Timeout’s 12 Best Hotels on the beach in L.A. 

“Yearning for an escape to L.A.’s sandy shores? One of the best things about the county is its miles of sunny coastline, stretching from Malibu all the way down past Manhattan Beach and Palos Verdes toward Long Beach. Each beach town boasts a different vibe to suit your fancy: the ’Bu for an A-list-style retreat; Venice for an eclectic, no-frills getaway; a trendy, commercial setting in Santa Monica; Rancho Palos Verdes for a luxury resort feel with a golf course to boot; and a laid-back, surf and beach-volleyball vibe in Manhattan Beach. 

These little spots of paradise all sprout from the waterfront, where you can enjoy ocean breezes, crashing waves, amazing restaurants and bars, luxurious rooms and suites, and breathtaking views. Be sure to check out the array of hotel features before booking your stay, including swanky rooftop bars, spas, private balconies, fitness centers, in-room fireplaces, kitchenettes and bicycles on loan for hotel guests. Not to mention, nearby attractions like picturesque piers, famous boardwalks, popular dining spots and walking trails (the beach walk from Venice to Santa Monica is a must). From secluded spots along L.A.’s best beaches to swanky suites in Santa Monica, these are the best hotels on the beach in the City of Angels.”

Venice V Hotel, Venice Beach

Formally the destination of choice for Hollywood’s upper echelons, this 1915 landmark has swapped the tuxedos for a more hip, low-brow hangout for the creative nomads. The hotel features a boho-industrial vibe which is every bit as stylish as it sounds: skin rugs, exposed brick walls, wicker chairs, tapestries and cool wall art are just some of the things you’ll find here. All this blends with modern amenities and stunning views of the Pacific to have you in full vacation mode. And if you like mingling with the local crowd, you’re in the perfect sport for it. Nearby, you’ll find the iconic Venice Skate Park, the boardwalk and, of course, the beach. 

Mood? Boho loft.
Location perks? So enviably close to the beach and a ton of delicious restaurant options like the Waterfront Venice.
Budget range? A moderately-priced weekend getaway.
