Historical Traveler Reviews Manhattan Beach Marriott
Most comfortable bed ever !
Large room with lots of space & a superb king size bed ! Plenty of electrical outlets to charge camera, video camera, ipod etc. View over the golf course from the balcony. Only 2 miles drive to the beach. Lobby areas and room was very clean. This was a great hotel.
My husband and I stayed at the Manhattan Beach Marriott for our anniversary last weekend. We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been redecorated. The lobby is beautiful, the rooms are a nice size and nicely decorated and clean. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the golf course. The staff was friendly. We had the breakfast buffet in the hotel restaurant and it was very good with a lot of food. They have a nice pool and spa and a nice work out room with cable tv's at every machine! The hotel is located near restaurants (within walking distance) and a theatre right across the street. We definitely had a nice stay and would return to this hotel.
Stayed here for 4 nights in July with family (9 & 12 yrs old).
Rate was 125 USD a night.
This hotel is in perfect condition. Nice, clean, large rooms.
We had a room at upper floor with balcony overlooking the golf course.
The staff is great and very friendly.
The outdoor pool and spa are nice desīte the presence of several birds that obviously can spoil your towels and chairs.
self-parking is 12 USD per night (not included in the rate).
We went to the hotel restaurant every morning for breakfast, the breakfast buffet is very good and service excellent.
It`s nicely located, close to manhattan beach (5 minutes drive) and not so far from the other major beaches (venice & santa monica).
As well, there is a theater walking distance from the hotel which is quite convenient if you want to go out in the evening with the family.
I certainly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to come back.
A good nice hotel
Just spent 6 days here....
Very nice hotel rooms and service. I believe they have been recently decorated.
Location..is good...near by to most of the beach cities. Manhattan beach a few miles west. Venice beach 15 minute drive north. Disneyland was about 40 mins drive.
Rooms were clean, spacious...and bathrooms were nice and simple.
The pool was a good small-mid size. Jacuzzi was very nice. The view around the pool was good overlooking the 9 hole golf course which can be played on by anyone.
We got a good price deal here. But if i were to pay the hotel rate they give when you ask them direct i would say its not worth it. As they quoted me 270 dollars a night for a double room. In my view i would not pay more than 90 pounds per night here.
Restaurant service was ok. Food was nice...Breakfast good but service was very slow indeed.
All in all...i do recommend if you get a good deal-- you will not be disappointed.
Decent place to stay
Rooms were clean, bed comfortable. We had a balcony room overlooking the golf course, although there were no chairs on the balcony. We were only there for 1 night pre-cruise, so didn't bother to ask for them. Breakfast buffet was very good. Lots of dining choices in the area.
Like new- Nice surprise !
OK, I have never been much of a fan of Marriott. BUT, I now have a new appreciation. I stayed at the San Diego Marriott a few months ago and it was great so we tried this one. Nice choice. The only drawback is proximity to beach. 1 mile or so over a big hill from the beach. Cannot smell, hear or feel the ocean. But it is really nice on it's own.
The Manhattan Beach Marriott, has been recently remodeled. The parking garage is old, but when you get in your room it is new, clean and really nice!
The lobby is dated, the staff is pleasant and speedy but not out of their way or over friendly. Stood in line cause they were understaffed on a Friday afternoon. But once we got up to the counter it was quick. On numerous trips down to the pool, or the restaurant or out to Valet we did see a line each time. Seems to be seriously understaffed at the front desk.
The rooms are average size, but comfortable. Paid $10 more for a balcony golf course view. Well worth it. The furniture is new and stylish. The bathrooms have marble or some stone from floor to ceiling and are beautiful and large.
Restaurants are close and way too much good stuff to choose from. Houston's, Il Forniao and Cozy mels, not to mention McCormick & Schmicks. All right there!
WOULD STAY AGAIN!
So much potential!
I stayed at at the Manhattan Beach Marriott several weeks ago. The property seems to have a lot of potential but the rooms are in desperate need of renovation. The carpeting was discolored from all the wear.
However, it is located on a beautiful golf course. The pool also seemed to be a hit with the children. If you're traveling with adults, I may avoid it as it is quite busy.
I was also pleased to see they are offering a communications package for $9.95 per day that includes unlimited internet access and phone calls, including long distance. It's about time something like this is available!
If you're looking for some pampering, visit the Murad Spa across the street. I highly recommend it!
A good hotel...
Stayed here for 6 nights in August, based on reviews in Trip Advisor. Our room comprised two double beds, which was clean and comfortable. It cost $150 pernight. We took the free breakfast package, which I would highly recommend. Eating breakfast was costing us $40-50 a day for a family of four. Parking was an extra $12 per night. Beware of parking locally - we came back from a restaurant one night at about 10.30pm to find about four towing vehicles removing parked cars!
We had a golf course view, overlooking the 9-hole par three course. THe golf is reasonably priced, and the clubs for hire were well known brands. The pool was not large, but adequate for our kids.
We found the location to be excellent. Close to the freeway, and only 5 mins from the beaches by car.
Opposite the hotel is a PF Chang's restaurant, which is fantastic. 5-10 mins walk west is a large mall, which has a good selection of reataurants. We all liked the LA FoodShow - sounds naff, but it served good food and had a good wine list. For our 10 and 13 yr olds, the kid's menu was more than enough. We also enjoyed Il Fornaio restaurant, about 5 mins east.
All staff were very helpful.
We looked at the Portofino Yacht Club at Redondo Beach whilst we were in the area. More expensive than the Marriott, with much smaller rooms.
We would stay at the Marriott again.
Good Option at reasonable price
Stayed in July '04. Very good price as this Hotel is a mile from the beach and is used by business types through the week.
Nice pool area. Overlooks a 9 Hole pay and play Par 3 Golf Course which is obviously very popular with locals.
When we visited this hotel was half the price of the Marriott at Marina del Rey. Ok so it's not on the coast, but if you have a car Manhattan, Hermossa & Redondo beaches are minutes away.
Loved Everything about it!
An extremely pleasant experience for us. Service was good and of course the view was so breathtaking.

... painted like a cow. Everyone found something in there that fit their fancy. The three of them got matching sweatshirts and some mini-surfboards. I was happy with my postcards.
Now we are at the hotel. Matthew did some swimming, Justin and Owen played some basketball, everyone else treated themselves to the free wine and beer at the restaurant, and I've been writing blogs all afternoon. I feel good now that I'm caught up. Phew. Tomorrow: ...
... Rome, also to Greece, Dubai and can happily say i was smart enough to leave with my money and smarts. Yet i come to, of all places Venice beach and friggin get scammed :(
I paid with my travel passport, which I realized, when I checked my bank account later on, they like to add taxes on, and their own tips of whatever they like, without me knowing. So they decided tax and tips they would hit me up for on top of ...
... beach scene. Having had our refuelling stop, return was now imminent before it got too dark. Main aim to get back to the bridge and our side of the marina before lights out & bike lights on, in lit up LA. So we motored it out of Manhattan with no stopping to the canal bridge at Del Ray. I had stepped it up a gear today, having found the bike did have 3 gears, I could now get my back into gear 2 & no longer have to pedal like billio. Mission ...
... the gate. I was thinking he was going to say something stupid that he thought was funny so warned him about doing any I've got a bomb in my suitcase jokes. They are no longer hilarious to anyone. So we strike our first trip challenge. I like these. Through the name changes and re-issue of ticked for Clifford (aka Mark) they had ended up putting us in different seats. I was a bit short with the check-in attendant but said it's ok I'd like to sit next to a stranger ...
... crazy! My favourite ride was Space Mountain, a roller coaster in the dark. Everything in Disneyland looks like it does in the movies! Toon town looks like Mickey Mouse's neighbourhood. On day 8 we went to the Disneyland adventure park, which has more rides and different areas like a Bugs Life area and a Cars area which looks like Radiator ...
