What is a Hyatt Affiliated Hotel? Kind of like a Hyatt, but not quite Hyatt yet. You can earn points for a hotel stay, but reward stays with points are not yet available for booking.
The Concourse Hotel Los Angeles International Airport is a Hyatt Affiliated hotel.
This hotel was the Radisson LAX for years and last summer changed branding by signing to Hyatt Hotels. The remodeling of the property into the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles Airport is projected to still be another year in early 2016.
In the meantime, The Concourse at Los Angeles Airport is bookable on Hyatt websites. There is no points option yet for reward nights. The hotel is not categorized and trying a points award search returns this message:
The special offer/rate you have selected is unavailable during the dates you have selected, or it is not offered at this property. Below is a list of rates available during your requested dates.
The Concourse at Los Angeles Airport seems to have low rates next month relative to other major hotel chains for LAX on weeknights.

Garden Event Space Redesign
The Concourse Hotel LAX is in the news this week with a press release update on a redesigned lawn event space to be completed by May 15, 2015. The hotel is located closest to Los Angeles Airport terminals, one block from Terminal 1. Hotel shuttle is scheduled for every 10 minutes.
The announcement for an events lawn capable of handling 750 guests indicates this hotel will be an active conference and events hotel for LAX.
The PR piece highlights the hotel’s environmental design. “The hotel is a local leader in sustainable business practices, with a platinum-level Green Seal certification and four-key California Green Lodging certification.”
Recent reviews on TripAdvisor are highly mixed. My reading indicates the hotel needs a remodel.
Have you stayed at The Concourse Hotel recently? Please warn us if we should wait to stay at the hotel. Hopefully, let us know this is a place to try for the cheap rates.
Expect far higher prices when this hotel becomes Hyatt Regency Los Angeles Airport.
