Hotel Fit for the King
The Marina del Rey Ritz-Carlton is Perfect for Our Private Tour Guests
Los Angeles is fortunate to have not just one but two Ritz-Carlton hotels to serve visitors to our part of Southern California. We love them both. The downtown Ritz-Carlton is a central part of the new L.A. Live center in the southern part of the city core where all new buildings and activities have been springing up of late. Restaurants, museums, theaters are making downtown alive even after hours and one weekends. For a more placid stay in the area there is also the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey (“MDR”), right on the ocean. The luxury hotel is walking distance to Venice Beach and the bohemian seashore energy that has always been there. Or guests can enjoy the offerings of the largest man-made marina in the U.S. We run our yacht tours up and down the coast and to Catalina Island from here which makes it very convenient for our guests staying at the Ritz-Carlton MDR. The hotel is also close to the Santa Monica Airport where we can board one of our spacious twin-engine helicopters for an aerial sightseeing adventure up to Malibu and then over Beverly Hills and Hollywood to downtown before circling back. We notice at this time of year that the NBA teams here to play the Lakers or Clippers seem to like the Ritz (is it the large beds or the nutritious servings in the hotel restaurant, the Cast and Plow). If you are planning a visit to Los Angeles you should consider staying where tours by land, sea and air are equally convenient.
