We had a great stay at the Hotel Erwin in January 2014. every employee was kind and polite and super helpful! the hotel itself was very clean, and the vibe is sort of funky-cool-upscale-beach. for some reason we never made it up to the rooftop bar - but we could catch some of the awesome view from our room, id...

Funky hotel in a great spot a 30 second walk to Venice beach. Rooms very clean & modern. Bed very comfy. Wonderful rooftop bar - though designed to create seclusion via booths, where I'd rather open & interactive to create atmosphere. Good for couples and groups of friends that want privacy & a nice view over the beach. Staff at...

My husband, college-aged son and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Erwin. We had a two-room suite facing the beach and had great time. The staff was pleasant and very responsive (we needed more towels), especially the valets, who were extremely swift and efficient. The only reason I'm not rating it "excellent" is because of short-comings in the...

They mislead you about parking and management has no clue about customer service. I would never stay at this hotel and should have stayed at the JW Marriott which was less expensive and they know how to treat their guests.

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.
