8 Hotels Within Walking Distance Of LAX Airport

Traffic in Los Angeles is some of the worst that we have experienced anywhere in the world. This can make many travellers (ourselves included) want to stay in a hotel within walking distance of Los Angeles Airport for overnight layovers and early morning flights.

Staying in a hotel close to Los Angeles Airport takes the stress out of fighting traffic in the city, and instead provides you with the opportunity to reach LAX early, refreshed and ready to go.

Being one of the busiest airports in the world, there are several hotels within walking distance of LAX. However, since the airport covers such a vast area, walking isn’t always advisable (especially if you have a lot of luggage).

Thankfully, all of these hotels also provide guests with a complimentary shuttle bus to all of the terminals. So if you don’t want to walk to LAX, you can still take the shuttle and be at the airport terminal in less than 30 minutes.

Los Angeles Travel Planning Guide

🏥 Should I Buy Travel Insurance for a Trip to Los Angeles?

Yes, you should definitely buy travel insurance for any vacation to Los Angeles. Basic travel insurance coverage with Safety Wing averages between $5 – $10 per day and offers peace of mind.

🚘 Do I Need to Rent a Car for a Trip to Los Angeles?

Whether you’ll want a rental car in Los Angeles will really depend on how long you’re visiting for and where you plan to go during your trip. The traffic in Los Angeles is notoriously crazy, yet, public transport is still somewhat limited.

If you do decide to hire a car in Los Angeles, then I’d recommend using Discover Cars to find the best car rental deals.

🏨 Where to Stay in Los Angeles?

The best place to stay in Los Angeles will really depend on what you plan to do most during your trip. If you’re planning to visit Disneyland, for example, then staying in a hotel in Anaheim is likely going to be best.

Alternatively, if you’re planning on exploring the city and visiting Universal Studios Hollywood, then I’d recommend Loews Hollywood.

If you’re looking for a little bit of luxury during your trip to LA, then a hotel in Beverly Hills is a great choice. However, if you’re looking for more of a beach vacation, then consider a hotel at Newport Beach.

When booking your accommodation in Los Angeles, I recommend using either Booking.com or Hotels.com. However, for large families and groups, VRBO is my number one choice.

  1. Hello! I would have a question: which hotel would you recommend when traveling with a toddler? We’ll be coming off a 13 hour flight and want to head straight to a hotel, but it could very well be that our toddler will wake in the middle of the night due to Jetlag, so was thinking if there were pools at the hotel or beaches nearby that we could walk to without disturbing people at weird hours, that might be important. Thoughts?

    1. Hi Kat, we recently travelled from the UK to LA with our eight-month-old. Surprisingly, jet lag wasn’t a major issue so hopefully, you have the same good luck we had. That being said, I’d likely recommend the Hyatt Regency for your situation or the Hampton Inn & Suites at El Segundo. Both of these hotels have swimming pools, however, sadly they aren’t open 24/7. They do however have large TVs with cable channels and food and drink options available at all hours. Sadly, the beach is roughly a 4.5-mile walk from both these hotels, so you would have to take an Uber (roughly 15 mins and $25 depending on traffic).

  2. Hi: I’m a solo traveller aged 79 who will be flying from Toronto to LAX on April 3, 2024, arriving early evening. I’ll need a hotel/motel for the nights of April 3 and 4 before boarding a Princess cruise ship April 5 in San Pedro. This will be my first visit to LA and I’m hoping you can advise re where to stay in order to: 1. Do some sightseeing in LA and 2. Wake up on April 5 close to the cruise terminal. Your thoughts on hotel or hotels and how to get around would be much appreciated.
