I booked a stay here last minute and was hesitant as to the location but what an absolute treasure!I wanted to stay somewhere "cool" since I was bringing my 15 yr old son and 16 yr old godson. They are not easily impressed and they had a wonderful time since we were a stones throw from the beach. The staff...

The room was good, bigger than we had expected. Clean and bed was very comfortable. Rooftop bar was great, with an amazing view/vibe. Location was fantastic, only steps away from Venice Beach and a short walk to great restaurants. Lobby restaurant was great and staff very pleasant and helpful. Not cheap, but nothing really is in anywhere near Santa Monica.

I've stayed here twice this year and I will only stay again if I'm really in a pinch (eg the other beach city hotels are charging extraordinarily high rates!) +1 star for the rooftop bar, the waitstaff and views are terrific -4 stars because of the room conditions and poor management. Room condition: the carpets are stained, the grout in...

Indepent hotel with a super nice rooftop patio. Great location on Pacific Avenue, 3 minute walk to the beach. Our room on the 5th floor was super quiet. Staff was laid back yet very helpful.

Well, this hotel has a perfect location on Venice Beach and has a beautiful rooftop. But nothing else. Rooms are well-designed but not incredible. It is really noisy and people at the desk are not nice. Only one guy was nice. The worst part is the park price! 20$ for a night!!!! There are thieves! You pay 300$ a room...

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.
