Sure, Paris is renowned as the City of Lights but we think Los Angeles challenges the French capital in every way. This beautiful photograph of Century City (the Intercontinental Hotel is the ziggurat on the left, the Century Plaza is lit in red in the center, and Beverly Hills High School has a football game on the right) was taken from high atop the Mr. C Hotel just east of Century City. Our private luxury tour guests were happily back at their hotels after a day of sightseeing with us through Los Angeles and Hollywood. We had the pleasure of attending a Los Angeles Concierge Association (LACA) party at this recently remodeled boutique hotel and this was the view from the parapet outside the lounge. Were this Christmas eve you would certainly be able to see Santa Claus and his reindeer-powered sleigh flying through the clear December sky.
