Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel Review

Los Angeles is known for its legends and the Fairmont Century Plaza is an iconic property in the heart of LA. Fairmont properties are some of my favorites combining comfort and sophisticated luxury in a unique setting specific to its destination. The Fairmont is one of the best destinations to book when planning a trip in Los Angeles. Here’s everything you need to know before you book a stay at the Fairmont Century Plaza.

The Fairmont is a luxury chain of resorts and part of the Accor Group. Their properties are known for their luxurious accommodations and unforgettable guest experience. The resorts all feel unique as the property connects the guest to their destination. Their impressive architecture, fun and sophisticated decor, and world class accommodations make for some of the best resorts around the world.

The Fairmont Century Plaza is located in Century City and adjacent to Beverly Hills and Santa Monica neighborhoods. The resort is a short 20 minute drive away from LAX and close to all of the action whether you are looking to visit downtown Los Angeles, the beaches, or any of the other famous neighborhoods of LA. 


As you arrive at the resort you will immediately feel the presence of this iconic property. The resort is beautiful inside and out and has stunning architecture and design. The property boasts a warm and fun lobby with a beautiful lobby bar to enjoy a cocktail and unwind. 

The entry glass facade actually has a moveable glass partition that goes underground to create an amazing open air environment. There is a beautiful restaurant on property to enjoy a great meal as well as a rooftop bar with stunning views of the Santa Monica Mountains and beaches. And of course, there is an amazing spa and fitness area for you to treat yourself to some health and wellness. 


The Fairmont Century Plaza has extremely spacious guest rooms and suites for you to enjoy whether you are visiting for business or pleasure. The rooms all have modern design and sophisticated touches while maintaining a cozy and comfortable atmosphere. Every detail in the room is thoughtfully designed from the stone finishes in the bathrooms to the plush bedding.

For an elevated experience you can book one of their suites which feature even more spacious accommodations and private balconies with sweeping views of Los Angeles. 

Additionally, you can experience Fairmont Gold which is their hotel within a hotel experience. This features exclusive access to a private lounge, daily breakfast, snacks, evening canapes and personal assistants for you to use during your stay. 


Lumiere is a great restaurant on property serving Parisian food. The entire atmosphere of this restaurant is authentic from the bar, to the dining room, to the outdoor garden courtyard area. This is the go to place for any of your meals including Happy Hour. 


Start your day with a workout in the fitness area featuring brand new equipment or treat yourself to some pampering at the Spa. The resort boasts a 14,000 Square Foot spa including a Himalayan Salt Room, Aromatherapy Steam Room, a rainfall style shower, and sauna. 


You can never go wrong with booking a stay at a Fairmont property. This is easily one of the better accommodations you can book in all of Los Angeles. It is centrally located to all of the action and in a beautiful and clean neighborhood.
