Hotel Erwin is THE place to stay in Venice! From the minute we pulled up to the valet, we were impressed with the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff! The room was large and very comfortable. The location is perfect. We will be back!

From the day I had made the reservation, to the moment we were leaving after our girl's weekend, it was nothing but a pleasurable experience! The entire staff...especially Julianne, Jennifer and Joey...were exceptionally welcoming, friendly and helpful. Room service, including the mimosa bar we ordered, was fast, flavorful and also very friendly. I cannot say enough good things about the...

My girlfriend and I spent the last day of our trip here and we were not disappointed. I have stayed in the area many times but had not tried the Erwin. I'm really glad we did because this is my new favorite spot. Room and bath was clean and the staff is humble and ultra polite, super accommodating. We wanted...

Although I did not stay at the Erwin. I did go to the rooftop bar for the Sunset. It is located one block off the beach and has the BEST view around. If you are looking for a place to have some drinks or even food while enjoying the setting sun. This place is a must visit. The rooftop is...

if you decide to book a hotel on venice beach, this may be the best! Good restaurant and nice roof bar. Cons= Roof bar not open for our kids (after sunset) Venice may be more for younger people. we should have chosen Santa Monica which is more new and clean.

Even on a chillier evening this is a great rooftop experience of Venice Beach/Santa Monica with fantastic views. There's lovely nibbles to accompany your drinks along with blankets if you need a bit of warmth. In summer booking ahead is recommended.

My husband and I spent one night here as we were traveling all of California over thanksgiving. Upon check in, Joey and Camilla were so nice and upgraded us! They could not have been more pleasant and the room was clean, hip and a great view! And don't forget to go to High, the rooftop bar! Would always recommend staying...

Stayed with my husband for our anniversary. So happy we chose this Hotel, we were upgraded and introduced to the area thoroughly by William. He gave us amazing recommendations, and got us a reservation at Gjelina for dinner. (best restaurant we've been to in a while) The rooftop bar was great with beautiful views. The rooms were modern and spacious....

While I wouldn't say that the hotel is wonderful it is a good place to stay if visiting Venice Beach. It's extremely close to the beach and an easy walk from all the key "must sees". The roof top bar is also great, with wonderful views of the coast. The food in the bar downstairs is top notch bar food....

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.
