Way back in the summer of 2014 Hyatt took control of the Radisson LAX  (the closest hotel to the airport) and began a slow (very!) makeover of the property. Because it wasn’t up to Hyatt’s standards the one-time Radisson LAX became the Concourse Hotel and wasn’t branded with the Hyatt name.

Now, even though the renovation project still isn’t completed (estimates have it competing in January 2017) Hyatt clearly feels comfortable with what the property has to offer and so has rebranded it the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles Airport.

This is what Hyatt has to say:

Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport pushes boundaries of innovation and design with vibrant mid-century modern furnishings in each guestroom, including the Hyatt Grand Bed, the market-leading wall-mounted 55-inch television with HDMI streaming capabilities, free high-speed Wi-Fi internet, and tranquility sliding door on a well-lit modern bathroom with rain shower head. All spaces in the guestroom have been thoughtfully designed for ease of working, relaxing and staying connected to who, and what, is most important to guests at any time.

Although the renovation works are still ongoing some of the things the hotel has planned sound pretty good:

Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport will launch two new exciting culinary experiences, led by seasoned Executive Chef Charles Fusco, in the hotel’s redesigned lobby on January 1, 2017. Open Market will feature stations designed around convenience and community, with grab-and-go salads and sandwiches, an Illy Café for coffee and pastries, soup and noodles, and made-to-order crafted items. Unity LA, will be available for all-day dining. Menus for Open Market and Unity LA focus on Asian and Latin American cuisines that bring the best of L.A.’s ethnic neighborhoods to hotel guests, including Boyle Heights, Monterey Park, Koreatown, Thai Town, Chinatown, Little Tokyo/Arts District, Echo Park, and Downtown L.A.

I’ve shied away from booking this property in the past because I’ve found considerably better rates at other airport hotels that I’m happy to stay at – like the Hilton LAX (reviewed here), the Sheraton Gateway LAX or even the Westin – but a quick search just now (for dates in November) is showing that the Hyatt Regency’s rates are more or less in line with what those hotels are offering so perhaps it’s time to check it out.

While I probably wouldn’t book this property with just Gold Passport points, the points & cash option is definitely one to consider:


With midweek rack rates often over $200/night using 6,000 points could save you over $125….and that’s a return of over 2 cents/per point.

Sure that’s not stunning or particularly exciting, but as I value Hyatt points around 1.3 cents each that’s a pretty good redemption in my eyes.

I’m not flying through LAX any time soon but if anyone else books a stay please report back and let us know what it was like.
