We booked on Hotwire and got a great rate however there are so many hidden charges. Parking, valet only, tips everytime you need your car, Internet and the food is outrageously priced and it is not located near any other restaurants. The location is not that great, near UCLA but everything else is a drive. It took us an hour to get to Hollywood. Rooms are very small and the hotel did not feel clean. Smelled of cigarette smoke and there is no fresh air, windows do not open. The street noise is very bad. If you just want a cheap rate book it on Hotwire. Another reviewer mentioned the pool. We went out there and there is no room for more then 6-8 people and the neighbors behind the hotel look down on the pool area. Not very comfortable.

Booked a king spa suite for a weekend getaway with the girlfriend, and it was about perfect. Valet and front desk staff were all smiles and very helpful. The room was better than expected. Big, very clean, full of amenities, stylish, super comfortable bed, and the fuji soak tub rocks! The hotel has a great feel and style to it. The location was just fine, not sure what some other reviewers were expecting? LA is a very spread out destination, and the Hotel Palomar provides a nice central location. Close to Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Griffith park, UCLA, etc. Would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed at Palomar in April 09. Compared to most hotels in Los Angeles and Calofornia in general, this place is outstanding. Quite European styled, modern and comfortable rooms and interieur, far away from the boring sand- and earth-colored US standart room boredom. We had a suite on 16th floor with large bathroom, jahcoozi, fantastic view on Los Angeles, panoramic windows. Classic!
Who does not mind surroundings with large town blocks won't be disappointed. You'll go to Santa Monica or Beverly/West Hollywood within minutes by car. Next large supermarket is 3 minutes away. A plus: free Wi-Fi. Negative, bad parking situation and expensive parking charges if you park in the hotel garage.

We booked hotel bases on reviews. The location is not very good. It is about a mile to any restaurants or activities. Restaurant and room service very expensive, the restaurant was not open for lunch. I think that was a good thing with the prices. The pool was ridicilous. Holds maybe five people. The biggest disappointment was the room size. They are so small, hardly largr enough for one, certainly not for a family. We only paid $100 a night on Hotwire and it was not worth anymore. Oh yes, be careful of the air conditioner and street noise. They advertise free internet yet charge for the business center. Staff was OK, thirty dollars to park though.

Company booked the room for me and it was pleasant enough. Modern design with some nice design touches although the common area lighting is a little too 'moody' (aka dark). Nicely sized rooms for my tastes, well kept and the staff are very polite and helpful.

Nice touches include:
- free wireless with a strong signal (still a rarity at higher priced hotels for some reason).
- Aveda bath products
- LCD tvs with actual HD feeds
- iPod docking alarm clock

Some minor things:
- windows don't open
- $40 cab ride from airport
- no bar scene unlike many boutique hotels

Fatal flaw:
- loud HVAC
