Since the moment I arrived all the staff was really nice and helpful. The room was neat and comfortable and the hotel in general was really cool. +The food wasn't bad at all, really good breakfast, sadly I could not try the lunch.

Luciano, Happy to read that you had an enjoyable stay and enjoyed breakfast. Just to clarify we are not open for lunch. On Saturday and Sunday we do serve breakfast until 1 PM, but Barlo is only open for Breakfast and Dinner. There are plenty of dining options near the hotel that are open for lunch. We hope to see...

The Erwin is centrally located, overlooking Venice Beach, and is the perfect place to deal with your jet lag. The staff are friendly and competent, the rooms tastefully if idiosyncratically decorated, and the overall atmosphere charming. There's a rooftop bar overlooking the Pacific, and a breakfast room on the ground floor serving high-quality American cuisine. Minor niggle - the fridge...

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...

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.
