Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The flat-iron shaped Culver Hotel building was built in 1926 and still has all of its Jazz Age glamour but updated to meet modern sensibilities. Opulent crystal chandeliers and wainscoted walls meet jewel-toned furniture and modern accents. Rooms all have antique furniture and marble bathrooms, as befits a hotel on the National Register of Historic Places.

Hollywood lore says that during the filming of "The Wizard of Oz," the entire cast of Munchkins bunked here, running wild throughout the hotel. Charlie Chaplin, who once owned the property, was rumored to have sold it to John Wayne for a dollar. The heritage hotel continues to be used as a background in numerous film and TV shows even today.

The hotel has its own restaurant serving three meals a day, a fitness center and an outdoor patio. But guests would be remiss in not exploring this pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, which is home to several film studios, eateries and art galleries.
