Whenever we have a flight early in LAX, we try to book hotels close to the airport. A very convenient, but not necessarily most inexpensive option, is the Courtyard LAX/Century. I choose this hotel not only because I am a Marriott member, but because I also have little kids and I want them to have clean non-smoking rooms with some space to play at.
All 179 guest rooms at the Courtyard LAX hotel feature separate office area, sofas and refrigerators, and two phones with voicemail and dataports. The free high-speed Internet is another one of the reasons I choose the hotel.
But the best part of it all is that it has a complimentary and reliable airport shuttle that leaves every fifteen minutes. The hotel is also near Santa Monica Beach & Pier , Beverly Hills/ Rodeo Drive, Manhattan Beach.
A main drawback typical of hotels like this is you have to pay an on-site parking fee (I think we get charged about $13 for night parking), and valet parking is available for a about $16-20 USD I believe. But apparentlty, there is an off-site parking available which I have not tried yet.

Unique Quality: reliable shuttle service
Rooms here are quite spacious for a 2.5 star hotel.
Unique Quality: No pool, but there is a spa. However, you can show your room key at the Marriott down the street and use their wonderful pool. Rooms are spacious, and a bit strangely divided, but offer a lot of closet space. Can sometimes find street parking on the street behind the hotel. Also, there are refrigerators in the rooms.
Directions: Between the Sheraton and Raddison.
There are certain things I love about a Marriott hotel. This one seemed to take them all to higher levels. The bathrooms looked liek they were brand new, the food service was open 24 hours, and even the chair at the desk seemed to be some kind of ergonomicaly perfect chair. It wasn't just like home, it was actually better. But I am poor, and have bad furniture.
It is in a great location (near LAX) and is remarkably quiet, all things considered.
Unique Quality: The hotel doesn't have any really outstanding qualities that set it apart from every other hotel. But it is just a level of service and comfort that seem to be above many of the hotels in the area. Plus, it is close to the beach, a lot of golf courses, and you can hit downtown pretty fast. Other than that, the pool, fitness room, high spped internet, food, etc. are all the same types of things you would find elsewhere, just to a higher standard.
Directions: Interstate 405. Exit west onto Century Blvd. Follow Century Blvd. to Vicksburg and turn right the hotel will be on the right. Or from LAX go north on Sepulveda Blvd. Follow it to 98th St and turn right. Take 98th St. to Vicksburg and turn right.
Courtyard by Marriott - LAX. Not cheap but close to the airport especially when you have just spent near on 20 hours flying getting to LA!
US$89 - Internet booking rate.
Unique Quality: Close to Airport and offers FREE shuttle service.
