The Hilton Los Angeles Airport is the only LAX airport at which I’ve stayed. For the reasons listed below, it works well for me, so I’ve never tried any of the other ones in the past five years. The room rate is often around $179, but it depends on the season and how far in advance you book. Here’s why I keep coming back: Avis rental car return in the basement parking garage. This is a huge time saver, and it is honestly the reason I’ve never looked at the other HHonors properties. Decent Executive Lounge. The food offerings are standard. In the morning, there’s fruit, yogurt, pastries, muffins, juice and coffee. In the evening, there are two hot finger foods, veggies, and cookies. Wine, beer, and liquor are available, but are not free. It is pretty comfortable, with an area around the food with Hampton Inn-esque breakfast tables, a lounge area with couches, and a little nook with a couple tables were you The lounge can get very crowded when it opens in the morning and evenings, sometimes making it difficult to find a place to sit. The rooms are quiet. The hotel is very near the airport and LAX has takeoffs and landings well into the night, so good soundproofing is important. Food options are available 24/7. The counter-service café is open 24-hours-a-day and will serve anything on its menu at any time of the day. This is wonderful when you’re leaving at 5am but don’t enjoy breakfast food like I do! There’s also a sports bar and two other restaurants. Some recognition of status. There is a separate check-in queue for HHonors members, and it often moves faster than the regular line. In addition, as a Diamond or Gold, I have always been upgraded to one of the Executive Floors, even though my On-Property Benefit is points. I’ve never received anything special or felt anyone went above and beyond because of my status, but it’s better than nothing. There are also a few annoyances with the property, including: The airline ticket printing terminals in the lobby often do not work. It’s not the end of the world to have to print your ticket at the airport, but it’s still pretty annoying that these machines rarely work (and there’s never a sign when they’re malfunctioning). The shuttle fills up quickly. While it’s never happened to me, I’ve heard stories from a lot of people about not being able to get onto the airport shuttle because it filled up before they could board.
