“Great hotel for Business”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

I was here for a couple of nights for a business event at the hotel. The hotel staff is very nice to meeting staff. We were given a complimentary plate of fruit, crackers, and cheeses. Evening turn down service has chocolates for the pillows. The robes are fluffy; the beds are like sleeping on a cloud. Food in the club lounge is plentiful and decent. The location is close to good restaurants.

I have to say that Marriott is not as pet friendly as other brands. I know that Residence Inns (RI) are pet friendly but nothing compares to the comfort a full service Marriott provides compared to a RI. This Marriott charges a $200 pet sanitation fee. Its pretty steep but I understand why they do it. I just wish more Marriott's did allow pets. We travel with a small 5 lb Yorkshire Terrier who is well behaved and groomed on a weekly basis. I know children who make more of a mess than our Yorkie.

Valet parking is $26 and self parking is $21. We used the valet service and found the valet staff to be extremely helpful and efficient. Well worth the extra $5 per night. They have a bell cap if you need it. Since we were traveling with a small dog and a had a lot of stuff, we took advantage of this service.

The room was extremely clean and comfortable. Bathroom was a little small but updated. Nice shower. No tub. We prefer showers anyways. Bath & Body Works products.

Furniture looked like it was recently updated. Staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the spirited service at the restaurant at breakfast on Sunday morning.

Room was a comfortable size. Air conditioning worked well. Bed was comfortable.

Yes, this hotel is not "ON" the beach but it is in Manhattan Beach. People should use a map website on the internet to determine if the location of the hotel is close enough for your taste. Yes, it is in a business park area not near the beaches of Manhattan Beach. The hotel has easy access to the freeway.

We would come here again when visiting the Los Angeles area. Please keep the pet friendly option for this Marriott Platinum Member.

Room Tip: Book a room with a golf course view. You get a nice patio. If you really want to splurge, book a c...

We recently stayed at this hotel so that we woluld be close to LAX, and this hotel was only a short ride away. I read allthe reviews and found this to be perfect for us for the very early flight we had.
This hotel has a beautiful lobby, and nothing else, the rooms are outdated, except for the bathroom which had been recently updated and that was the best thing, they did say that the rooms would be updated in the future. The carpet was worn, furniture old, and they have a nice flat screen tv but it is Analog only which was dissappointing, one major issue I did notice that the door had a 1" gap on the side that you could look through and see the rooms across the hall and you could hear others as if the door was open. The valet parking is $26 and self park $21 which is under the building, to me that is outrageous especially if you are a silver, gold or platinum marriott rewards member. You should get a break if you are a member. The staff was great, the location perfect, it was close to several stores and restaurants. I can tell you I checked so many hotels by Marriott and this was the only one near the airport that did not have a bed bug report and I was sold. If they renovate all the rooms and I am ever out that was again I would return.

The Marriott is nothing fancy, but it is a very good choice for travelers with business in the area, or those seeking a nice hotel close to the airport. The hotel has been renovated and looks much better than it did when I was last there. The restaurant and health club are both good, and the location is too: There are a number of restaurants, a movie theater and shopping all within an easy walk from the hotel.

Stayed at the Marriott for a company event. Very nice room and great rate. The welcome reception and the dinner were excellent. A little disappointed that the Marriott does not have an actual restaurant that stays open for dinner. Staff were very friendly and eager to please.

Room Tip: Rooms above the second floor are quieter. Too many meeting rooms on the second floor and it is more...

We stayed at the Marriott 10/6 for a class reunion. Very nice room, great rate and excellent location. The banquet meal was excellent as well. Wine by the glass was too expensive in the bar. Beautiful setting in the middle of a very busy area. Many great restaurants are within a block's walk. Every staff person we encou tered was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Away from the elevator.

When flying out of LAX on a morning flight, I often attempt to try to fins a hotel reasonably close to the airport. I didn't know about "Carmaggedon", the planned closure of the 405 during this time, but when I found out I was happy I had made the decision to stay close. The location of the hotel is good because it is close to the airport. However, the hotel is on a main street that makes it feel somewhat commercial and puts it out of reach of an easy stroll to the beach. Marriott is in the process of a major renovation; the rooms are completed but the front lobby and breakfast areas have't been finished. God news are the rooms are clean and comfortable if somewhat basic. I did't experience the poise issue some reviewers have had. Breakfast is included and there was a good selection of breakfast foods. Given that you are in L.A., I was happy with the decision to stay here and the price/value equation made sense.
