I always stay at the Hotel Erwin in Venice, CA when I visit there for business and pleasure. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful, the rooms are spacious, clean and loaded with personality. The restaurant/bar in the lobby is very convenient. The rooftop bar and its stunning views is amazing. The beach is a 2 minute walk... More

I had visited The Erwin before but only to go to the rooftop bar. The room we had was really nice with a small balcony looking to the side of Venice Beach. The rooftop bar was really windy so we opted for the restaurant/bar in the reception of the hotel. The rooms were really clean and you are paying for... More

We spent a few days there to celebrate our engagement - perfect location with a totally South California vibe, exceptional service (thank you, Shawn & team!), great views over the beach and a roof top bar to die for!

Visited for a night and the staff is super friendly and helpful. The restaurant downstairs was great. It is right next to the beach and they offered helpful things to do in the area in the elevator each day. Would definitely go back again.

if you have a reason to spend a few nights near venice beach this is the place to be, great rooftop bar, fun vibe, more than decent breakfast and some very nice people (high-fives to Sandy & Shawn ;) ) make it my go-to place.

Located just off the Venice boardwalk/beach, so location is clearly the highlight of this hotel. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby, and ultra hip Abbot Kinney is only a 10 minute walk away. Friendly and helpful front desk staff, who were always happy to give recommendations or tips. The restaurant (Barlo) was excellent. Only had breakfast one day, and cocktails... More

Booked a room with a partial sea view a few months in advance, but when we arrived, they seemed pretty surprised to see us! After a very long trip from UK to LA with a small child (nearly 24 hours door to door), we then had to wait around while things were worked out and then we were given a... More

Hotel Erwin has the best location in Venice Beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The valet service is very handy after a long shopping day. Up on the roof there's a lounge bar with spectacular views of Venice Beach. The rooms are big and very nice decorated.

My Auntie has lived in this area for over 35 years. She frequents the coffee shop and we went to the rooftop bar once and had a wonderful time. Today we had family in from Washington, DC and took them to this place for after-brunch drinks. We were told the wait was an hour. We had no problem, ordered great... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood 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.
