7 Hotels Walking Distance of LAX Airport

LA traffic can be crazy. So much so that if I have an early flight out of LAX, I choose to stay in a hotel within walking distance of the airport.

Staying in a hotel close to LAX takes the stress out of fighting the city’s traffic. Instead, you arrive at LAX relaxed, refreshed, and ready to go.

LAX Airport is one of the largest airports in the world, with nine terminals. Therefore, although you can walk from these hotels to LAX, it’s not always advisable. Thankfully, these hotels also have a free shuttle to every LAX terminal.

  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.
