Marina del Rey is not your average destination in the United States. Located just minutes away from LAX and the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, Venice Beach and Santa Monica, Marina del Rey is the largest artificial small yacht harbor in the world with room for over 5,000 boats.

Beautiful waterfront views and a carefree attitude of this small seaside community means that Marina del Rey offers a truly unique stay to travelers visiting the area. And luckily, a stay in the harbor is not limited to those with a yacht. Here are just a few of the hotels where you can base yourself during your stay in Marina del Rey.

Marriott Marina del Rey

The Inn at Marina Del Rey

The Inn at Marina del Rey is all about small luxuries. Great location, upscale amenities, personalized service, and an open-air courtyard with year-round heated pool/spa are just a few of the added niceties that you will find at The Inn. Prices are lower than at the above-mentioned hotels, but the downside is that The Inn at Marina del Rey does not sit right on the waterfront, but rather a short walking distance away from the marina itself.

The Inn at Venice Beach

The first things you’ll notice about The Inn at Venice Beach are the bohemian styled funky designed rooms and a lovely European-style courtyard. Immerse yourself in the hip and fun atmosphere at the hotel, enjoy free wi-fi in public areas, and a complimentary hot breakfast. Unlike the other hotels on this list, the Inn at Venice Beach is located a short drive away from Marina del Rey, but it’s prime beach location of Venice Beach more than makes up for this mild inconvenience.
