Convenient to LAX, but only with a GPS

We chose this hotel to avoid fighting LA traffic in the morning before a flight. It was good for that, however it was disappointing to have to use valet parking.

COOL BUT NOT THAT COOL

HOTEL FRONT RECEPTION STAFF IS NOT VERY HELPFUL OR INFORMATIVE. EXAMPLE: THEY DID NOT INFORM ME THERE WAS ONLY VALET PARKING OR WHERE TO GO TO FIND MY ROOM. THEY GAVE ME MY CARDS AND TURNED AWAY.

Modern and Sheek

I really liked this hotel. I would say that it is for young couples. It's really modern. The only thing I didn't like was how thin the walls were. You could hear everyone in the hallways really good and they could hear you in your room. Other than that the service was awesome, and the rooms were very clean and nice. I enjoyed my stay..

Very Friendly Staff

This was the second time I have stayed at the Custom Hotel while traveling for business in Los Angeles. The staff is super friendly. Restaurant food is very good and reasonably priced. Rooms are modern/funky and the bed is comfy. They are going thru a remodel but it does not have an impact on the guests.

Not our best experience.

We specifically stayed there because there was a pool, but it was out of service due to the construction. There was no signage to direct us to the second floor lobby. 3 of the ice machines were out of order & the hallway fire alarm too. The keyboard to the tv didn't work and nobody answered the phones when we called to get another one. We had to leave the bathroom door open or else parts of the overhang would break off. When we called for valet, no answer again and nobody downstairs to get our car. All and all, not what we expected and don't think we would stay there again.The only pleasant part of our trip was [...]at the front desk, he was extremely helpful and apologetic. It seemed like he was used to getting a lot of complaints, but still treated us as if ours mattered.

Custom changing fast

I like the custom but they are changing owners and seems like every time I am there they make dumb excuses on why things are funny....finish the deal already it is getting annoying! will be interested to see if they keep rending rooms at a good price. Bad showers! loud and no pressure. I gave it 4 Stars for the value but if they raise the price it would be a 3 star place.

Excellent hotel for layovers

We just needed a night stay for a connecting flight and found the custom hotel very clean, convenient and has a super friendly staff. The happy hour food was delicious and so was the breakfast. Internet was complimentary and there's a free shuttle to and from the airport but be sure to call the hotel in advance to arrange for airport pickup

Great location with a style

The room was small but comfortable. The staff very friendly and helpfull. Remodel and renovation was underway while we were there (3-19-11 to 3-26-11). They might want to think about adding noise reducing material to their remodel.

wait until after it completes it remodel

remodeling in progress--carpets in common area dirty. black may be a chic fashion statement, but black paint on walls makes the place appear gloomy. inattention to detalis including burnt out light bulbs in the room and inadequate lighting in the hallways, etc. no in room coffee and no complimentary morning coffee at the coffee bar. a feeling that this place is more concern with cost cutting by cutting corners than they are with guests comfort.
