Ritz Carlton Hotel, Marina Del Rey, California
Heading State-side for a warm break this Winter? Make for the Los Angeles coast.
Think 1940s film stars in open-topped sports cars driving along the sea front. Stroll along Venice Beach and visit Marina Del Rey, a convenient distance from Los Angeles airport and Santa Monica. It’s also within easy reach of the Topanga and Santa Monica mountains state parks and the seaside resort of Malibu.
The Ritz Carlton has an amazing waterfront location and views of the marina from every room, each of which has a balcony.
Dine in the Cast & Plow restaurant where local produce is cooked to perfection with herbs from the chef’s garden. Rooms have designer Asprey bathrooms and Egyptian cotton linens and there’s a spa with great treatments.
Book it: Club Level Room £407 per night Average temperatures December to March 14-170 C
