Southern California is home to many large companies with thousands of employees and hundreds of people visiting them every week. Tesla, Boeing, Skechers, Pepsi, Google and Netflix are only a few of the publicly traded behemoths that have massive operations in and around Los Angeles. Add in Hollywood, pro sports teams, the third largest airport in the US and not to mention the beaches that attract millions every year, the amenities costs only go up. However, after much careful searching I have found several hotels that are around the LA area, that are under $150 a night.
This is definitely my favorite hotel in the LA area. I have stayed here several times and each time I am more pleased with it. If you’re a Diamond member and use your sales abilities, you can get away with the suites up on the 17th floor. The view is amazing and the concierge desk up there is a wonderful touch! I can’t help but rank this as one of my favorite beds as well. I swear the mattress is worth more than the entire room and their sheets are silky soft.
Even the food was great here! My only downside to this hotel would be the parking cost, $48. That added on to the room is a bit pricy but if you’re coming from the airport without a car, the Uber would be ~$7. The lobby, pictured above, is extravagant and wide open, which is a huge plus for me as well.
I like this hotel a lot because of its location and the staff. Right off of Sepulveda and close to the 405 makes this hotel prime location. The rooms are great in size and the wifi is superb. I am a huge fun of all of the staff here as they have been great all 4 different times that I have stayed. The valets are great guys and fast with service.
I don’t recall them having an extensive kitchen, but the breakfast is as good as any Hilton. I am a big a Hilton guy, so it is always either here or the Hilton hotel above. But the last one is an SPG hotel.
I have only stayed here twice, which is typically not enough, in my opinion to review or rank a hotel but I was so blown away by everything here that I felt obligated to include it. First of all, the lobby is immaculate. Always enough people at the counter to break down any line that tries to form. The bar they have on the first floor is also one of the nicer that I have seen, great selection of bourbon and wine.
I really like the conference rooms they have here and the auditorium. Those, combined with the executive lounge upstairs, make this an absolute winner for business meetings or conferences.
