    If you just checked in, CONGRATS! You couldn't have picked a worse hotel in the airport district! The beds are 3" above the ground and super uncomfortable. Have fun nursing your back pain tomorrow!

    Love the Custom Hotel - There is a view of the Ocean and LAX (close) as well as Hollywood on a clear day. The pool bar is fantastic! Joie de Vivre is upgrading the hotel currently. There is a small pa

    Trendtacular LAX sleepover spot. Breakfast is worth the $13 if you're hungry. Nice bed, leaky shower, cool lobby art. Clean.

    Best airport views are from rooms 1214-1219. Lobby is excellent for working, with tables and plentiful power outlets.

    Modern, comfortable rooms and an attentive staff. The breakfast bar with Illy coffee looked enticing for $10. Can't beat the proximity to LAX.

    Cheap - quite new building - overall really nice especially if you stay for just a couple of days. Free wifi and friendly staff. Food not the end of the world ;). Quite a party place sometimes!

    Uncomfortable bed, very thin blanket. It's by no means 4 star hotel. Fridge is in the closet. $35 valet parking or you have to street park. Motel is similar but cheaper.

    Here's a tip: load up on food at Ralph's, full up your fridge on the cheap with Brie and bottles of wine!

    Take advantage of the breakfast, they have good food and play some funky eclectic music, good stuff.

    On the 1st floor, in the hallway near the public restrooms, there's a hole in the wall. Take a look. :)

    Definitely take advantage of street parking cause 20 bucks a night is not happening. Also, I agree with the room key issue. That was a pain in the ass.

    Only rooms above the 9th floor have the other things you thought weren't optional in a room... Like, a DESK! Below the 9th, it's a dorm room! #premium

    Don't pay $20/night for valet parking! Street parking is plentiful.

    apparently, reserving a deluxe room with a queen size bed doesn't guarantee you'll get that. I have 2 full size beds and no desk. 👎

    Close to LAX. Parking is expensive, so only get valet if you're expensing it.

    Service BLOWS. The restaurant closed early due to Easter, and I needed cutlery for takeout gone wrong. I asked TWICE —once at the front desk, again over the phone. 40 min later, nothing yet.

    Not bad. Clean and modern furnishings, a bit overpriced, but good for an airport hotel

    The reception people are the worst. I spent two days and all of them are very bad with customers. They don't want to do anything and when you ask a question they get frustrated with you.

    I agree. This place over promises and doesn't deliver. I really wanted to like this place. The air isn't working. The gym is nothing like it looks on the website

    Desk clerks here are pretty clueless on how to handle airline hotel vouchers. Not good for a hotel so near the airport.

    Cheap rooms, but if you book your room on priceline, watch out b/c the hotel will try to charge your credit card twice. It happened to me and 2 people that checked in after me.
