I stayed here with my Girlfriend for 4 nights. We looked at a lot of other options in Santa Monica but made a great decision by staying at Palihouse.
From the moment we arrived to the time we left, Majed and the rest of the staff made us feel welcome and gave us excellent recommendations on local nightspots, restaurants and sights.
The hotels layout was different from any other id stayed at. Very Boutique and stylishly decorated. The room we stayed in wasn't huge but full of little surprises. My girlfriend loved the interior design while the free WIFI kept me happy. Not only was WIFI free, but multiple devices can be connected for free (something i have been stung with a few times in the U.S).
The main lobby doubles as a cafe/ restaurant which served great food. The staff created a great atmosphere by offering first class professional service, but where still relaxed enough to converse with guests, a great balance. The food was amazing, I had the granola parfait and the chicken sandwich, both top notch. The coffee was fantastic and reminded me of my local cafe at home!
We also enjoyed the location of the hotel. Short 5 min stroll to the craziness of Santa Monica promenade. We hired a car to get around L.A and I got fined parking near the Palihouse. So be careful parking the signs are a bit confusing, paying $40 or so extra for valet is worth it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We had a fantastic time and it was really sad to leave.
