4 stars for great location, views, and clean room. Now for why I took off one star, I stayed on the 6th floor with an epic view during the weekend and the club like music went from the afternoon past the midnight cut off on Saturday. Not worth paying extra for a view from your balcony if you can’t enjoy it. Overall if you are looking for a relaxing getaway this hotel is not for you. The rooftop is very popular and has a reverse happy hour, people are constantly coming in just for the rooftop bar. There’s only one elevator which causes a backup in the lobby, I ended up using the stairs.

Few minutes away from the beach and paradise for skaters. Rooms are clean with basic equipment. The roof top bar offers an outstanding view and is a must. Hotel staff is friendly and parking available (40 USD). We visited Great White cross the street for breakfast- very cool

I would probably score this place at a 4.5 as it has some great positives but a few minor area to improve. The location is amazing and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was actually described as having a city view but it did also have a view of the sea which was great. The room was spacious and clean and big enough for 3 people. The door for the bathroom could do with being fixed in properly and having only one lift and with the roof terrace being very popular does make it sometimes a wait! All being said this is a great base to explore LA from!

Staff was so friendly and helpful. You can borrow bikes to see the beautiful surroundings of Venice beach. We had a great room! The roof top bar and restaurant provides cool ambience and great view. Food staff but food not too good… try to be there before sunset to experience it with the best view.

Great hotel, right in the middle of all the action in Venice Beach. Huge suite, very comfortable beds, and friendly staff. Special shout out to the valet, we stayed on a very busy weekend and the valet went out of his way to make sure my EV vehicle was charged. We were on a bit of a tight deadline for the next day and there seems to be limited charging stations in Venice, so when we returned late on a Saturday night and he informed me that both chargers were already in use, I thought I was in trouble. But he said not to worry he would monitor the charging and swap my vehicle out when he could. When I woke up, sure enough at 3 am he got me on the charger. That's good service!

We had food on the rooftop bar with friends, the view is amazing and food is tasty. Only negative thing is we were rushed out when they were closing up, we had just ordered a drink. They shouldn’t serve if you can’t stay. The views are worth a visit alone
