I’ve stayed at the Radisson LAX numerous times during the past few years in just about every type of room category. The differences are incredibly minor between non-suite categories with “better” rooms sporting a Sleep Number bed, mini-refrigerator, bathrobes and slightly upgraded bathroom amenities (vanity kit, mouthwash, bath gel and a loofah).
Most of those stays were simply mattress runs at super-cheap weekend rates ($60-$80/night) in connection with some type of Club Carlson promo. My last couple of times there, however, were at rates nearer $130/night and I received upgrades into both junior and deluxe suites as a Gold elite.
What they’re calling a junior suite is actually a two-room suite with a separate living room. You enter via the bedroom, which is the same size and layout of a standard room.
Through the glass door is the separate living room with two couches, another TV, mini-fridge and a second full bathroom. Note there’s no desk in this room.
I believe all of the junior suites are located next to the elevator bank with the living room closest to the elevators.
This suite is huge with an enormous living and dining area. The couches are notably better than those in the junior suite and this room is large enough for a separate desk area near the entry door.
The bedroom is the same size as a standard room, though it has a bit more space where the hallway exit door would normally be (this room doesn’t have a dual exit like the junior suite)
I’m a bit surprised Radisson LAX doesn’t list these suites as bookable options – at least I’ve never seen them offered as a for-sale category in my dozens of times booking this hotel.
This property is definitely in need of a top-to-bottom refresh, though it is a step-up from other LAX hotels (think Holiday Inn and La Quinta).
