Custom Hotel Review

Close enough to LAX to see the runways, the Custom Hotel is a playful and practical redo of a 12-story, mid-century modern tower by famed L.A. architect Welton Beckett (of Hollywood's Capitol Records' building and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion). Playful touches include sheep-shaped chairs "roaming" in the lobby, and a sociable pool bar with fire-pit and DJs. Practical details include the soundproofed windows, ample bedside lighting, and free LAX shuttle. Close to all the beach towns with a decent public park across the street, the hotel is a welcome addition to the Westside's often pricey stays.
