While visiting family, we spent an extended stay at the Marriott Marina Del Rey and had a wonderful vacation. We travel extensively and found the hotel staff to be as friendly and professional as any we have ever experienced, while not being overly intrusive.
The pool/hot tub area is small, but beautiful. The lobby is extensive (rare today) and lobby bar active and excellent. Even the restaurant was attentive, bright and reasonably priced with excellent food. Location is convenient to the Marina, restaurants and Venice Beach. Rooms clean and modern.
While there is a slight extra charge for a Marina view, we found the city view (from a mid to high floor) just as nice with better sight to the ocean and even the Santa Monic Pier.
If we had one issue, it was generally slow internet access in the rooms. If you needed to do major downloads, you needed to do so in the lobby area (where there was more than enough private seating to do so).More
