Lonely Planet review
Long a funky, and rather dingy, beachside inn at the northern end of Venice's Boardwalk, the Cadillac Hotel is now quietly hip thanks to new management. Minimalist rooms don't break any size barriers, but there's room enough for fridges, plasma cable TVs, iPod docks, and designer sinks and glass tilework in the bathrooms.
An Art Deco shell frames the lobby level, and mosaic tiles line the floor of what's destined to be a restaurant - for now there's a pool table, coffee and ice. The 47 rooms have white walls and bedding and wall-to-wall carpets; rooms ending in 01 and 02 have full-on ocean views. Head to the rooftop deck where you can see all of Santa Monica Bay, from Malibu to Palos Verdes - turn around and the LA Basin is before you. The boardwalk outside can be rowdy (definitely during the day, and a little unsavory at night), but there's 24-hour security, and you're paying for the authentic beach experience.
