Critic Reviews



This 1924 triangular brick hotel smack in the center of town contains a slice of Culver City's history – and not just because it housed the munchkins during 'The Wizard of Oz'. The grand lobby restaurant, which doubles as a jazz club on weekends and Sunday brunch, is decked out in wingback chairs and guilded paintings; gaze upward at the original murals and moulding along the ceiling.

Travel + Leisure


Los Angeles-area painters and curators have transformed the industrial spaces of Culver City into a thriving art colony, and the metamorphosis at the Culver Hotel mirrors that resurgence. When the six-story property first opened in 1924, it quickly became a favored haunt of creative types.

Los Angeles Times


Designed by Curlett & Beelman, also responsible for Art Deco buildings including the Hollywood Roosevely Hotel and downtown's Eastern Columbia, the Culver was once an entertainment mecca, most famously the home to nearly all of the actors who played the Munchkins during production of 'The Wizard of Oz'.


The upscale Culver Hotel is a charming historic property in the heart of trendy downtown Culver City. It's within walking distance of shops, restaurants, theaters, film studios, and galleries, and it provides easy access to downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Santa Monica, and LAX.
