Transportation Provider

Los Angeles International Airport is the largest and busiest airport in the Greater Los Angeles Area and the state of California, as well as being one of the largest international airports in the United States.

Transportation from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, Los Angles, Hotel via Taxi or shuttle service is an economical transportation option. The fare includes all tolls and other surcharges.

The cost of the shuttle service is a fraction of the cost for other transportation options. Depending on the time of transfer and destination, guests utilizing the shared ride service may make more than a single stop. Shuttle operators are uniformed service oriented professionals with a vast knowledge of the LA area.

The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites, Los Angeles is conveniently located in downtown's Financial District. We are situated near five major airports, including Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is approximately 20 minutes away. Both SuperShuttle and taxis are readily available at each airport's ground transportation area for convenient transport to the hotel.

Many major business and culture sites are within walking distance of our downtown location. The Los Angeles passenger terminal for Amtrak and the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit (Metro) are both located at Union Station, just two miles from the hotel. Doormen on the Figueroa and Flower Street entrances to the hotel will be happy to provide directions to local sites, while cabs are called by our bellman on Flower Street.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
