In the six years since I last stayed at this Hilton, things have slipped a little. The carpets are a bit stained, the elevators a bit banged around, the doors chipped and scuffed, the plywood looking a bit dated, and the staff distracted. I guess this is what happens in a high-traffic hotel, but it is nevertheless disappointing. The hotel is still a bit difficult to get to from the airport, but the shuttle runs regularly and is easy to pick up at LAX. It is close to some of the rental car companies (eg Budget, Hertz), walking distance. There's a Carl's Jr. half a block away. The parking is peculiar, as it is a separate business for Hilton. That is, it operates as a parking garage for folks not staying at the hotel, and surprisingly Hilton guests don't get the best rates. Pro's: 24 shuttle service from airport, calm decor, good dining options, and spacious lobby. Con's: Expensive on-site parking, expensive food options for an airport hotel, high-traffic facility, temporary executive lounge was abysmal.
