I'm with CWS on this one; Hilton LAX every time. The shuttle is quick and frequent, it's generally well prices and it has all the usual Hilton comforts, including Hhonors points.

Thanks for all of the responses, I suppose my goal in this was to see if there was a hotel attached to the terminal. A shuttle or taxi doesn't sound too bad but I doubt I'll be stopping for a burger unfortunately!

Was looking at the Hilton before but at $75 or $80 the Westin sounds like a decent call.

The Concourse Hotel (used to be a Radisson, it's now a Hyatt affiliate) is technically walking distance, but it's quite a walk to T4 (about 1 km).
I also used the LAX Hilton. Perfectly fine, and good facilities. We just missed a shuttle bus (it was pulling away as we approached) but it was only another 10-15 minutes until the next one, and it didn't take long.

I recently stayed at the Hyatt Place El Segundo. While the hotel is nice, rooms are ample and beds very comfortable, the problem is you have to call the shuttle to come and fetch you. And there seem to be some reception issues at LAX T4 so it was quite difficult to make the call with my own phone (I even had a US SIM card), and the Hyatt doesn't have any courtesy phone there. Even the guy manning the information/hoter bookings desk had never heard about the Hyatt Place (I guess they might have recently take over from other brand).
So in this case where the OP is in a tight schedule I would not reccomend this hotel.

The Hilton LAX served me well during my Thanksgiving layover, although their Executive Lounge was closed on that Thursday. I was given a voucher for continental breakfast in the downstairs restaurant as compensation. My corner Executive room was comfy and quite large.

The shuttle service was quick both ways despite heavy traffic on the way from the airport to the hotel.

All in all a good stay.

Last year, I stayed at the Crown Plaza in a king club room and found it to be perfectly acceptable. Even though I had a view of the airport and could hear some noise, it did not bother me in the slightest (and I am a light sleeper).

Radisson everytime for us. I like being able to walk it and not waiting for the shuttle bus. Its 10 minutes and we saw a lot of crew doing this. Got talking to a pilot for Alaska airlines last time who was very interesting.

ive done both the westin and the sheraton (hello spg points!).

i will say the sheraton has been more recently rennovated and overall a bit nicer than the westin (much to my surprise).

I've stayed in a few of the hotels on West Century Blvd. Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton Gateway, Radisson ( now The Concourse Hotel ) To be honest not much to choose between them. So unless you have some status with a chain, for such a short stay I'd just go for whatever is the cheapest. Although I've heard The Concourse which is the closest to LAX is looking a little run down now, but I've seen it as low as £35.

All the hotels between The Concourse and Hilton are easily walkable to all LAX terminals if you only have carry on / 1 piece of larger luggage.

Just booked the Hilton for an overnight on the way to HNL. It will be in November and I reckon I will be needing the stay to maintain my Diamond status for 2016 by then. Price pretty good at $109 compared to HNL!!

Not to drag this thread off-topic, but why anyone would choose to eat a hotel burger near LAX is beyond me, when In-N-Out is pretty much on the airport property It's easy ride on the Parking Spot shuttle bus, and totally do-able with any layover of 2.5 hrs or more.

+1 to the idea of using priceline.com for a 1-night stay at LAX especially if points earning or status benefits are not important.

I've stayed at most of the hotels on and just off W Century, very often with PL. They're much of a muchness for a 1-night stay (though Hilton did comp me with a lounge breakfast, but I don't think they do that any more). My next two stays were booked with PL and turned out to be at the Westin @ $75 and $74. The links posted by oscietra are useful.

I usually pick up a car at LAX and hotel location can be relevant. Walking from the Marriott to the rental agencies is OK but for some, a shuttle bus to LAX and another to Hertz/Avis/whatever can do it if a little time consuming.

OT: I see that Fox car rental is adjacent to the Westin so walkable and rates via carrentals.com and holidayautos.com look good. I've never used them, nor heard of them. Has anybody any experience?

As for walking from hotels to LAX (I didn't know the Radisson had become The Concourse), I'd find walking from the Hilton and some others a walk too far and would stick to the shuttle bus.

For my run to Hawaii last month, I used "Express Booking" on Priceline (something I'm getting to quite like). It's bascially a mystery hotel, which you can sort by area and start rating.

For £54.79 (£45+tax) I ended up at the Wingate By Wyndham, which was perfectly acceptable for a few hours, and had free breakfast and shuttle. You can get 8% back on Quidco. I think the category was 2 1/2 star, but seemed a lot nicer than that.
