The location itself is absolutely fantastic for the price we paid (approx. $85/per person). There is a stunning rooftop view in the Bayview Room, the room has floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel was recently remodeled, so it's very modern and trendy.
However, the Marina del Rey Marriot gets 3-stars when it comes to service -- it could have been more organized.
If you're on a budget, the MDR hotel is a great deal for the price. Marina del Rey is an awesome West L.A. location without the West L.A. (Santa Monica, Century City) price tag. It's a short walk to Venice Beach, the Venice Canals, restaurants and the Boardwalk.
