My husband and I love small hotels where you can wake up to breakfast to start your day. This one is friendly, warm, comfortable with modern decor in a retro building just steps from the Venice Beach boardwalk and nice walk to the Santa Monica pier. When we arrived, the young lady at the desk offered to help us with... More

We stayed for 4 nights and had the best time there. We cannot wait to go back. The rooms are amazing, the location is great and the staff is charming, very attentive and always available to advise you on the best places to go and enjoy the same hidden gems as if you were local. I highly recommend the Rose... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over the Christmas holiday. I loved being a block from the beach at a reasonable price, the best croissants and jam I have ever had and getting bicycles right on site. The great path right on the beach was took only a few minutes to get to Santa Monica. We had the Breezeway Family... More

We loved the Rose so much we now look for reasons to go back to LA just to stay there. The people who run it are efficient and charming, the rooms are simple, squeaky clean but still stylishly designed. Great location in best part of Venice. The croissants in the morning are as good if not better than in Paris... More

Classic CA beach vibe, steps from the sand. Made me feel like I was back in the mid-century modern version of CA, but with good coffee and croissants. Great service, easy to Uber to other parts of town and the airport. I've stayed in a number of LA hotels, and this was one of my favorites for atmosphere. Cell reception... More

I read almost every poor and terrible review of every hotel in Santa Monica and Venice. I was staying for a week and willing to spend £400 a night, £500 if the hotel was amazing? I even looked at the Beverly Hills Hilton & Wiltshire, but they both had lots of really bad reviews for the money you are expected... More

hi mike, thanks for your lovely review. i understand your sentiments concerning the sounds of venice that occasionally permeate the building. we're about to start an extensive cosmetic renovation and intend to address that very issue. we're in touch with top notch acoustic engineers and soundproofing in the breezeway corridor will be one of our priorities. look forward to having...

The Rose is exactly as it is described, laid back beach style accommodation. The service is brilliant, down to earth and friendly. The rooms are also as described - like staying in a large 1900's villa or bungalow hotel. Very clean, relaxed atmosphere and great croissants in the morning.

My boyfriend and I stopped here for the last 3 days of our trek America tour. As soon as we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the staff who helped us take our luggage to our room.

This little hotel embodies everything you could want out of a stay by the beach. The location is right by the sea so you can spring out of bed and go for a surf lesson (after you've had a delicious croissant and blue bottle coffee served in reception). It has got style and charm in abundance, the rooms are simple... 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.
