The Marina Del Rey Hotel on Bali Way has closed for a $20 million dollar renovation until the Spring 0f 2014. The hotel is part of the Pacific Hotels Company which also operates the Inn at Venice Beach, the Inn at Marina del Rey, the Jamaica Bay Inn and the Hilton Garden Inn. The Marina Del Rey Hotel was built in 1964 and was the first hotel in MDR. The hotel has also hosted many meetings of the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors and the California Coastal Commission. Over the years, many Silver Strand residents have enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, a hidden “neighborhood gem,” with good food at modest prices, beautiful harbor views and quiet ambiance. Hopefully, the restaurant will remain intact after the renovation.
