The Westdrift Story

The very first developers of Manhattan Beach dreamt of a unique resort community built atop coastal sand dunes. While picturesque, these massive dunes created a major challenge for the original township, as westerly winds caused a constant drift of sugary sand across streets, railroads and boardwalks. In a monumental effort that would forever change Manhattan Beach, most of these dunes were leveled in order to build the town and the sand was purchased and shipped to the beaches of Waikiki. Westdrift is a unique compound word inspired by the West Coast lifestyle, the sand dune history of Manhattan Beach and the driftwood finishes used in the hotel lobby. The name evokes the endless California summer for adventurous individuals in search of a boutique hotel experience-an all-in-onedestination with room to stay and play.

Our Manhattan Beach hotel has it all: sun, sand and sea. Located in the upscale South Bay area, our luxury hotel sits on 26 beautifully landscaped acres just 3 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The hotel will be transforming to an Autograph Collection. Autograph Collection is comprised of upper-upscale to luxury independent, with distinctive personality, Exactly like nothing else.
