Custom Hotel

"The airport stay is now officially cool," claims this 1960's-style boutique hotel not far from LAX and the beaches (3 ½ and 1 ½ miles away, respectively). Located in a mid-century building designed by Welton Beckett, Custom Hotel sports a design style that recalls the set of Mad Men (or the Mod Squad, depending on which floor you’re on). Accommodations include 250 well-appointed rooms decorated in a retro-chic style, each floor featuring its own design concept. As for dining, Chef Katsuo Nagasawa prepares innovative cuisine creations with a Pacific Rim spin, and his swanky DECK33 Bar Restaurant overlooks the hotel’s stadium-style sun deck and pool.
