A Cultural Epicenter
Set on the former backlot of 20th Century Fox Studios, Fairmont Century Plaza has a long history as a cultural epicenter. Originally deemed “The Hotel of the Future,” Century Plaza has always been home to industry disruptors, beloved Hollywood stars, American presidents, cultural trendsetters, and those just looking to bask in the energy of it all. Major moments in history have taken place in our storied ballroom from the Emmys to the Grammys to presidential state dinners. In fact, the hotel was known as the “Western White House,” as it was President Reagan’s preferred hotel on the West Coast and has hosted numerous past presidents over the years. Fairmont Century Plaza’s place in history remains unshakable.
