A new dual-branded Hyatt property has opened adjacent to Los Angeles International Airport, alongside the anticipated people-mover that is being constructed as part of the airport's renovation. Hyatt's first dual-branded development in Greater L.A. consists of the 272-room Hyatt Place LAX/Century Blvd. and the 129-room Hyatt House LAX/Century Blvd.
The hotels occupy a mid-century modern building constructed in 1967 by famed architect Welton Becket, and each incorporates elements of that aesthetic into their design — from the retrofitted waffle ceilings to the vintage pool table in the lobby. The properties also offer the tallest rooftop terrace and the only outdoor rooftop pool in the airport district, as well as two restaurants from Greenleaf Kitchen & Cocktails.
Aviation aficionados will appreciate the floor-to-ceiling windows in the guest rooms, with front-row views of arriving and departing planes. Rooms at the Hyatt Place offer a casual atmosphere and separate places for sleep, work and play, in addition to 24-hour food offerings. The Hyatt House provides apartment-style suites, with kitchens and living rooms.
Among the shared amenities are the two restaurants. The F&B group's signature Greenleaf Kitchen & Cocktails healthy gourmet establishment is on the lobby level, offering items like salads, vegan burgers and roasted squash, and with both indoor and outdoor seating options. Greenleaf's first upscale dining concept, ShoresLAX, is on the 15th-floor rooftop and features 360-degree views of LAX and the surrounding landscape. Greenleaf is open 6:30 a.m.-3 p.m. and ShoresLAX from 4 p.m.-midnight.
ShoresLAX can hold up to 100 people for private buyouts, and Greenleaf offers 2,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor space for semi-private receptions of up to 150. The properties have a combined 3,100 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, including two traditional meeting rooms.
