At the new version of the Jamaica Bay Inn, Marina del Rey gets what it has needed for a long while: an on-the-water, upscale hotel that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Call it barefoot luxury. The Jamaica Bay Inn sits at the intersection of Palawan Way and Admiralty Way, along the marina’s tranquil Mother’s Beach, known for its gentle waves. The Pacific Ocean and the Venice fishing pier are a short walk away. More than 16 months ago, the hotel closed for an extensive renovation that expanded it to 111 rooms and added marina-view suites and a 150-seat indoor/outdoor restaurant called Vu that serves breakfast, lunch and eclectic dinners.
