Los Angeles icon to rebirth as Fairmont Century Plaza
Los Angeles, February 1, 2017

Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles is slated to reopen in 2018 as the massive mixed-use Fairmont Century Plaza, Los Angeles, after Fairmont Hotels & Resorts signed an agreement with Next Century Associates for the revitalisation and management of the historic property.


The approximately US$2.5 billion redevelopment project will bring about 394 guestrooms and 63 branded residences within the original iconic tower, along with two new 46-storey residential towers with 290 residences, plus approximately 9,290m2 of boutique high-street shopping and expanded parking facilities.

Built on the former backlot of 20th Century Fox Studios, the hotel faces the famous fountains at the intersection of Avenue of the Stars and Constellation Boulevard, and is surrounded by prime offices, residences, entertainment, dining and retail venues.


Said Kevin Frid, chief operating officer, North & Central America, AccorHotels: “The Fairmont brand was born in California in 1907 and now, after more than a century of building an international portfolio… we are thrilled to return to our roots and expand our presence in the Southern California region."


Fairmont Century Plaza will join Fairmont’s US portfolio including the flagship Fairmont Miramar San Francisco; Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa; Fairmont San Jose in Silicon Valley; Claremont Club & Spa, a Fairmont Hotel in Berkeley; and Fairmont Heritage Place Ghirardelli Square, San Francisco.


Fairmont continues to expand globally with recent openings including Fairmont Quasar Istanbul, Fairmont Chengdu and Fairmont Fujairah in the Middle East. New Fairmont hotels scheduled to open in 2017 in Amman, Jordan; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and Austin, Texas.
