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.

Good people, great location

Minutes away from LAX, the Custom Hotel offers great value. Left too early in the morning so I missed the breakfast that starts at 0700.

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.

Weekend visit

Great value and convenient location to Venice. The hotel is more of being trendy vs family atmosphere. The rooms are somewhat smaller with a platform bed and small bathroom. This is more for those under age of 25.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

1) Next to Ralph's grocery store. You can buy bottle water/snacks at normal prices. 2) If you're willing to walk 2 blocks, you can park on side street without paying $20 for valet. Be sure you read the parking signs because some streets have no overnight parking from 10pm-2am.

First LA getaway

I enjoyed my stay at the Custom Hotel. The rooms were nice, and the overall layout and design of the hotel was great. I like the customer service and the free WiFi. Im glad I was able to get a good deal on the room, because I ended up paying more in "hidden Charges". They don't have a parking lot so I had to pay to valet my car every day/night, which is $20 a day. The only other option was to cross my fingers and hope a parking spot on the street opened, but it never did. Then the breakfast they serve downstairs near the lobby was about $12 and only included a limited amount of food and you're only able to get water, tea, or coffee. If you want orange juice thats an extra charge of $4 a cup :-/ Deck 33 Restaurant out by the pool (which is smaller than my living room...the pool that is) has a very nice atmosphere and good drink specials. The customer service, however, could be a little better (had to wait almost 10 min before the waitress came to the table and greet us). The location of the hotel (next door to the airport, around the corner from the mall, and a short driving distance from the beach) made everything so convenient. With the exception of the "hidden charges" I would definitely go back.
