Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
It was hammering down with rain when we left the hotel this morning. We were going to go to Venice Beach for breakfast but it seemed pointless with such bad weather. We thought we would visit the local shopping mall instead. We had a nice breakfast but the shops weren't very interesting. We looked on the internet over breakfast and decided to go to …
Så er vores sidste stop i CA kommet - Los Angeles
Vi har været en tur oppe og se Hollywood skiltet og i Santa Monica.
Vi glæder os til at komme til varmen i Florida og få en fast base i huset, så vi kan leve lidt normalt igen.

22oc - felt hotter! thought we were going to get a tan in an open top tour bus but instead got a nice air conditioned bus instead. Our tour guide was a nice man called Mark ('Marco' to the Spanish speaking people aka EVERYONE in LA apparently.) we later found out that he is also a screenwriter for Fox who works on some high profile shows, including …
Its 7am and we've just woken up in our own gorgeous double beds in a lovely hotel room in Los Angeles :) Cant believe we are here, and even more, I cant believe that this is the only the beginning.

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Los Angeles International Airport
Nice, Clean, and Comfortable
I stayed one night 9/13/04. The check in was quick and efficient. The staff were warm and welcoming. The room on the 9th floor was basic, but comfortable and clean. The street noise is considerable. The room had a sliding glass door opening to face busy Century Blvd, but with the sliding glass door closed, the traffic noise wasn't too bad. Fairly firm comfortable bed. Food in the lounge was very good and the staff was very friendly and cheerful. The pool is not heated, so it's a chilly swim! Parking was $9.00 in either a parking garage or parking lot. Good rate of $57.00 from the Holiday Inn website. Overall, a nice, basic hotel with friendly staff. I'd stay again.
Liked the Room, Hated the Intrusions
Great value for the price (Howire $50), pleasant front desk and room service staff, and a free airport shuttle. The best part was being able to drop off our rental car a couple of streets away(saving the $10 overnight hotel parking). However, someone knocked on our door at midnight, and our phone rang at 1:35 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. Each time no one was at the other end. The hotel said the intrusions must have come from another hotel guest. To avoid the sleepless night we had, I recommend asking for a room that wasn't rented out the night before your stay.
Not So Bad
I stayed at this hotel in April for an eight-day stay. The hotel was close to the airport, but not much else. Room was not the worst I've seen, but could've been better. Don't even bother with the room service or buffet in the hotel's restaurant. There are several places nearby to grab a quick bite. Neighborhood isn't the most friendly I've been in. The pool was the highlight of my trip... was kind of in a funny location, but no biggie. Staff seemed pleasant. I will probably stay here again in the future, good value if you are in the area... and don't mind street noise.
Room is ok, but tiny
We got 2 rooms in very different locations. The staff said they can't find two closed no smoking rooms even in the same floor. Really? The room is kind of old but clean. It is just big enougth for a king size bed. And the window is not so tight so that you can heard the noise on the street. Park fee is $10. It is pretty close to airport and Car rental companies. So, it is ok to live there for catching early flight, but may not good for just living.
Decent, no frills hotel
We stayed in there in March 03. The front desk was nice and helpful.
The room was clean and comfortable, but just a standard room. We didn't eat in the restaurant but it appeared to be nice. We had drinks and appetizers in the bar area, the drinks and service were good. The downsides are: to go to the exercise room you have to go outside the hotel and enter through another door, this seems awkward and weird.
Also our room was on the backside of the hotel and someone in the residential area was having a party playing loud music all night long.
Oh and the parking is $8 a day. The location is great for the airport only, but other than that there's really nothing in the area at all.
This is just your basic Holiday Inn, no frills.
Very bad stay
We had a terrible experience with this hotel when we travelled there in Dec'03. We wanted a non smoking room and was given a smoking room. The staff didn't give us a different room, instead the room was sprayed which didn't have any effect. The door to the attached bathroom didn't lock properly. Even the amenities like alarm clock in the room were missing. The staff was not at all friendly. The parking was also hard to find with the hotel, even their shuttles to the airport didn't have a place to park. Parking was costly as well (10$)
It was really a terrible experience. We would definitely not recommend it.
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in early Dec 2003. We rang the hotel from the airport and they offered us a king bed room at an Internet rate. The staff were cheerful and very helpful. My biggest thanks go to the staff at the conicerge desk who gave us good directions and discount vouchers to the attractions.
The rooms could be brightened up, but all in all we were very pleased with the hotel.
We have stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is great. The staffs are great. However, parking of $8 is a bit expensive. They could also be better if they can improve their lighting. The corridors and rooms should install better lighting. Other than that, it was a great and clean hotel.
Good value, friendly staff. We stayed here in 2/03 and paid under $60 for a king bed with a sleeper sofa. Rooms clean and updated but could use better lighting. Some airport noise, awkward location of pool. Would recommend.
