Location fantastic. Roof top bar was gorgeous, preferential guest treatment. Rooms up to date, clean and large. Great place to rest before our long trek back to Aus. Highly recommend. Guys on front desk helpful, valet service was handy - look at who you book with otherwise this can be pricey. Very Venice quirky and some nice local eats.

My stay at Erwin was a blast. Kenneth, who works at the front desk, was so accommodating and lovely and went beyond to make sure we had a good stay. The restaurant downstairs was delicious and our server, Blake, was dreamy and fun! Thanks Erwin! Definitely coming back.

Overall Hotel Erwin was good but not great. The rooms are of a good size and had a small kitchenette. This was the first time I had a hotel give me keys to the mini-bar! For some reason the bathrooms are quite tiny. But otherwise the room was comfortable and even though the hotel has prime location on Venice beach,...

My room was very nice..no view at all just a building next door. The High rooftop is fabulous in nice weather...must have a reservation, gets very busy for sunset. My only problem with this venice beach area is in the morning when you want to go out for a run or a walk it very seedy..I didn't feel safe..but later...

Erwin hotel has been a great surprise. It is in a perfect location in the middle of Venice, very close to the beach, and has a large and cool terrace as its greatest asset with unparalleled ocean views. The terrace has a bar that gets busy at night with a very cool atmosphere, offering a great experience even if service...

We are all about the "experience", and Hotel Erwin gave us just that and so much more. From the moment we checked-in till we checked out the staff went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. The weather was fabulous and so we spent 3 hours on the rooftop patio watching the most amazing sunset. What a treat! A...

This Hotel is simple - in a good way - with everything you may need. It is in the heart of Venice Beach, so the location is unbeatable; rooms are simple but nice, with a small balcony which is useful if you want to let your towel dry after one day on the beach, A beautiful roof terrace is on...

I was supposed to spend two nights here but ended up with only one. The hotels main focus is clearly the roof top bar - everything seems to evolve around this. When arriving with bags the valet guys dis not even hold up the door. The foyer was crowded with people waiting for the elevator. Once in the sea view...

This hotel is awesome. The service you get is the best. The people who work here are so helpful and nice. We had a suite and it was comfortable and relaxing. I would definitely stay here again when Im in Venice next time! Best regards, 3 norwegian girls.

I was back in California for a business trip. Unfortunately I had to stay in Costa Mesa for a portion of it, but I kept an extra two days so I could come back and experience Hotel Erwin again! I was greeted with a very warm welcome from Kristen and Kamila. At most hotels, the check in and check out...

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
