Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.

Do they have safety deposit boxes in their rooms?
Yes, and if I remember correctly they are the type where you set your own PIN. We managed to fit a MacBook, iPad and a netbook in it.

"We booked a Boardwalk Suite, which was very quiet. I think the suites facing the Quad would also be quiet most hours."
"Ask for a room away from the highway - it is loud!"
"Rooms adjacent to the pool and patio area are likely to be more noisy."
"King suites are fantastic, totally worth the extra."
"I like the TOP Floor you see all the center ambiance and decor walking through the hallways from above :)"
