If you’re looking for that new sleeper couch, dining room table, hand carved chair, six-foot armoire, or even a desk lamp, before you go anywhere else, stop in to Hotel Surplus Outlet and check out what they have. This warehouse store located in Van Nuys has all types of new and gently used high-quality, one-of-a-kind and designer-like furniture at deep discounts.

Hotel Surplus Outlet has been offering liquidated furniture from four and five star hotels across the country for thirteen years. Hotels constantly renovate and remodel their rooms and Hotel Surplus Outlet negotiates the best prices for their inventory. Anything you’d see in a luxury hotel or timeshare can arrive in the warehouse at Hotel Surplus Outlet.

Contemporary to conservative designs.

Recently goods were delivered from the Beverly Hills Hotel, Hotel Oceana Santa Monica, Pebble Beach Resorts, and Casa del Mar Laguna. Sometimes there are many pieces from one hotel and sometimes there are just one or two items. Furniture can be super contemporary (from the Mondrian Hotel) or ultra conservative (from the Regent Beverly Wilshire).

Armoires.

Recently goods were delivered from the Beverly Hills Hotel, Hotel Oceana Santa Monica, Pebble Beach Resorts, and Casa del Mar Laguna.

On my last visit I found a six-piece dining room set by Urban Styles for $699.95, a Queen size sofa bed for $599.95 (with two pillows) and a new seven-piece bedroom set for $799.95. There were also gently used Hamilton Beach mini coffee makers for $12.95 and dishes for $1 each.

In addition to interior designers, many television shows and movie studios shop at Hotel Surplus Outlet, especially now that most of the prop shops in town have closed their doors. This family-run business has supplied furniture for “CSI”, “The Jay Leno Show” and many HGTV shows including “Design on a Dime.”

Dressers.

You might not initially consider “gently used” hotel furniture to decorate your home, but keep in mind that these are “hospitality” grade pieces that require higher quality fabric and fittings than “consumer” grade furniture. Although Hotel Surplus Outlet doesn’t offer delivery of their merchandise (they  do have recommendations), the staff is always willing to work with you on prices.
