Let’s hope you don’t get stuck at an airport over the holidays. But if you do, let’s hope you are at Los Angeles International Airport. The Four Points by Sheraton at LAX just launched new day rooms for delayed or stranded travelers. The rooms offer free Wi-Fi, room service, and access to a fitness center and a restaurant that features California coastal cuisine. Between May and October, you can also use the outdoor pool, which has a bar serving local brews. The rooms are available Monday through Friday for check-in after 8 a.m. and checkout before 5 p.m. Rate: $89 per day; ask for rate plan DY when booking by phone. 866-716-8133, www.fourpointslax.com/day-room-rental
