The Experience

exp-photo-3

During your stay at the Inn at Playa del Rey, you can be as active or as laid back as you want to be.

A 30-mile-long bicycle path is just blocks from our beach hotel near Los Angeles.  Walk, jog, or ride bikes to the Marina or south to Manhattan Beach. There are nearby opportunities to golf, hike, whale watch, play tennis, or go boating or kayaking. If you’d simply like to revitalize yourself, try sunbathing on the wide stretches of beach at the end of our street, or enjoy the sunshine on your own deck or in our private garden. We provide the beach towels.


ACTIVITIES

Shopping
Some of LA’s most unique shopping is right in our backyard. Visit the trendy Waterside shops in Marina Del Rey or go south for the upscale boutiques of Manhattan Beach or the funky eclectic collections in Venice Beach and on Abbot Kinney Blvd. Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade and amusement pier or our Westside Pavilion is a short drive. Farmers’ Markets are close by.

It’s always fun to souvenir shop along Hollywood Boulevard, see the Walk of Fame, and sample any of the great cafés and bars.

Museums and Theaters
Los Angeles offers a variety of world-class museums. Plan your day around a visit to the Getty Villa, the Getty Center (visible from the Inn), LA County Art Museum, LA Museum of Contemporary Art, The new Broad Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Science and Industry, Skirball Center, the new Petersen Auto Museum, or Bergamot Station Art Center.  Enjoy world-class performances at the stunning Frank Gehry-designed Disney Concert Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the Hollywood Bowl, Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, Wallis Annenberg Center in Beverly Hills or countless other theaters large and small.

FAMILY FRIENDLY

Inn at Playa del Rey welcomes families.

Bring the kids. Welcome the grandkids.

All ages.

We have a variety of rooms and beds for a variety of family configurations:

A two-bedroom suite with two full baths, a first-floor family suite with a children’s alcove – their own bed and television, and roomy deck overlooking the wetlands, or our standard rooms, with extra beds, trundles, sofa beds, porta-cribs or  roll-aways. Our television networks include family friendly programming such as the Disney Channel.

Children find many food favorites from our homemade breakfast buffet including cheerios, bananas, oatmealand egg soufflés. The fact that breakfast is free means that children can eat as little or as much as they want, and everyone leaves full and happy.

Snacks and lemonade are available all day for everyone.

Many families take the opportunity to explore our bird books and field glasses and teach their children (and themselves) how to identify any number of birds residing in our 500-acre back yard.

And of course there is the beach – just a few blocks away. We supply the beach towels and sand pails.
