I believe there are bedside sockets (behind the clock on your photo?) - very few US properties these days lack them, even if they are included in the bases of the lamp.
Cardboard (styrofoam) cups are standard, although ceramic mugs are found at higher end properties as well.

Interesting experience this morning as I was sitting out front of the hotel drinking my morning coffee. Within the span of 20 minutes there were 4 shuttles roll through. I dont normally take the shuttle as I walk but I always thought the schedule was every 20 minutes. I did notice that the shuttle says it was shared with Spectrum parking so not sure if that is new and has something to do with the shuttles being so frequent?

Cheers.. That had been my understanding but I just wanted to see if it was still the case.

I've had good success their with upgrades to club rooms on every visit. I tend to alternate between the Hilton and CP on trips through LAX so it's time for the CP this trip.

I take it that they haven't resolved the morning harassment, I mean protesters, yet?

Is that STILL going on?

It's at the point where I have to wonder how it's not disturbing the peace/harassment.

Assuming it's still going on the same as it has been, I'm really surprised that they can't at least get some sort of a court order where are the protesters can't start with their bull horns until a more civilized hour of at least 9 a.m.?

As I understand it, it is union organizers unhappy with the labor situation at the hotel.

I didn't hear or see them today. I had an early breakfast up in the lounge but I walked down Century at 8AM to pick up rental car. I'm sure I would have heard them.

BTW, I've never had weekend or holiday breakfasts comped here. Never manged a club level upgrade either...

I did get double welcome bonus points this stay because I arrived just after the end of happy hour.

I've just arrived here now. Upgraded to a Club Room and currently being entertained by Tony in the lounge.

Received vouchers for breakfast on Sat/Sun mornings and a drink voucher for Sat night.

No idea if the strike is still on, but having been in San Francisco and San Diego I saw industrial action at a few hotels including the Westin's in both cities.

Thanks for reporting recent experience on benefits. The benefits at this property makes it my favorite to stay at for a weekend.
