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.


Valet parking available.

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.

super nice staff

the hotel was awesome. the staff was so helpful with offering suggestions on places to go. the doormen/valet couldn't have been nicer. it was like a hop, skip and a jump to the beach,which was my main reason for staying there. the high and hash restaurants were both very nice however the food was a bit small for the price, but it did taste good. i think the only real dislike i had was the bathroom door. it was a glass sliding door and it was very loud for middle of the night potty trips.

Hotel Erwin Venice,CA

The staff here are super friendly, and very helpful. Just be aware of the "Extra" charges. Like parking, no continental breakfast. I stayed in a king suite, which had ample space and was nicely appointed. I did find the area around the hotel a little sketchy, and it was quite noisy for me, as I'm a light sleeper. However, it is only steps from Venice Beach, and only a short drive to Santa Monica.

Great location to experience Venice Beac

Hotel was under renovatios but appeared to be headed in a direction that would enhance another stay in the area... It was a short walk to the beach area and some quaint shops and restaurants that the locals frequented ... For a first visit it was a good experience..

They charge $15 a day for parking!

The view sucked, the room was worth about half what we paided for it. There was supposed to be a complimentary breakfast, none. To top it off there is no parking, you have to pay $15 a day for the parking service. Oh, I almost forgot they didn't clean our room until 4:30 PM when we got back to relax, so we had to pass on that. One more thing the room phone didn't work. I complainted twice but I guess they had to handle other problems. I guess some fokes have a lower standard then me. Really you should pass on this place.
