The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey
Subtle French-influenced elegance in the marina.
When travelers hear the word "Ritz-Carlton," no matter where they are in the world, they know they can expect understated sophistication and excellent service. In Marina del Rey, guests are treated to the added indulgence of a casual-chic, marina-front setting. It’s no wonder this deluxe bunkhouse is one of the most popular locations for meetings, events and conferences in L.A. One of only a handful of Ritz-Carltons in California, this high-rise features modernized rooms, furnished with tasteful art and private balconies with city and marina views. Two key-access-only floors (dedicated to the hotel's exclusive club rooms) come with lots of cushy extras. The hotel's restaurant, Cast & Plow, serves farm-to-table bistro fare. Weddings are a specialty at this property and are hosted in the beautiful banquet rooms. You’ll have a hard time finding something the staff doesn’t do well, from pressing suits with style to mixing a perfect martini for consumption on the teak wood deck.
