Airport hotels. You're not staying there for the charm; you're there because it's easy to get to and from the airport.
So I'm gonna lay it right out there: the Hilton LAX Airport has a lousy shuttle. This is a big deal, because after your long flight, when you're sitting on the curb, watching vans from every other hotel pass you by multiple times, it is pretty frustrating. Also, in the morning, when the line of guests waiting for a ride to the airport stretches into the door and across the lobby, that's not great either. On my most recent visit, a woman who got on at Terminal 6 spent ten minutes berating the driver for how long she had been waiting. (Note for grumpy travellers: there is no point in yelling at the driver. He gets paid starvation wages and has zero decision-making authority. Talk to someone who can actually fix your problem.)
There *is* a workaround for the shuttle problem: you can take the shuttles for the Los Angeles Airport Marriott, or the "Parking Spot - Century Blvd," and then walk to the Hilton (assuming your baggage load does not preclude it). The Marriott is to the west, so you will turn left onto Centruy Blvd to reach the Hilton; the Parking Spot is to the east, so you will turn right onto Century Blvd. The Hilton is between the two.) This has become my default technique for minimizing transit time to and from the hotel.
There is often a long line of people waiting to check in; the staff are good about expediting guests in the Hilton Honors line, if you are a member.
The rooms are clean and pleasant. Airport noise is a mild issue, but then, you're at an airport.
The wifi internet in my 17th floor room was so slow on my last visit it was unusable. The free wifi internet in the lobby worked fine.
The bar and louge (called "Landings" is adequate without being truly good. Lots of TV's to watch, if you like sports. Decently friendly service behind the bar. Expect to pay ~$10 per cocktail. Food is not horrible, merely okay.
In some respects, this should be a 2-dot rating, but I am giving them a third because most of the other LAX airport hotels have problems that are equal or worse.
