Hotel is right in the heart of Venice which is definitely super trendy and a little rough around the edges. It's a fun spot though with great restaurants and a cool vibe. Being a New Yorker I'm not too bothered by the homeless and some of the eccentric types around, but if that's something that you aren't used to you...

Relatively small room on the all-new sixth floor was wonderfully and hip-ly appointed. Steel and glass hip balcony had a (off to the left) side view of the ocean. Seconds from Venice beach. Very clean. Comfortable bed, but a bit too small at queen size only. Par for the California course on the hip price I suppose. Barlo downstairs and...

Great stay at the Erwin. Spacious rooms, free upgrade to a suite with full kitchenette and balcony. Very boutiquey. Amazing rooftop bar with great views over LA and the beach.

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.
