“Excellent hotel close to everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Customer service is outstanding and the rooms are fabulous. We had a king suite with a view on LA...unbelievable. A bit pricy with the valet parking and the feeling of having to tip every time you want your car, but then again, it is LA and parking is crap. Loved the free cocktails every evening. Clean rooms, friendly staff, great location. What more could you want?

Holly L,

So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and we couldn’t have said it better about the service our staff provides. The views from the hotel are fabulous with many great areas a short commute away, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, to name a few. Since everyone in Los Angeles is in love with their car, it does make parking a challenge. Glad you were able to join us for our evening social hour, who doesn’t love free wine and our summer punch. Have a great summer and see you again in LA.

Thank You
Robert Cole

I stayed here for 3 or so nights in early January.

We has hired a car and found the valet at Palomar very efficient. It was reasonably priced too.

The staff were very helpful at check in, providing maps etc and asking about Australia.

The room was great. Nice and large - plenty of room for our many suitcases and the piles of shopping we did at the outlets.

We had dinner in the restaurant one evening - it was very nice and again, the service great.

While out of the main tourist areas of LA, it is a good location. It's a short walk to the Westwood village, where there are many places to eat and a movie theatre. It's close to the Avis outlet where we picked up our hire car too.

The Kimpton group hotels didn't disappoint on our trip. Had we known they were that good, we would have stayed in them at every city we visited!

WorksOnly2Travel,
Thanks for the comments, we do appreciate it. Thank you for the kind words about the hotel and especially our staff, we love them too. Westwood Village is one of the many great neighborhoods a short distance from our front doors. Glad you were able to take advantage of all the great shopping in the area, hopefully, you got everything to fit into your suitcase for the trip home. We wish you could have stayed at our sister properties on your trip, maybe next time. Have a great summer and we look forward to your future visits.

Thank You

Nice hotel great location on very busy street. I got room on 12th floor with beautiful view. It was amazing. Room were really clean and I loved the fact every room has yoga mat and free yoga Chanel so u can workout in your room. I honestly proffered going to the gym because the view is on Wilshire blvd.

Only one thing I didn't like about this hotel was that people who work there are snobby that's big minus for me. Little smile never hurt anybody

I'm saying YES to this place!

Veronica D,

Glad you enjoyed your visit and we agree the views are great. The yoga mats are a well received addition, as many guests enjoy working out but hate carrying a yoga mat on the plane. The fitness center view of Wilshire and the UCLA campus make working out more enjoyable. Sorry the staff was not on their “A” game during your stay, we will be sure to turn the frowns upside down. Have a great summer and we will see you in the future.

Thank You

We stayed at the Palomar for just one night for a wedding in LA. Our room was quite small but nicely decorated and contemporary. We did not use any of the facilities. I had planned to use the gym, but didn't have time. They only have valet parking, no self parking, and the valet cost $40 a night, which I thought was very high, but after asking around, that is normal in LA. The Palomar is on wilshire Boulevard, amongst other high rise apartments and hotels. There did not appear to be any shops or cafes within walking distance, but I maybe wrong. We took a cab to the Grove for shopping and then a cab to the hotel where the wedding was held so we did not get a chance to walk around the neighborhood.
I got a very good deal on this hotel, via their website, on a special 48 hour sale, which is why I chose it. If I stay in Los Angeles again I will most likely stay here again.

Mercedesbenz,
Glad you were able to visit us and hopefully next time you can enjoy the full hotel (pool, gym and my personal favorite wine hour). The Grove is a great shopping area just down the street and we also have the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica not too far. We also have Westwood village with many small shops and restaurants, which is walking distance from the hotel. Enjoy your summer and we look forward to seeing you again.
Thank You

We only stayed 2 nights here and while it was nice, it wasn't amazing. We had a double room and it was very small with little space for our suitcases so they ended up in the hallway by the bathroom and on top of the sofa. The bathroom seemed a little dated with a small vanity and a shower over the bath. The beds were lovely and comfortable so we slept well. The animal print robes were comfy too.
We encountered some lovely staff while others seemed ambivalent regarding service. The lighting in the restaurant for breakfast was extremely dim which is fine at night, but not so appropriate in the mornings. It was in a good location and an easy drive from the airport. So while we didn't have a bad experience, I don't know that I would rush back.

Ppppaulau,
Thank you for the feedback from your visit. Though we are glad parts of your stay lived up to our Kimpton expectation (robes, beds and some of the staff) we are sorry that others fell short. We’ve got several improvements in the works this year, including the restaurant. Stay tune for updates as we try to refresh the product in the coming year. Have a great summer and we look to showing off our refresh.

Thank You

Nothing but great things to say about this hotel. Very good location in a nice area of LA. Absolutely brilliant staff and a very good restaurant which never let us down whenever we got food. We got a lovely bottle of sparkling wine for our honeymoon too which was a lovely touch. Would recommend to anyone.

I am a huge Kimpton fan. So far I've stayed at several of their CA locations. This was my third time back to this spot. From check-in to check-out, it was perfect. They do fun little extras like ask you if you want to email them a photo before arrival, and they frame it and put it in your room. It's the little things like that...they make a big difference! Jason at the front desk was awesome, and the lady that manages Blvd 16 is a true professional. We had a wonderful dinner experience there because this lady knows how to run a place! Top notch food and service...thank you for a great weekend.

Lechienblanc,
It’s always great to hear from Kimtpon Groupies. The little things make all the difference and the picture in the rooms make it feel like home. We couldn’t agree with you more that our employees really set us apart; Jason and Raquel are two superstars. Have a great summer and we look forward to welcoming you back for fourth stay.
