On a recent trip, I found myself with about 9 hours in Los Angeles, and decided to stay overnight at the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Airport, which is a Starwood Category 4 property meaning free nights start at 10,000 SPG points per night.
I arrived into LAX around 10pm on a Friday night, and made my way outside where I had to wait over 30 minutes for a shuttle to come, so I was a bit disappointed in how long the shuttles for this hotel come, so beware if thinking of staying here. However, if you arrive in at Terminal 1, it’s not that long of a walk to the hotel so you may want to consider walking as an option.
Once I did arrive to the hotel, I was checked in quickly and upgraded to a junior suite due to my SPG Platinum status. I appreciated the upgrade, though I was only gonna be at the hotel for 8 hours.
The front desk agent was friendly and told me to take the 500 SPG points as my amenity, as the hotel had a club lounge, which is currently located on the 3rd floor. Something else to note, is that the property is under a current renovation and not all the rooms nor the club lounge is done yet.
My junior suite was only one large room but did feature a small dining room table, as well as seating area.
The hotel Club Lounge is currently located on the 3rd floor while the main one is still under renovation.
It was completely dead when I was there, and I left too early the next morning to see the breakfast spread.
No trip to LAX is complete without a stop at In N Out Burger which is exactly what I did. It’s about a 10 minute walk from the hotel and if you’re interested, you’ll head out the hotel and make a right onto Century Blvd, and then you make a left at Sepulveda Blvd, which is directly past the Concourse Hotel. Keep walking on Sepulveda and you’ll see In N Out up on your left.
Have you stayed at the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles, LAX Airport before? Feel free to comment below with your thoughts.
One last thing to note, is that my suite was not renovated, so I’d be interested in seeing what the renovated rooms look like, as well as the renovated club lounge, once that re-opens.
