Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

Great question! The rooms in our historic hotel are not air-conditioned and it's typically not needed in our mild beach climate. All of our room do have ceiling fans and screened windows so you can let the ocean breeze in!
