Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles
Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
As we didn't have to be anywhere in particular this morning, we took the opportunity to sleep in and do some decent lazing about. We were very impressed with the beds that provided us with our first decent night's sleep since we arrived in the states.
After considering getting up, dressed and heading to a cafe downstairs for breakfast …
The day finally came! The four of us set off for our second US tour in two years. Why the US again? Well, we enjoyed the country last time, and wanted to see sights we missed on our last tour. Plus Holly went to Europe this year, so that wasn't on the cards. We also wanted to stay out of the cold weather, much easier for packing.
So, our …
So we've had fun during our last two days in America! We arrived into LA on Friday and had a quick look around the Hollywood area and saw the Hollywood sign but Saturday and Sunday were less about sightseeing and more about FUN! We were so ready for it, not that it wasn't enjoyable sightseeing, but just going off and doing our own thing was so …

Aeromexico had lost our 3 suitcases and refused to be of any help while the staff at this hotel went out of their way to try and help us.

The King-Size Suite overlooking the LAX Airport was so scenic. This was the best hotel stay I have had in a long time. The roomy suite with the Club Lounge was outstanding. I loved the warm and friendly hotel staff. The hotel is very busy with all of kinds of events and guests. It is a very popular hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles
5 star quality for a deep discount!
I was most pleased with my stay here for one night from 09/06 through 09/07. I booked the room through priceline for $45/night and received an out of this world bargain upon arrival. The location was prime and the luxuries/amenities were on another scale. We had the good fortune of obtaining a room on the 12th floor facing the south runway of LAX(I suggest you do the same). Watching the air traffic at the worlds third busiest airport is quite a spectacle to say the very least. The room had to be one of the best I have ever stayed in, in my entire life(and I have been in many rooms). The bed was so plush and immaculate that I had no problems whatsoever. At some point, I thought I was either dreaming or thinking that priceline made a mistake because there was no way I could get a room similar to this for so dirt cheap. The same hotel, on the same date on hotels was quoted at over $200! The staff was quite friendly and the pool/hot tub were very warm and inviting. We did not try their restaurant or fitness area, but I am most confident it was of the highest quality based on appearance and aesthetics. This establishment should definetely be awarded a five star rating as opposed to priceline's three stars. Parking was a bit of a hassle, but well worth it at the end. I would certainly exercise the option of lodging here again if the opportunity presented itself...ANYDAY! Thank you...
Nice and Easy
What a great hotel, We recently traveled to LA and stayed at the Sheraton Gateway. What was really great about this hotel was that the staff were extremely kind and accomondating which made our visit that much more memorable. Loved it!
We stayed here at the LAX Sheraton Gateway, last September 2003 for one night. It was just for the night, as we were off to Hong Kong, the next morning on United.
The hotel was in good shape and we had a high floor facing the South runways, 25L and 25R at LAX. From our view, it was one take-off after another, especially late in the evening, when you have all those 747-400s and 777s departing on International flights. Great view and not too much noise from the airport.
Food service in the main restaurant was good. It was either that or room service, and where do you go for dinner in the airport area? The gift shop was nice, if you needed something, perhaps a coca cola or some chips to take up to your room.
The lady working the gift shop needs a lesson in greeting people and not being so up tight, like you are in there to steal an item. The staff was good, however, again they need a little help in being more welcoming.
Would we stay here again? I think so, great location and good shuttle service into LAX. If you enjoy watching the wide bodies take-off and land, this is the place. Be sure to ask for a high floor facing the South runways. If you face the North, you will see many jumbos landing.
Los Angeles airport and hotel
Excellent hotel with fab beds. Room very good for our two night stay. Hotel restaurant staff very friendly. Accessibility to shopping quite difficult but one or two really good malls a taxi ride away.
LA Airport the pits. Desperately needs updating. Absolute chaos in terminals and security over the top especially compared with other major airports in the world. Fast food outlets quite appalling.
First let me say the room was great...The staff at reception were poor, long time to check in and didnt care about problems, they mainly care about flight crews, but I guess thats to be expected, I got a good rate at starwood website, (I THOUGHT) The deal was you got the room for $59 on the week-end, if you paid by mastercard. I did but did not get the price advertised, I spendt hours on the phone to starwood, basically BAD LUCK. SO take care of those SO CALLED SPECIALS, The hotel itself was good, the cleaning staff are amazing, the other management could use a training session. SO you balance it up, I would probab;ly stay again, because the hotel building was good and I dont really care that the staff are rude. But take note when booking specials on STARWOOD WEBSITE, if something goes wrong, NOBODY cares. It was not the money but the principle that annoyed me.
A great hotel
A very nice airport hotel. It is very clean, modern and despite being next to the airport, very quite. The rooms are tastefully done, all the amenities one would expect. Your stay at this hotel will be a good experience.
Great hotel ofr a nice price
We stayed in this hotel 3 nights August 2003 with 2 children, very friendly staff, the food was great and contrary to earlier reviews not really overpriced; we ate with the 4 of us for $ 80,- (including drinks !). Nice pool too and quiet rooms, we did not feel unsafe in the surroundings of the hotel though there was not much to do (what can you expect so close to an airport), but we had a car and drove around LA without any problems, it took about half an hour to downtown and Universal and about 20 minutes to Venice. Would recommend it to anybody (if you have a car at your disposal). We booked via Expedia for a rate of $ 55,- a night for the 4 of us which is rediculously low for ths hotel.
Very nice affordable hotel
This hotel is very nice and clean. Only 5 minutes away from LAX. Staff very helpful, shuttle was great. Rooms clean and QUIET (being so close to airport). Giftshop over priced. Room service food okay. Taxi service quick and efficient, knowledgable. Would recommend.
Beware non existant weekend specials
We found our preferred hotel booked and traveled up the street to the Sheraton 4 Points LAX. They advertised an "endless weekend" rate of $59/nite. Problem was, it didn't exist. The rate is $80-90/nite. I wouldn't have minded but the room was a disaster. Burn holes the size of your fist on the bedspread. Large portions of the bathroom ceiling had lost the plaster. Not only did the room reek but the hallways as well. Great employees and good room service just couldn't compensate for that room.
Great hotel, nice staff
It is not brand new but looks great. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are well equipped. The showers are glorious. The bed sheets feel silky and smell clean.
My room was cleaned though I thought I had put "Do Not Disturb" sign up. The cleaning staff spoke Spanish and I actually enticed a 5 minute back rub due to a pulled muscle from traveling, and I left a $20 tip! I felt like Cleopatra.
I walked in in shambles, walked out a happy camper.
