The Bob Hope Hollywood USO at LAX is our flagship center and representative of the services provided at all our of centers. It is named in honor of legendary entertainer and USO Ambassador of Goodwill, Bob Hope. For six decades, he brought the USO's famous "touch of home" and a string of smiles to millions of GI's often during their most difficult hours. Bob Hope will be remembered from generation to generation for the wonderful memories he and his Hollywood "band of gypsies" gave to U.S. troops through the years.
Our complimentary sandwiches, snacks and beverages may seem like small comforts, but to our grateful military personnel and their families, visiting the USO means they need not wait in the often impersonal airport terminals frequently for many hours. It also means they have available for their exclusive use an array of facilities and services that include recreation areas, secure luggage storage, a theater with big screen TV and a library of literally hundreds of current and classic films on DVD and video, a state-of-the-art Internet computer center, a fully-stocked free lending library, a well-equipped "Family Room" where children can relax and play games, or simply a place to take a nap.
There are separate shower facilities for men and women, and a "quiet room" where the exhausted troops are able to rest undisturbed for a few hours. Complimentary phone calls throughout the country on our "I-Freedom" telephone system allow our troops an opportunity to phone home during their visit. Tables and shade umbrellas are situated on the adjacent outside patio for troops to enjoy the Southern California weather. All services at the Bob Hope Hollywood USO at LAX are provided to our valiant American warriors and their families without charge.
The Bob Hope Hollywood USO at LAX is located across from Terminal 2 adjacent to the iconic Theme Building. The USO is open 24 hours, seven days a week.
