... day 3 into the trip so he elected to go over there, with both guns loaded, declaring war. A few hours later, and with excellent customer service, we walked out with upgraded helmets and a upgraded intercom system and only wished we'd done it 3000 miles earlier. The store in Lauderhill just hadn't sold me the right-sized helmet and I'd suffered because of it. Now, at least future rides, we'll both be more comfortable and be able to hear ...
Today was spent at universal studios , we got the metro there and used the shuttle to get up the huge hill - there was no way we was walking. It has been over 40 here all day soooo hot , we walked around did most of he attractions including the tram tour which had technical difficulties with the 3d King Kong experience meaning we went round and round till it was fixed and it ...
... Luck not really going my way so had
to catch a shuttle which was $18. I tipped the driver $2-too much? Not
enough? No idea. On the plus side for the day I only have South America and Antarctica to go until I've set foot on every continent, and South America is getting ticked next week and Number 7 is getting done in March! Anyway now im just chilling at the hotel, can't check in for 3
hours so walking around and trying ...
... for the jamming room. He had already used his souvenir plectrum on a $6000 guild acoustic guitar when they asked him to leave because the conference was about to start. The embarrassment wasn't over, val, true to form, left her purse in the conference room and there was an APB to find the woman who had lost her red purse.....and the joint kitty I might add! I (Pauline) had decided to miss the exhilarating tour of how to make a Fender and was oblivious to all of the excitement ...
... favourite - and also Jacks - The Jurassic Park ride where we toured Jurassic Park, saw lots of Dinosaurs including two funny ones fighting over Popcorn and which ended in us getting chased by a gigantic T-Rex and going down a huge water slide where we again got soaked - a common theme on this holiday so far.
We then went back up to do the Shrek 4D ride which was very funny though we did keep getting covered ...

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.
