One night stay

The room reminded us of a very comfortable dorm room! It was very clean and perfect for 1 night! No room service but there's a restaurant that delivers 24 hours which is pretty reasonably priced! Grocery store next door. 2 miles from LAX with nice complimentary airport shuttle. Overall a great stay

Perfect for the chic traveler

If you're chic and just in LA for a day or 2 layover, then this is the perfect hotel for you. We also had our 1-year old and they provided a good, solid crib. Had a 1 night layover on the way to Hawaii and liked the hotel so much, we stayed there again on the way back. Recommend!

There is a grocery store next door, great in case you forget toiletries, need something from the farmacy or need a cup of coffee. Next to Otis College, so if you like art you can start by visiting the campuses gallery before you hit the Museums.

Nothing Special

Stayed here because it was close to a friend's house. Really nothing special about this place. Have to give credit for being quiet. Should I need to stay in this part of town I would probably stay again.

Best Location!!

I enjoyed my stay at the Custom Hotel. It was super convenient being so close to my project assignment. The restaurant / bar above the outdoor pool was a nice touch.

Good Value

Good value. Good location if want to be near LAX, venice, marina del mar and 25 mins from Hollywood. Hotel is made over. Everything is fine with this place, it's renovated and modern, not plush and overly comfortable, but acceptable. Walking distance to pretty good restaurants and small shopping center coffee bean etc adjacent to hotel. I walked to KC Crepes in the am at 9 and the lobby breakfast was bumping euro techno beats pretty loud which was slightly comedic. Lots of Euros checking in when I was. Front desk friendly and professional. Parking is on street. There's a garage next door but decided to valet as another reviewer said it was $20, but it was actually $27. Still a good rate nonetheless. Bed was more comfortable than I thought. I had a decent view on 6th floor. Decor in room is I don't know Euro Mod I guess. Not plush but not bad. I would recommend for the value and easy access. Would stay again but probably stay somewhere else with my family., unless it was a short stay.

Very nice stay

No major issues at this hotel. In a relatively good location. Far enough outside of the city so it's not too bad in price but you can still get into the city to do everything. Things like breakfast and parking were all extra but I think that's what you're going to find everywhere in this city. Good stay!
