We stayed at this hotel for 6 days and five nights. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted in a very sincere manner by Miss Katarina. The housekeeping staff was beyond any reproach. Mr. Antonio and MIss Aracely were truly a pleasure to greet every morning. The parking attendants ( Mr. Juan and Mr. Rudy) were always attentive to...

I have never stayed at a hotel that has made me feel so "hip" (for lack of better words). The design and decor of this property are truly unlike anywhere else I've ever stayed at in the past. Color - color is everywhere! The curtains at valet area, the room key its key packet and the room's accent wall and...

We only stayed one night in Venice, but LOVED the Kinney! Free breakfast, free on-street parking? Are you kidding? In a beach town, both of these are wins! To top it all off, the room was super clean, super cute, and lots of creative details! It's not easy to find a hotel room that doesn't have an obnoxious air conditioner....

The Kinney is a solid hotel with cool rooms, a pool, hot tub and ping pong tables. It is very well located close to Venice Beach. Alex at the Valet was super friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

Great hotel - very clean, friendly staff, kind of eclectic appearance. The breakfast was very good - eggs, sausage, waffle maker - coffee pots were always full - juices. And super location to Abbott Kinney and Venice Beach. We planned on walking everywhere, but unfortunately we were there for a rainy weekend.

The Kinney was a very comfortable trendy hotel. ! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was a short visit so we did not use the pool or spa. Our room was facing the busy street so we did hear traffic.. but still able to sleep the beds and pillows were the highlight..so comfy. The beach, shops and many...

I expected a tired old motel with a "renovation" job but was pleasantly surprised to find a beautifully made over hotel. The bones of the old motel are there, but the spaces are completely renovated. I imagine that they completely gutted the property to the bare walls and then started from scratch. The bedroom had fun modern and quirky decor,...

We stayed at the Kinney for two nights in January and absolutely loved our stay. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating, including the housekeepers and grounds staff. We would definitely stay again!

I like this place, I stayed there last year and despite the place going through renovations it was great.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
