You might have a sense of déjà vu here since this resort, overlooking L.A.'s largest marina, is a favorite location of dozens of TV and film productions. Traditionally styled rooms in warm, gold tones have French doors, marble baths, and feather beds, but the true luxury is in the spectacular, panoramic views of the marina, its boats and the many kayakers and paddleboarders playing in the water. Dine outside for a waterside view at the new Cast & Plow, the hotel's chic restaurant, or kick back in the clubby lobby lounge. Families love the chlorine-free pool's saline purification system as well as the welcome balloon animals and toys for the kiddos. Club-level rooms are worth the price as food and drinks are available throughout the day.
