  Sailing in Marina del Rey
by FreedomToTravel

Staying in Venice is fun but sometimes can be difficult as there are a limited number and range of accommodations there. Adjacent to Venice is the harborfront community of Marina del Rey, which has over 1,000 hotel rooms situated in six hotels. It is walking distance to Venice Pier, and therefore, very convenient to the area.

The hotels there range from small bed and breakfasts like the Foghorn Harbor Inn, independent small hotels like Marina del Rey and Marina International, the bigger Marina del Rey Marriott and the five-diamond Ritz-Carlton. But it does give you some options to look at. The tourism office in Marina del Rey can also give suggestions for visitors to the area. It is located at 4701 Admiralty Way, or email them at info@visitmarinadelrey.com

Unique Qualities: Most (not all) of the properties are located on the waterfront of the Marina, and most have great views of the boats and water. Restaurants are within walking distance, and you can also rent bicycles and skates there, too. Visitors can also rent power and sailboats and kayaks by the hour to sail around the harbor there, and several companies offer weekend dinner cruises, cocktail cruises and fishing trips. The community is also famous for big weekend buffet brunches in the larger restaurants.
