The Hotel Erwin is located in the heart of world famous Venice Beach. Only steps away from the boardwalk and the sandy beaches of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation that has added a floor of Premier rooms, a sundeck offering panoramic views of the beach and all of LA, and completely renovated the existing floors. The corridors and rooms feature the vibrant artwork of world famous Venice artists. Venice has gone through significant revitalization having brought scores of great restaurants, boutiques, and art studios. Even the movie stars are moving in: Dennis Hopper, Anjelica Houston, Nicolas Cage, and Julia Roberts reside in this bohemian community. Some of L.A.'s most innovative and interesting architecture lines always entertaining Main Street. But without question, Venice Beach is best known for its Ocean Front Walk, a nonstop Mardi Gras of vendors, street performers, and visitors of all ages.


Parking is $30 per night. Valet parking only.

Christmas vacation

The hotel was great, bed was comfortable and we had delicious coffee in our room each morning. The room was spacious and there was a small view of the ocean even though we stayed in a basic King bedroom. I enjoyed the roof top bar and the breakfast too.

Solid Couples Getaway Vacation

Nice boutique hotel in Venice Beach at a great holiday rate during Thanksgiving vacation. The location is away from all the major commercial hotels and just minutes away from great shops, the beach boardwalk, restaurants and right next to Santa Monica. The staff was really friendly and helpful and made us feel welcomed the minute I checked in. The rooftop bar they have is Awesome!! I definitely recommend checking that out. The only minor negative thing was that the rooms are kind of small and we didn't have the best view even though they put us on the 5th floor. Our view was the back of some building next to us with graffiti art on it with a slight view of the ocean. Overall, still a great hotel for the value and location, staff and the restaurant they have attached to the hotel has great food and drinks as well.

At the heart of Venice beach

Hotel Erwin sits less than a block away from busy Venice Beach. It's a contemporary style hotel with a rooftop bar. The lobby staff was very pleasant and efficient at checking me in, and room was quite comfortable. It had a plush king size bed and a modern, glass-enclosed shower. One negative was the sliding bathroom door, which made your private business a little too public. Another privacy issue was the sound coming from the hallway. I could clearly hear peoples conversations as they passed by. Late at night my wife listened to an inebriated man stumbling into his room followed by him shouting out his window. I also thought it was a little odd having the only elevator in the middle of the ground floor parking garage, rather than near the entrance.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Not only is Venice Beach a few steps away, but the Venice canals are located a few blocks south of the hotel.

Checking out the west coast

The hotel was located near all beach activities. The staff was so friendly and helpful . We felt very safe during our stay. We also met people from all over the world there. The hotel also has a roof top entertaining area that has a beautiful view of the Venice, Santa Monica, Del ray area. We will be back!!

funky and cool

I stayed here with 3 teenage girls who loved the location and the vibe of the hotel. Lots of activity in Venice Beach outside your door. The rooftop is not to be missed.
