We recently stayed at the Custom Hotel in Los Angeles for 2 nights. The actual hotel is just a few miles from LA Airport but we were on a fly/drive holiday so had a long drive to get to the hotel. There is valet parking at the hotel and a charge of $20 per night which was good. The hotel is bright, modern & reception staff friendly at check in & check out. They told us about local sight seeing tours on arrival which we booked. The rooms are spacious with low beds and trendy decor. Large flat screen TV, upgraded toiletries and writing desk with modern red rectangular stool. Great complimentary safe big enough to hold a laptop & other personal belongings. The only downside was the pool area. After a 250 mile drive we looked forward to relaxing by the pool and enjoying the sun (as stated in their brochure). We were horrified to find the pool and entire area was in the middle of what seemed like a "rave" or disco at 5pm. There was a DJ blasting out loud music, lots of young men & girls dancing & singing like they were in a nightclub & it went on for hours! This seemed to be the norm. The noise was unbelievable! We are only mid forties but felt this was definitely not appropriate for us & they did not cater for all guests. Needless to say the next day was the same and our swimwear stayed in our suitcase. Unless you are under 25 you would not venture into the pool area. Such a shame as it did spoil our visit and we would not return to this hotel only for this reason.
