“Beautifully renovated historical hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

What a lovely hotel. The lobby is very cozy, and they have live jazz on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There are also 2 restaurants in the hotel-one is in the lobby and the other has a separate entrance. The ambiance is romantic and cozy and the food is good. Staff is friendly and accomodating and the rooms are very nice. Hotel is located in the heart of Culver City, close to all of the restaurants and studios. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks, great comments. We actually have live music playing in our Grand Lobby every night of the week, from 7:30pm until after 10:30. The vibe is really great.

Stayed here with a small group where the youngest is 15. Right from the start, this hotel was top-notch. The atmosphere was elegant and comfortable, quite different from uppity, which was pleasant. The rooms were each unique and beds were cozy. Wi-fi was free and complimentary breakfast. A lovely place. I was mostly intrigued by the history behind the hotel and the location is as great a match. Definitely want to go back.

I stayed 5 nights in Culver City for business - a short walk to Sony. Most Sony visitors have opted not to stay here, but it looked & sounded good to me - didn't need a pool, gym room was sufficient.

Firstly, hats off to the staff - all wonderful, responsive & efficient. I loved the historic building updated for good comfort. Totally met all my needs. The main hall, serving as landing, hangout, work, breakfast & party-down space works well & felt comfortable. The continental breakfast was more than enough. The issue with noise noted by some reviewers is minor at best. On the 5th floor facing the cinema, I experienced minimal noise - being a city person, it didn't bother me at all!

If you need more, lunch & dinner - a superb array of food choices from breakfast to dinner & drinks within a short walk. Especially recommend East Borough (Vietnamese diner), Wildcraft Pizza, Cafe Vida (wholefood).

The new cool Culver City Arts area @ Helms Bakery also a short walk. As is Trader Joes, a well stocked supermarket with fresh food. Everywhere else a short cab ride.

The subway station also a short walk away, although I'm not sure how safe one might feel at night...

In summary, nothing else to ask for! Why not 5 stars? At great relative value, the old Dame is great, but not perfect if that's what you need in every corner of your hotel. But not me!

Thanks folks. Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Peace & quiet on 5th floor facing away from the boulevard

Thanks for staying with us. Sony, and businesses on the Sony Lot, do use us extensively. That 8 minute walk is a breeze. To the Expo Metro station to the East, it is also just an 8 minute walk. Nice to see you explored the culinary options Downtown Culver City provides, so much variety and of excellent quality.
See you soon.

While visiting family in Los Angeles for the Oscars last year, I booked a room at The Culver Hotel for a long weekend and was pleased as punch! It is easily accessible to most of the major studios, everything you need in Culver City itself, AND personally I could even walk to the home of the family I was visiting! Walk in LA you say??? INSANE! Hahahahahahaha... Twitter and Instagram: @kmptop10

Los Angeleno's need to be taught how to walk like New Yorkers, it is true!
The beauty of Downtown Culver City is that everything is within walking distance, even the Expo Line Metro Station, which goes to USC, Staples Center and Downtown Los Angeles. Within the next few months the train will be going down to the ocean at Santa Monica.
Come on back

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst in LA for a friends wedding and it is a charming place to stay. The staff are great and the character of the hotel never wears off. We would definitely recommend it, great food, atmosphere and friendly staff.

The staff was incredibly helpful at all times!
The breakfast buffet was filling!
Rooms were small but very tastefully decorated.
Incredibly convenient to restaurants and the airport.
I would definitely return!

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...
