Adjacent to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and with views of the LAX runways, the Hyatt Place LAX/Century Blvd and Hyatt House LAX/Century Blvd have opened as the first dual-branded Hyatt hotel development in the Los Angeles area.
Originally built in 1967 by architect Welton Becket, who was also behind LAX’s Theme Building, the new dual-branded hotel development features a mid-century modern design, the tallest rooftop terrace and only outdoor rooftop pool in the airport district and two restaurants from Greenleaf Kitchen & Cocktails.
With design led by carrier johnson + CULTURE, the hotels feature a mid-century modern aesthetic inspired by the building’s 1960s architecture. Colorful artwork throughout the hotels, curated by Kalisher, is a nod to the Southern California lifestyle with imagery inspired by the geography, activities and lifestyle, such as surfers and skateboarders, waves crashing and palm trees swaying.
