Friendly, Clean and Modern

Superb location steps away from the legendary Venice Beach. Consistently warm and efficient service - thank you Miguel, Jillian and the cool guy from Maine!
Complimentary day passes to nearby Gold’s Gym. It’s the kind of hotel where you immediately know you’ve made the right choice.

Great Service!

I showed up really late for my reservation but was pleasantly surprised by a full welcoming staff. Awesome service. Room had a terrific view and was super clean. Roof top was fun with great service. Highly recommend!

Hip but Friendly, Awesome Location, Great Value

Over the years, I have been fortunate to stay in more than 30 top hotels in the Los Angeles area. I was skeptical when I saw the Hotel Erwin’s ranking as higher than the Four Seasons, Peninsula and other 5 star properties. After spending an awesome weekend at the Erwin, I checked out a believer. It’s a great blend of location, service and value that makes it difficult to beat.
