Cali-luxe waterfront digs with yachters and businessmen in mind
Set on the waterfront of a small-craft marina, the Ritz-Carlton is a traditional stay done in typical clubby Ritz-Carlton fashion with marble and dark woods in public spaces. The 304 Guestrooms are done up with more nautical flair with yellow, blue, and gold hues and Marina Terrace rooms come with a water view. More spectacular marina views are on hand at jer-ne (pronounced “journey”), serving California cuisine with a focus on local seafood and produce.
In the Area
When it’s time to escape the business conference or when you’re ready to hit the beach book a bike and pedal a few minutes to Venice Beach. One of Los Angeles’s most famous neighborhoods, Venice Beach is known for its boardwalk where countless vendors hock their wares and the famed muscle beach weightlifters-slash-performers flex their muscles. A few blocks from the sand, Lincoln Boulevard is where most of the restaurants and boutiques are located. Here you’ll find Casablanca, an eatery where the decor recreates its namesake movie’s set. The food is a bit lackluster, but the environs — and the tequila cart — make up for it. For a taste of German, pay a visit to Wurstkuche for sausages and craft beer in a bright, exposed brick and concrete cafe. Like the tats you’re seeing on the Beach? Get inked at Black Diamond Tattoo, where resident artist Shingken, from Tokyo, pens beautiful patterns.
