The Inn at Playa del Rey in coastal Los Angeles has joined the Four Sisters Inns collection, it was announced today by company President Tamara Mims.
Situated adjacent to the nearly 600-acre Ballona Wetlands preserve, yet only four miles from Los Angeles International Airport, Inn at Playa del Rey is “in LA” but worlds apart. With a location convenient to all of the attractions of the city, inn guests can easily access world-class museums, shopping, restaurants and corporate offices. But they can also enjoy watching a great blue heron glide over the marine estuary right outside, walk to the beach, or pedal the nearby 30-mile bicycle path on one of the inn’s bikes.
Inn at Playa del Rey’s 23 guestrooms include many with views of the wetlands and Marina del Rey beyond. Some rooms have fireplaces and balconies. Several rooms are perfect for families or friends traveling together, offering two bedrooms or extra bedding options. Room rates range from $235 to $615 per night, and include breakfast, afternoon wine and hors d’oeuvres, wireless Internet, on-site parking and use of the inn’s bicycles. Specials and packages are often offered to make a stay here an even better value.
Inn at Playa del Rey owner Susan Zolla built the property in 1995, following the success of her Channel Road Inn in Santa Monica (a restored, historic building, also part of the Four Sisters Inns collection). Realizing many visitors were drawn to a more intimate, seaside option when visiting Los Angeles, Zolla embraced the opportunity to create a purpose-built property in Playa del Rey. The thoughtfully designed Inn at Playa del Rey takes full advantage of its splendid location. The beach is just four blocks away. Shops and restaurants are an easy walk. And despite the proximity to the airport, the inn is not under flight patterns, so noise from air traffic is not an issue.
“Many of our guests are returning guests,” said Zolla. “We pride ourselves on knowing their preferences, whether that means the type of room they want, or their favorite breakfast egg dish.”
Inn at Playa del Rey’s manager is Heather Suskin, an experienced innkeeper who has served as manager at both Channel Road Inn and Inn at Playa del Rey for the past 20 years. “Heather’s wealth of knowledge is a huge asset,” said Mims. Whether guests are in town for leisure or business, she is adept at anticipating their needs and ensuring they enjoy their time with us.”
