Hotel Erwin Review

Formerly a Best Western, this now bonafide boutique hotel just off the Venice Beach boardwalk has a happening rooftop bar and lounge, appropriately named High, that even attracts locals (weather permitting). Splashes of orange and yellow add playfulness to already spacious, airy rooms. Request a room on the sixth floor, which was built during renovation. From the lobby-level-adjacent, club-sized eatery Barlo Kitchen + Cocktails to the small-bites menu at the rooftop bar, food is made from scratch and emphasizes fresh ingredients. In keeping with Joie de Vivre properties throughout California, staff is friendly and helpful.

    Hotel Erwin Review

    I didn't stay at the hotel; I went there to watch the sunset over the ocean. The view is FANTASTIC! The layout is very intimate; they have a very appealing drink menu (I was thrilled they had Old Rasputin, which is one of my absolute favorites). The staff is wonderfully friendly: Lisette, who was just coming off her shift, took the time to take me up to the roof and give me a quick 411 on the amenities; Rob, the bouncer, was a great conversationalist and made me feel like I was at my neighborhood local for a beer. I'll be stopping by here from now on every time I come out to the beach
