5 Culver City hotels for your next stay
This historic hotel was once the part-time residence to Old Hollywood, from Clark Gable and Joan Crawford to Greta Garbo and Buster Keaton. Charlie Chaplin supposedly sold the hotel to John Wayne for a buck, while tales of apparitions surround the Neo-Renaissance–designed hotel. Locals and tourists alike can drop in for a nightcap at the hotel's lobby bar, while overnight guests can lay their heads at one of the 46 newly renovated rooms. The location is simply unbeatable as far as Culver City hotels; it's the only lodging in the middle of the city's growing downtown. Wi-Fi is free, but self-parking is only available in a structure a block away.
This just-renovated DoubleTree comes with the familiar comfort you'd expect from a major hotel chain. On the other hand, Wi-Fi can be spotty, rooms facing the freeway can be noisy and parking is pricey at $20 a day. That said, the hotel is a short freeway trip from Marina del Rey, across the street from the Westfield Culver City shopping center and less than 10 minutes from LAX.
A splash of color here and there manages to elevate this Marriott from the mundane. Rooms are clean and comfortable, though there's a good chance you'll be facing the freeway or a cemetery—if either of those happen to be an issue. Like the DoubleTree, those few tradeoffs come with a conveniently close proximity to Marina del Rey, LAX and the Westfield Culver City. Wi-Fi is free, with parking available for $18 per night.
Sure, it's a simple roadside motel, but it's tough to beat the prices and location here. Free parking and Wi-Fi pair perfectly with budget-friendly (albeit compact) rooms just a short ride from the beach. Though breakfast is included, you owe yourself a visit to Copenhagen Pastry around the corner.
There's nothing particularly fancy about this high-rise hotel, but it's a comfortable option for your stay. Located on the same block as the Courtyard Marriott, you'll fine the same location conveniences, hampered by just a bit of freeway noise. Wi-Fi is free, and self-parking will run you $17 a day.
