Between Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey, you will find Hotel Erwin in the whirling street carnival that is Venice Beach, a storied enclave of rock-n-roll, bohemian-cool, surfing and skateboarding. A mere 200-feet from the sand and overlooking the famous boardwalk, you are at the epicenter of creative rebellion, Southern California-style. The location is perfect for romantic walks among the galleries and Venice Canals.

This boutique hotel from the Joie De Vivre family of properties counts on 19 guestrooms, including 38 one-bedroom suites featuring a king-size bed, queen-size sofa bed, wet bar and fireplace with many of the rooms featuring balconies with views of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel is decorated with unique modern art from local artists throughout the hotel.

Hash, a café style restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating, presents a menu of vibrant flavors specializing in down-home breakfasts and fresh from-the-market dinners. The wide variety of fresh, seasonal specialties comprised of hashes, hearty buckwheat pancakes, omelets and creative benedicts are all served in an artsy beach-front café setting.

To end your day and begin the night, High is the premiere Venice Beach open-air lounge, where the nightly sunset is the main event. High takes full advantage of its outdoor rooftop location and delivers breathtaking, 360 degree views of the city, from famed Muscle Beach to the Hollywood Sign and Downtown Los Angeles.

Part art gallery, part beach house, and a perfect people-watching perch, Hotel Erwin is the perfect ESCAPADITA.
