Aloft El Segundo-LAX

Aloft El-Segundo-LAX

The Aloft El Segundo-LAX recently opened, and is located about a mile south of the airport. The hotel is located on El Segundo Boulevard, and there are several restaurants in the surrounding area, with a Whole Foods Market and bigger shopping center down the street.

Parking is plentiful, and complimentary at the time of my stay despite their website stating that self-parking was $14/day. The west side of the hotel sits along a residential street so it appears that you may be able to park there and avoid the parking fee.

Upon entering the hotel, the lobby is fairly large and open. Upon check-in, the front desk associate could see my reservation, but was somehow unable to process my check-in on the computer he was using. We had to wait until the other front desk agent had helped another guest before he could use that computer. For a hotel that has just recently opened, I thought that was unacceptable.

Beyond the “front desk” there is a 24/7 re:fuel market.

The wxyz bar is located along the back wall of the lobby.

Business Center

There is a small business center.

Hallway

The hallways are semi-dark with slate grey walls, and darker carpeting with splashes of blue and orange.

Upon entering the room, the bathroom is located to the left. The bathroom is on the smaller side.

Sink

There is a sink with ample counter space. Bliss amenities are provided.

Toilet

Shower

The toilet is wedged between the sink and shower. Thankfully, the shower door closes all the way, and you are not exposed like many designed bathrooms you find now.

Dress/Fridge/Coffee Maker/Safe

After exiting the bathroom, there is a dresser of sorts containing a safe, mini-fridge, two complimentary bottles of water, an ice bucket and coffee maker.

TV

Next to that is the TV with a small bench located underneath.

Desk

The desk is on the smaller side, but at least outlets are easily located.

Beds

The beds were on the firmer side, and although new, it felt like the beds were rather “springy”.

It’s nice to have another airport hotel option, especially one that is not located on Century Boulevard where traffic can be bad, and parking costs are outrageous.
