Westin Bonaventure Hotel, Los Angeles, US

The Westin Bonaventure Hotel is the largest hotel in Los Angeles, California, USA. It is 367 feet (112 m) tall and has 35 floors. Construction began in 1974, and was completed in 1976. The top floor has a revolving restaurant and bar. It was originally owned by investors including a subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Mitsubishi Corporation and Portman Cos. in Atlanta.

It is currently managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts (IHR). The hotel's architecture figures prominently in the work of literary critic and social theorist Fredric Jameson, who argues that it typifies the logic of postmodern social organization.
