Originally developed as part of the 20th Century Fox back lot, Century City delights visitors for its celebrity sightings, upscale restaurants, and wide variety of shopping options. As it is a frequent location for filming, don't be surprised if you find yourself in familiar territory as you tour the neighborhood. Century City hotels not only bring the glamour of Hollywood to you, but they put you in prime position to investigate the culinary, retail, and cultural delights of neighboring Beverly Hills and nearby Westwood.
Star Gazing in Century City
Getting to Century City is just a short shuttle or taxi ride from LAX. However, once you are in the area, take advantage of great deals on Century City car rentals so you have a set of wheels for your adventures. Jump in your rental, and cruise down Avenue of the Stars and adjacent streets. A major talent agency and Fox Plaza are separated by graceful palm trees, Los Angeles hotels, and spas. If Fox Plaza looks familiar, it is because much of it has been frequently featured in films and television for years—most famously in "Die Hard." Round the corner, and you will see the buildings and billboards of Fox Studios (and maybe even a famous face or two). Art lovers will want to add The Annenberg Space for Photography to the itinerary, followed by a lunch just across the park at one of the celebrity-chef-owned restaurants, where you can star gaze while noshing. Hotels in Century City are also ideally close to famous Rodeo Drive shops in Beverly Hills, as well as world-class live performances at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, or at venues like Royce Hall or The Geffen in neighboring Westwood. Being in Century City makes it all just minutes away.
