Great place to stay

Great hotel. Very clean, nice room. The bed was a little different. It only had the box frame and one mattress, so it was low in the ground. Bed was a little noisy when bouncing on it. Some paint was chipping off in the shower. Other tha. That it was great, used wifi with no problem. I would definitely stay there again. Cool modern look. Not to much noise considering it's next to the airport.

Short business trip

Chose Custom Hotel because of its proximity to the airport, but I also liked it because it is not an airport hotel (i.e., stuck at the airport). Plenty of stuff to do in surrounding area. Rooms were suprisingly quiet given its proximity to airport. Coffee in room is lame (but has anyone found in-room coffee that is not lame?). Cool bar above pool area, though young bartender served me a Manhatten "neat" when I clearly said "up". Also, for the price, the pour was on the skimpy side. Would definitely stay here again.

Quick LA weekend

I do love this hotel, so cozy. Great vallet and beds are comfy. Would of loved being closer to the beach but this was great for where I had to be and for prices. Custom staff is very friendly and accommodating. Had a great stay. Maybe a full size tub would of been nice I do love bubble baths. (:

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

You could actually park your car yourself in the back. I've never had an issue before and it's way cheaper than vallet. There's so much parking and never heard of anything being a problem to park back there ever. So much parking and right next to the hotel so you save a lot on vallet.

Great hotel for the money!

Was in town to visit a friend and do some sightseeing. Hotel was a great purchase. Near Venice, and other beach towns and was a great value for a place we were only putting our heads to sleep. Would recommend this hotel to others.

One night stay

The room reminded us of a very comfortable dorm room! It was very clean and perfect for 1 night! No room service but there's a restaurant that delivers 24 hours which is pretty reasonably priced! Grocery store next door. 2 miles from LAX with nice complimentary airport shuttle. Overall a great stay

Perfect for the chic traveler

If you're chic and just in LA for a day or 2 layover, then this is the perfect hotel for you. We also had our 1-year old and they provided a good, solid crib. Had a 1 night layover on the way to Hawaii and liked the hotel so much, we stayed there again on the way back. Recommend!
