Whenever I decide to stay near LAX, this is my go-to hotel. It's much more relaxing to be a few miles from Century, just off of Sepulveda, and still have easy access to a rarely-busy 105. There's a market and also some restaurants close to the hotel. Gas stations near-by, too, and they're not filled with possessed rental car drivers crazily trying to fuel up for their returns and make their flights. I've only rented a car when I stay at this hotel because parking is free and so I can't comment on the hotel shuttle service. Customer service in the hotel is consistently good and I've always felt genuinely welcomed by the front desk. This time, the front desk staff person's name was Justin and he was friendly and made sure I got the room that I wanted. Everyone in the restaurant was friendly, too, and the meal was fine. I like that Hilton gives you extra HHonors points for dining on-property. Also I like the two free bottles of water I receive through the program. Helpful to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room. I'll be back, no question. Thanks to all of the folks at HGI-El Segundo for another brief, but relaxing stay.
