Getting to the Westin

Driving directions to the Westin Bonaventure can be found on the hotel website.  The hotel is 0.3 miles from the 7th Street/Metro Center station (served by light rail, heavy rail, and the rapid bus system).

If travelling by air, you have many options:

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) – 18 miles southwest

  • Estimated taxi fare: $69.00 (one way)
  • An affordable and comfortable Flyaway bus from LAX to downtown LA Union Station is available. The bus is only $9.75 each way, runs every 30 minutes, has free wi-fi, and comes from every terminal at LAX.
  • From Union Station, take a Metro bus to Westin Bonaventura (Google map) Fare is $1.75
  • Visit LAX airport website
  • NOTE:  Although LAX has curbside areas at the terminals for taxi and shared ride pickup, curbside pickup incurs a huge (we have seen up to $70.00) surcharge.  If you do not want to incur the surcharge, do not book your ride at the terminal itself.  Instead, take the long walk (the signs underestimate the walk time) or take the free shuttle service to the LAXit taxi/shared ride area and make your ride booking arrangements from there.

Long Beach Airport (LBG) – 25 miles south

Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) – 16 miles northwest
