Convenient overnight near the airport, with a great run to the beach. Check-in was painless; as more guests arrived additional staff members were immediately called to the front desk. Wait time was less than three minutes.
Stayed in an end room on the fifth floor, west side. While the view isn't much more than a rental car parking lot and a portion of the LAX tarmac, the room was well above average in both amenities and cleanliness. The room is shaped like a "T", with one 'wing' providing an entry foyer. This effectively canceled the light coming in from under the door (important if you're like me and prefer a dark room to sleep in). The other 'wing' was the bathroom, again slightly larger than what seems to be the industry standard. The main portion of the room was also spacious compared to "standard" rooms, very clean (even under the bed), and all amenities were in working order.
Gym and pool are on the second level, south side, to take advantage of the CA sun...with nearly two dozen very comfy lounge chairs. Gym has several aerobic machines as well as a full set of dumb bells and several weight machines...well above the normal hotel "fitness center".
The run takes you north from the hotel lobby to Westchester Parkway and then west, along the north side of LAX, to the beach. From the hotel it's about 4.0 miles to the beach one way. If you run on the south side of Westchester you'll have your choice of a wide grassy strip or sidewalk to run on, with fewer cross streets to contend with, than on the north side. When I queried the desk staff on a place to run, they were all very aware of this route and even had a map to provide directions.
Great run in the city, close to the airport, with clean/comfortable rooms, an above average gym, and a friendly staff. If you need a place to stay in LA close to the airport look no further.
