Cost of taxi from LAX to West Hollywood?

We are staying at the Andaz in West Hollywood for a few nights. Would you recommend getting taxi from LAX and how much would that be? Or using one of the shuttle companies? Thanks

Taxi would be around $60 USD, I would ask the hotel about shuttle advise.

Good luck

Taxi more convenient, but more expensive if there are only one or two of you. The shuttles can circle the airport to try and fill up, and can detour along the way to drop off other passengers. www.primetimeshuttle.com or www.supershuttle.com

The cost of the taxi will vary with the time of day and depending on the route. If you direct the driver to 'take La Cienega Bl' (pronounced Lah See-EN-eh-guh) instead of the freeway, the fare will be less. Transferring during midday or during most of the weekend (except late Sunday afternoon/early evening) will also be less expensive since the traffic will be lighter which will make the trip shorter which will cost less.

The distance of the route using the 304 freeway will be about 15 miles; using La Cienega, it will be about 12 miles. In LIGHT traffic, the fares would be as follows (transfer TIMES would be about the same, i.e. 30 minutes):

1. Freeway: $60 including 15% tip

2. La Cienega Bl: $50

During 'high traffic' periods, it can cost $10 or $15 more.

Thank you so much, that was really helpful. Think we will take a taxi, especially as it will be after an 11 hour flight!

There is one more option, and that is a private car, where you book in advance, and get quoted a fixed rate for the trip.

Taxis have a nasty thing called "wait time", where the meter goes up in heavy traffic, or just waiting at a Red light for more than just a few seconds.

Sorry. I meant to say 405 freeway above -- not 304 freeway
