Street side room,traffic noise woke me up the first morning,the second morning I didn't notice as much. The black out curtains work very well,good thing because there was a bright street light shining right through our window. Decor is amusing and happy. The valets were all friendly,but I didn't see the necessity.Unless sometimes the garage gets full and they park...

What a lovely small hotel with such friendly, nice, helpful people. All the people I came in contact with greeted me with a smile and did all they could to make me feel at home. I spent four nights in a lovely king suite. The bed was fantastic. The only thing that would have made the room perfect would have...

The Kinney is a short walk or Uber ride away from everything in Venice. The beds are super comfortable, and the furnishing modern with a 70s feel. The front desk staff, Katrina & Rubi were extremely helpful and accomodating (room change, bath robes & late checkout) The manager was also very friendly and fulfilled our requests, which is always nice....

My husband and I travelled with my sister, her husband and two young children. The rooms are nicely renovated, as well as the courtyard. Cons: the pool and "gym" are tiny, and the evening front desk staff never seemed to be helpful. Pros: morning front desk staff were always friendly, the valet team (day/night) were amazing, super personable. Breakfast is...

I wrote a review some days after my visit but Tripadvisor wouldn't publish it. Something to do with some key words like "smell"? Don't get me wrong as my room was roomy, comfortable and trendy but ventilation was needed every morning and evening. Location is nice if you want to stay near the beach. They rent bicycles: go for it!

We stayed only one night on the way back from Mexico but wish it had been longer. We had a very spacious, trendy, well appointed room with really comfy bed (esp if you like soft), huge TVs (2) and good bath products. Accommodation in the area is not cheap and this is well priced for what it is. Better than...

We visited for 2 nights whilst we were on a holiday to Las Vegas and decided to pop over to LA.

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.
