The palm-lined Venice Beach boardwalk — with its sidewalk vendors, street musicians, roller skaters and Muscle Beach bodybuilders — has become synonymous with Los Angeles, appearing on film… almost as often as local luminary Dennis Hopper. The movie veteran's Frank Gehry-designed compound is one of many architectural standouts in Venice, a community that serves as a magnet for L.A.'s actors, musicians, designers and artists. Several piers and amusement parks have come and gone, battered by storms and fires. Now the performers congregate along the Venice boardwalk — skateboarders and stilt-walkers, musicians and magicians. Tattoo parlors, booths stuffed with sunglasses and beach clothes, and purveyors of street food line the scenic beachfront. Cyclists interweave between the pedestrians as the beat of conga drums fills the air. Basketball games on the beachside courts draw a crowd, especially on Saturday afternoons. Since its early days the city has attracted the odd and adventurous — artists and spiritual seekers, Beat poets and hippies. The best and bravest performers show their stuff on the beach's main stage; others vie with the vendors for sidewalk space to perform and hawk CDs and paintings. Local cultural highlights include the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC), the literary center Beyond Baroque, and performance spaces at the Electric Lodge and the Pacific Resident Theatre. Just off the main drags are the narrow residential streets of Venice, a mix of lovingly restored bungalows, modest apartments and modernist architectural statements. Grass-lined streets, dog parks, recreational areas and well-tended gardens turn this densely populated neighborhood into a pleasant retreat. Venice is the number one seaside destination on the West Coast so please come visit Venice and be a part of its colorful history! More

Our Low Price Hotel Guarantee
We are confident that our hotel prices are guaranteed to be the lowest rate you can find. If you find a lower rate for your hotel on another site, we’ll refund the difference to you. Book with us and enjoy total peace of mind!
If you find a lower rate at any time up until hotel's cancellation window, we'll match the price. The lower price you find needs to be for the same dates, length of stay and room type.
Found a better price?
- The lower price you found must be available on another website directed to consumers in the same locale, and must be for the same hotel, dates and room type.
- If you used a coupon/discount voucher when you made your original booking, you can still claim under the guarantee. We will use the total discounted price you paid and compare this to the lower price you found in order to calculate your refund.
- If you have made a booking which cannot be cancelled — whether it is non-refundable or if you are already within the cancellation window for the hotel — then you can't claim under the guarantee. Bookings that were part of a specific promotion (e.g. 3 nights for the price of 2) are also excluded from claiming under the guarantee.
- Once we have confirmed that you are due a refund under the guarantee we will issue the refund to the card you paid with at the time of booking. We will process your refund immediately but it may take your bank up to 30 days to process it and for it to show on your statement.
