Stayed at the hotel for business. Perfect location and excellent service - Joey at the front desk was especially helpful. They really went above and beyond to accommodate and make the experience a positive one.

I recently visited Venice Beach and stayed at the Hotel Erwin. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had at a hotel because the staff exceeded my expectations. They were very friendly and went out of their way to assist us every way possible! The hotel was extremely clean and had stunning views.

In a recent visit to the Erwin I had the pleasure of interacting with their incredibly helpful staff. I was arranging a bachelorette party and Joey and Will went above and beyond to make sure it was going to be a memorable experience. The location was great and the rooftop bar was fun but not pretentious. I would highly recommend...

Great location, great ocean view, and outstanding service. Miguel at the front desk could not have been more accommodating!! Upgraded our room to a one bedroom suite, complimentary champagne delivered to our room, and then kindly extended our stay during a busy Spring Break week! Bravo, Hotel Erwin!!

It was good & bad. GOOD -It looks to be the best place in Venice. It's in the heart of the city, walk outside and you are at the skate park, or all types of restaurants, or the beach. And Santa Monica is 2 miles away. -the rooms are pretty -the rooftop deck is beautiful. We had a great bartender...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Erwin and enjoyed our stay very much. The location of the hotel is perfect. It's right on the boardwalk and the doorstep to the ocean with many restaurants and unique shops to see along the way. The hotel also has the only rooftop bar in Venice which has amazing views as the sunset. The...

For staying at Venice beach, I don't think there is any cooler location. What great views I had, even from my room, and seeing both the beach and boardwalk brought a smile to my face. Being able to walk just anywhere was fantastic and so many good restaurants and funky stores around. There were a couple of glitches with my...

Stopped in here on a recent trip to Los Angeles and enjoyed every minute of it. I was visiting the city and High Rooftop was the start of our bar journey. Britney at the rooftop was an awesome server and had the pleasure to interact with Ray and Kenan. This place is doing it right ! Do yourself a favor...

It's the kind of place I know I am supposed to like. It's cool and hip and modern and I appreciate the architecture and Venice beach is just outside my window. The rooftop bar provides beautiful scenery overlooking LA so what's the problem? For me this is one of those modern hip hotels that is more cool than comfortable, more...

Just got back from a long weekend at the Hotel Erwin with my family. Love the location a block from the Venice Beach action; the ambiance from lobby to rooftop setting; and the speedy room service. Size of the suite was perfect for three. Shout out to Kristen, Joey, and all the employees there for a helpful, pleasant attitude. Plan...

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.
