The Transfer Lounge at the H Hotel (Los Angeles)

I have stayed at the H Hotel (Hilton - Curio Collection) twice over the last 2 years and I loved my stay both times. One of the awesome amenities they offer is a premium area called the Transfer Lounge. This is not a typical hotel lounge, but more of a 24-hour relaxation area with locked luggage storage, comfortable seating, TVs, and a shower room. You can bring food and drinks up from the bar but the lounge itself does not offer any food or beverage options.

Back in September 2022, I noticed this lounge on my way out of the hotel and asked the front desk for information. I was able to get a tour from a friendly employee named Engelito who showed me around. During my visit the lounge was empty and I think that could be because people are not aware of its existence. The shower and restroom were very nice and located across the hall from the lounge.

As far as accessing the Transfer Lounge, I was told if you had Hilton Gold status or above you could use the lounge free of charge. There is also an option to pay but they were unsure of the pricing and terms.

Rooftop Patio

I would be remiss if I did not take a moment and show some photos from the H Hotel rooftop patio. This hotel is located close to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX/KLAX) and has an amazing rooftop with views of the airport and the pacific ocean. This is one of the best places to stay if you are a plane spotter (#AVGeek) and want to watch planes. Rooftop access is available to anyone free of charge who is staying at the hotel.

Closing Thoughts

The lounge would be great for either an early arrival before your room is ready or if you have a late flight out of LAX and you want to go do something around town before heading to the airport.
