The Marriott Marina del Rey is one of those upscale executive hotels where airline crews like to stay. I was there at a conference which made it more or less affordable, but you'll get dinged hard (around $300 a night) if you just walk in off the street. The hotel is kind of Jekyl and Hyde: the first room I was given was awful: dowdy, uncomfortable furniture, view away from the water and right over the bar. This turned out to be catastrophic: on Friday night the ear-splitting house music and screaming drunken yahoos right beneath my window did not quiet down until 3 AM. After I complained I was given a room on the other side of the hall, facing the Marina: lovely view, complete tranquillity, even the furnishings were more comfy. Staff is great, food OK (watch for the hard sell on the 20$ breakfast buffet). I'd come back if I got another conference rate, but I sure wouldn't stay on the side of the hotel facing away from the sea...(why would management render almost half their hotel uninhabitable just so a few yahoos can whoop it up? Beyond me....)
