The InterContinental Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles

The InterContinental Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles is located at The Wilshire Grand Center.  At 1,100 feet, it’s the tallest building not only in Los Angeles and California, but the tallest west of the Mississippi River.  For years, the nearby U.S. Bank Tower had the distinction of the tallest building in L.A. at about 1,018 feet.

You have to go up 70 floors just to hit the main lobby of The Intercontinental.  It’s here where you’ll find the friendly front desk and concierge staff, as well as an inviting bar, which is buzzing with guests, as well as locals unwinding during/after work.

One floor down on the 69th, dine and drink at incredible spots like Dekkadance and Sora.  Of course both come with incredible views.  Dekkadance has a wide variety of menu items which includes Mediterranean pizzas, global cuisine, and a great dessert selection.  During our Glitterati Tours visit, we opted to have a glass of wine in the Dekkadance bar, before entering Sora next door.  Sora has some of the best priced all-you-can-eat-sushi in the city (look for even better specials on specific days).  Plus, you’ll face the city skyline as the conveyor belt in front of you delivers fresh cut rolls, edamame and other special treats.  You can also order directly off the menu for other delicious fish options. Have a special date?  Take them to one of the private booths looking north towards the mountains, Dodger Stadium and the Hollywood sign.

For a real special night, enjoy an elegant night at La Boucherie, which is a Wine Spectator award winning restaurant.  It’s a steakhouse with a French twist, and offers up several types of seating options.

Afterwards, take in Spire 73 on the 73rd floor.  It’s an open air bar, and just happens to be the tallest in the Western Hemisphere.  Again, views, views, views!
