About Hotel Erwin, Venice

Oceanfront beach retreat with guest-approved dining

Steps from the beach
Hotel Erwin is the only beachfront hotel on Venice Beach. You can enjoy sea breezes and Pacific views from your guestroom's private balcony, and a savvy staff helps you navigate sights, like downtown Santa Monica, 2 miles north.

Sand, skates, and shops
Right downstairs, Venice Beach boardwalk, with its colorful street performers and shops, is a must-see. Beyond it, Muscle Beach and Venice Skatepark await. If you prefer high-end shopping to sandcastles, the Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Place are 2 miles north.

A rooftop retreat
Guests rave about Barlo Kitchen + Cocktails, which serves breakfast and dinner. For a more casual vibe, you can pop up to the open-air High Rooftop Lounge, overlooking the Pacific. To help you catch up on work and workouts, the business center is always open. Host your next meeting in one of multiple meeting spaces.

Private bedroom balconies
Contemporary guestrooms feature retro-chic furnishings and eclectic local art, as well as private balconies with Pacific views. Entertainment options include iPod® docking stations and high-definition TVs with on-demand music and games. Free WiFi is available.

Fantastic hotel in the heart of Venice
Hotel Erwin was AMAZING! I cannot recommend this place enough. The staff and customer service was above and beyond what I could have expected and the location was perfect in the heart of Venice Beach and walking distance or a cheap Uber ride to fantastic attractions, restaurants and things to do. An added and unexpected bonus of this hotel was the provided shampoo and conditioner. Seriously, my hair has never looked better! I have just ordered the hair products online, Hotel Erwin has completely stepped up my hair game.

Good character & location; some downsides for us
Hubby and I came for a weekend getaway. Comfortable bed and cutely remodeled hotel. Ocean room view was adjacent to parking lot between the hotel and the beach, but had a nice little patio. Noises easily penetrated the room walls -- TV from the room next door (in our case, around 5am which woke us), garbage truck backup beep in the early morning (in the parking lot), person walking on the floor of the room above us, etc. Some odors in the building from construction and outdoor sources such as a nearby dispensary. Hotel had a lot of character and good service. Lots of younger, stylish people going to have fun at the roof top bar. Free bike rentals were a nice touch. Great proximity to all the action on the water front area. We personally would not stay here again, instead seeking something a bit more plush, quieter, and low-key.
