I need a family-friendly hotel near a nice beach in Los Angeles fairly close to LAX for a one-night stay with the kids. It looks like JW Marriott Le Merigot is within walking distance of the Santa Monica Pier. Can you walk to a beach from that one? It is ok for kids? It seems geared toward couples/adults. Or what about the Marriott Marina Del Rey? That one says its 3 blocks from Venice Beach, but the map makes it look further away. Any other suggestions? My kids are 5 and 7. We won't have a car and need to be able to walk to a beach.
