reminder of a funeral parlour.
We will definetly visit the Hotel again and i look forward to future visit at the Intercontinental in Los Angeles.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CharlesSD Tired Property in need of a face lift!
I've NEVER had this happen to me before. At check in, I was informed that I was booked for a standard king room. I let the front desk rep know that I had made a reservation for a room with the Sun Deck. She told me I was wrong and that I had booked a standard room. She said I even had the standard room price of $249. I pulled up my reservation and it showed Sun Deck and a rate of $299. She then told me that they don't have a Sun Deck available. I let her know that is when hotels generally upgrade and that it's not normal to downgrade a reservation. Another front desk rep checked me into a Sun Deck room on the side of the hotel where the sun doesn't shine and the room smelled like a combo of cigarettes and cheep air freshener. I then came back down and got a standard room. The room was TIRED and in need of a renovation. Seriously, there is a hose coming out of the toilet tank with a spray head on it. Really, an Intercontinental Hotel has a douche attached to the toilet using toilet water?
I travel all the time and have never thought your hotel brand would be so poorly represented as this hotel. It made me not want to stay at another Intercontinental hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Uncomfortable bed and poor coffee service
We asked for foam pillows and only received two more feather pillows. The mattress needs replacing. It sinks in the middle. Our coffee wasn't replenished the second day and we were forced to order room service and it was a ridiculous $22 charge for a small pot of coffee. The Concierge was helpful and the valet service was good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LA VIsitor Thought it would be better.
We were surprised by the lack of "deluxe" in the deluxe king suite. The bathroom sink is tiny -- with limited space around it for one's toiletries. One of our bedside lamps didn't work and then we realized that it wasn't plugged in. then we couldn't find our tv remote which was finally found under the bed. tv didn't work because that wasn't plugged in! if we wanted to do maintenance work, we would have stayed home! AND - when 2 people are in a room, can't they have 2 robes in the closet? Again --- this was supposed to be a deluxe suite...On the positive side, the breakfast buffet was plentiful and the servers were very attentive.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leone Good Hotel
Our disappointment was that there was not an Ambassador Club check in. It was not mentioned to us and we only heard about an Ambassador staff member at the time of check out, just by accident - by overhearing another guest. There is no Ambassador Lounge and we had no contact with an Ambassador Staff member at all.
There is a staff member in a small room, offering tea and coffee but we were not told about this. First IHG Hotel we have visited where we were not made to feel special by being Ambassador members.
Apparently she was not on duty when we checked in, but nobody told her of our arrival. She did apologise she didn't know we were staying there.

We were staying in the suite with a separate living room. The floor plan was great, huge bathroom. Beautiful hotel, very nice area.
The only reason I scored low for cleanliness is because there was a black blob on the carped in the living room (~6" diameter), and the door handle was not working right from the inside.

The Intercontinental was a great central location, beautiful lobby, lounge, pool. Rooms were spacious and very quiet and comfortable. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. We thought we lost a suitcase at the car rental but they insisted it wasn't there. The bellman called and told me he remembered placing it deep in the trunk and insisted we go back to car rental to find it and sure enough suitcase was still in the trunk. Would have lost the suitcase without his help. Wedding was elsewhere but we had a post wedding brunch in the glass lounge which was delicious and outside garden was a beautiful place to relax. Great place to stay in LA.
