Great hotel - very clean, friendly staff, kind of eclectic appearance. The breakfast was very good - eggs, sausage, waffle maker - coffee pots were always full - juices. And super location to Abbott Kinney and Venice Beach. We planned on walking everywhere, but unfortunately we were there for a rainy weekend.

The Kinney was a very comfortable trendy hotel. ! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was a short visit so we did not use the pool or spa. Our room was facing the busy street so we did hear traffic.. but still able to sleep the beds and pillows were the highlight..so comfy. The beach, shops and many...

I expected a tired old motel with a "renovation" job but was pleasantly surprised to find a beautifully made over hotel. The bones of the old motel are there, but the spaces are completely renovated. I imagine that they completely gutted the property to the bare walls and then started from scratch. The bedroom had fun modern and quirky decor,...

We stayed at the Kinney for two nights in January and absolutely loved our stay. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating, including the housekeepers and grounds staff. We would definitely stay again!

I like this place, I stayed there last year and despite the place going through renovations it was great. So much so that I had planned to return this year and as they said when I checked out "call us direct and we will beat any online price and make up for the renovations you endured" I thought ok then...

This hotel should be perfect and indeed the rooms have been up upgraded and there is a lovely pool and jacuzzi but rather than funky and happening as in their advertising the place has a tired feel and the reception staff seem somewhat disengaged. We also asked for a quiet room but were placed in a room where there was...

I spent the weekend at The Kinney on a work stopover and was so pleased I picked it. The rooms were so comfortable and cosy, just like being at home. A super bed and I love the bathroom design with the basin outside of the bath/shower area. I also appreciated the outside area which is very relaxed easy to take...

I loved literally everything about this hotel! The decor was funky and fun, the bed was insanely comfortable, breakfast was great, and the staff couldn't have been more gracious, in particular Katrina. I am going to be looking for reasons to come back to Venice Beach!

Street side room,traffic noise woke me up the first morning,the second morning I didn't notice as much. The black out curtains work very well,good thing because there was a bright street light shining right through our window. Decor is amusing and happy.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
