I stayed two days on a personal trip at the Palihotel. This boutique hotel is cute and with personality. The staff is fantastic and helpful and I used their service multiple times with great results. Attached to the hotel is a wonderful eatery which I dined at a couple times. Loved it! Unfortunately, it's the few 'off' things that prompted... More

I just spent a week at Palihotel while in L.A. for Thanksgiving, and I absolutely loved it. The location is great, right on Melrose near Fairfax, with numerous eateries and coffee shops and galleries and shopping and Canter's and Cinefamily an easy walk away. It's also a fantastic central point in the sprawling city from which to visit all of... More

First, let me say all the reviews are which say this hotel is incredibly cool and has a great vibe are 100% correct. In addition, the hotel has a great location right near the Melrose shopping strips (on both sides of Fairfax), the Grove, the Beverly Center and West Hollywood. All are walkable. And nightlife in Hollywood is a short... More

I am almost reluctant to write a review of this hotel because I do not want it to become so popular that I can't get a room there. Not saying my reviews are the reason for this because it just become part of the zeitgeist. The Palihotel was great from the second I walked through the door till the moment... More

I travel to LA quite a bit and this time I didn't have my dog with me so I decided to try the Palihotel. I'm SO glad I did. I plan on staying here again. The only downsides are the poor lighting and lack of storage. I must say, the lighting fixtures, lamps, etc were all cute but didn't provide... More

The Palihouse on Melrose is a great spot. We stay at the hotel every time we visit Los Angeles. Angel at the front desk always remembers us. He is a pleasure to deal with. Keep in mind that the walls are very thin. If you are a light sleeper , use earplugs that they provide. Also, the rooms are quite... More

Palihotel is a great Melrose Ave boutique hotel. I mean, the experience you have at almost anyplace is all about your expectation, right? . Expect funky -- with a nice bed and nice linen and a fine bathroom with a great shower and a funky street -- and you will love it!

We enjoyed our stay in this small hotel with its character décor . Our room upstairs with a balcony over the road was an adequate size, comfortable bed, quality linen, aircon, and the bathroom was good. However there was no privacy from the road without pulling the blinds over the doors fully down. Day time privacy screens would be a... More
