LA traffic is some of the worst we’ve ever experienced which can make many travellers consider an airport hotel for overnight layovers or early morning flights.
An airport hotel takes the stress out of fighting the city’s traffic and allows you to arrive at the airport refreshed and ready to go.
To help you find the best hotels near LAX we’ve put together this list and while all hotels here are within walking distance of the airport itself, the airport is incredibly large and therefore walking isn’t always advised.
Luckily, however, all of these hotels have a shuttle bus that runs from the hotel to the airport on a regular basis calling at all of the terminals.
