Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

An ambiance of modern, relaxed sophistication strikes just the right note at this trendy hotel with a boutique vibe.Located at the nexus of Silicon Beach (home to L.A.'s top tech firms), and some of SoCal's most appealing seaside communities (Marina del Rey, Santa Monica, and Venice Beach), Hotel MdR is the perfect spot to get away, stay connected, and host an event that everyone will remember.

The long, palm-lined driveway leads to a sleek porte-cochère entry where you step into an airy, open-concept lobby that flows from one sexy-chic conversation area to the next. Sinuous couches and comfy contemporary chairs invite people to mix and mingle, while off to the side the "Energy Room", outfitted with a ping pong table, can get the party started.

The lobby's glass walls provide gorgeous views of the grounds and open up to several stunning event spaces that can be used individually or combined. The romantic Haven Patio features twinkle lights and lots of greenery, ideal for a wedding ceremony. Follow with cocktails and a very Cali-cool reception staged at their poolside cabanas and adjacent Cove Patio. Or, sip drinks on the Barbianca Patio, next to their fabulous Barbianca Local Kitchen Restaurant and stylish Lounge. Its emphasis on healthy, locally sourced ingredients and Italian/Mediterranean cuisine served with an innovative Napa Valley panache has won it high praise. Barbianca would make an excellent place to begin your celebration with a welcome party, rehearsal dinner, or intimate reception. There's even a private dining room for your select group of 24.

Couldn't possibly leave anyone off your guest list? Then the upscale Panache Ballroom, which can easily accommodate 200 for dinner and dancing, is for you. Their staff is happy to help you personalize the space with dramatic lighting and decorative touches to suit the occasion, whether it's a wedding, corporate gala, graduation bash, or new startup launch.

They offer three wedding packages that include extensive menu options and food station displays, as well as a pre-event menu tasting, an on-site coordinator, and a complimentary wedding-night bridal suite. Your guests will love the tech-savvy accommodations—complete with balconies—not to mention digging into their scrumptious breakfasts. They'll also be grateful for the fitness center, pool, and easy stroll to the marina to take in the colorful boats.

Speaking of strolling, check out nearby Abbot Kinney Boulevard for unique boutiques and the Marina Marketplace for fun shops and eateries. Need more enticement? Hotel MdR is totally pet friendly, so bring your best buddy along for the walk!
