This place is on the Venice boardwalk, 2 blocks from the skate board park and 3 blocks from Muscle beach, outside the front door is the lively Venice beach, lined with tourist and vendors, artists, chronic weed smokers and pontificators, non of which is threatening in the least, but if you do not come from an urban environment you may find it intimidating. The action starts by 9:30 am and by sun down the board walk quiets down as the vendors pack up. Venice beach has been declared a public park and is officially closed at midnight; this means it gets real quiet at night. What is great about the beach is it is very wide and if you want to sit at the ocean, with your back facing the zaniness of the boardwalk and the beauty of the Pacific in front of you the sounds of the boardwalk fade away and you at a great beach. Thus this location gives you the best of everything, the hotel is situated 10 min from Abbott and Kinney, great shops and restaurants that are open late.

Venice Breeze is not a full service hotel, if you want that book Shutters just up the road, what Breezes is a cross between a hotel/hostel/short term rental. You have to make your own bed, and hang your shower towels to dry. For our stay of 2 nights it made no difference to us if there was maid service, and I am sure that if you wanted to pay to have the room cleaned you could probably arrange that. There are beach items to borrow in the lobby. The renovation that they did to this building is incredible it feels like a new old building. The micro suites are really well designed modern living spaces, complete with kitchens and amazing showers. You have probably read about the roof top, but it is an oasis, you can sit there and watch the show below on the board walk, or be there in the am or pm to hear the calm of the ocean. While we were there, people on roof top were nice and respectful, some people were drinking, or smoking or eating, but it was never a crazy party and if you want to join in on the party great and if you did not want to party that was cool too, really just a great chill So Cal vibe. We stayed on the top floor, in the back which was perfect for us, the windows give a partial view of the ocean and a partial view of the roof tops in Venice. I would absolutely stay here again, or even stay here with my family, this is not a Holiday Inn or a Marriott, it has character charm and is a real place with real people, were did not feel as just a number and that is why we would stay here again.
