Turning Heads: the Revamped Marina del Rey Hotel

If you’ve been anywhere near Burton Chace Park in the last week or so, you may have gazed across the channel and noticed a pretty snazzy sight — the newly revamped and fully awesome Marina del Rey Hotel by Pacifica Hotels. Yep, just over 50 years after they first opened (that would be 1964 for those of us who are mathematically challenged), the iconic hotel went through a $25 million dollar renovation to revitalize the waterfront property with 4-star amenities, 155 brand-new guest rooms and 9 luxury suites. And now, it’s open for business.


So what can you expect if you decide to swing by? Here are some of the highlights:

  • New SALT Restaurant and Bar (View Menus)
  • Firepit Lounging Areas
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Year-Round Heated Infinity Pool and Spa with Sundeck Facing the Marina
  • Cocktails and light menu offered poolside
  • 55-inch LED HD TVs in every room
  • 24-Hour Room Service
  • 24-Hour Business Center
  • Bike Rentals
  • Gorgeous waterfront location off Bali Way

When you pop online to check out what guests were saying during the hotel’s first week open, it’s pretty clear the new design is turning some heads. Comments about its “clean, simple and elegant” design and “friendly and welcoming” staff make it sound pretty darn good. Plus, it looks like they’re having a few Grand Opening specials, so if you’re in the mood for a mini-vacay on the waterfront, now might be a good time to book those plans.
