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.

We had a great welcome from the reception team after a long drive. Quickly got to the room which had a side sea view. Well appointed and a really big comfy bed. Well stocked bar and complimentary drinks delivered to the room each afternoon. The rooftop bar is sensational with a full view of the beach and sunset. One block...

Took refuge at The Hotel Erwin after escaping the cockroach-infested Hotel California just up the way in Santa Monica.

I stayed there many nights and really enjoyed it. It is right on the beach, it is one of my favorite hotels. It also has a great rooftop bar to grab a drink and relax. The bar has a gorgeous view. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Venice Beach.

We debated about staying right on the boardwalk in a less luxurious hotel or back a tiny bit and a little more posh. In the end we chose a little distance and more upgrades, and I'm glad we did. We loved the Erwin! It's only a 1 minute walk from the Venice boardwalk, but with that little buffer comes just...

Stayed here early October 2014. We upgraded for $50 to a suite which was spacious, clean and funky. Very comfortable bed and no road noise even though we faced a busy side street. Staff were friendly and helpful. Roof top bar is a winner to experience those wonderful sunsets. Would definitely stay here again.

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.
