We stayed at the The Kinney for three nights and had an overall great experience. The hotel has been recently renovated and it shows. The decor was really nice and modern. The rooms were spacious and clean. I would have liked more storage options (like a small dresser or something with drawers), but other than that I think the room... More

I stayed here for three nights with my family. The rooms were immaculate and tastefully decorated, the plunge pool is perfect after a long hot day walking up to Santa Monica. The breakfast was nice, lots of choice, though it got quite busy after 7am and has a relatively small dinning area. My boys loved the ping pong tables. The... More

We had booked two rooms with two queen beds in each and were disappointed after a long flight from the UK to find one room had only... More

We spent a few days in Venice and this hotel was a real find. They just remodeled and our room was great. The service was very friendly and accommodating. Rubi was extremely helpful and assisted us with everything we needed, from information about what to do in Venice to room requests. They also recommended us a good car service run... More

Great little hotel right in a great location. Walking distance to all the restaurants and shops on Abbot Kinney and very close to the beach. The rooms are recently renovated, spacious and well appointed. The pool area is small (pool itself is tiny), but there are ping pong tables near by and a nice gas fireplace to sit around in... More

Katrina on front desk saved our trip when Airbnb let us down. The hotel is newly refurbished and very comfortable. The service was first class with Katrina helping us with the booking, and the front desk always helpful with a smile. Rooms are comfortable and the pool/table tennis/lounger area was California cool. Plus, our kids loved breakfast and the waffle... More
