This place has the style of a boutique style hotel without having or paying for all the high end finishes. The staff were welcoming and fun, the front desk has a little sign that says 'Hi, My name is _ _ _ _ and I feel rebellious when...". I loved that friendliness with some personality. This is a great place...

Fun, funky hotel in the heart of Venice Beach. Our room had an unbeatable view north up to the Palisades and a balcony that we could sit out on to enjoy that view! It was fun to watch the beach come to life in the morning and see how quickly it became full of people. The hotel has a surf/skateboard...

The Hotel Erwin is a wonderful property - it's unpretentious & California cool...the staff is incredibly nice, and the view from the lounge is breathtaking. I felt like I could just "be me" there. Neither the hotel nor the staff are trying to be overly "cool", which I appreciated. They are just their authentic, so-cal selves, and they all totally...

Fell in love with the roof top bar/patio and the view. I don't think you could have found a better place on the strip to come "home" to. The room was clean, modern, full amenities, absolutely no concerns. The staff was friendly, helpful, and ensured that you felt safe and secure while in the hotel (had heard some negative reviews...

Erwin has a great staff--valet, check-in, waiters. That is a good start. It is right off the Venice boardwalk, but quiet enough to not be bothered with much noise and nonsense. Rooms have views off of the sides of the hotel, not forward toward the beach but the the beach is so vast it doesn't make much difference. Plenty of...

We had a really fun night here, the roof top bar has amazing views and our room was lovely. There were lots of great little details in the interior design but it wasn't a huge room. Good for a couple of nights though. It has an absolutely perfect location for the beach and exploring Abbott Kinney too.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood 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.
