The 152-room Cambria LAX opened in May 2017, is well-suited for the modern traveller. Equally close to Manhattan Beach (watch the sunset) and the airport (LAX is a hub for many international flights). With tones of cyan, gold and grey, and geometric pendant lighting, the hotel lobby feels open, airy and inviting, and rooms continue with this simple, urban vibe. Techies will love innovations like mirrors with built-in blue-tooth speakers. Visit the hotels on-site restaurant (with accompanying bar) and try creative dishes like the roasted cauliflower with jalapeno hummus, South Bay Fish Tacos, and steak sate. The hotel also features a fitness centre and boasts an outdoor space with fire pit, and cabanas by the pool.
