Vibrant, artistic, a visual feast, Venice Beach is a scene and a vibe that barely needs introduction. Perched amid it all with a prime beachfront view, you’ll find Hotel ERWIN, an eclectic, funky, hotspot that’s been attracting locals, out-of-towners, and SoCal day trippers ever since it opened its doors decades ago.

There’s much to love about Hotel ERWIN, so it’s no surprise the property is the recipient of a Trip Advisor Traveler Choice award for 2022 and a certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor as well. In addition to its stellar, heart-of-the-action location, Hotel Erwin has a longstanding commitment to protecting the environment and supporting the community it calls home. It’s a way of life at Hotel ERWIN that dates to 1975 and includes participating in community action events, supporting local causes, and implementing a long list of in-house eco-initiatives —from serving boxed water throughout the hotel rather than plastic bottles to using paper products in guest areas that are made from recycled materials.
