The Marriott at Los Angeles International Airport just broke ground on its meeting space renovation. This is the last step the hotel is taking on its way to completing a $50 million transformation. The newly updated and redesigned meeting space, which is nearly 50,000 square feet, will debut soon.

The setting is ideal for those who want to hold meetings near a huge travel hub. On the property are 29 meeting rooms, as well as a 12,320 square ft ballroom which can accommodate up to 1,700 guests. The property boasts a California-inspired design, where there are public areas set up for collaboration and connection with other like-minded business people. Rooms are conveniently located all on one floor and offer state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, as well as RFID locks and electronic reader boards.

LAX Marriott just completed the first phase of a huge renovation, which transformed the hotel into something more for its guests. Now, it's a center of innovation and exploration. The hotel is perfectly located as it's only a few minutes from LAX.

At the property, guests can enjoy stylish guest rooms, and a 4,000 square foot lounge complete with panoramic views of the runways as well as the Hollywood sign and downtown Los Angeles.

In addition to being located close to downtown Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach and an abundance of restaurants, museums and boutiques, the hotel celebrates the nostalgia of the old times in Hollywood but is looking to the future with its buzzing and energetic vibe. With plenty of places to relax and recharge, including a resort-style pool, the LAX Marriott property offers it all.
