I love an old building with some history and this hotel has got it. Used to be frequented by all the old hollywood stars. Its located right by culver city studios formally desilu productions if that name sounds family that is because it is. Lucille Ball and Desi Lu had all their old shows taped walking distance from this historical... More

Lovely stay in Culver City. Our room was well appointed and the beds were extremely comfortable. The complimentary continental breakfast was excellent. The bar was hopping every evening of our stay. A short walk to the Metro and 5 minutes by cab to Venice Beach.

Love the location, attentiveness of the staff and the uniquely styled rooms. I've stayed here on many occasions for work and can't say enough great things about this place. Easy access to the airport and close to Venice Beach. Totally safe neighborhood and I love the history of the hotel as well.

Your regular patronage of our establishment gives you a great perspective. With only 46 rooms in the heart of Downtown Culver City we love the fact that so many of our guests are regulars. Seth Horowitz General Manager The Culver Hotel More

I stayed two nights at the Culver Hotel, and I can't recommend a better place for anyone looking for a taste of Classic Hollywood. The hotel was built in 1924 and has been gently, lovingly restored, leaving plenty of authentic detail, but providing modern finishes where you want them. The rooms are not huge, but they are beautiful and well-appointed.... More

The minute you walk in the door, you feel the vibrancy of the hotel. From the decor, to the service, to the location, you could not ask for a finer hotel in all of LA. Its great for business as well as for families. The nightly jazz can't be beat. We loved the location, the neighborhood restaurants, the movie theater... More

This hotel is magical, especially at Christmas, and the staff is attentive and caring. It is close to fine restaurants, convenient markets and a movie theatre and playhouse. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Whenever I'm in the L.A. area, I get my hair cut at the Devachan salon and eat at Native Foods vegan restaurant next door, so the Culver Hotel's location was perfect for me, as it's right across Culver Boulevard, which has a crosswalk. The Culver Hotel is also across the street from Trader Joe's, and next to the Arclight cinema,... More

The Hotel is in the shape of a "Flatiron", same as that famous Flatiron Building in New York. Thanks for the in-depth review, really appreciate the feedback. The 7 series you stayed in is the most popular room with our regulars, not big in size, but big in character. We look forward to your return trip. Seth Horowitz GM More

My husband and I travelled from Mackay Australia to LA for a fleeting visit before embarking on a cruise. I had checked various hotels but decided on the Culver Hotel because it sounded unique and definetly not the usual busy hotel. What a fantastic choice it has turned out to be. It is a grand hotel with an historic past... More

Went to the Culver hotel bar and had an amazing experience. Sat at the bar and had amazing conversation with the bartender. Very friendly staff. Really amazing lobby. Property amazingly decorated with period decor and cinematic decor. old movies projected at one of the walls. Previous owners Charlie Chaplin, John Wayne. Amazing.

Love the fact you discovered us. When Harry Culver opened the hotel in 1924 he was determined to bring the fledgling movie industry to Culver City, and he did. All the great MGM movies of the 20's and 30's were made just down the road and the movie stars all stayed in The Culver Hotel. Looking forward to seeing you... More

Came to see the property and was welcomed by the staff to visit the public spaces. Rich cinematic history: owned by John Wayne, Clark Gable stayed there (my Dad's favorite movie stars) and all the 124 "little people" of The Wizard of Oz resided there during filming.
