Ciao piacere di conoscerti,allora io più che Los Angeles "anche se sono stato parecchie volte" conosco più Long Beach....E' abbastanza lontanuccio,dalle parti di Beverly Hills se nn sbaglio quindi quando vai a Hollywood lo stesso giorno ti consiglio di passare da la'....ti preannuncio già che a Hollywood vedrai ben poco....ogni studio ha un prezzo e ci vogliono giorni per vederlo per bene....comunque io ti consiglio di rimare li' perché sei proprio nel pieno della città per cui con bus e taxi ti e' facile raggiungere vari posto,probabilmente avranno scelto questo hotel per la comodità' del trasporto dall'aereoporto proprio perché non dista tantissimo....spero di esserti stato di aiuto.
What the other reviewer wrote about the shuttle service is correct. A few additional details: this shuttle is contracted-out to an outside company, meaning it's not owned and operated by the hotels. This is typical for LAX, although some hotels do have their own shuttle busses, with their own obvious brand-signage plastered on the sides. But what you'll look out for, is a "generic looking" blue-in-color (as I remember) medium-sized shuttle bus, which has "La Quinta - LAX" and "Holiday Inn - LAX" alternatively "flashing" in a light sign at the front of the bus. The shuttle comes around every 20 minutes or so, although at times it can be longer; but it will eventually get there. There is no way to call the hotel to specifically ask for the shuttle, because again, it is contracted out and not run by the hotel itself. As far as "hectic," yes, LAX is (to me at least) the most hectic and seemingly disorganized major airport to which I have been. There are specifically-designated areas outside each of the major terminals, along the circle airport road for "Hotel Shuttles" (signs above are pretty clear). But this is where all the shuttles stop and go. And so when you have several of these shuttles arriving and loading, it looks very messy and noisy; not a good impression. Just be patient and it will all work out. If you get in a bind, just ask around and there will be plenty of people, likely in the same situation, who can help.
