The catering and lodging staff worked with me on every detail.
Our two day meeting went seamlessly. There was even an interesting surprise at every seat in our meeting space (I don't want to give anything away).

The catering manager worked with us on our budget and kept us from going over.
The onsite server for our meals was very friendly and met every request we made.They even provided fancy bottled water (fiji). Their break options were very creative and fun.

The view from the rooftop was amazing. We were welcomed to enjoy the view at night with heat lamps and blankets - the weather didn't allow but it's a nice option.

I would definitely come to the Hotel Erwin again, if given the chance.

Room Tip: I think ocean view would be quieter than the city view - there is a bar across the street and their music can get a little loud.

Hi, i spent 3 days here around Thanksgivings day. Had a great time visiting Venice Beach for the 1st time after not being there over 18 years ago and also not flying since then. Got a great surprise finding out Medical Marijuana is legal there and everywhere i could smell its lovely aroma, just awesome! Everyone seems mellow, even the homeless werent drunk or rowdy and thats for a reason. I went with the 'room tip' and ended up in rm 631 in the corner away from everything noisy, absolutely peaceful and clean with a great view of the beach and city. I'm a camper so i didn't know the packed mini bar wasnt free?? omg, anyway, it was worth it for me! And rode my rented bike AT NIGHT from Venice Boardwalk to Santa Monica Boardwalk. 98% of the Staff was very friendly and accommodating! Enjoyed both the rooftop, restaurant and island bar. I even got my 'Groove On' with a Hottie Aussie staying there half my age:)! The place was full of Cubs trying to make this Cougar purr!

Room Tip: Room 631 is away from everything noisy but close to stairs or elevator and great view of city & beach!

Thank you for the awesome review! It seems like you had a really memorable trip! Our hotel is right in the center of all the Venice Beach action so we’re happy to hear you were able to explore via bicycle AND get your groove on with a hottie cub. We hope you’ll come back and pay us a visit next time you’re in the neighborhood!

Wishing you all the best,
Team Erwin

We didn't stay here but we were told to go and experience the rooftop bar – and we're glad we did. The views are stunning, even better as the sun goes down. I'd recommend booking a table in advance to avoid disappointment.

The hotel seemed pretty good too, nice relaxed atmosphere.

Definitely worth checking out.

Great Hotel in Venice. Great view from the sky lounge at the roof top. Very good service. A special thanx to Miguel, who made it possible to check the weight of our suitcases. Perfect place to go to Santa Monica or Malibu by bike. We'll be back.

Thank you so much for writing a review about your stay. You’re absolutely right about Venice Beach being eclectic! There’s never a dull moment and the boardwalk has some of the best people watching you’ll find in California! We hope you had a lovely journey home. We’ll see you soon!
