Our Hotel

Whether it's the birth of skate culture the iconic muscle beach, or just its notorious "anything-goes" attitude; Venice Beach has always been an icon of American subculture. It's a unique combination of seaside beauty, urban energy, and people who aren't afraid to express themselves.

For the past five decades, Hotel Erwin has been a window into this wonderfully weird world, welcoming travelers of every description from across the globe. From our friendly, approachable vibe to our eclectic, diverse atmosphere, find out why Hotel Erwin is still the only place to stay in Venice Beach.

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 guests finally return back to the hotel, there’s always a seat at our rooftop bar High Lounge or low-key dining spot Barlo Kitchen + Cocktails.
