California is not that different from Florida. The only difference is that California has more people thatn Florida, at least from where I am. Hollywood is a little bit more cooler than Orlando, and it is also a little bit more further from Houston. It is approximately 1,500 miles away. Hollywood is the city where people want to …

Universal Studios

A travel blog entry by traveler1595


Today I went to Universal Studios! It was really fun! My favorite part about it is when I got to go on the new Transformers ride, in 3-D! There were many other rides, but this one was my favorite. Universal Studios' history starts in 1915. Carl Laemmle, the founder of Universal Studios, opened it up and charged a general admission of …

What another big day we have had. Up at 4.15am to get to the airport in time to catch our flight to LA at 7am. Los Angeles is 2 hours behind in time so we arrived at 9am, we had to get a shuttle bus to the car rental place to pick our car up. Once again we got an upgrade, this time we have a Chrysler liberty jeep which is 4 wheel drive. There was a …

So we were up at 4am being given breakfast and tea by Charlie (thanks Charlie), said our emotional goodbyes to parents and flew off from Manchester at 8am. We finally arrived in LA, we were so excited to get outside in the sun....but instead waited 2 hours going through Federal Inspection and Customs. We seemed to arrive at the busiest time of the …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Custom Hotel Los Angeles

    Great Layover spot


    We booked the hotel with a great rate (for L.A.) knowing we'd stay during their soft opening for our layover enroute to Bangkok. Although the airport shuttle was not operational, the staff comped us for the taxi each way. All staff we encountered were very attentive. The room was small, by U.S. standards, but very comfortable and functional. Loved the bedding.

    Ein tolles Hotel für eine Zwischenlandung


    Wir waren auf dem Weg nach Bangkok, wir hatten einen (für LA) tollen Preis für das Hotel bekommen und wussten, dass es noch in der Eröffnungsphase steckte. Der Flughafenshuttle verkehrte noch nicht aber die Angestellten besorgten uns auf Kosten des Hauses ein Taxi. All die Angestellten, mit denen wir es zu tun hatten, waren sehr aufmerksam. das Zimmer war für die USA klein aber es war sehr komfortabel und funktionell. Ich war von der Bettwäsche begeistert.

    Lovely, Friendly and Enchanting!!!!


    Our stay at Custom Hotel was great! my husband and I wanted a weekend for ourselves and we decided to stay at Custom.I fell in love with the hotel when I saw it was all black, I knew then that it would soon become my favorite Hotel In L.A.The staff was very friendly and very helpful! our check-in was fast and smooth, our room was Amazing!!! we stayed in the 12th floor and had an amazing view of Marina Del Rey the room was clean and welcoming, our king size bed was just heaven to sleep on.Over all we had a great time at Custom Hotel and we look forward to returning for the opening of the restaurant and Pool. We both Recommend Custom Hotel to anyone who is looking forward to take a break from the real world.

    Boutique experience falls a bit short


    I am a tireless researcher when it comes to travel plans and accomodations. We recently had a last minute trip to LA due to death in wife's family. We wanted fair accomodations that wouldn't break the bank, and that would be close enough to the airport to get back and forth.

    Good value close to LAX


    We had a good stay at Custom Hotel. It is really close and easy to get to from LAX, and we also managed to get a substantial, last minute (within 24 hours) 35% off offer.

    The hotel is very hip and modern - dark grey walls, ultra-violet lighting, LCD TV, ipod docking etc. The only hiccup we had was an extra $100 bill that was incorrectly charged (after we had left) for minibar usage, which was quickly rectified when we emailed the hotel.

    Great new hotel


    Though not completely finished yet, the hotel is really nice. Our check-in was smooth and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable. The lobby bar was a fun place to hang out. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom is tiny, but the room size wasn't bad. The restaurants were not open yet, but it gives us something to look forward to. For my first trip to LA, staying at the Custom was a nice introduction. My one complainant is that the website gives the impression that everything is complete. I would call to double check what is available for your trip. But overall, I highly recommend it.

    Small room, big view


    Booked this hotel because it was $129 with AAA and close to LAX. The front had red lamps and on the side of the building it read "A Great Layover", which made me a bit edgy, then after driving thru a dark alley to get to the door which is in the back, I was wondering what I'd gotten myself into. Lobby was minimal but in an elegant, not Spartan kind of way, and the concierge was charm itself. The hallway was dimly lit, and with the purple paint, it was a bit eerie, but the room, though small, was bright and welcoming. Our king bed had luxurious linens and a fluffy comforter, the bed was perfectly supportive. The view was great, and there was a full shade when it was time to block said view, eliminating the old curtain crack problem. Bathroom was basic, plenty of hot water and fat towels. No restaurant yet, we ate two blocks away at Italy's Little Kitchen, $50 for two, homemade pasta and decent tiramisu. Later I found out the hotel had opened that day, and we were some of the first customers. Check it out, I doubt the prices will stay this low for long.

    Estremamente bello


    L'hotel non apre fino a ottobre.

    Abbiamo fatto una prenotazione la settimana prima che aprisse.

    Quando abbiamo chiamato per chiedere informazioni sulla prenotazione, l'operatore ha risposto e mi ha passato la signora X delle vendite. Pensando che fosse un call center, sono rimasta sorpreso di sapere che questa signora X era la persona che ha risposto al telefono. È stata molto disponibile e ha risposto volentieri alle mie domande dandomi anche informazioni sull'hotel.

    Spero che il servizio clienti non cambi, il servizio che ho ricevuto è da 5 stelle!

    So far so good


    The hotel doesn't open til October.

    We have made a reservation to stay at the hotel the week after it opens.

    When I called to make inquiries re the booking, operator answered and was eager to put me through to Ms X in sales. Thinking it would be a call center, I was surprised the Ms X was the person who answered the call and was happy to answer my questions and went on to tell me more about the hotel.

    I hope the customer service stays as good as this - the service I received was 5 star!
