I travel weekly on business from Chicago and come to southern California 4 times a year approximately. I've tried many areas and have come to really like Manhattan Beach for it's great restaurants, nice ocean views and proximity to LAX. I have stayed in many hotels from LAX to Manhattan Beach and my number one choice is The Belamar Hotel. To me it has everything; great room and overall hotel atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff (all times of the day and night),a great restaurant called "The Second Floor" that for the first time made me want to eat in instead of going out, and a perfect location. I spent three nights there recently and it's a great place to come back after fighting LA traffic. One quick story; my traveling partner could not fly out until late from Chicago and he couldn't get to the hotel until 10 PM. It was a Sunday and the restaurant was closing at 9 PM. I arrived earlier and had finished dinner when I decided to ask them what he could do when he arrived, expecting for them to just tell me what might be open. Instead, they told me to order whatever I wanted and they would make it fresh for him to take to his room 15 minutes before his arrival. The next morning he went on and on about how great the food was he took to his room and how wonderful the kitchen and bartender were to wait for him, greeting him by his first name saying they're glad he made it in and were happy to see him. They went over and above for us and I'm sure that is just how they treat all guests.I can't wait to come back.
