In more than 25 years in the hotel business, Michel Tourniaire has worked through a revolution in Afghanistan and a coup in Thailand. Now comes one of his most daunting assignments yet: opening a hotel in downtown Los Angeles. "I was always dropped into interesting situations," said Tourniaire, who today will greet the first guests at the 439-room Inter-Continental in the midst of a regional recession, a glut of hotel rooms and tensions left over from the Los Angeles riots.
