We have stayed at the Belamar more than 25 times over more than a decade. We love Manhattan Beach in general and staying at this hotel is one aspect of the trip we always look forward to.

I booked this hotel for a weekend get-away. The highlight was breakfast in their restaurant, one of the best omelettes I've had in a long time. The low was the rooms had so many great things going for it - but the details were lost. The wrong room number was on our phone, there was no fitted sheet (they tried... More

We, unfortunately, weren't even there for 12 hours...and most of that was spent sleeping. Great decor, quality finishes (carrara marble baths) & bedding, whimsical art in the halls. A friend (local to the hotel) said that the restaurant is fabulous but we didn't get to check that out. The staff was great. Our reservation got "lost" but they had us... More

I have stayed at this hotel a few times and have not been disappointed. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. I love the fact that the coffee pot holds more then one cup of coffee. The food is very good but don't be in a hurry.

I reviewed this hotel last December as one of my favorites. My second stay was even better than my first. The staff is so helpful I wish I could thank them all.

I stayed here for a two and a half day work conference. There was some initial confusion about my reservation, but it was resolved much faster than I thought it might be thanks to some quick thinking from the manager. I checked in early enough to receive one of their junior suites, and the room was very spacious. Accommodations were... More
