Hotels near Playa Del Rey CA

A Beachside Beauty

It’s no secret there is a lot of beachfront in the city of Los Angeles. Much, if not all, of it is definitely worth visiting, but only one beach community is so unique and breathtaking that it has been chosen time and again as the home for Hollywood’s elite.  Get a little piece of the action when you select one of the hotels near Playa Del Rey CA for your next sojourn to SoCal.

Originally wetlands, the area was dried out by the concrete channel of Ballona Creek and was the mouth of the L.A. river before it shifted to San Pedro.  Though an attempt was made to make it the harbor to the Orient, flooding undermined the effort with the beneficial side effect of creating what is now a regional park.  The first custom built residences started popping up in 1921, using the gorgeous local sand dunes as eye candy, and the population accelerated over the next decade.

Though parts of the neighborhood were pulled down due to the ever-increasing noise of the international airport, Playa Del Rey remains a historic surfing spot, the northern end earning the nickname Toes Over Beach for the famous hang-ten maneuver, and a hot spot for the well-to-do to make their homes.

Right In The Mix

You could stay in some of the other areas of L.A. and be perfectly happy, but why not follow the lead of big names like Phil Jackson, Mel Blanc, Anthony Michael Hall, and Cecil B. Demille and choose one of the hotels near Playa Del Rey CA.  Nestled perfectly between LAX and the shops and dining of Marina Del Rey, it offers the perfect getaway that’s not too far away.  You can access walking paths to the 3.5 miles of beachfront of Santa Monica and Venice Beach, including their famous Muscle Beaches and the marina, or drive the 17 miles to Downtown Los Angeles or Hollywood.
