My husband and I were in LA for 3 nights, as a stopover on our way to Canada. We had looked at many hotels on Tripadvisor trying to decide where to stay, Adam ended up surprising me with PaliHouse! It was our anniversary during our stay and the bottle of wine in our room made it feel like the staff cared we were using their hotel to celebrate. Much appreciated.
Positives of hotel:
Outstanding customer service from Majid and Dan (great restaurant recommendations etc)
Amazingly comfortable bed
Spacious room with wonderful quirky decor
Gorgeous courtyard (we were travelling with our 19 month old daughter so it was wonderful for her to have somewhere to run around)
Wonderful lobby to chill out in
Bikes for hire which is excellent for riding along the promenade
Breakfast took quite a long time to come both mornings we ate at the hotel (40 minutes) but the food was healthy and not the normal huge American portion sizes which we appreciated! Fresh carrot juice is a winner.
Bathroom is small but that is expected in historic buildings and just fine for a few days
Overall absolutely wonderful place to stay, we will again!! Finally, I must mention how happy we were to get an early check in after 18 hrs in transit with a baby from our home in Australia! That set us up for a fab few days exploring. Thank you.
