Why The Private Suite at LAX is the Ultimate Airport Experience

Modern luxury is privacy, convenience, and ease. All abound at The Private Suite at LAX.  Here’s why this suite is the ultimate airport experience:

Inbound

Imagine your plane landing and instead of dealing with security lines and airport hassle, you are whisked right off the tarmac by a private BMW 7 series sedan. The sunset glows as you watch other planes landing and angling towards the sky. In a matter of minutes, you enter a private room where only you and your guests are allowed. Your ID or passport is checked and stamped in minutes in a private TSA screening room and Customs counter located in The Private Suite facilities. Soon after, you are escorted to a private lounge stocked with every food and drink option you could desire. A mini bottle a Veuve. A bottle of Napa Valley Cab. Lobster salad ordered prior to your trip is waiting along with a masseuse, a service so needed after a long flight. In-N-Out Burger (or any other request) can be accommodated. You don’t even touch your luggage because it’s not a concern. It’s already loaded in your car. Transferring to another flight? They have you covered. Imagine the most seamless arrival experience. This is it.

Outbound

Now imagine the reverse. After being dropped off near LAX at a private terminal in a gated compound to board your plane, airport exhaustion is avoided by not having to deal with one of the most stressful and unpredictable airports, LAX. No crowded check-in lines, no need to dodge other travelers to get to the gate, and no need to deal with baggage. Upon arrival at this exclusive private suite, bags are whisked away and you are escorted to your own lounge room – one of 13 suites – where two can be turned into double suites. Even a shower is a nearby possibility.

Each suite features a lounge, bathroom, stocked mini pantry, and two-person daybed. After spending an hour (or more) relaxing, watching the news, and sipping specialty coffees brought to us, we watch the planes land and take-off out of our personal window. A large Visual Atlas is open to a map where we are traveling to, showing us our flight information, the weather, and estimated time we will leave the suite. As my husband enjoys his Irish coffee and steak salad pre-ordered from a nearby restaurant, I opt for a quick manicure before take-off where I learn the nail technician is off next to a beautify the hands of a famous actress.

We snag some healthy snacks stocked in the room to take with us on the plane and make candy bags from a variety of options donning the wall. The bathroom is fully stocked with every possible toiletry and medicine which is super helpful since we forgot many items like band-aids, anti-diarrhea medicine, Pepto Bismol, toothbrushes, Advil, deodorant and eye drops.

When it’s time to board, my husband and I are driven across the tarmac, Head-Of-State style, directly to the aircraft. It typically takes 2200 steps from the car to the plane seat, but for members of The Private Suite, convenience, luxury, and privacy are key. A mere 70 peaceful footsteps will have you boarding your plane. The whole experience feels like the ultimate travel game-changer – for those who can afford it!

If you have children or pets, there is a cute outdoor play and relaxation area with games and kid tents perfect for a layover or post-flight stretch. A menu of toys by age range is also a nice perk to keep the little ones occupied. You can bring several people with you so this is a nice amenity for young kids or the elderly, especially with a layover.

Admission

If it were easy, everyone would do it. Like many luxury experiences, The Private Suite offers the ultimate because it caters to those who have the ability and inclination to access the value it provides. The exclusivity is a feature that’s built into the price because the service can only exist as a high-value option.

Similar to flying and boarding a private jet, The Private Suite at LAX has been in operation for about 2 years with plans to come to New York’s JFK soon. Membership pricing is available for around $4,500 a year and you can pay as you go – $2,700 per domestic flight and $3,000 per international flight for up to four passengers. Members can park on-site for $40 a day and your car can be detailed and washed on site too.

You may ask yourself who is using this costly service. We learned about 30-40 people move through The Private Suite daily. The majority are business travelers and of course those who demand privacy. The video conference room available is also attractive to business travelers who might need to conduct a meeting between flights.

The cost alone may be a deterrent for most, but the experience is priceless!
