Venice Beach is a peculiar place and, being central to it, a stay in the Erwin guarantees exposure to the best and worst. Happily though, the staff are first rate and help to ease the culture shock. We were very impressed by Eugene and the young woman from Maui whose name I forgot. We upgraded our room for a better... More

For a higher end boutique hotel, the room and amenities were no different than a Hampton Inn. The hotel interior, roof top and restaurant are cool and the location is convenient. There's an extra charge if you want to check out later. Staff was friendly. ........"...................

Travelled with 3 teens - we all loved it. Spacious room with funky hipster design. Amazing breakfast. In the middle of Venice scene but quiet. Make reservations for roof - make sure they know you are a guest. We will be back! Valet parking a good deal too.

This was our second trip to Venice Beach and we stayed at the Erwin both times. We could not have picked a better hotel. It is in a perfect location near the beach and all the action. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. It has a great restaurant and the views from the rooftop are magnificent.... More

I had no idea where to stay for my first trip to Venice Beach. Plus I was taking my 15 year old grandson so I was nervous about where we would stay and what kind of experience we would have.

We picked this hotel so that we could watch friends compete in American Ninja Warrior Season 6 the weekend of March 14 & 15 on Venice Beach. We wanted a hotel that was more upscale and close to the venue. This hotel is definitely right in the heart of Venice Beach. We were very impressed with all of the services... More

Had a great stay at the Erwin. Since I met up with my wife there the luggage shuffle was a little confusing and we left some items in the car repeatedly- Chargers, Blue tooths, Glasses etc. Denver and Mike the Valets were super cool and had no problem helping me grab a few things, a few times. I like that... More
