As I was returning to the Renaissance LAX yesterday afternoon, I was greeted in the lobby by a smiling staff member serving sangria (and the sangria was tasty and refreshing) to guests entering the hotel.
A nice touch.
Additional kudos and recognition for Christina T, the property's Guest Services Supervisor ,for warm and responsive communication and follow-up before, during, and after my stay.
ssindc, I agree that the Ren LAX is great. We stay there when flying to/from/through LAX. My kids are still raving about the chocolate layer cake they serve in the restaurant.
I stayed there last year and after my first visit, I went back a week later. The weekend breakfast is amazing for gold and plat members. If you need a hotel near LAX, this is a great choice. Give yourself a bit of extra time to get to the airport even though it's so close. We had to wait for a couple of buses since the first one that came couldn't hold all of us waiting. But that may have been unusual. Regardless, we'd happily go back.
