This place feels like a good friend's beach house. The rooms are simple with a clean and breezy aesthetic. The staff is chill and friendly, yet attentive and able to pull off concierge duties. I stayed on two non-consecutive nights during a week-long business trip in SoCal, opting for the shared bath the second night, after having my own bath... More

The best hotel by far that I've stayed at on the West Coast. Relaxed, happy vibe and impeccable style. I loved it! Only a minute from the beach and all the restaurants along the front. Surf lessons were on offer for anyone who wanted as well as bicycles for those aiming to head further afield. Coffee and croissants were set... More

My husband and I recently stayed at The Rose Hotel for a quick two-day getaway. This lovely hotel is everything you would expect from a European-style boutique hotel — style, personal service, and small touches that make guests feel welcome and at home. But it also has a good dose of California culture — free surf lessons were offered to... More

I found it difficult to find a small scale, cosy and authentic hotel in LA. Luckily we found The Rose. Good atmosphere, beach style, nicely and lightly decorated. Plus: very friendly personnel, free bikes, breakfast included (we are used to this in Europe but found it almost nowhere in the US, strange!). Minus: little parking spaces in the street, light...

I instantly felt at home when I arrived at The Rose Hotel. The staff did everything they could to help, and they even organised an early check-in for me. The vibe of the hotel is unique, charming and it oozes character from the moment you walk in. Think gorgeous country cottage meets beachside bungalow. The room was sweet, homely, fresh... More

We attended a wedding in L.A. and stayed at the Rose. We loved the place, very clean and staff was fantastic. The hotel is very simple, shared bathrooms and showers (with locks). The staff warned of thin walls and had ear plugs by the bed however we had no trouble with noise. Hotel is steps away from Venice Beach and... More

We were recommended The Rose by a hipster-creative-advertising friend. Although we loved the experience and found the location fantastic, we did miss a few luxuries like a television in our room and a comfy bed - subjective, but just our personal preference, I guess. They offer complimentary coffee and danishes for breakfast, a nice touch. We also enjoyed the complimentary... More

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

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.
