“Very Good Choice For Business Travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

The Marriott is nothing fancy, but it is a very good choice for travelers with business in the area, or those seeking a nice hotel close to the airport. The hotel has been renovated and looks much better than it did when I was last there. The restaurant and health club are both good, and the location is too: There are a number of restaurants, a movie theater and shopping all within an easy walk from the hotel.

Stayed October 2012

Stayed at the Marriott for a company event. Very nice room and great rate. The welcome reception and the dinner were excellent. A little disappointed that the Marriott does not have an actual restaurant that stays open for dinner. Staff were very friendly and eager to please.

Room Tip: Rooms above the second floor are quieter. Too many meeting rooms on the second floor and it is more...

We stayed at the Marriott 10/6 for a class reunion. Very nice room, great rate and excellent location. The banquet meal was excellent as well. Wine by the glass was too expensive in the bar. Beautiful setting in the middle of a very busy area. Many great restaurants are within a block's walk. Every staff person we encou tered was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Away from the elevator.

When flying out of LAX on a morning flight, I often attempt to try to fins a hotel reasonably close to the airport. I didn't know about "Carmaggedon", the planned closure of the 405 during this time, but when I found out I was happy I had made the decision to stay close. The location of the hotel is good because it is close to the airport. However, the hotel is on a main street that makes it feel somewhat commercial and puts it out of reach of an easy stroll to the beach. Marriott is in the process of a major renovation; the rooms are completed but the front lobby and breakfast areas have't been finished. God news are the rooms are clean and comfortable if somewhat basic. I did't experience the poise issue some reviewers have had. Breakfast is included and there was a good selection of breakfast foods. Given that you are in L.A., I was happy with the decision to stay here and the price/value equation made sense.

Nice, large hotel. Very close to LAX airport, and lots of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Nice bar with friendly bartenders and good service. Breakfast buffet was good, but a little pricy. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed twice on the same vacation. We had arranged fro some freight to be delivered to the hotel. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy.
The location is really good for us . lots of nice restaurants within easy walking distance. We will definitely be back to stay.

Room Tip: Golf course view rooms are of benefit.

I booked a night there to take my daughter and two friends to celebrate her 10th birthday. We only live 15 minutes away.The customer service started with reservations Rafael who helped upgrade immediately (I am platinum) to the corner suite with a giant balconey (I think balconey would be more desirable with a table chairs an umbrella..hint hint). Upon check in I told Sarah at the front desk about the celebration and they sent to our room cookies, apple cider and a card signed by the front desk to my daughter. SO CUTE!! She was so excited. I had also asked for three robes and three sets of slippers which they supplied no problem along with a microwave and a refrigerator.
Valet and bell service were so friendly and outgoing. I took the girls immediately to the pool with tons of towels available water and a few fun water toys including a giant beach ball that the girls loved. We were able to get into one of their complimentary cabanas. The only downfall would be that besides the cabanas there was not additonal shade not even umbrellas. Poolside service was great and very punctual.
That evening the girls had a blast in the spacious room. My only little complaint would be that the bathroom for this room be a little larger and with a tub or even two bathrooms. We asked for a rollaway which was brought in 10 minutes. We did have a noise complaint (knock on the wall) which front desk and securtiy handled very politically correct by asking neighbors not to knock and we moved to bedroom portion and they did explain to neighbors that it was a birthday for a 10 year little girl.
In the morning we ordered room service and we had a little confusion about my room package and breakfast but as the guest/customer they accomadated what I thought was included. It was very punctual and made two additonal trips to our room for extra items. I did order the breakfast burritto which was HUGE!
We and I (alone with 3 girls) very comfortable here and the entire staff seemed to help be in on the birthday celebration and knew about the celebration. For such a large hotel it did seem quite small and all staff seemed happy to be there an happy to help out. I am sure a few others will
follow in my footsteps. It is not a resort but definitely a very clean comfortable warm environment and with the golf course did not feel like you were in a city at all.

Room Tip: Corner room with the balconey (and once they add the table and umbrella it will be amazing).
