The Manhattan Beach Marriott was chosen by my US colleague hosting our conference and I tend to believe that one cannot do too much wrong by choosing one of the leading hotel brands.
One reason for choosing this hotel was the relative proximity to the Los Angeles airport and it is indeed close by, the taxi ride only took about 15 minutes. The hotel itself is functional, nothing too fancy if you ask me. The check in process was done professionally and quick, the room I got was spacious and roomy. The thing I had to struggle with was that the air-condition had been set so low that it felt like a blizzard. It was completely impossible to sleep, however, despite of my best efforts I couldn't find the control panel to up the temperature and off the fan so I had to call for help. The house technician showed up shortly after my call but initially had the same issue I had - he couldn't find the control panel. Luckily this was only initially so he finally succeeded in the end and ended my ordeal.
The neighborhood of the hotel is sort of boring, lots of office buildings which are deserted after office hours. Nevertheless there are some good restaurants within walking distance. I also wonder how one could get away from the hotel without a car, public transport seems not to be available somewhere close.
The hotel is great for golfers (course is right next to the hotel), good for buiness travelers but not so advisable for tourists wanting to explore Los Angeles.
