The Airtel borders the Van Nuys Airport so make sure you ask for a room that is not next to the runway. The hotel and conference center is a huge campus, with meandering hallways that never seem to end as you are trying to find your room. Wear comfortable shoes, as you will walk a long distance to get to your room from the parking lot. It's an old hotel and is in the process of being updated. The rooms and furnishings are older and definitely nothing special. But it was clean, the bed and pillows were comfortable and the shampoo, etc. was good quality. The housekeeping staff left plenty of towels and cleaned our room beautifully each day. Every single employee we met--from the receptionists to the restaurant servers, to the housekeepers--were extremely friendly and accommodating. We asked for extra pillows and hanger and had them within 5 minutes.
The restaurant and "cafe" are good (although the breakfast buffet was just mediocre), although the very large restaurant was usually empty, so I wondered how many people eat there.
It has a lovely pool and hot tub.
I would stay here again if we could get it cheaply through Priceline.
