Reviewed 2 September 2014

Very good location but over priced! Rooms are clean and comfortable but not extraordinary. I expected more for the price. Staff at the reception was not very alert or helpful. Rooftop bar was overrated.

We had a great time at the Erwin. The staff is fantastic, from valet to front desk to the bartenders and wait staff. Our room was fantastic, and the view south from the room was amazing. The roof deck is of course the highlight, and it did not disappoint. We were on the roof for sunset, and they definitely prioritize...

The Hotel Erwin is a hip boutique hotel with a very accommodating staff. Just a few steps to the Pacific Ocean, Muscle Beach, the Boardwalk and more. We've been taking our grandchildren there for several years, and they love it. We stay there any time we're in the area. While you enjoy your cocktails at sunset, the kids can huddle...

We had a great time staying at the Hotel Erwin near Venice Beach in Los Angeles, CA. We rented a car and the valet parking was convenient, given the otherwise tight parking in the area.

I have not stayed at the hotel, however went to the Hightop Roof Bar and could not have felt more unwelcome. First of all, my two girlfriends and I arrived at 2:00 to have a drink and a quick bite.

I stayed at the Hotel Erwin in June 2014 in a King Suite with Ocean view. separate bedroom, pull out bed in living room, full kitchen. Let's put this review in context: Hotel room itself- 3 star.

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.
