Culver Hotel

Opened in 1924, the Culver Hotel is legendary. The Munchkins allegedly ran amok there while shooting The Wizard of Oz; John Wayne supposedly won it from Charlie Chaplin over a hand of poker and later turned down offers from the Black Panthers to make it their headquarters; Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and Ronald Reagan all stayed here. By the 1980s, its golden years were over and it was allowed to deteriorate. Today, this landmark among Culver City Hotels is back in good hands. The Renaissance Revival lobby with its high ceilings and dark wood trim has been nicely restored. The rooms have been redone with a mix of high tech and antiques, including period touches such as vintage subway tiles in the bathrooms.
