The Hilton at the Los Angeles airport is as near to the terminals as you can get without actually being inside the airport. This was the first time I had stayed at this particular Hilton and I must say, I am impressed. We were upgraded to the 17th floor in the tower section and had an impressive view of the flightline activities. Our room was surprisingly quiet, even with all of the runway activity. The lobby is simple but elegant, and there was a separate check in area for diamond members which I appreciated. As is standard with Hilton properties there is an on-site restaurant, bar, breakfast area, and executive lounge. The airport shuttle service is complimentary and runs 24 hours with vehicles arriving every 20 minutes.
