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.

Staying at “Hotel Erwin” was truly a memorials experience! The staff was very friendly, accommodating, attentive, patient, and professional! They make you right at home. The building it’s self is very clean and nicely furnished! I am an LA native so I’m not easily impressed but I will say I was thoroughly impressed with my stay here. The highlight of the stay would be staff MIGUEL and BROOKE! They were truly amazing and professional staff! Very warm and personable disposition, all the while going above and beyond their duties. They deserve praise and recognition for their amazing contributions to my stay! Thank you! My loved ones and myself will be back.

While traveling back to LA for a couple days with a new fella showing him the sites we decided to just stay in Venice for the night. We stumbled across Hotel Erwin and was pleasantly surprised from the moment we opened the door. Brooke and the rest of your staff are fantastic. You are amazing, so informative and sweet. Since we are dealing with Covid-19 there of course were some new rules but totally understandable. The staff are disinfecting everything in site every time I see them. The room was incredibly clean and I dig the decor. Thank you for being open, keeping us guests safe while still allowing us to enjoy our time. See you again!

I love hotel Erwin so much! I’ve been several times to the rooftop bar. This month I had the pleasure of staying at the hotel. I actually didn’t miss that the roof was closed this time (due to Covid 19 restrictions) because staying at the hotel was such a pleasure in itself! Thank you, hotel Erwin, for staying open during this time of worldwide uncertainty and continuing to offer happy and positive vibes within a safe and peaceful environment. So important! I want to give a special mention Miguel for the wonderful service I received upon checking in. I felt so safe and looked after! He was able to upgrade me to an incredible suite from my Hotel Tonight reservation for a very reasonable price. I really appreciated that he called up to the room right after I checked in to make sure I had everything I needed. I truly wish all hotels follow hotel erwin’s lead and realize the positive impact of a quality service. The check-in experience itself sets the tone for the whole stay. Miguel really made me feel like a valued guest. Great job :)

Right by the beach. Valet parking (expensive). Very tiny lobby. Friendly staff. Welcome cocktail when you check in. Spacious room with tiny balcony. Note that you should keep the balcony door locked because all the room balconies abut and one can easily climb over the low partition. Bed was comfortable. Also note that 6th floor rooms get the base from the rooftop bar. They warn you when you check in.

Many others have written about the amenities (all at luxury levels) and the location. (Ahhhh....and that Rooftop lounge with great service, drinks and menu choices with the most beautiful view of the sunset from the Palisades all the way south to the Marina}. I want to speak about the service. From checking in to checking out completely professional and flawless. I especially want to acknowledge Miguel at the front desk who made the stay for my daughter's celebration of her 30th absolutely wonderful. Miguel not only made sure everything was taken care of properly leading up to the check-in and amazingly on his day off he contacted me and the staff to assure that everything was just perfect. In all my days of travel, I seldom remember having such an experience at this level and I want to thank you Miguel for all the special considerations.
