About this Hotel

Price From $95

Working hard to prove that airport hotels needn't be dull, the Custom employs a private shuttle that takes guests to and from LAX while playing techno music over silent Greta Garbo movies. Clearly, this place is a playground for grown-ups. DJs spin Afro-Cuban tunes at Hopscotch, the pool bar and grill with a fire pit, four cabanas, and vintage video games. Artistically inclined guests can borrow art supplies from the 12th-floor studio, Scribble.

Plus The complimentary weight and cardio rooms are decorated with dog- and horse-racing motifs and span two floors.

Minus The fourth-floor vending machine area Bazaar, selling everything from rainbow-colored suspenders to, well, saucier items.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, Visa, MC, Discover
