Unlike some other LAX airport hotels, the building is only 7 floors, so the outdoor pool gets tons of sunlight and—we're not going to lie—there were some cuties out there. We loved the super retro lobby lounge and the free WiFi, and the 24-hour room service amped the "must stay here" factor. Oh, and best of all: the hotel recommendations include the likes of the super trendy Abbey bar and Bazaar by Jose Andres at SLS for dinner (Four Points LAX is a franchised property owned by SBE, so that knocks up the cool factor, too).
The hotel also just launched a "day room" service, where guests can check in after 8 am and check out before 5 pm for only $89 per day. Which means you can go nuts at Brewsters and lounge by the pool until sundown. Layovers never looked so good!
Rooms from $125. To book the day rate, visit http://www.fourpointslax.com/day-room-rental or call 866-716-8133 and ask for rate plan: DY
Next week we'll report on our experience at Newark's Courtyard by Marriott. After Mayor Cory Booker (and avid Tweeter) smacked down one of our followers who knocked the place without trying it, we went and did just that.
