We can’t thank you for being our home away from home! We will be back – they loved the food (so yummy) and you all made us feel so welcome! We love how authentic you all are!

This weekend was epic. Thank (from all of us) the front desk people, we were a handful. We know it. High was beautiful… We want to do more events like this and will definitely be back. Venice did not disappoint!

Everyone did a great job! Everything was perfect. It couldn’t have been better. Steven the bartender went above and beyond, and the managers were awesome! The cake was gorgeous! Thank you so much!

Just wanted to thank you all for a terrific day at Hotel Erwin. The accommodations were perfect and everyone on your staff was very helpful and pleasant. Our guests from NBC had a wonderful visit and even mentioned that they would like to come back for athlete interviews and happy hours!

This was my first stay at the Hotel Erwin, and what a great experience. The location speaks for itself, but the people make it special. I stayed here 4 nights while conducting business in the city and on the Westside, and found it very convenient. Every time I returned for the evening I was greeted by smiling, helpful and humble people. Nothing pretentious about this place at all, despite the location right in the heart of Venice beach. Rooms were clean and contemporary. Food and service at the roof restaurant/lounge was excellent. I am as impressed and I felt welcomed, and I’m just a regular guy traveling on business. I’ll be back, whether for business or family travel. Thanks, y’all

I am so passionate about Hotel Erwin. I stay here often for work and the hotel itself is fab: location, amenities, rooftop, bikes, beach towels, etc., but my favorite thing is the STAFF! They all make my day and are so kind and also funny. I look forward to being in the lobby just to run into them!

From booking, to the valet, to checking in, first class service all of the way. I found Hotel Erwin after being turned off by reviews from other 4-star hotels nearby and was excited to find that (besides the irrelevant dramatic reviews; ie: the elevator was slow on Saturday night, we had to wait for a table at High, my room key didn't work the first time) everything was exactly as pictured and described online. The room was clean, towels fluffy & soft, and the balcony doors had screens in them so we could keep them open for hours. Way to go Erwin on protecting our earth from plastic waste and using eco-friendly Byrd products and unique wood keys. Only steps or a short walk from the boardwalk, Tocaya, Belles, Great White, Eggslut, Turndough, Abbot Pizza, Co., The Tasting Kitchen and of course the only rooftop lounge in Venice on the rooftop of the Erwin at High we were truly in foodie heaven. The ocean view from the room was to die for. Erwin offers beach towels, coolers and bikes to get around and a host of other awesome amenities (we didn't have time to take them up on these). We were only a few minutes (maybe) from the edge of the water, the skate park and the pier. After a restful night's sleep on the feather bed, I never wanted to leave. We will definitely be going back to Erwin on our next escape to So Cal.

As always, Erwin is the best. We anxiously await our next time at Venice. Thank you so much for making it a seamless process. Everything was out outstanding and we very much enjoyed out stay.

Thank you for everything.
