Aloft LAX: Be Careful Not to Miss Your Flight

The Aloft LAX Airport Hotel Review is part of the South America & Africa Points Heist Trip Report.

Behold, the City of Angels! Well, you can’t behold it for too long. Chances are that you are only in town for a few hours if you are staying at the Aloft El Segundo LA Airport. En route to Peru, I had sixteen hours in Los Angeles. This provided a perfect opportunity to see some friends and catch up on my drinking. That proved costly as too many margaritas made for a rough day ahead.

Getting There

The Aloft shuttle leaves to the airport twice an hour. On the way to the hotel, it stops at the Fairfield. I was told to switch shuttles and that the next stop‎ would be the Aloft. I waited for ten minutes for the shuttle to leave. Thirty seconds later, I was at the Aloft.

TPOL’s TIP: Walk to the Aloft, it’s right next door.

The Hotel Itself

The hotel is hip and W-ish.

The Pool

If you are a loner, consider staying at the hotel after grabbing some In N Out (the most overrated burger, contrast with the Mo Club, one of the world’s greatest burgers). The hotel has a beautiful pool that will make you think you’re in Vegas or a more swanky LA neighborhood.

Welcome Amenity

Gummy bears and white or red vines and red? Those were the choices for the welcome amenity. That’s a pretty clever concept that is consistent with the easy going atmosphere of Aloft hotels.

The Room

The room is standard Aloft ‎elegance. One day I’ll grab one of these Aloft pillows for my personal collection.

The Bathroom

The bathroom was different than other Alofts because of the aggressive orange paint. Of course, your favorite Aloft soaps are there to soap and sud the In N Out oil off your fat belly or the post tequila binge.

Aloft continues to be my favorite airport hotel. This one would be worth staying at for the pool alone, and for the fact that it is so close to the airport should you enjoy Sunday irresponsibly and are in a hurry to make your flight.
