    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Los Angeles LAX/Century Boulevard

    Above average , Some Bad


    Stayed there 6 days..I paid $48 /night with priceline bidding... So, can not complain.. This hotel is excellent value for that price ..

    Good points are

    * Rooms are very spacious.

    * Lots of cupboards + mini fridge + free internet

    * Quite , no noice from airport

    * Safe location, Very Close to airport

    * Trolly to manhattan beach etc (didnt try it)

    * Prompt airport shuttle

    Bad are

    * Only Valet Parking available. Charged 14.30 ($13 + 1.30 tax!)/night

    * Opposit to few others mentioned, I couldnt find any free street parking around. There is only 1 street close by allows street parking in the night.. never found a free space.

    * Valet Parking is very slow.

    * The TV is kind of fixed in a box and the rear end with video input is not reachable. I was a tourist and wanted to checkout the videos I took in the night..couldnt do it.. not a big deal though..

    Okay...But Not Very Friendly Staff/Poor Location


    I was working the week in Los Angeles and ended up reserving a room here, not knowing better.

    Staff wasn't very friendly and that played into my decision to move to another hotel down the road.

    Not a place to stay if you have no transportation since there is nothing nearby to walk to. I did have a car for a couple of days and self parking is non-existant. You must pay the $13.00 per night to stay via valet parking. Valet parking is very iffy since you may have to wait a long time to have someone help you out. Some have mentioned parking on the street. Not a good idea since the streets are now all marked "One Hour Parking" only.

    For a day or two, not a bad hotel. More than that, find something near more shopping/entertainment.

    I stayed from Friday through Tuesday. I checked out early and finished up the next four days at another Marriott hotel in Torrance.

    Excellent value!


    Got the hotel for $40 on Priceline. It definitely went above and beyond my expectations. People were friendly, rooms are great (spacious & comfortable with a couch and mini fridge and free internet), very close to the airport, beaches, and other big attractions. The only drawback is the parking. Valet parking is mandatory and it's $14 a night which can really add up if you stay for more than a few nights. But we found some free street parking behind the hotel which made out stay very enjoyable!

    Very close to Airport


    We stayed in this hotel for 1 night on February 12, 2005. It is the second closest hotel to LAX, the closest is the Radisson. Check-In was painless. If you need to park your car, valet parking is mandatory. We returned our rental car the evening prior to our flight so this was not a problem for us.

    The rooms are very big with a divider between the beds and the workspace. The room also included a small fridge and had tons of storage. There is also a sofa. The rooms are sound proofed well and the airport noise does not disturb you.

    The free shuttle to the airport runs continuously every 15-20 minutes. You do not need to book the shuttle in advance, just proceed outside and if it is not there already it wil be along soon. The ride to the terminal is about 3 minutes.

    This was a great choice for an early flight out. Since there are so many options around LAX I would likely try another property in the future, although I would certainly not have a problem staying here again.

    One of the best Courtyard I have visited


    I stay at Marriott properties, particularly Courtyards, over 100 nights a year and this is one of my favorites anywhere.

    This was a unique property and had many of the amenities of a more full service property.

    The room was big, very nicely decorated with a hip decor, and had been freshly redone top to bottom.

    Highly recommended.

    Just OK, I think there are better choices


    A little nicer lobby than the average Courtyard, and they have a bar and better breakfast (omlet chef). I found this hotel on Orbitz for $89 but for the $159 they wanted on Marriott, this hotel would have been too expensive. I did not like: 1) $14 mandatory valet parking 2) Car alarms going off at 7:00 am from the jets going over 3) charge for local calls 4) Charge to use the buisness center. I have stayed at the nearby Embassy Suites South (on Imperial) and the Springhill Suites and thought they were both better hotels.

    Helpful staff, clean rooms, parking problems


    The room was clean and large enough for 4 people to be comfortable. The price was great. Some of the front desk people were very helpful in helping us find our way around; others were not. It seemed like the men were the helpful ones. The parking staff was not so great and there is no choice but to have your car parked for you. I usually insist on parking my own car, so I was unhappy about this. Too bad they don't have a complimentary breakfast, their buffet looked nice but was very expensive.

    I loved it


    i had an excellent experience at the courtyard lax. it was very comfortable. the rooms had everything one could need. and the staff was really nice. i would stay there again.

    Worth the price


    Unlike the other review, I found this hotel worth every penny. Not only was it near the airport, but the accomodations were fantastic!

    Little too expensive for hotel near the Airport


    Rooms were clean, huge and nice. But too expensive for hotel near the airport. For that price, I rather stay in west Los Angeles or near downtown. They really should lower their price.

    Go simple, one pair of shoes, two pairs of pants, one shorts, a few t-shirts and long sleeves for layering. Sleeping togs and travel size/share toiletries. One nicer golf shirt, hooded rain windbreaker, tiny umbrella, take only medicine that is actually needed - ...

    ... Universal Studios pretty early in the morning,
    had my camera finally charged so was happy.

    When I arrived there there were loads of chinese tour groups
    with the tour leader holding a flag, I got out of the way of those as soon as I
    could because they just have tunnel vission when they get going and will plough
    through anyone or anything in there way. Had a go on a few of the rides and
    took loads of pictures, the rides themselves were 3d rides so you ...
