“Very average, watch the add-on charges”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is located near popular Manhattan Beach in a office towere area so expect some driving time to the beach. The rooms are below standard for a Mariott: no paper and pencil, beds are saggy...Breakfast is a "bargain" at 24$ per Person and self parking cost the same per car and day. Although the hotel is nice and quiet and a good place to stay you can do better in LA for this price

I was there for the recent LA Pen show. My room over looked the golf course which was very nice to see each day. The hotel staff couldn't have been nicer giving recommedations for local restaurants and attractions such as how to get the the nearest beach. I was there for 3 day and would go back in a minute. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The inhouse restaurant was good. Local dinning was in walking distance and all were great. I look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the golf course.

My family and I wanted to visit LA to do the "tourist things". The past few times here on buinsess I stayed downtown but we wanted someting calmer for a vacation. Also we were expecting to spend very little time at the hotel except maybe for breakfast and of course to sleep. We were a bit hesitant but as soon as we pulled up we made the right choice. The arrival was very nice the property is up-to-date clean and modern. I only stay at Marriotts throughout the country and have to stay by far this was the best staff I ever dealt with. From valet, to the front desk to the restaurant. Also, the neignborhho nearby is safe and nice and if you feel like grabbing something quick from coffee to dinner you can walk. We had breakfast in the hotel whihc was very nice and included a nice slection. The restaurant faces the pool and gold course. We only had one issue one of our neds was comfortable but the other was like sleeping on a hill. When we aksed they did change it out but the second was not much better. Regardless, I 100% recommend this hotel.

Since my last bad review on the Manhattan Beach Hotel, I've stayed there 4 more times, and happy to say it has been perfect each time. Spotless rooms and speedy service. In addition, the neighborhood nearby is very safe, so walking to a restaurants it great, and there are tons of choices ... from 5 star to a Subway Sammy take out. There is also a Whole Foods nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the golf course. (all others will view the parking lot.)

I was in town on business and chose this hotel due its location. The arrival experience was excellent, friendly bellman, beautiful lobby and helpful smiling front desk agents. My room was clean and just what I would expect from a Marriott. I slept great and enjoyed the fitness center. I booked the concierge level and the breakfast was hot, and served with a smile! I’ll be back.

We stayed here to attend a nearby wedding. Our experience was extremely average. The room was clean but nothing special. The bed was too soft and lumpy; the mattress needed to be replaced. The sheets -- seemed old and not very soft.

But the worst part of our experience was the customer service. As we were driving into California from Las Vegas, we called the Manhattan Beach Marriott to see if they could make me reservations at a nearby spa/salon. The person who answered the phone spoke very poor English, and then transferred us to the Concierge, whose English was just as bad. He couldn't recommend any nearby spas with the exception of a Strip Mall salon nearby.

After a couple minutes of searching online on my own, I found that Murad's global headquarters are right across the street from the hotel and they also have a lavish spa and salon for skin, hair, and nails. I can't believe that I found that on my own and the hotel Concierge didn't direct me there -- it is literally a walk across the street!

All in all, our experience here was completely average; luckily most of our time was spent away from the hotel.

P.S. I HIGHLY recommend the Murad Spa across the street. It's an easy walk away and a great place to relax and recharge during your travels!

Room Tip: A good room? Book Concierge level if you can. If you like the Marriott brand, try a nearby Ritz-Carl...

This is an excellent hotel with large, comfortable rooms and fine service. I go there every year in February to attend the Los Angeles Pen Show. The rooms with balconies looking out on the golf course and ponds are superb. It is close to Los Angeles Interntl Airport, and there are fine restaurants nearby -- within walking distance. It is always a pleasure to stay there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking out on the golf course.
