The second article states the hotel has a sky-lobby and observation deck on the 70th floor.

Different articles show different floor numbers. There should be a clearer picture of InterContinental Los Angeles when all the grand opening articles hit the press next week.

IHG website hotel page offers some additional details, but truly very little insight into the hotel.  LA is a place where one would expect to find a vibrant media presentation for the public on the new hotel’s website. Not yet.
