900 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA  90017 

Opened this past June, the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown offers breathtaking visuals of Los Angeles from the tallest building west of Chicago. At 73 stories high, it rises 1,100 feet above street level. The hotel was designed to capture the Southern California lifestyle at its finest – sophisticated, edgy and metropolitan. Interactive art and design features stretch from the 31st floor, where the hotel begins, to the 73rd floor. 

La Boucherie on the 71st floor is an elegant steakhouse with a French twist. French classics, premium steaks and seafood, a cheese atelier, charcuterie cave and an intense 1,200 bottle wine list are among the stars of the show – along with the view, of course. 

Perched atop InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown’s 73rd floor is Spire 73, the tallest open-air bar in the Western Hemisphere. This rooftop lounge offers breathtaking views of the entire city, chic fire pits, signature cocktails and a wide selection of whiskey, as well as culinary expressions to rival the view.
