The Doubletree Hotel Torrance/South Bay is situated amidst the second largest shopping center in the country and a vast array of restaurants on "Restaurant Row." Located in Torrance, the hotel is just two miles from the beach and eight miles south of the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The hotel facade and landscaping are enhanced by 20-30ft palm trees and a cascading fountain, as you arrive under the Porte Cache. An open atrium setting with skylights, marble, glass, and lush florals is reminiscent of European elegance and grace - until the kids start running around it! The 12-story tower and garden courtyard feature 371 newly-renovated, luxurious guest rooms. An extensive public area renovation includes total redesign of the lobby. Kids will enjoy the cable TV with built-in video games, but try to pry them out to see the sights, too, or at least get them to try out the pool! Families with younger kids can take advantage of cribs and high chairs if needed, and the children's menu in the restaurant. No pets are allowed. There is a AAA discount.
