Manhattan Beach Marriott
Travel Blogs from Manhattan Beach
After cruising round LA yesterday we are today off to Orlando, all up at 6am today off to the airport by 8am, listening to some interesting commentary (waffle) about boarding the flights, I'm sure this guy thinks he is a comedian. Entertainment provided by apple. Donna - not an exciting day. Just travelling - all day.... Breakfast at the hotel. …
... been cancelled. It was a Saturday night by the beach, the place was practically full so my original room was no longer available. I had a dorm room or a private room with no bathroom and window to choose between. Of course I went the private room. I am definitely not cutout for hostels. There were Australians everywhere and people my age were being loud and intolerable. The last thing I wanted was to be sitting around loud, drunken ...
... home to America to see family. They had 2 girls about 10 & 8, 2 boys 5 & 4ish and a little one year old girl. Poor little thing she cried on and off. I found them very interesting to chat to. However the people in front of me. A guy and his son were very intolerant of the poor baby, making comments about his holiday being ruined by the crying etc. I told him that I think it is fine, they have every right to travel on the ...

After a short while I spotted dolphins swimming along the shore, only about 10 metres out, if you were in the water you could easily swim up to them. We also saw pelicans fly along the shoreline, a native bird here but an unusual site for us, I have only ever seen them at Birdworld before.

The pool is small but clean and warm, according to Charles and Oliver as Abi and I didn't go in. It was getting breezy and the sun kept going behind a cloud so we laid on a sun bed and read leaving the boys to mess ...

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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
