(VENICE, CA – April 8, 2019) Hotel Erwin, the quintessential boutique hotel in Venice Beach, California, today announced the appointment of new, dynamic leader, Derek Haug as General Manager, to oversee all hotel operations and management.

Mr. Haug comes to Hotel Erwin with more than 20 years of hospitality experience and a well-rounded understanding of all facets of hotel management. Most recently, Derek held leadership roles with Loews Hotels for the past twelve years and comes to Hotel Erwin from Loews Santa Monica Beach. There he oversaw all food, beverage, conference, catering and spa operations for the resort, creating and launching new restaurant and bar concepts. He has more than six years of experience in Southern California in addition to hospitality experience in Tucson, Arizona, Snowmass Village, Colorado. Derek holds a degree in hospitality management from the University of Minnesota.

With his extensive knowledge and experience with lifestyle brands and resorts, Derek is a great asset to Hotel Erwin’s dedicated team of associates as they undergo concept changes and renovations to the unique property with unparalleled rooftop and signature restaurant. Derek strives to continue to provide guests with a memorable Venice experience and uphold the standards of excellence and effortless Venice beach culture Erwin himself has infused into the hotel.

“Hotel Erwin never gives the ‘normal’ experience. I am excited to join a team who truly embodies the colorful culture of Venice Beach. A team who is pushing the boundaries of what we can do to make a guest’s experience above the ordinary,” Derek said. “It’s evident that the dedicated team at Hotel Erwin takes pride in the mission and values of the culture ownership has created.”

About Hotel Erwin

Never normal. Always Venice. In 1975, Erwin Sokol created not only a fixture of the neighborhood, but an embodiment of Venice itself. Today, backed by the Venice Boardwalk, Muscle Beach, the Venice Canals, Rose Avenue dining experiences and the celebrated shopping of Abbot Kinney, Hotel Erwin is the choice for surf culture icons, interested business travelers, and families looking for an authentic and exciting Los Angeles experience. Remodeled in 2017 by Co-Mingle’s Sally Breer, each of its 33 suites and 86 guest rooms recall a 70’s bohemian vibe while bringing a modern sensibility to the hotel. 
 
For prime views and rooftop fun, Hotel Erwin’s High Rooftop Lounge has no rival on the Westside, and the hotel’s first floor restaurant Erwin’s Kitchen + Cocktails offers a menu of locally inspired dishes. Larry's Loft, named after art icon Larry Bell, provides ideal space for business meetings, movie screenings, and modern cocktail receptions, while the Red Bull Dogtown Suite hosts a branded DJ booth, murphy bed, branded balcony and signature art.
