Stay Here Now – Ritz Carlton Marina Del Rey
The closest luxury hotel to LAX is undoubtedly the Ritz Carlton Marina Del Rey. Located just ten minutes away with no traffic and boasting all that you know and love about Ritz Carlton hotels: an amazing spa, great pool, bar and restaurant and the highest quality rooms with views of the marina. The rooms themselves are perfect to prep for your trip or enjoy a few days while checking out Los Angeles. The hotel is good for singles, couples and families with active pool days, tennis and kids camps as well as a fun restaurant and bar scene at night. They are about to undertake a huge renovation in their dining program and this January we’ll have a new restaurant to enjoy. In the mean time the current restaurant offers upscale dining, a casual patio area perfect for happy hour with friends, surrounded by the boats of Marina Del Rey. If it’s cold then they will bring around heat lamps and fluffy blankets.
Both the hotel and the spa offer packages specifically for LAX travelers. The hotel will arrange for a town car pick up at LAX, transportation to and from the hotel, a room for a half-day and a dining voucher. The spa offers a separate package that is directed to the weary traveler whose body may be stiff from 10-hour flights. The spa package includes an incredible massage (ask for Carlo), lunch with selections such as lobster Cobb salad with huge chunks of lobster prepared by the Ritz Carlton dining team lead by Executive Chef Umit Kaygusuz. The package also includes a glass of wine, access to the pool and spa facilities, and a gift bag including product such as tonics to spray on your face while flying to help eliminate dehydration of your skin.
