Nice hotel near LAX

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 4, 2013

It's unusual for me to duplicate tips but in this case I think it's justified. I've placed my review of this hotel in 'LA' (even though it wasn't listed) but it also deserves to be in El Segundo.

If you have a car...or if you are just looking for somewhere to stay near LAX..this hotel is a very good choice.

It's far enough away from the airport not to have any aircraft noise and it's in a safe area for wandering (there's a mini-mall 10 minutes' walk away).

Staff are very pleasant, courteous and friendly. There's a heated pool, a bar/restaurant, a washing machine and dryer for guest use and a fitness room.

Most importantly for someone without a car (like me) there's a shuttle to and from LAX. It will pick you up when you arrive (just phone the hotel) and makes regular trips to the airport every 30 minutes from 4am until around midnight.

My room was pleasant, quiet and very clean, with a very comfortable bed. There was a tub as well as a shower, good toiletries, a safe, ironing board/iron and a coffeemaker which made reasonable coffee (as long as I reduced the mount of water I used!).

Wifi isn't free (10 USD per day) but when I asked about it I was given free wifi for my stay. Not sure why..perhaps they've realised that not having free wifi is not a good thing nowadays? There are two computers in the 'business centre' and a printer, which are free for guest use. And there's plenty of parking space (as far as i could tell).

I ate in the hotel a couple of times. Good draught beer...I liked 'White Dog'. The food was reasonably-priced for a hotel and tasty. I decided not to take the 17 USD 'breakfast buffet' but just chose items from the menu: bagel and cream cheese and fruit/natural yoghurt. Again, reasonably-priced for a hotel and the bar/restaurant staff were very friendly.

I did enjoy my stay at the Doubletree...it was a comfortable place for a solo female traveller who just wanted to relax and make occasional forays into the wider LA area. :-)

Directions: To the south of LAX. Takes about 20 minutes, assuming traffic is flowing freely.

LAX for a night and quiet

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 11, 2010

Put the parents up here while they were visiting us in El Segundo. Didn't need a resort just a nice quiet place to sleep the room was immaculately clean. They gave us a couple of chocolate chip cookies upon check in, which was welcome after the long drive. For the amount of attention to detail it was kind of surprising how somethings were not well maintained. For example the closet door was broken and difficult to open and close. The TV/entertainment control was over the top, but as I said not much time was spent in the room. Fortunately, the room was quiet and very comfortable, and reasonably priced for a doubletree.

Unique Quality: Half block East from Sepulveda on Grand (the main street that runs through El Segundo).

If you got a high enough room, you might enjoy the city lights at night, but you aren't going to see the ocean, and smog in LA is going to prevent any views during the day. Lots of hotels near LAX are quite noisy, you can't hear the planes from this one.

The Doubletree near LAX in El Segundo is about the quitest, nicest place to stay if you are visiting El Segundo on business or pleasure if you don't plan to spend much time at the hotel. It is not a resort, but the beach is a short drive away. If you needed a quick overnight hotel near LAX, I would recommend this place. On the other hand just down the street in Manhattan Beach and other hotels that are more resort/vacation oriented.
The doubletree is in the heart of the business corporate buildings and near Raytheon, Boeing, some of the airlines et al... cars direct et al...
Reasonably priced and very comfortable.

Unique Quality: shares parking lot with Mattel. Not in the LAX flight path, so you won't hear the planes. (Very quiet.)

There was plenty of parking, the hotel was clean and very comfortable. Most importantly we couldn't hear the planes. This doubletree is just out of the flight path and across the parking lot from Mattel. It is a little hidden, but not too hard to find. Also nearby are Northrop Grummand and Oracle as well as a number of large office buildings. This is really a business hotel, although there is a pool to the side of the hotel, this is a comfortable place to sleep not a place to vacation.

Directions: South on Sepulveda from LAX and East on Grand. Easy to see the sign, but you may do a lap around the block trying to find the entrance.
