Westin Century Plaza Creates Ronald Reagan Suite - 8,000-sq ft Suite Occupies Entire 30th Floor 
LOS ANGELES - Jan. 27, 1999--In honor of Ronald Reagan's upcoming 88th birthday on Feb. 6, 1999, the legendary Westin Century Plaza Hotel & Tower will unveil the Ronald Reagan Suite, a spectacular suite of rooms dedicated to the former President.
The Reagans' association with the Westin Century Plaza dates back to the hotel's opening in 1966 and has continued over the years from his time as the Governor of California through his two terms as President of the United States. The couple were the first to stay in the former Plaza Suite upon its completion in 1984 and have been frequent guests of the hotel ever since.
The new Ronald Reagan Suite was created as part of a recent multi-million dollar enhancement program at the Westin Century Plaza. The stunning 8,000-square foot presidential suite, which occupies the entire 30th floor of the Tower, is surrounded by an outdoor terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows affording panoramic views of the Los Angeles skyline.
The suite features reinforced concrete walls and bullet-proof glass. A private kitchen was added so that the Reagans could entertain guests.

Because the original building served as the "Western White House" for every U.S. President since the hotel's opening in 1966, it was only fitting that the first guests to check into the Tower were President and Mrs. Reagan. Bennett Hall Images created the theme for the suite following months of extensive research.
Reagan's private and public life, from his early childhood through his two terms as President, is chronicled through a series of 47 fascinating photographs framed in 24kt gold and prominently displayed throughout the suite. Some of the most compelling books offering insight into Ronald Reagan, the man and the politician, will be available in the suite.
The design firm Chhada, Siembieda and Remedios gave great attention to every detail of the suite from the selection of furniture to the coordinated art work. As a result, the Ronald Reagan Suite is truly presidential, conveying a stately and timeless quality that is regal and dignified without being stuffy.
