... like he was feeding you a line of BS. He took over the country when we were at a very low point. Not much self-esteem and not well regarded world wide. I think he helped change that perception, and his "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" speech in Berlin in 1987 was truly historic and rivaled Kennedy's "Ich bin ein Berliner" (I am a Berliner) speech in 1963. Reagan was a good one!
And then on to the Air Force One Museum. They ...
We finished up after driving along Sunset Strip at Hollywood Boulevard. We asked if we could end here for our Starline Celebrity Tour.
In an open roofed bus, we were off to see where all the Hollywood Stars lived in the area, and where movies were made. The houses, some quaint, some grand, and others just in the mix. To name a few, Katy Perry, Bruno, Gwyneth, Lucille Ball, Shirley Temple, Tom Cruise, and even Michael ...
... out of respect- I ate it all!! I had no idea what I was eating but it sure was good. The rest of the night we walked around a few more areas of the city, said goodbye to Seth and made our way back to our hostel. Which took some time because we got lost when we came out of a different entrance. Many people were very nice and helped us get back. Now we need to get some sleep and adjust a bit our new time ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsRenaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel
We got an amazing deal for this hotel because we booked it so last minute. The room was really nice. It worked well for us because we had an early flight and wanted to be close to the rental car return and airport.

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel
Very good business hotel
The Renaissance LA Airport is a very nice business hotel where you can get great weekend rates ($71.20 per night with AAA discount). Rooms are fairly large and quiet. Can't hear any airplanes. However, the walls between the rooms are thinner so you can faintly hear your neighbors.
One thing annoying is that self parking is $11 per day and valet is $15 per day. Parking should be free for hotel guests.
Great concierge who reserved us a table within 1/2 hour for 7 people. Overall nice hotel and would stay there again if we are going to this part of L.A.
Nice Hotel near airport
Hotel accommodations are nice, clean, upscale and have great weekend rates. Only problem encountered was upon check-in, which we had confirmed earlier in the day. When we arrived around 8pm, we were told by hotel staff that our room had been sold to another guest and that we would be transported to what we viewed as an inferior hotel in the area, but within the Marriott family. We rejected the offer and asked to speak with management. The manager on duty assisted us and said the only thing he could do was to offer us one of the "emergency" rooms that was being vacated by some airline pilots. We accepted this offer and enjoyed drinks in the hotel lounge until our room was ready. All in all a great stay, but I do have to lower my rating because of questionable customer service.
Best of the Best
I stayed just one night for a business meeting, I was quite impressed, the staff was most attentive. One thing that caught my attention immediately was the shuttle service from the LAX Airport, after dropping folks off at the Hilton (which shares the shuttle bus with the Renaissance) a steward for the Renaissance hotel, grandly handed heated towels as a welcome, I must say this was quite unexpected and appreciated, after traveling for hours. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Top airport stay
Stayed one night, arrived after midnight, bit of a problem sending us to a room closed for renovation but soon got a good room. Staff were helpful.
Next to LAX but no noise.
Great buffet breakfast included in our weekend package.
great hotel for an airport but only a saddo would stay more than one night
We spent 3 nights at the Renaissance after landing at LAX. The hotel was wonderful - great room including breakfast, extremely courteous staff. The only problem we had was that there's not much around the airport area to do. Early pick up of the rental car fixed that.
Once again, book direct with the hotel and take advantage of any deals they offer - we truly got a cheaper deal booking direct over the internet than any of the travel places could do.
Well worth the money and highly recommend.
I stayed at the Renaissance the week of the December 19th -26th.
Wonderful. I wanted to stay at this hotel despite the web prices of $160 and up, I went to the Marriot's home web page, and found that I could get a cheaper fee if I used my AAA card, and reserved the room at $119 a night. The hotel is beautiful, I had asked for a non smoking high floor room, and had a choice of having a city view, or a view of the hollywood sign, I chose the city view, you can see the hollywood sign from anywhere in L.A.The hotel does provide room service .. a little expensive, a soda can cost $4. Their is a burger king across the street with a lot of other little stores. The hotel has a small gym and a pool that can only be accesed with a room key.The hotel is connected to an outside mall/galleria, that can only be accesed with your hotel key, ( this way only hotel guest can get back in ). I it is also located adjacent to the Kodak Theater. It's about a half a block a way from Hollywood Blvd. They provided vaalet car service at a $20 a day fee. The hotel staff was very curtious, friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay, and would recomend this hotel.
Loved the Renaissance
My two teenagers and I stayed at this hotel in August 2003. Everything about our stay was perfect. Every staff member we encountered was more than helpful. For example, when I asked one of the concierges' advice about a good day trip, he actually produced a step by step written driving trip we could take up the coast. The room was impeccably clean and decorated beautifully in an art deco style and looked brand new. The beds had wonderful duvets on them in great colours. My kids loved the location - right near all the action, next door to a food and entertainment complex. Even when we rented a car, the hotel staff went out of their way to assist us, calling the rental company and arranging for someone to pick us up. We went on several of the LA tours and the tour company came right to the hotel to pick us up. We were right next door to the Hollywood walk of fame and Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Hollywood Blvd. is busy every night - it is an entertaining experience to just walk down it - stores are open late and lots of people on the sidewalks. There is big variety of restaurants in the complex, and a nightclub or two although we didn't go to them. Everyone at the hotel was polite, the hotel was very quiet and the view was great. The air worked well, kept the room comfortable without it getting too cold or warm. All in all we had a wonderful vacation and the hotel and its staff played a big part in that. If you are looking for a good hotel, not too expensive, it's a great choice.
Although this is a good hotel, I can't share the enthusiasm of the previous reviewers. It's fully functional and for a one night stay as I had, it works nicely. I would not want to base myself/family out of this hotel while on vacation. The room is somewhat sterile and the carpeting has definately seen better days. The immediate neighborhood is nothing to write home about. One huge plus is that the rooms are well- soundproofed, unlike the Hilton where I heard planes coming and going all night long.
Honeymoon Bliss @ the Renaissance
We enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance Los Angeles Hotel. It was the second night of our honeymoon and it was truly sound proof, we didn't hear not one plane.The suite was emmaculate.The following morning we had a delicious breakfast in the dining area. The staff was friendly and courteous.The late check out was also great, because we had time to eat breakfast and return to our room and pack at our leisure. It's also a beautiful hotel with lovely artwork.-Tutrecia & Edward G.
Class, Class, Class
Spent 2 weeks at this hotel and the only complaint I have is that it was not 2 months.
From the minute you drive up to the front doors the attention to quality starts. The staff are so attentive to your needs, and the grace and quality of the surroundings just never stop.
My room was on the top floor, I think they call it the excutive floor, and it was nothing but class, class, class.
