This hotel is excellent. The staff were very helpful, the room comfortable, beautifully decorated, clean and modern. Really couldn't fault it. The pool is small, but clean, and the jacuzzi is like a very hot tub. The outdoor lounging area is fun, do play table tennis. There are some local shops nearby and the beach is about a 15 minute...

We stayed here for 3 nights. It is about a 20 min walk down to Venice Beach or the public bus pulls up out front for $1. There is a bottle shop right next door and lots of restaurants in close proximity. The hotel itself is modern retro, very clean, our room (suite) had 2 flat screen TV's, fridge, coffee...

I love this hotel! What a sleeping gem in LA -- the staff is amazing and the layout is so unique and vibrant yet comforting at the same time. I travel to LA often for work and when looking for a westside location I stumbled upon this. I've been back again since and it's my new go-to. Definitely book this...

My husband and I stayed here with our 3 year old son for 2 days. We usually stay at the Farmer's Daughter opposite the Grove as it is convenient to just stroll over there but we wanted a change of scenery. The Kinney is such a wonderful option for families. The suites are roomy, newly furbished with very well made...

My family stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. We had a suite with a pull-out couch. Although the room was small, it was very well-appointed and the decor was so fun, that we didn't really notice how small it was. The bed was really comfortable and my 2 children said the pull-out was comfortable too. There was a...

What has been an updated funky style decor is a delight but the best part of this place is people who host you, they are fantastic enthusiastic young hosts. They really make the greeting experience worthwhile coming through the doors the first and every time after. Always looking to help in any fashion. The location is ideal close enough to...

Went to Venice beach for a long weekend. Had a great time eating, drinking and enjoying everything that the area had to offer. The Restaurants on ABBOTT Kinney were fantastic and golds gym was everything we expected. The hotel was clean and very convenient to all the hot spots in the area. Not fancy, but the bed was very comfy.

Perfect location to explore Venice, Santa Monica, or Culver City. You're no more than. 5 $ uber ride anywhere. Front desk was great, very nice people and extremely accommodating in every way. I would for sure stay again.

Definitely a good place to stay with bags more personality than the chains. The decor was great, really fun. We had a lovely, big room with comfortable beds and pillows, which was cleaned very well. The courtyard area was also a hit - small but perfectly formed with a small pool, jacuzzi (both heated), sunloungers, ping pong tables and a...

Perfect location, a stone's throw away from Venice Beach. Lovely rooms and decor. Beautiful and polite service all around. The only slight downside is the breakfast selection which is slightly limited but still perfectly good. All in all, a perfect boutique hotel for both business travellers and getaway seekers.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice
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 happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
