My husband, 2 kids and me stayed in Ervin in July 2014. In my opinion it is the best hotel on the Venice beach - small boutique, very clean, friendly staff, very close to the beach (1-2 minutes walking). We stayed on the 5th floor in 505 - this room does not have a balcony like others which was a...

This is hands down the only place I want to stay when working in Los Angeles. The Staff here has helped me in so many ways over the years. As goofy as it may sound, it is a true "home away from home" for me. Eugene especially has made my trips out here from the east coast so enjoyable. His...

We stayed at the hotel for five nights - a family a four. Our first impression was a very friendly Eugenie, who upgraded us to a suite to a very reasonable price. We received great service during the whole stay, and I recommend Hotel Erwin to anyone.

On arrival the staff at Erwin were extremely friendly and helpful. The door was held open for us every time we came in and out of the hotel which made us feel very welcomed.

I love this hip-but-friendly hotel in Venice Beach. It has a cool and laidback vibe with surf and street art inspired artwork, very nice staff, and an awesome rooftop bar with 360-degree views of the ocean and Los Angeles. The rooms and suites are modern and very comfortable. The location is just a block back from the beach, so you...

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.
