... big humourless kahuna man appears. "Passport!" I hand it to him. Deanne goes thru. Waits for me. Gets ordered along: "You'll have to board!" She goes. I get cleared. "You'll have to put your shoes on to board." I do that with 3 big blue shirted kahuna's watching over me. "Don't worry about the laces, move" I do. A few lunatic corridors later I'm in the plane and to my seat: Lucky 13. I mean, bureaucracy gone mental. We show up with oodles of time, and along with four ...

This has got to be one of the funniest shows ever, so we're off to a good start.

Driving takes up a lot of time when you’re sightseeing in LA but I still kind of enjoyed the driving part. I liked to look at everything around me. It’s just very interesting. We stopped at Walmart. Oh my goodness, I’ll pop pictures down below. I found so many weird and cool food items (we didn’t go to the rest of it). We got a big packet of fresh strawberries for just three bucks (NZ). The pictures will tell. ...
We boarded our next train, the Coast Starlight, about an hour prior to departure and got settled in. We met our car attendant and loved him! I believe his name was Cruz. Brian was our car attendant on the Sunset Ltd and boy did we miss him!
Being that it was late morning there was a lot to watch and look at when we left the train station headed for home.
... from LA with several people along our trip advising us not to bother spending too much time there, we stayed four nights and had such a great time. We visited Universal Studios, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, The Observatory, Santa Monica, Muscle beach & Venice beach. Not all of the these places were quite what I expected, Hollywood was far from being pristine and full of celebs, instead full of tat shops and wanna be wrappers trying to push "FREE" copies of their ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Airtel Plaza Hotel and Conference Center Los Angeles
This hotel is nothing special. I've stayed here several times and would rather stay somewhere else but there isn't anything else in the area. The rooms are OK, ask for a room in the newer tower. This hotel is right next to the runway at Van Nuys airport which is pretty cool if you like planes. Lots of private jets taking off and landing and some rooms overlook the runway. I called the 24 hour room service just before 10pm...received voicemail stating they were busy and to leave a message so they could call back ASAP...left VM and asked to get a call back...never got a call back! At least they have free high speed internet.
The AirTel used to be a great hotel to stay in, now it's mediocre.
Clean, great service, great breakfast
I, along with a collegue, stayed in the Airtel because it was nearby the software training we were attending in Northridge. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious with free WiFi and Bath & Body works soaps, etc supplied. Beds were comfortable and even though the hotel is directly next to a runway, pretty quiet from 10PM-7AM.
The breakfast, consisting of eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, friut & veg, is very good and costs only$8. The bar is a quiet and convienent place to get a nightcap.
The area is not the greatest, but you are in Los Angles, not Disneyland. Parking was pretty steep, but well worth the cost. This hotel was a great stay and reasonably priced. I would recommend it for the business traveler more than a family.
This hotel is about 15 minites from Universal Studios. The front desk person was a little less then courteous. He looked at me like I was an alien when I asked for extra pillows. We were just looking for a hotel nearby Universal Studios, but wound up with this one through Priceline. The beds were hard. The bathtub is run down looking. The rooms are pretty large. I did get my extra pillows. Parking is $8.00. I don't understand why hotels, especially this one, charges for parking. Nothing is really nearby. The neighborhood isn't really terrific.
Good for pilots
This hotel, located adjacent to Van Nuys Airport, may be nice for those who arrive by private plane because they never need to venture into the surrounding neighborhood, best described as ugly industrial. If you are a private pilot or like airports in general, this is the hotel for you, but for ordinary travelers the Airtel Plaza Hotel is overpriced and poorly located.
Nice hotel, not nice area
Went with a large group of students. Totally innappropriate area for kids. The hotel itself was nice, but there were no restaurants within walking distance. (kids cannot afford the hotel restaurant) The hot tubs and jacuzzis were lovely, but again, not the nicest area.Oh, and pay the extra to park in their secure lot.
We ended up diverting to Van Nuys because of fog at SMO and decided to stay at the Airtel. While the front desk had messed up our reservation, things were put aright fairly quickly. The rooms were moderately large and clean, while the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is literally right next to the runways, but the noise was minimal at worst, and never bothered us. Food at the restaurant was also reasonably good. We will probably use the hotel again on trips to LA.
We were very worried about the airplane noise, but found to our surprise that it didn't bother us. The planes stopped flying by 10 pm, and didn't resume until 6-7 am. Four of us (2 adults, 2 teens) stayed in a room in the tower section and were quite satisfied. There was enough space (including room for a rollaway), and everything was clean.
Generally, the hotel had an air of calm and competence. The area is not particularly special, but worked for us because it was near the relatives we were visiting.
Wasn't all that the pictures cracked it up to!
Went to LA for honeymoon, and searched through several websites to find a good deal. Airtel had beautiful photos, and stated it was remodeled. It was indeed remodeled, but only certain floors, so be sure you ask for a room on the remodeled floors. Was not located in an area that I would like my children to be in, so be cautious. We had a remodeled suite, and it was a great looking room, nice and tidy, but the airport was rather loud and kept us awake.
