We Take You on Location - Production at Hotel Erwin

Capture the energy and essence of Venice Beach at our historic, eclectic but contemporary hotel – the only hotel on Venice Beach. With the addition of our Rooftop, we have a wide range of spaces with varying looks to support your vision.  Our flexible spaces are an ideal setting for film, television, photography shoots, along with being a key location for content creation.
 
We offer a beachfront location with breathtaking views of the city of Los Angeles as well as signature indoor spaces that make for creative alternatives to the standard hotel or event space. We can be your HQ for any production that’s taking place in LA, with easy access to LAX & Hawthorne Airport and can be completely YOURS if you need us (ask about buyouts or branding opportunities as well!)
