Bottom Line

The 613-room Crowne Plaza Los Angeles International Airport is a modern, upscale chain hotel. Situated less than a half-mile from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the hotel is geared toward business travelers and provides a 24-hour free shuttle to the airport. The rooms are average size and cleanly designed, with flat-screen TVs and brown-patterned decor and shower/tub combos. Accommodating guests who may arrive or depart at any time of day or night, the hotel features a 24-hour business center, 24-hour room service, and four restaurants and bars. Considering its convenient location and above-average style for an airport hotel, this is a well-priced choice for business travelers.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Chic design for a classier feel than the average airport hotel

With rooms and some common spaces renovated in 2012, the Crowne Plaza hotel has a fresh, clean, modern feel. Large windows and skylights bring a lot of light into the lobby and common areas. The patterned pillows and large, colorful paintings on the walls give seating areas a more deliberate, designed feel than one typically finds in a chain hotel. Outside, the Crowne Plaza loses its luster, looking like any chain hotel on any airport road. The hotel is most convenient for business travelers and other frequent flyers, and its amenities are geared toward that demographic.

Location

Next to LAX, within about 25 minutes of Venice Beach

The Crowne Plaza LAX is just a few minutes down the road from the international airport (the “Arriving Flights” and “Departing Flight” signs are literally next to the airport’s entrance). Geared toward frequent flyers, the hotel isn’t in a scenic area—surrounded by more hotels, a few budget restaurants, and generic business buildings—and is several miles from many of Los Angeles’s main attractions, which in the traffic-filled city, could take a half hour or more to get to. However, Venice's top-notch restaurants, boutiques, and beach are about 20 to 30 minutes away.

Rooms

Clean and modern, with all the essentials

Rooms at the Crowne Plaza are of a standard size for an upper-middle-range chain hotel. Renovated in 2012, they are clean and up-to-date, and like the lobby, the patterned pillows and sleek, brown-yellow color scheme lend chic style. All rooms include a work desk and plenty of outlets, and come with a coffeemaker, stereo, and a flat-screen TV. Wired and wireless Internet is available throughout the hotel for fee. Upgrading to an Executive Level room will get you a bit more space and access to the Crowne Plaza’s Club Lounge on the 16th floor, where guests are provided a free buffet breakfast and an evening reception with snacks and drinks.

Features

Business services and four dining/drinking options, including a craft beer bar

The hotel makes it easy for guests on the go—with 24-hour room service, a 24-hour business center, and a 24/7 airport shuttle that runs roughly every 20 minutes. The fitness center, while oddly designed, is large and well-equipped with free weights, weight machines, space for mats and stretching, plus several cardio machines. There’s also a small, bland outdoor pool. The four restaurants and bars offer dining variety: The Landing Restaurant off the lobby provides a robust buffet and by-order breakfast to non-executive-level guests. Lunch is available at Boulevard Market Café, which has snacks, light fare, and grab-and-go items. The Century Taproom, the Crowne Plaza’s bar, has more than 30 draft and bottle beers. If guests are craving Japanese, there’s also the Yokoso Sushi Bar for dinner.
