Why are the best hotels near LAX?

I was searching for a hotel in LA and I noticed that many of the best hotels were located near to the LAX.

Is there any reason for that? Is it a good location to stay or is it too far from city centre? If it's too far, can you recommend something good close to city centre?

hey marcos!

since LAX is a major travel hub, there are a lot of hotels around the airport where you'll find a lot of business travelers. those hotels are typically bigger, well known chains like marriott, radisson, etc. there are PLENTY of great hotels spread all throughout LA.

what you consider the "city centre" really depends on what you are interested in doing in the city. LA is a driving city with a lot of unpredictable traffic. be prepared to spend a lot of time in the car. depending on what parts of LA you want to visit, i would find something that's in the middle of it all. 

all the way east is downtown - a very up and coming area with a lot of character - there is The Standard Downtown LA

west hollywood is more central with lots of night life within walking distance and high end restaurants The Standard, Hollywood and The London West Hollywood Hotel could be great options

SLS at Beverly Hills is very swank and chic neighbored by some great restaurants 

The W Hotel Los Angeles - Westwood is right by UCLA and there are some cheap eats/shopping as well as higher end restaurants

for the true california beach experience, Shutters On the Beach in santa monica could be a great option. 

enjoy your stay!

Probably because LAX is centrally located close to beach cities - about 10 - 30 min to areas like Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Manhattan Beach to Hermosa Beach, to name a few. Here's a good summary of things to do if you're staying by LAX area.  I've stayed at Courtyard by Marriott by LAX prior and I enjoyed the experience there. Very modern and clean.

It's definitely far for the city center. But technically we have no city center just Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica are pretty populated. But it depends on where you want be or what you want to see. Even places like Silverlake  has great eats and restaurants.  Great hotels are the W Hotel Hollywood and the hotels on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Mentioned in this answer:

  1. Downtown Los Angeles (metro area)
  2. Santa Monica (city)
  3. Silverlake (neighborhood)
  4. W Hotel Hollywood (hotel)
  5. Pacific Coast Highway (attraction)

Some of the best hotels are actually in downtown LA: The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites & The W Los Angeles - Westwood.
