“Convenient and a wonderful place to stay”

Unique and wonderful small boutique hotel. Rooms are cozy and feel like home. Plenty of restaurants and things to do within walking distance. Very pleasant and friendly staff. I stay here frequently for business and it is a comfortable as home.

Room Tip: East side if you like the morning sun. West side faces the street with views of restaurants and sun...

We stayed here in June 2014. Great helpful staff, satisfying breakfast. Enjoyed High tea with the family. Fascinating bar upstairs set out in prohibition style. You never know who may be popping in as this is in the heart of the film studio area. Built in 1924. Used for filming Masters of Sex.
Comfortable room. A small boutique hotel that stands out as being different. Great restaurants and shops at hand. Trader Joes across the street for emergency supplies. Loved our eight nights there.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be different and set out in the decor of the era.

Loved having you stay with us for the week. Thank you for your imaginative title.
The Velvet Lounge has been voted the best bar in Culver City, open to the public on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and perfect for a Private Event for up to 70 people.
It is a long way from Warkworth New Zealand, come again.

On regular trips to visit family in Los Angeles, we usually stay in Santa Monica or Marina del Rey, but our favorites there were especially expensive this time, so we looked around. The Culver Hotel was a happy discovery for us. We enjoyed four nights there last week with our two sons, ages 9 and 5. The hotel is quite beautiful; it's old for LA (1924), nicely refurbished, stylish and interesting. I almost felt hip, though there's no pressure to be so. At every turn the staff were friendly and helpful. We had dinner at the hotel twice and breakfast every day. The food is very good, even excellent, and the outdoor seating was perfect for us and our children, who could wander around the small adjacent plaza and its spouting fountains while we finished our meals. The satisfying continental breakfast (included) was a daily treat for my wife and me; our boys enjoyed pancakes and waffles, and even scored some Lucky Charms from a gracious server. The continental breakfast is served on what the night before was the lobby bar. That felt just right. It's a fairly small hotel; they make good use of space. Night and day the lobby is inviting, comfortable, convivial. It's appealing in the evening, busy and buzzing, sometimes with live music, and also in the fresh light of morning, when we tended to linger. Culver City is burgeoning, it seems, and the hotel is in the center of things, and at certain hours there's some traffic, so we were glad to use the valet parking: just pull up and get out (more than once toting sleeping boys). The valet staff was friendly and efficient. From our room on the plaza side of the hotel (fourth floor of six) we heard only murmurs of the liveliness below. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Stylish, too, in an understated way. For us, the Culver was a total winner.

Great having you and the family join us from Colorado. The Lucky Charms are a key ingredient to a kids positive review :)
Looking forward to you next trip into Los Angeles.

Charming old hotel. An excellent blend of old and new.
Very convenient to restaurants and transportation. The staff is very helpful, eager to please.
Everything was just as desired. Not a noise problem even while being close to traffic.

Stayed here in June on a business trip. Found the location to be excellent. Short walk to the Metro for getting to my conference downtown yet able to spend the evening in a walkable, hip district with good food and entertainment very nearby.

Room was clean and comfortable. Staff super-friendly. The included breakfast was simple but tasty and enough to get me started.

The live music every night was excellent as well!

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in the Culver City area.

The Lobby Lounge at The Culver Hotel makes for an enjoyable way to spend time with friends and family. Surrounded by the hotel history, the furnishings, atmosphere and service, it is a unique experience. The hotel itself is in the middle of a vibrant area and it is a short walk to many fine restaurants. The entire package creates a fun and memorable evening. Take the trip back in entertainment history.

I go to LA on business regularly and stumbled upon this gem when another hotel was full. It is now my favorite little home away from home when I am there. The building is fun, classic and the refurbished rooms are a wonderful combination of old and modern. The rooms are stylish and the beds are made with fresh white sheets and down comforters. But it's the staff the makes it a great experience. David, the front desk manager, is a perfect host. Is always so gracious, classy and wanting to make your stay as good as can be. The rest of the crew is great, too. Drinks and food are also terrific. The location can be a bit noisy, but i like having windows that can open for some real fresh air.
