I stayed at the Hotel Erwin in June 2014 in a King Suite with Ocean view. separate bedroom, pull out bed in living room, full kitchen. Let's put this review in context:
Hotel room itself- 3 star. Interiors are clean, but spartan. Style is mod-hipster-playful. If you don't expect this, it can be off putting. Reality was fine: beds were comfortable, furnishings were comfortable, bath was very nicely appointed, spacious. Good views of ocean and Venice Boardwalk
Location: THIS IS why you pick this hotel. It provides immediate local access to all of the crazy fun energy of Venice Boardwalk, two block walk up to Abbot Kinney and all the great dining and bars and boutiques there.
Amenities-Dining: I dont know why if you came here, you wouldn't go up to Abbot Kinney to eat and drink, but if you do eat in, the Hightop roof bar is one of a kind, and pretty comfortable and enjoyable! And BARLO on first floor is great, small, but great food.
All in all, I can't give it 4 stars or more, because we all know "great 4 star" hotels are more finely appointed, come with more VIP services and amenities, and at about or less than this price----but it's a solid 3 star hotel, with a 4 star level of hip cool beach chic accessibility to an amazingly energized part of LA.
IF this is what you're looking for---you'll enjoy!!
