When we arrived Jason checked us in. He is very nice. I went to our room and was not so sure when I saw that outside our window people sat around the courtyard on lounge chairs right in front of the window. I went back to get another room but the other room seemed to far away from the pool...

Don't spend the additional money on a "better named hotel" in the Venice Beach area. This hotel has it all. Rooms are great (we had the one bedroom)and it had plenty ofroom for a family of four. The staff were exceptional from the reception to the cleaners, they were the friendliest hotel staffI have ever encounted. Free parking, an easy...

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel through Hotwire, which meant we only paid about £50-£60 per night for the room. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and the lobby had a computer with the internet, tea & coffee and apples! The room was really big, with a living area separate to the bedroom. The room had two really...

I was pleased with the customer service at the front desk. Hotel was clean, walking distance to great places to eat and beach wasn't too far. Patio was great to sit at and have a cocktail. Free breakfast was nice!

I thought this hotel was the cutest thing ever, loved the indoor/outdoor floor plan. Rooms were very spacious; we had the suite with the French doors. If I went back to CA I would stay here as long I could. Great location for all the LA/Hollywood attractions, even the Warner Brothers Studios was under 30 minutes away.

Free Wireless was fast, plenty of free parking in the garage, computers & printers for guest use in the lobby and a great breakfast with eggs, cereal, oatmeal,...

This is a great location, walking distance to the Venice pier and boardwalk without the insane crowds and parking to deal with. Also adjacent to great dining on Abbott Kinney and Lincoln Blvd. Rooms were updated and very clean. Loved how friendly the staff was from check-in to cleaning staff. Breakfast was always well-stocked. A lot of choices at the...

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.
