Culver City - Culver Hotel

About Culver Hotel:

At the Culver Hotel, classic meets contemporary and history meets modern luxury. With its vintage glamour, artful design, and dash of European ambiance, the uniquely shaped flatiron building feels much like an intimate forty-six bedroom manor. Built in 1924 and once owned by John Wayne, the six-story architectural beauty still stands proudly in the center of Downtown Culver City. A rich and romantic past has awarded the Culver Hotel a distinguished role in cinematic history, having hosted cast members from iconic films such as Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz to modern day productions.
