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...

My wife and I had the pleasure to stay at the Rose Hotel last month. It still remains one of the highlights of our trip. We had such an enjoyable time in this area of Cali. The place is in a perfect location close to the boardwalk and the beach. A number of great restaurants and bars are within walkin... More

The hotel has a perfect location at a reasonable price. But you will probably be sharing a shower, and toilet. And the walls are thin. Parking isn't good. You will probably have to pay during the daytime, and you may have trouble parking at night. We Waite outside for a spot, and stood in it while we got the car.... More

We unfortunately only had one night at The Rose following a long flight from London and a connecting flight the next morning to Maui. However, the co-owner Doug was quick to make us feel at home, after giving us the tour, he pointed us in the direction of a few good restaurants. The bed was so comfortable, the room cosy... More

I stayed at The Rose in December 14 and absolutely loved it. Its beautifully designed with a beach side feel, in pale blues and whites, stripes that fit with the sunlight that shines through the slated blinds, behind which you can see the ocean and the Venice life. We were staying in the family room which was huge and the... More

Gave a very relaxed and clean feel to the whole place. Tea and coffee always available plus a delicious complimentary croissant for breakfast.

My daughter and I stayed here for one night in December. Absolutely loved it. It is a great location,rooms are great and very clean. But it are the people who made our stay so special. When we arrived Amber went out of her way to help us find a parking space. Eric was great as well. Everybody was so helpful.... More

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.
