We had to take an unplanned vacation in LA while we waited for the snow and ice to clear up back home. We were on the 5th floor with a great view of the beach. Room amenities were good: bathrobes, room fridge, coffee maker, good shower, and room was very clean. Miguel provided us with bikes and helmets to enjoy the boardwalk and great recommendations on restaurants and things to do. Great experience!

You can ask any LA-local about Erwin and they'll tell you about the crazy times they had at their iconic rooftop bar. Trust them ;) and it gets even better when you stay the night. Even during COVID times, this doesn't get much better than this: Hotel Erwin has the relaxed vibe of Venice Beach all over it, topped with amazing service by Miguel, Brooke, Boswell, and the others on the team. They remember their guests by name, address any concern, and are committed to a great experience and to everyone leaving with a smile. From offering fresh coffee in the morning, to offering room change when possible, to helping me figure out how to work out safely - they made my work trip to LA one to remember. Thank you for setting such a high bar - I'm sure to be back!

Just returned from 3-night weekend trip. Hotel was clean and reception staff were nice. Free use of beach towels and bikes was a great touch but perhaps the daily $21 "facility fee" paid for this as there are no other facilities there you can use. One elevator for 6 flight hotel was not ideal with Covid but easy to get up and down with stairs or just wait. Highlight of the hotel is the location - close to beach. Two negatives for me - (1) parking ($42) is absurd for a hotel of this size. You can park directly across the street at a lot for $30/night or self park on the street for free if you feel comfortable looking for spots each night. I would be smart about what you leave in the car as in any major city. Second was the hotel crowd. Perhaps due to Valentines Day or holiday weekend, but it was definitely a younger, party vibe crowd with a line outside to get to the roof bar (which was very nice but clearly crowded with non-hotel guests). I don't recommend the hotel for young families unless you just care about walking to beach and don't mind some noise if staying on the weekend.

I just want to say that this is a great place to stay close to everything. Miguel at reception was the kindest person ever and the room was clean and the bed was a cloud. I would stay here again, definitely!

We stayed two different times for a one night celebration of my daughters' birthdays. Our room was gorgeous! King sized bed in a separate room and a HUGE living room with large comfortable couches and a pull out full sized hide-a-bed. There's also a desk area and a dinning table with 4 chairs. Very comfortable place with COVID when we mostly want to stay in. Great for my kids who like to be able to have their own space. The true star of this place is the staff. So sweet and accommodating. Really go out of their way to be helpful and generous. They don't wait for you to ask - they offer! I only caught the name of one worker - Miguel - but we were helped by four different front desks clerks and each outshone the last. Really amazing customer service!
