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, find your way up to the roof where High Lounge will have your perfect social media backdrop... or grab a slice and a beer and watch the vibe of Venice on our low-key patio for Venice Way Pizza.
