I should probably preface this by saying that I love airplanes and chose this because of its view of LAX. I've stayed here twice with my husband and would stay here again before a flight out of LAX.
That said, there are some great things about this hotel and some things that I don't love about it.
- Airplanes! If you like airplanes and don't mind a little noise, ask for a room on the south side.
- Our room was very clean and didn't look worn (like some of the reviews I've seen here--I'm thinking that we got lucky)
- There was a free continental breakfast for SPG members on the 12th floor. It wasn't fancy (scrambled eggs, pastries, coffee, tea), but it was a nice option.
- The place smells like the distinctive Westin White Tea/Aloe toiletries.
- The Heavenly Beds are very comfy.
- You'll get nickeled and dimed here. Beware: if you even lift any of the tempting items off of the in-room trays, you'll be charged for them. Ditto for the mini-bar. Seriously-they charge you $25 for use of the mini-fridge. I'm surprised that they don't charge for ice.
- If you're not a plane enthusiast, you might find the constant airplane noise aggravating. This comes with the territory to a degree (it's an airport hotel after all), but you might be awakened if you're a light sleeper.
This will do the job if you need a hotel near LAX, as it's comfortable and in a good spot, but just be prepared to pay for every little "extra" and bring some earplugs if you are sensitive to jet noise.
