One of Los Angeles' 10 Best Hotels TripAdvisor Logo TripAdvisor

The Hotel with a History

WE DON’T WANT TO DATE OURSELVES, but Hotel Erwin has remained a Venice Beach staple since 1975. The man behind our hotel is a local legend — though he’ll never admit it — and his vision to welcome all travelers and treat them like family still influences our hospitality today.

Here at Hotel Erwin, we give our guests an unmistakably Venice Beach experience. Our vibrant rooms and event spaces capture a unique aesthetic that sets the scene for any occasion. Not only do we put guests right next to the beach, but we’re also steps away from the area’s famed shopping, dining, and activities. When you finally return back to the hotel, there’s always a seat at our rooftop bar High Lounge or low-key dining spot Erwin's Kitchen & Cocktails.

Erwin Gives Back
