Hidden Los Angeles Gems
In this amazing and beautiful city of Los Angeles there are a few hidden spots that I adore. One is the Century City Plaza Hotel, a beautiful example of Mid-Century Modern architecture and a real hidden gem. As you walk through the lobby, past the bar and continue out the back doors, you will be on the hotel grounds. They have tables and chairs set up with an amazing view of West Los Angeles. The hotel sits on a hill, you might never know it unless you were to walk into this tropical Los Angeles style paradise. A few times I've gone our party was the only one on the patio. Extra nice at sunset.
It is in the works to have this hotel torn down and replaced with a few new skyscrapers. So, I plan on going soon to enjoy this hidden spot a few more times, at least while it is still an option.
