Like any Joie deVivre hotel, it has a special charm

We really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back again. Has a very fun and hip vibe, and the room was comfortable and groovy in a sleak and cozy way.

Hotel has seen better days

The Custom Hotel -- while centrally located -- is in need of a major upgrade. The rooms show lots of wear and tear ... dented and dirty furniture, dirty carpets, dirty and disgusting bathrooms. Families should be advised to stay away. It's really only good if you are traveling alone, plan to use the room solely as a jumping-off point and need to stay near the airport.

Nice Family Trip

Our hotel stay was nice. The only complaint we had, was that it was a little far from the action but that's also not a bad thing. Would definitely recommend the hotel for the price and accessibility to the airport.

Not good

Terrible place to stay, after paying almost $250 a night we arrived to find we we staying on a floor of the hotel that was under construction, getting off the elevator looked like a horror movie, vacant rooms with doors wide open and random wires hanging from the ceiling, the carpet had not been vaccumed, during booking we were never informed that we could be placed on a floor that was under construction, not to mention the morning noise caused by the renovation workers. At check out the staff never even asked how our stay was.

could be better

Hotel is close to the airport after that you have to pay (parking and breakfast). Room was clean with a euro modern feel but underlit and dark. Close to grocery, coffee, dining and bars. Overall I would have felt better appreciated as a patron if amenities like parking and continental breakfast were provided.

Custom hotel

It was a nice hotel for what you paid for. Had a nice pool with a fire pit. The up side is its close to a lot of shops and food so don't have to drive to much. The staff was friendly and helpful. They did not have a gym which was a down side and the rooms smelt like paint but it is understandable since they were just remodeling.

Stopover

Breaking the journey from Australia to USA East Coast means findinb a good place to relax, sleep and eat close to the Airport. The Custom Hotel ticks all the boxes and does so with attentive service. The restaurant looking over the pool was a treat. The room was comfortable and very quiet. Shuttle service prompt. All in all a very good experience.

Short Night Stay

I booked this room with very short notice and a very late check in due to flight delays. I'm not familiar with driving in the area so close to LAX and got turned around with the streets and then finding only valet parking. Oh well it was late. Check in was uneventful, I got to the room and found a typical european style room. Sparse furnishings but comfortable environment. Room had a very nice set of windows overlooking a part of some type. Bathroom made me feel like I was in Europe. Got a good nights sleep over in about 4 hours and was out the door. Check out was easy with receipts emailed immediately . I'll come back again given the chance, the area looked to have some interesting places within walking distance.

Great for a short stay

It's located just near the airport -- which could be a great thing, depending on the nature of your travel. The amenities are basic but good, and there's free parking if you park your car in the neighborhood. A great value.

Memorial Day Weekend

The location is excellent! Good, safe area and many restaurants in walking distance. There is a grocery store next door. The rooms are spacious and clean. The beds sit low but are comfortable. Parking is valet only at $27 a day. However, even with the cost of parking you can't beat the rates for that area.
