    Thumbs up Non-Rev Layover Survival Guide

    Even with meticulous planning we all know that as non-revs we are at the mercy of fluctuating loads, mechanicals, late arriving flights and the ripple effect of weather and computer issues - the non-rev gods can be a fickle bunch.
    So this guide is for those that find themselves stuck (between flights or overnight) at the airport. Please add to the list with your own home airport layover guide.
    LAX
    LAX Day Use Hotel
    Travelodge at LAX - Best Los Angeles Hotels Motels: Travelodge at LAX Hotel, Los Angeles, California - Next to LAX airport

    Hours are 9am to 8pm check-in may be delayed based upon availability.
    Rate is $74.95 for 2 and $79.95 for up to 4 + tax (Breakfast is included if you arrive during breakfast hours (6am-9am)
    Free 24/7 shuttle – you must call for pick-up
    Call the hotel 310-649-4000 or toll free at 1-800-421-3939


    The Beach
    If you have a couple of hours and want some sun, sand and cresting waves, go to the beach- Manhattan Beach, (the Creamery- great ice-cream) Redonda Beach, Santa Monica. Uber/Lyft pickups/drop-offs are on the upper departures level


    LAX Overnight

    The Fairfield Inn & Suites Los Angles LAX/El Segundo (formerly the Hacienda Hotel).
    Extended Stay Hotel Near LAX | Fairfield Inn & Suites Los Angeles LAX El Segundo

    The hotel is close to the airport (maybe a 5-minute drive) has a 24/7 every ˝ hour shuttle - you must call for pick-up, BUT what sets this hotel apart from the numerous hotels around LAX and the reason I recommend it (even though some of the rooms are a little noisy - airplanes) is because of the nearby (right across the street) strip mall. There’s a bank(Chase), a grocery store, several fast food places AND…… an In-N-Out Burger (arguably the best burger in California if not the entire U.S.) The hotel offers a free breakfast and wi-fi. Depending on occupancy, it does offer an airline rate, but no day rate.

    Hacienda--Did they rebuild the structure? Is the restaurant still there? What about the courtyard lounge area?
    Thanks for all this info; as zedman said, this could come in very handy, particularly for east of the Mississippi travelers!

    OK, here’s what I know, the former Hacienda (600 rooms) was split into two separate properties – the Fairfield (the former north building) 350 “refurbished” rooms and the Aloft EL Segundo (the former south tower) 246 “renovated” rooms and a new 2-story, floor-to ceiling windows, lobby building. I haven’t been in either hotel since the redo, but I’ve heard * a little birdy* that the Fairfield does have a courtyard/pool/fire pit area, but no lounge.
