First, the location is great. You are steps away from the action and entertainment of Venice Beach. But, you can quickly return to the calm of the hotel. Everything at The Rose is very basic, but very nice. From the linens and robes to the coffee served in the morning, it was all wonderful. Second, the staff is amazing. Everyone... More

I stayed here for a couple of days and really loved everything about the place, the staff were welcoming, the rooms were big and clean and there wasn't ever any issues in sharing the showers and toilets. The hotel does offer breakfast, however, it was very limited and I found myself going out and buying breakfast. Apart from that well... More

Fantastic location. Nice staff.On the first floor it seemed unsafe to keep the windows open...but on hot humid days it was unpleasant to return to a really warm room at midnight..No A/C, beach town, I get it..and I don't...The bed was absolutely horrible..springy old style...they need to put better mattresses in..they dabble in the chic accoutrements, but they need to...

The whole experience here was so great. We arrived late, after closing hours, and there were plenty of instructions as to how to make ourselves at home in the room. The room itself (#17) was recently redone – and so tastefully. Just the right amount of framed art and warm touches to make it comfy but still super clean and... More

Here for one night only (4th July) and loved it. The Rose Hotel has a very relaxed vibe, beach house type feel. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the free bike was fantastic and the room, etc all up to a very good standard. If you're looking at soaking up the Venice ambience you couldn't choose a better place... More

I would urge any large hotel chain to come and stay at the Rose so they could learn a thing or two about customer service and value for money. The staff here are excellent, full advice, help and the right level of charm, you don't feel like you are checking into a hotel rather you are coming home. The rooms... More

Firstly, great staff. They care and offer great local knowledge. I stayed for three nights. My room was tiny with a clawfoot tub shoe-horned into the bathroom. It was like staying at a relatives old guest house. The walls are thin but it's kind of charming. Truly , there is tranquil atmosphere once you step inside. Anyway you get earplugs... More

If you want a five star hotel don't stay here. This place is awesome. Understated. Perfect location for a Venice experience. Expect a bit of noise through the cardboard walls but rooms are clean, beach house style fit out. Casual but very friendly. In Vegas we stayed at Bellagio. I will recommend the Rose a long time before recommending the... More

We stayed at the Rose Hotel for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed everything especially the people that work there. All the recommendations we were given were terrific: walking on the beach, local restaurants, and driving in traffic in LA. Roomy hotel room with old fashioned pedestal bath and shower. Delicious croissants and coffee in the lobby gives you a chance... More

simple but adequate, recently renovated, rooms with a sink and a wardrobe. No TV for those that'd like to know. Shared bathroom and toilet for the basic rooms, somewhat dorm-like. Not much soundproofing and if you score a room facing the neighbours, you'll be listening to their conversations/their TV/ their ablutions. you get the picture. staff thoughtfully placed ear plugs...

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood 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.
