InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown is located in the Wilshire Grand building, standing 73 stories tall in the core of Downtown’s historic, entertainment, financial, arts, and sports districts. Ideally placed at the heart of the revitalized, energy-charged urban center of the United States’ second-largest city, the hotel provides first-class hospitality that seamlessly intertwines with the fabric of the burgeoning Downtown area.
A New Los Angeles Icon
With its iconic sail and a 1,100-foot silhouette inspired by Yosemite’s Half Dome, InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown gives new shape to the L.A. skyline. High-speed double-decker elevators provide a 50-second ride to an innovative Sky Lobby on the 70th floor. The Sky Lobby greets guests with large, panoramic views along with art and design inspired by L.A.’s unique culture, delivering a distinctly elevated experience and transporting them into a different world at every turn. The top of the tower, imagined as a “city in the sky,” offers 360-degree views on the highest outdoor perch in the country, where global travelers and locals alike can mingle amongst some of the city’s most coveted lounges and restaurants.

InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown has a concept of worldliness that extends far beyond hospitality. To this end, the hotel is registered with the LEED® Gold for Building Design and Construction certification—a first in the Downtown area.
Every aspect of the building was designed with the goal of decreasing our footprint.
Building orientation, daytime lighting, high-performance glazing, and thermal energy storage all reduce energy use, while building materials are specified with recycled content and regional value.
Water-efficient landscaping that uses drought-tolerant species, drip irrigation, and improved controller efficiency decreases water used for irrigation by 50 percent from the baseline. Other noteworthy reduction features include specified indoor plumbing fixtures that result in a 30 percent reduction in water use.
The hotel also collects storm water in a 50,000-gallon storage tank for reuse in the building’s cooling towers. This both relieves the burden of storm water quantity on the city’s infrastructure and reduces the amount of water used for make-up purposes.
Additionally, hotel guest room pods were fabricated off-site and installed as a single component. This efficient construction practice reduces the amount of materials used for construction as well as the amount of waste generated.
As global citizens committed to socially responsible practices, InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown aims to uphold its rich tradition of worldliness for many years to come.
