Great location

Really enjoyed the Custom Hotel - nice rooms and great location. It's very close to LAX and all around are stores, restaurants, gas stations, residences in a great neighborhood - and, all is not claustrophobic, like much of LA and those hotels right next to LAX. However, note that much at Custom Hotel is "extra," like parking ($20) and breakfast ($11.95). Staff is friendly & helpful.

Great quick stop!!!!!

Part of my road trip from Vegas to sf, need a place to crash for a few nights and do a little shopping, it's convenient located next to the air port and in and out burgers! Rooms are clean but you can tell it was an dorm with a great renovation. And you can't beat the price

good value

This is not a luxury hotel but it was great for the cost. The paint was peeling on the doors and the tiles in the bathroom were a little worse for wear but the room was clean, the bed was comfy, the staff was super nice, and the restaurant food was delish.

Stylish, Comfortable and Convenient

On a brief overnight layover, the Custom was comfortable and easily accessible from LAX with it's curtesy shuttle. The room was spacious and well laid-out--in the style of Ian Schrager's Public in Chicago. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Not the usual meaning of "boutique"

This hotel is advertised as a "boutique" hotel. Not quite. It is a refurbished older hotel. But most of the renovation seems to have been a quick (and cheap) coat of paint, that is already peeling in places. It is in a good location, near LAX but not too close, and in a nice neighborhood. But it really needed a more thorough renovation. And the amenities (gym, business center) are minimal and not well maintained.

Good value

I booked this room through a special value, and I believe I got a good deal. Clean rooms, great staff. Was able to take a cab to local areas like Santa Monica and LAX with ease.

Nice and contemporary

Stayed here on my last visit to LA. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a contemporary feel to it. Some of the amenities i.e. bathtub and sink are a little old or have cracked surfaces. But nothing too alarming and not a safety issue. Great, tasty breakfast buffet. Close to LAX and pacific hwy. I would definititely stay here again.
