The Los Angeles Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel, one of the largest ballrooms in Los Angeles, is undergoing a $1.3 million renovation. The refurbished space will debut in January 2012, featuring new carpet, paint, wall coverings and a complete overhaul of the hotels’ original 1966 chandeliers for better lighting and visibility.

The renovated space includes the 25,000-square-foot Los Angeles Ballroom, the 23,000-square-foot California Showroom exhibition space and a series of break-out rooms totaling 7,500 square feet of event and meeting spaces. 

Masterminded by Design 360 Unlimited, the transformation was inspired by the works of Ernst Haeckle, a late 19th-century zoology professor known for his illustrations of organic life forms. 

“We combined some designs reminiscent of floral and coral structures,” said Dean Singer, president of Design 360. “But we also included some modern shapes to add a more contemporary spin that will enliven and energize the space.”
