Our room was a good size and had two beds that had down mattress pads on them. HEAVEN! I didn’t want to get out of bed. The room had a small table and nice fluffy chair, a desk with the Internet access, and a desk chair. There was a small (skinny) patio to stand on outside our sliding glass door. The bathroom was huge, just like I like it to be. The only complaint I had was that the middle elevator (there were three) was possessed and seemed to be the only one working. I swear: my room was on the seventh floor, and when I’d get into the elevator and press lobby, it would stop at every other floor in between, and no one ever got on from the other floors, a little creepy if you ask me.
The view from my room was nice. We faced the beach, not the marina.
In the morning, there were several different kinds of complimentary fresh coffee in the lobby with flavored creamers and complimentary water bottles.
I like the Marriott because it’s right near everything. It’s a hop, skip, and jump from Fisherman’s Village and the harbor cruises. There are also about 45 restaurants within 1-mile radius of the hotel. The concierge can help with fishing trips, kayak, and jet-ski rentals; restaurant recommendations; and just about anything else you can think of.

The concierge was so helpful, always giving us maps and assisting us with advice regarding good restaurants or directions! The hotel was within walking distance of Venice Beach, Cheesecake Factory, Chart House Restaurant, and the marina. It was about 15 minutes from LAX. Santa Monica was also only 15 minutes away. Even if you are a hotel guest, you must pay $10 per day for parking, which I thought was pretty high.
We drove from the hotel to Century City to watch the taping of the TV show Just Shoot Me. It wasn't far away, but it was Friday afternoon on the L.A. freeways . . . it took 1 1/2 hours, so my advice is to leave a lot of extra time for traffic if you want to go into downtown L.A. or Universal Studios.
Overall, this is a beautiful hotel if you want to be near the marina and beach.
