Early on, this competition had four strong competitors out of five, but it came down to a showdown between Hotel Erwin and Casa del Mar in the last week, with Hotel Erwin pulling off a decisive win for Favorite Los Angeles Beach Hotel in the end.

Joie de Vivre opened the Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach in 2009, taking over and renovating an older ocean-front property. They're currently in the midst of additional upgrades scheduled to be finished summer 2012.

Hotel Erwin's quirky beach-chic decor reflects it's location near Muscle Beach and the Venice Beach Boardwalk.

A few quotes from readers who nominated the Hotel Erwin:

"200 feet from the sand, in the heart of the circus that is Venice Beach."

"This was a great location to stay with my family and the front desk staff were super helpful in helping us plan our activities."
