InterContinental Los Angeles Century City

Arrival/Check-In: Having been to the InterContinental Century City once before, I was prepared for the grand entrance as my car pulled in; and I was quickly helped with my things by numerous bellmen who directed me to the desk. With no wait, I received my key and directions to the elevators. At the late-afternoon hour, the lobby was abuzz with businesspeople enjoying cocktails at the bar and congregating before their evening plans.

Athens: A city that charms its guests and stirs their emotions

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
