Great location--great price

Great location, great rooms. Sparsely furnished but certainly adequate. Just thought the hotel personnel could have been more helpful and friendly esp the people at the desk. Loved the pool and outdoor area.

Pleasantly Surprised

My trip started with being picked up at LAX by a friendly driver in the Custom Hotel shuttle. The front desk staff were very welcoming. My room was on the top floor with a distant view of the ocean. After dinner upon returning to my room I found a condolence card with a Starbucks gift card inside. My cousin who was also staying at the hotel mentioned to the front desk that we were there for our aunt's funeral and that I had just lost my mother so they responded with this lovely gesture. I loved the concept lounges on multiple floors, close proximity to LAX, Venice, Marina Del Rey and all that LA has to offer. Plus the price was right. I will definitely consider this hotel for future LA visits.

Nice and contemporary

Stayed here on my last visit to LA. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a contemporary feel to it. Some of the amenities i.e. bathtub and sink are a little old or have cracked surfaces. But nothing too alarming and not a safety issue. Great, tasty breakfast buffet. Close to LAX and pacific hwy. I would definititely stay here again.

Convenient, Clean and Comfortable

This is a great location close to LAX but without even a hint of airport noise. There are several shops and restaurants in easy walking distance. The grocery store right next door is open late and is very convenient. Major arterials provide easy and quick access by car to the rest of LA. The staff was friendly and helpful, particularly the valet service. My room was very clean and comfortable and I even had a bit of ocean view. The decor was very modern with a funky twist. My only complaint is that the wireless, free internet service provided for guests had somewhat weak signal strength and at times lost connection entirely. Overall I had a great stay!

Great for short trips

if you're in the L.A. area for a few days, this hotel will serve all your needs! for me the proximity to LAX was very important, and customs hotel is a very short drive to it. Venice beach is not too far as well, which makes a difference if you're looking for a place to visit in a short time! over all this place is good for the money you pay for it.
