Hi folks, I'm planning flying over from Scotland for a few days spotting and photography at LAX in the springtime and wondered which of the airport hotels would offer a decent view across the airport for a bit of window viewing as well as all the rest I'm planning to do. Not been in LA since 2002 and stayed in Hollywood area that time, so any advice appreciated. thanks !

I'd say Hotel Embassy LA Int Airport South. Not the cheapest hotel and quite fancy, but nothing can beat that view.

Lots of hotels have good views.
Hyatt Regency which is the closest hotel to the terminal loop has views especially on South facing rooms plus its bar on the top floor. Hilton also on South facing rooms which overlook the 25 runway complex takeoff position. The H Hotel has an outdoor roof observation deck ( https://www.hhotellosangeles.com/meetin ... /overlook/ )

Live in a rental van at In-N-Out Burger. OK, maybe switch to a hotel for some of the days.

The observation deck is still open at LAX, but only on the second Saturday of each month. If you can time your visit as such, that's an incredible place to spot!

Shameless plug for my YouTube videos:

I stayed at the airport Hilton when I was there last and had some great views. It's even better with Hilton because with their app you can pick which room you want.

I spent the whole morning with the Live ATC app playing and just staring out the window.

Now that is a window I could sit at all day too. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone.

Or you can stay at the Hacienda in El Segundo and watch the crowd from the Star Wars bar scene come and go.

I've owned in PS for 5 years and relocated here in May 2018. If you have any questions or need any help, give a shout out. I freaking love it here -- love my tiny airport with a 5 minute trip curb to gate. Love the tiny little village feel. I can't say enough positive.
