where to stay like a hipster in venice, ca

The Rose Hotel, designed by Abbot Kinney in 1908, first earned notoriety as a debauched haven for his east coast cohorts against the vibrant backdrop of a stirring city teeming with eager exploration, menacing speculation, and impending prohibition (think “Boardwalk Empire” meets “Chinatown”). Its reputation endured, with Charlie Chaplin, Jim Morrison and Dennis Hopper known to drop in over the years.

Just steps from the beach, The Rose Hotel offers rooms and suites decorated in an eclectic mix of modern and midcentury furniture. We recommend the 1500 sq. ft. Pacific Penthouse with 2 bedrooms, which impresses with its massive bay window looking across the boardwalk to the ocean, floor to ceiling art, and Bedouin style cushions.

Indulge in daily deliveries of pure cold pressed juice from the iconic “Moon Juice”, surfing lessons, or beach cruisers to enjoy the 20 miles of bike path along the beach from Malibu to Manhattan Beach.

Get in touch with your bohemian side at the Inn at Venice Beach, a vibrant hotel in Venice Beach that reflects the eclectic vibe of the neighborhood. Located within walking distance of the circus spectacle that is the Venice Beach Boardwalk, and the very chic Abbott Kinney, the hotel is modern and full of surprises for the solo vacationer, corporate traveler, romantic couple and adventurous family alike.

The Inn at Venice Beach boasts 43 rooms including 5 loft suites with complimentary Wi-Fi, upscale bath amenities, flat-screen TVs and inspired artwork that contrasts 1950’s Venice Beach with present-day Venice Beach. Some rooms feature balconies and lofted layouts for the ultimate stay.

We love the complimentary continental breakfast in the courtyard, and Keurig® coffee maker in the rooms with gourmet coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.

Soak up the suite life at Hotel Erwin with 119 rooms and family friendly suites just steps from the famous Venice Boardwalk and Muscle Beach. Rooms feature eclectic design, private balconies, free wifi, and a Venice inspired honor bar. And don't forget to ask for a complimentary day pass to Gold's Gym when you check in.

With one of the best views in town, High Lounge perched on the rooftop of the Hotel Erwin is the perfect chill atmosphere to enjoy sweeping views of the ocean, sunset, and 360 degree views of Los Angeles. Nightly drink specials, live DJs, and locally inspired fare make this the best place to eat, drink, and be merry.

The hotel also has a strong commitment to environmental sustainability including organic and Fair Trade food, Rapidly Renewable Fibers paper products, and in-room toiletries from a company called “Lather” that are 100% vegan and packaged in recyclable containers printed with soy-based inks.

The penthouse comes with concierge services, room service in the form of food delivery from local restaurants steps from your door, and discounts to local gyms, cafes, and spas. Plus the owner and Parachute CEO, Ariel Kaye, offers another important amenity to visitors: local insider recommendations. On her list: Moon Juice, Rose Cafe, Wallflower and Cafe Gratitude, whose matcha and turmeric lattes she says fuels the Parachute team.
