LAX Layover Disaster HELP
First time poster but long time follower hoping to get some advice.
I’ll be flying home to Ireland next week, this involves arriving in LAX at 10pm and leaving the following day at 11.30pm (Ethiopian Airlines LAX-Dublin).
With nearly 24 hours in LAX I’m hoping for some help, ideally I’d love to shower just before going to the airport/in the airport.
Can anyone recommend a hotel that has a shower with the gym that might be possible to use later in the day than 11am? Or a lounge that I could buy access too?
Thank you in advance for the help!
Welcome [USER=3452]@Aoife[/USER] – Here’s a link to the Sleeping In Airports site that has good info on the lounges and which ones you’d be able to pay to use: [URL]http://www.sleepinginairports.net/usa/losangeles.htm#lounge[/URL]
A couple years ago on a trip from the US East Coast to Australia, I had a similar long layover in LAX. I actually reached out to the Marriott LAX on social media and asked if I could purchase a pass to use their gym/pool/showers for the afternoon. I did reference that I was a Platinum member, and they actually let me use the facilities for free.
I ended up printing out the conversation back and forth beforehand (facebook messenger), showed that to the front desk, and had zero issues.
If you have Priority Pass, then the Korean Air Lounge (in TBIT) has showers, I believe. Might be the only redeeming feature of that lounge…
