Crowne Plaza International Airport Hotel (Los Angeles)

4 Case Rating


Location
Hotel is located within the vicinity of LAX on W. Century Blvd, there is a blue bus that regularly goes every 15 minutes between airport (all terminals) and hotel. There is nothing much to walk to in the area just large parking lots etc.

Room

The newly renovated executive king on the 14th floor (Quiet Zone) was a spacious room that offered a large king size bed, high and very comfortable bedding. Each side had a bed side table that offered flexible reading lights attached to the bed, plus standard lamps. Easy accessible US plugs below and an alarm clock (that also one can plug a USB socket into or use via bluetooth to use as a speaker) one side and telephone the other.
The room also offered a large chair and foot rest, large desk, lamp and plugs – fairly good place to work from. The TV was on a large unit that offered full cable channels and pay per view. Within the unit was a coffee machine and also a luggage rack. One item missing is no fridge or mini bar.
The bathroom was spacious and included a combo bath and shower with Temple spa amenities of soap, shampoo, body lotion, vanity kit and conditioner plus a bottle of water. Dental/shaver kits appear to be on request, actual bedroom also offers the Temple spa Aromatherapy sleeping spray, face moisturising and cream for tired legs plus ear plugs- overall very nice.
Digital AC is offered and in addition a separate unit for heating. I did notice any wardrobe or safe which was odd but may of just missed this.
Overall the room was comfortable with nice fitting but despite being newly renovated room 1442 did have some scrapes on the walls and could do with a paint job. The windows though double glazing there was some noise heard like hoovering on below floor, not sure what it was but it was quite annoying. However hotel do offer ear plugs. Saying that comfortable and functional for working room.

Facilities

Hotel offers WIFI- mine was free not sure if it generally is. Worked fast for multiple devices with pass code.
Catering facilities included 3 restaurants, a sports bar with a large menu from burgers to fish etc. A coffee shop which also is a wood pizza bar- quite nice pizza but very greasy- dripped thru my take-away box before i got to room. There is also a sushi bar as well but that opens at 5pm and i was looking for lunch.
Business facilities include conference facilities and meeting rooms, plus about 6 or 8 computers located on a desk by reception- which also offered a printer.
Leisure facilities included a outdoor heated pool and a gym but did not get a chance to see these, the weather was not great at LAX at time of visit. There is also a salon, concierge desk, ATM, a nice souvenir and convient store within the building.
Overall excellent facilities for an airport hotel.

Staff

Staff at check-in were nice , though check-in clerk was very attentive and tried doc hare credit card for a pre-paid booking but once explained he apologised. Check out was smooth and staff in shop and restaurant were quite friendly.
Overall a decent airport hotel option, not sure of the other 5 stars but Crowne plaza does look like one of the oldest, at least in public areas but the bed and room was very comfortable with amble amenities- I would definitely say here again.

The Verdict

Comfortable room bed with nice amenities and decent free WIFI but you can hear planes and for some reason no safe or wardrobe. Comprehensive facilities are offered but all quite dated. Staff could do with being less robotic and bit more enthusiastic and welcoming especially in the shop.
