Marina del Rey is like a cross-section of all the amazing things the Los Angeles area has to offer. It’s got amazing beaches, plenty of great dining options, bountiful culture, and provides easy access to attractions, from Hollywood, to Venice Beach, to downtown Los Angeles. When you base yourself in Marina del Rey during your trip, you put the very best of L.A. right at your fingertips.
Staying in Marina del Rey makes it easy to enjoy California’s “City of Angels,” no matter which hotel you choose. The more selective you are about your Marina del Rey hotel, however, the more perfect your trip to Los Angeles is sure to be.
The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey
The Ritz-Carlton brand is synonymous with luxury and with the The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey property, the hotelier has overlooked no detail. Gaze at a priceless Marina del Rey sunset from your private balcony, or get a massage at the hotel’s full-service spa, followed by a seaside stroll up to Venice Beach, home to some of the most eclectic culture in Los Angeles.
Inn at Playa del Rey
The Inn at Playa del Rey overlooks Marina del Rey’s namesake shipyard, but thanks to the Cape Cod-style interior design and architecture on offer here, you might feel like you’re in Martha’s Vineyard instead. Romance is the main mood here, with rooms that feature whirlpool tubs and real fireplaces. Best of all, you’re just three blocks from the Pacific Ocean, which means a fresh sea breeze is never more than a minute away.
It might seem counterintuitive to travel to a gorgeously distracting place like Marina del Rey for business, but if you do, the 24-hour business center at Hotel MdR, a DoubleTree property, makes it easy to get work done. That is, if you can take your eyes off the sunset! You’ll also enjoy free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, including the full-service restaurant, which is the perfect place to wine and dine clients.
Foghorn Harbor Inn
As its name suggests, Foghorn Harbor Inn is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the mighty Pacific. The convenience of this 23-room boutique hotel, however, doesn’t just apply to leisure – all guests at Forhorn Harbor Inn enjoy a free round-trip transfer to Los Angeles International Airport, which ensures you can begin relaxing from the moment you arrive in town. If you’re visiting during the winter months, warm up from the chilly sea breeze around the large fireplace located in the hotel lobby.
Hilton Garden Inn Marina del Rey
Like the nearby Ritz-Carlton, the Hilton Garden Inn branding of this Marina del Rey hotel tells you you’re in for a memorable stay. Several key features help this 134-room hotel rise above and beyond your expectations, from a 24-hour fitness center, to private balconies or patios in every room, to an expert concierge who can curate the perfect experience for you outside your hotel, whether you’ve got business to do, or are simply in the business of enjoying your trip.
Your Own Private Piece of L.A.
Stay in any of the fabulous Marina del Rey hotels listed above and to learn first-hand why Los Angeles is one of the world’s best beach cities. Marina del Rey is only a stone’s throw from Hollywood and downtown L.A., but the sound of the Pacific lapping as you sleep make Marina del Rey a paradise all its own.
