This is an old hotel, that's been updated and well maintained. And it was the home to the Munchkins! But the real find is the Quiet Speakeasy that is upstairs over the Main Bar, behind a black door. It's a wonderful place for a drink and an appetizer far from the madding crowd below. Charming and a nice surprise at... More

The Culver Hotel has a nice mix of local history and modern amenities. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and modern, with a nice showerhead and upscale products for shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, lotion and bar soap. There was a jazz band playing downstairs every night we were there and my... More

This is a historic hotel, as it hosted many extras during the filming of the Wizard of Oz. However, what they have done exceptionally well is maintain the history and charter while updating it for comfort. Great bed, and showers, clean and modern feeling. The extra touches of wooden furniture in the rooms made it less sterile than other "chain'"... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed there during her Spring Break and we loved the hotel. Everyone was great to us and David was super and helped us make this a stress free, safe and successful trip for us. He gave us useful information on the metro, how to use the tap machine, the bus, and arranged for taxis when... More

I had high hopes for this hotel, due to all the great reviews and the hotel's persuasive website and the high price of the room. But it more than failed to live up to my expectations. Check-in: My husband stayed with the car outside while I went inside to check in. The desk is located inside the lobby, which looks... More

I love staying in boutique hotels, and this did not disappoint! As you walk into the lobby you are literally taken back to the 1920's golden era - it is absolutely gorgeous! The rooms are decorated in a similar art deco, elegant manner and the hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. Each evening, the lobby comes alive with jazz... More

We just spent 2 nights here while visiting our daughter. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and had everything we needed, safe, iron, hair dryer, wifi, etc. Love the decor and feel of the Culver. We ate breakfast here both mornings which was great. Complimentary Continental breakfast is wonderful as are the menu dishes. Ate... More

I just spent three wonderful days at the Culver Hotel in Culver City, CA. I hadn't heard of it, but a friend suggested it to be one of those great small historic hotels with perfect service. And it lived up to it. The area around the hotel has great pedestrian friendly historic neighborhood with amazing restaurants and a theater in... More

We recently went to Culver City for our daughter's wedding. While the wedding was elsewhere, the rehearsal dinner and the post wedding brunch were both at the hotel. We also stayed there. From the moment we walked in until we left, the staff went out of the way to take care of every detail. Noe, in the dining area made... More

Let's get the poor first impression thing out of the way first. We booked the hotel because of its history and because of the reviews on this site. We were going to be on an extended nine hour flight coming in to LA so we took David up on his offer to send a car for us. To make a... More
