Circa 1908, renovated 2002

Built as a hotel right in the thick of things on Ocean Front Walk in 1908 and renovated in 2002, Venice Beach Suites and Hotel provides a sense of Venice in its heyday. Substantial differences can be seen between the building in its early days (postcard) to in its present incarnation.
