Hotel Review: Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport Hotel

The Concourse Hotel at Los Angeles Airport has been rebranded as the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport. This property was originally built in the 1960s as a Hyatt and has been rebranded a few times. When I stayed at the hotel it was the Concourse Hotel.

As of 2022, the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport is the closest hotel to LAX; a short walk or complimentary shuttle ride away makes it a great choice for an LAX hotel.

I wrote this article based on a trip to Loreto, Mexico with my son Roland. We lived in San Diego at the time and our flight was on the early side and departed from Los Angeles. Roland and I decided to take Amtrak from San Diego to Union Station the day before our flight to add another layer of fun to our trip.

When I was researching hotels near LAX I found Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport Hotel, which is the closest hotel to the LAX airport. It’s less than a block from the airport and a quick 5 min shuttle or walk to the hotel. The hotel is currently a Hyatt affiliate and during my visit in 2015, was under a massive renovation. It was a perfect time to check out what they have in store for the future Hyatt Regency.

After our train arrived at Union Station we took the FlyAway bus to LAX Airport where we picked up a shuttle to Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport Hotel. I had never tried FlyAway and wanted to check how easy and quick it was to get to the airport. The bus was air-conditioned and even with rush hour traffic, we were to the airport in about 20 minutes.

From the airport, we took the shuttle to the hotel. Quick and easy and truly just a few minutes away. We checked in and headed to our room to drop off our luggage. Our room was on the 10th floor and we stayed in room 1041.

The rooms that haven’t been renovated yet are basic. Two queen beds, desk, television. Fine for a one-night stay before a flight. But, the Hyatt has much more planned for this hotel.

Current room was not updated at the time of our stay.

I got a tour of the hotel and a sneak peek at the new room design, which is a bit retro and very sleek. All the new rooms will come with a 55” flat screen TV. The room I previewed had a king-size bed, a corner couch, and a sitting area with a table and chairs.

The room is bright and accented in yellow and tans and incorporates design and art, creating a much more modern look and feel.

While I was on my tour, Roland headed to the gym for a workout. The gym is equipped with Nautilus equipment and offers everything for a good workout.

In 2016 the hotel is experienced a total transformation of both guest rooms and public space. All rooms were slated for full renovation by November and the full hotel renovation was slated for spring of 2016. After the renovations, the hotel will be a Hyatt Regency.

The highlight of our visit to the hotel was dinner. Executive Chef Charles Fusco was recently brought on the team He has over 12 years of Hyatt experience giving him the perfect background to transition the restaurant and catering menus.

Roland and I dined in the Palmira restaurant. Our server was Juan, who has been with the hotel for 15 years. He knew the menu inside and out and was great with suggestions and working with Roland and me with our food allergies.

There are many gluten-free dishes on the menu which was great for me! The menu also offers many free-range, grass-fed, and sustainable meats and fish options. The seafood is brought in daily and everything on the menu is homemade.

Roland enjoyed a brand farm flat iron steak basted in salsa verde and house-cut fries.

I started dinner with a tomato soup with shaved fennel and for my main course, a Brown Sugar Dill Crusted Skuna Bay Salmon with Mustard Infused Beluga Lentils.

If this is the beginning of the transformation, I can’t wait to see what the final menu will feature!

Parting thoughts: I can’t wait to see the hotel after the full remodel. It’s the closest hotel to the airport and your best bet for accommodations for early morning flights.

Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport Hotel is located at 6225 W Century Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045
