Cambria Hotel and Suites
The hotel is not your normal airport hotel, in fact in is in the middle of four corporate office blocks including Mattel. For me this was perfect as it was quiet and with no noise such as traffic. I loved the clean simple furnished rooms, the ability to do laundry plus being able to relax by the pool and the patio area in the evening in front of the log fire heater.
In terms of eating, there’s a host of restaurants just a short walk away. It took me around 10 minutes to walk to Five Guy’s which is just around the corner with Starbucks and several other restaurants. There is also a huge Walgreens and Ralph’s supermarket there too.
If you like walking, then the Manhattan Village Shopping Mall, Best Buy and Fry’s are about a 20 minute nice walk away. Getting around was easy too. The beaches were a short $8 Uber ride away and I used Uber to go to Santa Monica too which cost $20.
The hotel does offer a free shuttle to LAX which is shared with two other hotels and an off airport parking company who supply the shuttle. I only used it once and it was fine. Just make sure that you leave yourself plenty of time if using.
All in all this was a great a hotel for me and I will be back next time I am in Los Angeles.
