You can take the Metro from LAX for $3.00 but it will involve several transfers. Go to the LAX Shuttle and Airline Connections sign on the Lower/Arrival Level islands in front of each terminal and board the free "G" Shuttle to the Metro Green Line Aviation Station. Buy $3.00 all-day pass. Take the Green line East to the Imperial/Wilmington Station. Transfer there from the Green Line to the Blue Line. Take it north to its terminus at 7th/Metro. Transfer to the Red Line and travel one stop in the Union Station direction to the Pershing Square Stop. Upon exiting station at the "Pershing Square" side (Do not use the 4th St. exit), you will immediately see the Hotel across Pershing Square. This route is feasible with wheeled luggage because all stations are built to current handicapped access standards with large glassed elevators, and trains are built with their doors at ground level.
The Long Beach Airport does not have any direct connections, apart from taxis and shuttles. However, one can take a short cab ride to the Wardlow Blue Line Station, then take it north to its terminus at 7th/Metro. Transfer to the Red Line and travel one stop in the Union Station direction to the Pershing Square Stop. Upon exiting station at the "Pershing Square" side (Do not use the 4th St. exit), you will immediately see the Hotel across Pershing Square. Technically one can take the bus by getting on the Long Beach Transit Bus 111 South at the Airport Terminal building, transferring at Redondo/Kilroy Airport Way to the LBT 131, heading North to the Wardlow Blue Line Station. (cost $.90 + $.10 Transfer). However this will involve much luggage hoisting and hefting for a fairly short distance.
