This is an older hotel so if you want modern and sleek then it's not for you. This historic hotel has a real charm and is in an excellent location. A short walk to Venice Beach, minutes to the pier, third street promenade, great shopping and a variety of places to eat. Staff are friendly and helpful, and an evening drink on the verandah overlooking the beach is a must. Not the cheapest hotel I have stayed at so keep an eye out for good deals but a very enjoyable 4 night stay.
