“Fun place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Party in the lobby every afternoon, dogs, a cool pool, animal-print robes and slippers - AND spotlessly clean room and a quiet night's sleep. Colorful décor, excellent service (especially bellman Edin and bartender Sergio). If you need to be near Westwood this is definitely the place. My only complaint: the magnetic room key had to be replaced DAILY. And why no liquor in the minibar?

Room Tip: Rooms facing south have sweeping L.A. views

Dear GomezG,

Thanks for the kind words we really appreciate hearing how your stay went. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed yourself and am very grateful for your feedback about Sergio and Edin. Apologies for the issues with the keys, at times they can come demagnetized from being close to magnets, security scanning equipment, etc but there's no reason that should have happened every day. We'll keep an eye out for similar feedback.

Regarding the minibar we certainly do have a great selection of wines, spirits and craft beers. There's two minibar sections, one with dry goods on the dresser and then there's a minibar fridge inside the cabinet directly under the TV. You'll find everything you need there; if not, we'll run out and grab it for you! Thanks again and please come back soon.

Friendly, helpful staff set the tone at this hotel set in the "Wilshire corridor" of high-end condos (apparently Candy Spelling lives in one of the nearby blocks).

Good-sized rooms, evidently recently refurbished. Fantastic beds - huge, very comfortable, lovely cotton bed linen; you'll get a great night's sleep.

Clean rooms, although there's a slight lack of attention to detail - soap spray across the front of one of the pictures in the bathroom (I hope it was soap spray) and a broken iPod dock.

The important things are the friendly staff and the comfortable beds!

Dear Skewe Lewe,

Thanks very much, happy you enjoyed yourself! We love our wonderful location too; Westwood is one of the most popular locations in all of LA. We're just minutes from all the best attractions in the area including the beaches of Santa Monica (4 miles) Beverly Hills (2 miles) and Hollywood (9 miles). Many travelers take advantage of our property as a great jump off site. Have a great summer and we hope to see you again.

Sleek design meets plush amenities at this hotel. I've stayed at many Kimptons and this ranks up there with Vero Beach and Hotel Palomar Chicago. (Vero is number one folks - über-luxe and relaxing). You get the full SoCal experience here with mod decor, beautiful people watching and swanky service. Ideal for biz or vaca travel.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor - views are spectacular.

Very kind of you to say! Thanks as well for comparing us to Vero Beach and Palomar Chicago, that's a pretty high bar! We hope you have a wonderful summer and get a chance to come see us again when for your next SoCal experience.

My husband and I stayed at this fantastic hotel this past April and it was our first time in LA and absolutely loved it!! The staff at the Palomar are so helpful and nice, Josue specifically helped us a lot even before we arrived there and Juan at check in was so great too! The hotel is located near Beverly Hills and Westwood Village, on a major street, so it makes taking the bus very easy, if you're looking to save some money. But the hotel also offers a shuttle car, to drop you off within a certain distance, but it made it easier to get around to certain places. The hotel itself is very beautiful and clean, cool and comfortable, the restaurant is very nice and the food is delicious...great service all around!! I can't express enough how much we loved this hotel and the experience of a lifetime we had, we hope to see you again Palomar LA, we miss you!!! :)

Within walking distance of UCLA and Westwood. Nice staff, clean rooms. Common areas lacked charm. Everything seemed tired. Staff was great with directions, maps, valet guys were wonderful. So, wonderful staff, just seemed like any building anywhere.

Dear NRMomof4,

Thanks very much for the feedback about our team, although do take seriously your comments about the building. We've got several improvements in the works this year including refreshes of our exterior design and gym. We hope to continue that work through the upcoming year including a renovation of our public spaces. Stay tuned, we hope to bring you a brand new lobby soon!

Just stayed 4 nights at the Palomar Westwood and was so impressed with everything and everybody.....its hip vibe, the gorgeous young staff, the Restaurant and Bar, etc. It really made my stay in LA an even more fun experience. Everyone at the front desk was so helpful in every way and went the extra distance to make sure all my needs were met.
The rooms are super comfortable with lovely bathroom amenities and great robes! The in-room snacks, teas, and beverages are the best I've seen in a hotel anywhere in the world. I was also quite impressed by their even having a "blister pack" handy right when I really needed one.
The location is ideal for getting anywhere....close to Beverly Hills, Sunset Strip, or west to Brentwood and Malibu. It was an easy walk to the Avis rent a car place on Westwood Blvd.
There's coffee and tea served in the lobby in the mornings...and complimentary wine in the afternoons...and always lots of water available at any time.
It was so much fun just sitting in the lobby "dog watching" more than people watching. It's so cool that this hotel is so dog friendly, with a water bowl at the entrance. What a lovely thing for guests to be able to travel with their dogs in such nice digs.
I even grabbed a chance to have some down time at the pool..comfortable lounges in a peaceful spot, in the heart of the town. They even have a handicapped chair lift into the water. Next time I will make time to take advantage of the gym, too.
I was also impressed by the questionnaire to fill out prior to my stay....including asking for my pillow preferences....that was a first! And...the letter I received afterwards, asking for any suggestions or comments to improve their service or facilities. All I can say is that I had a great time in a great hotel with a fantastic staff completely at my service. From now on, this will be my place to stay in LA.

Room Tip: My room was on the 8th floor, overlooking Wilshire Blvd, but if you prefer to have a spectacular vie...

Dear MilkmaidTS,

Thank you for your wonderful review! It was very rewarding to read your acknowledgement of our look and design as well as our great wine hour. However it was your words about our staff that I enjoyed the most. They're a wonderful group of people and anytime that it's recognized it refuels their desire to assist the next group of guests. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loyalty and patronage and we hope to see you soon!

We spent three nights over the holiday weekend and enjoyed the complimentary coffee bar in the a.m., the location, and the view. We fortunately had a parking spot nearby otherwise the overnight fee adds up. Loved the view from our room - west l.a. And in the distance the Pacific Ocean. But, the flush on the toilet was so loud - it's frightening. Gotta get it fixed! Or better yet, replaced.

Room Tip: Nice view from upper floor. South side was quiet.

Dear MSBWashingtonDC,

Thanks for the feedback about your stay with us, we really appreciate the feedback. While I was happy to read your comments about our wonderful AM coffee service and great views of Westwood I did want to apologize for the impact the bathroom noise had for you. Our toilets are very water efficient. We do appreciate that aspect of them but will make sure that they're regularly maintained to ensure there's not too much noise coming from them. Thanks again and I do hope you make it back soon.
