Although the Century Plaza has one of the best spas and hair salons in the city, it is not a luxury hotel. It is, however, a great place to stay downtown and relatively new decor is light and modern. Regular studios and suites have large kitchenettes, while the corporate suites look like a CEO's tower office. Beyond Restaurant and Lounge is the hotel's newest addition, a gorgeous space that serves alluring contemporary cuisine. Check the website for deals where a spa treatment or night out is thrown in for less than the room-only rate. A comedic bonus for guests: Yuk Yuk's comedy club is on the ground floor.
