As California reopened on June 15, a new 1915 landmark opened its doors in Venice Beach on June 18. The Venice V Hotel originally called the Waldorf was the past residence of the golden Hollywood age for A-listers with the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, Wallace Beery and Clara Bow. The boutique hotel attracts creative nomads and its theme is inspired by action sports culture such as surf, skate and bike.

Located at 5 Westminster Ave in the heart of Venice, the historic building has preserved its original details such as the riveted steel beams, a central grand staircase and a painstakingly restored elevator which is considered to be the oldest operating elevator west of the Mississippi. With its historic preservation, the trendy building also weaved some modern touches like custom LED lighting, flat screens offering Apple TV, platform beds, oversized noise cancelling windows, Aesop bath amenities and imported linens. A once-basement has been converted to a tech-friendly space for celebratory gatherings, private screenings, and group meetings. In the main lobby, the main attraction of its modern theme is the 12 by 12 lobby mural of Venice visionary Abbot Kinney built entirely of over 4,000 skateboard wheels.
