About This Job

At Hotel Erwin, we give our guests an unmistakably Venice Beach experience. From the unpretentious style of our rooms and event spaces, Hotel Erwin captures a unique aesthetic that sets the scene for any occasion. Absorb the area’s rich history through the work of local artists, like Larry Bell, lining the hallways. Enjoy drinks with panoramic ocean views at High Lounge — the only rooftop bar in Venice — and low-key dining at Barlo, with dishes crafted from the finest local ingredients. We not only put our guests right next to the beach, but in close proximity to the best shops, restaurants and attractions Venice has to offer. As part of the neighborhood for decades, we take pride in creating unforgettable Venice Beach experiences for all who step through our doors.
