About Hotel Erwin

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.

Hotel Erwin
Very Good8.0
Great hotel well located, a little bit annoying that l the roof terrace was rented out for private parties, this meaning guests had restricted access one night and no access for 2 of my 3 night stay.

Hotel Erwin
Best in Venice
Erwin is a great place to stay if Venice is your chosen area. Direct on the beach , with a lot of people and activity around the corner, a mix of hippie time and chick. Erwin has a wonderful and very busy roof terrace bar with great sunset and drinks. Rooms are lovely modern and bright with balconies. Targeted for the younger adults this is still a great place to stay also for grownups! Breakfast is lovely and the tiny restaurant Barlo is probably the best in Venice! Bikes for free.
