Had one-night stay here 2-11-11. Was a bit apprehensive after earlier (2007) truly awful reviews, but really quite enjoyed the stay. I think it's really important that folks who stay at a Summerfield Suites understand that there is a niche these "suite" properties fill, and it may not be the same as that filled by other Hyatt properties. So, things which might be annoying to a luxury traveler might be just right for families on vacation, which I suspect, in addition to business travelers during the week, is what they're aiming at. *Parking is free! *At check-in, FD staff was friendly, helpful and recognized Platinum status, welcoming us and asking if we wanted points or a fruit bowl for our amenity. We chose points, and they offered us each a beverage from the fridge in addition. FD area is bright and well-lit, as is the area beyond used for breakfast and lounge area. Meeting room(s) are also available if needed. Not sure if there is a charge for use. *A small but inviting pool is at the rear of the lobby area. There is also a "ball court" for tennis(?) or basketball, which I would imagine is great if traveling with kids -- not so much for those who might need to be asleep nearby during the day. *Small "store" area doesn't have tons of stock, but could keep one from starving. *We were not able to enjoy the evening social hour, as our stay was on a Friday. Each weeknight, though, rotating selections are available, such as Potato Skin Bar, Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Pizza Bar, Nacho Bar, etc. *Room was quite large, with separate bedroom and living/dining area. Fit and finish in kitchen and living room were adequate, and the bed and duvet were very comfortable. It was really nice to have a full-sized refrigerator, even for only one night, and not to have it full of mini-bar items I have no intention of purchasing. *No elevators, which is OK, but our room was right at the top of the stairs, and I noticed some noise coming up the stairwell from the lobby area. No problem for us, but it might have been had the lobby been fuller or the clientele been partiers. *Breakfast was quite a bit above Holiday Inn Express, but not full-service hotel quality. But, it was free for all guests, which I often, traveling as a Platinum, forget is really important. Cooked eggs and sausage, cold cereal. No cooked oatmeal. Juices, teas, coffee. Bagels, toast, English muffins. *Wonderful local restaurants, within walking distance. Fleming's was great for steak, if pricey. PF Chang's nearby, as are Paul Martin's, McCormick & Schmick's, Houston's -- lots of other options. Also, CVS Drug within walking distance, as is Fresh & Easy Market. *No shuttle to LAX, but the Green Line (Douglas stop) is right next door. (Though we noticed no noise at all from it.) FYI, the Metro doesn't go quite all the way to LAX, so you get off at the Aviation/LAX stop and take the free shuttle the rest of the way. Reverse for arriving here. *Prices can be a bit high sometimes, but it's the only Hyatt property anywhere near LAX. All in all, a nice stay.
