"Great beach location"
My husband and I spent three nights and enjoyed the location, services, and amenities provided at the Erwin. We loved the location to the beach, nearby restaurants, the historic canals and shopping. Miguel and Camily at the front desk gave fantastic service and were such welcoming faces to see each morning and afternoon. We also enjoyed the restaurants at the hotel; breakfast was delicious and the roof top deck gave such an amazing 360 degree view of Venice Beach. The hotel bikes were fun to have at our disposal and we loved taking them out after breakfast on the gorgeous beach path that went on for miles. We will definitely be back!
I was turning 45 years old & we decided to take a quick trip to Venice Beach to celebrate. The was also going to be our 1st out of town trip alone together without the kids since our youngest was diagnosed with a chronic medical condition in 2012, so this was a very much needed mini vacation for us. Hotel Erwin is just steps away from Muscle Beach & all the action of Venice Beach, yet in a safe spot, & not to worry...valet parking is in a secured garage. The first thing we noticed was the young looking staff. Truth be told, I was a bit concerned. However, I was not prepared for the level of professionalism we would encounter throughout our quick overnight stay. From the first person (valet/door) staff to the last (front desk), everyone at Hotel Erwin was absolutely amazing & beyond helpful. We arrived a lot earlier than expected. Kristen (front desk) took our contact info & once our room was ready, we would be notified. We decided to go to the top floor and check out High (the only rooftop bar/lounge in Venice). A nice chance to grab a bite/drink & kill some time.Hubby ordered chicken tacos (plain, like he likes it) & I opted for the hummus plate (hummus, feta cheese, olives, & pita). So yummy & a good portion. The views of Venice Beach was breathtaking. The wait staff were super friendly. Kristen called to let us know our room was ready around 130pmish (3pm is usual check in time). The room was adorable & very clean. The snack bar/drink bar was filled with all kinds of yummy things for adults & kids. Good thing our kiddos weren't with us...lol. Once we settled in, we got our complimentary Gold's Gym passes & ran there to get a workout in (0.6 miles). Later in the day, while we were relaxing in the room, there was a knock on the door. It was Camila (front desk) & she had brought up a very sweet birthday card & bottle of wine from the hotel as a birthday gift. Such a thoughtful thing. Later, we decided on dinner at the restaurant in the hotel. Barlo Kitchen & Cocktails. The food was incredible!!!! I had roasted chicken with veggies & hubby had salmon with roasted brussel sprouts on top of some kind of sweet potato mash. The next day, we slept in & had a quick run along the beach. We had plenty of time to grab breakfast, clean up, & check out before 12noon. Checkout was a breeze. We will definitely be back....with & without the kids. We didn't get everyone's name, but we would like to Thank Kristen, Camila, George, & everyone we came across for such a memorable stay. It's no wonder Hotel Erwin is the top hotel on TripAdvisor.
"Already planning our next visit"
Can't thank these guys enough for a fantastic stay! Our room was so pleasant and it doesn't hurt that its decorated in really cool mid century mod style which I adore! It felt like home. While we didn't party at the rooftop we did get a glimpse of the view! Breathtaking! The staff at the Erwin is very professional. Christine and Camila where so incredibly accommodating and sweet. Over all amazing stay and we will return! Only request: get smaller bikes for short guest :)
We stayed here for two nights, and everything here was top notch. The room was ginormous, the beds were comfortable (the pull out sofa even!), the breakfast was delicious, and the service was great as well. Shoutout to Miguel and Kristen at the desk! Everybody was so helpful, and I would no doubt stay here again. Did I mention the rooftop view'
"Over the top AMAZING"
Camila, Jennifer, Miguel, and Keenan are the most wonderful and attentive people you ever want to meet. I'm sorry Camila if I misspelled your name. I recommend Hotel Erwin to anyone who wants to stay in Venice Beach CA. Without the people I mentioned and many others, our trip would have been great, but they made it amazing for us. WOW. I don't know when, but I will return to Hotel Erwin. The location is spot on right in the middle of everything. We rocked the Rooftop Lounge and experienced superb sunsets. I love this place.
