My husband and I spent three nights and enjoyed the location, services, and amenities provided at the Erwin. We loved the location to the beach, nearby restaurants, the historic canals and shopping. Miguel and Camily at the front desk gave fantastic service and were such welcoming faces to see each morning and afternoon. We also enjoyed the restaurants at the...

I was turning 45 years old & we decided to take a quick trip to Venice Beach to celebrate. The was also going to be our 1st out of town trip alone together without the kids since our youngest was diagnosed with a chronic medical condition in 2012, so this was a very much needed mini vacation for us.

Can't thank these guys enough for a fantastic stay! Our room was so pleasant and it doesn't hurt that its decorated in really cool mid century mod style which I adore! It felt like home. While we didn't party at the rooftop we did get a glimpse of the view! Breathtaking! The staff at the Erwin is very professional. Christine...

We stayed here for two nights, and everything here was top notch. The room was ginormous, the beds were comfortable (the pull out sofa even!), the breakfast was delicious, and the service was great as well. Shoutout to Miguel and Kristen at the desk! Everybody was so helpful, and I would no doubt stay here again. Did I mention the...

Camila, Jennifer, Miguel, and Keenan are the most wonderful and attentive people you ever want to meet. I'm sorry Camila if I misspelled your name. I recommend Hotel Erwin to anyone who wants to stay in Venice Beach CA. Without the people I mentioned and many others, our trip would have been great, but they made it amazing for us....

I stayed here for 3 nights and although the 6th floor reminded me of an old motel, the rest of the floors were modern, new, and fresh. The bell/valet staff, the front desk staff, rooftop staff, maid service staff, they were all very well trained to make the guests feel absolutely welcomed. Miguel (the front desk staff) and the bell/valet...

The location of the Hotel Erwin can't be beat! Steps from muscle beach and the stunning Pacific. Jesus upgraded us to room 415, which is an oceanfront suite with a complimentary meat and cheese plate. Stunning sunsets from the balcony. The staff was very friendly with great recommendations, beach towels available, and bottles of water on request. The Eggslut just...

The rooftop bar at Hotel Erwin is a great way to spend the afternoon. The view is the best you will see anywhere, the drinks are great and the prices are reasonable. The staff were friendly and the food was good. Highly recommend checking it out.

I chose this hotel on a recent business trip to Los Angeles because my 18 year old daughter was on spring break and coming out to meet me. It was a good choice! The location was perfect because my daughter had plenty of wandering around to do and strolling on the beach and boardwalk etc. while I was busy working....

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.
