I stayed at the Palihotel for work for two weeks. Fantastic place. Incredible restaurant! Everyone was friendly and I really felt at home. I'll be coming back......................................................

All the Pali properties - Palihouses and Palihotel - are homes away from home. I really enjoyed Palihotel's modern rustic decor and warm intimate atmosphere. It's a small-scaled, pared-down version of Palihouse (Santa Monica and West Hollywood), but it has everything I expected - friendly staff, good food (The Hart and The Hunter), comfortable bed, central location (surrounded by shops...

This would have been a good choice for a couple looking for a one or two night break but for us, a family of three staying for 4 nights as part of a three week road trip, it was not suitable. The positived include, the hotel has character, it's spotless and the location worked well for us. It's close to... More

My granddaughter and I recently stayed at the Palihotel. It is not a chain, which was very attractive and what drew us to it in the first place. Their customer service was excellent and the in-hotel restaurant The Hart and the Hunter was superior, cozy and inviting. We like to walk so the location was perfect for us. It is... More

An excellent choice. I went in June 2014 when I was in E3 fair. Everything is good: location, price, rooms and hotel staff. Only a little inconvenience, in the rooms there are'nt lockers. If I'll return to go to E3 fair, Palihotel will be one of my choices

This is a good hotel but like everywhere in LA it's not particularly central to anywhere - you need a car if you're coming to LA! The bed was comfy & the towels & linen were lovely quality. The rooms were a good size, clean & quirky. Small criticisms, there's no safe & you can't control the temperature of the... More

Stayed here on a last minute work trip (booked via HotelTonight) and got a screaming deal. The rooms are basic (no phone, but really who needs one?) but generally well appointed with high end bath products and snacks. If you're looking for something high end/ luxury, this isn't your place, but this is now my go to spot for a... More

Hotel has very strong design point of view. My only complaint about the room was the lighting--despite the numerous lamps, the room always seemed dark, especially in the bathroom. The immediate neighborhood does not offer many bars and restaurants within walking distance, but we did walk to the Blu Jam Cafe for breakfast (highly recommended). The staff was very helpful.
