Palihotel is a pretty nice hotel with comfortable beds in slightly small rooms. The rooms are well equipped and you're definitely getting what you're paying for. Even though it's newly renovated the rooms are a bit noisy and you can sometimes hear when the neighbours are moving around in their rooms, even though it doesn't bother that much. The restaurant...

Location -- 1 mile from West Hollywood hot spots. No reason to pay double to stay on Sunset Boulevard. For 1-2 nights, this is perfect price & location. Room -- Was ready for me to check in 3 hrs before check-in. Very clean, funky decor, comfortable beds, top of line toiletries, rain forest shower, piping hot water. Drawbacks - no... More

I stayed for one night at the Palihotel on Melrose. As soon as I arrived I felt at home, had breakfast, a delicious egg and bacon sandwich and orange juice. The room was very nice, dimmed lights and cozy. Cara was very nice at my check out!! Great location, rIght ON MELROSE, walking distance to the cool bars and shops.

This hotel is located on Melrose Ave. We had a car and it was very easy to find a parking spot on the streets around it. The hotel was nice, but different decorated. A little bit of industrial and country mix. Clean rooms, a little bit dark. The staff was very friendly and service minded. I would warmly recommend this... More

This little gem is really interesting. I am way past being 25 again that is the average age of the young people in the area and at the hotel. I knew by others who reviewed this hotel that the air conditioning was "iffy" so I asked to see the room saying I needed to stay in a cool one. Check... More

Overall, I really did like this hotel, but there was one aspect that would keep me from staying there again, which is that you cannot control your room temperature from your room. If you want to change the temperature of your room you have to go up to the front desk and ask them to do it for you, as... More

My husband and I stayed here one night prior to visiting a friend's son attending UCLA. It is about 20 minutes from UCLA in traffic, while avoiding the highways. Nice way to see a different part of West Los Angeles area. The front desk staff, Connor, was exceptionally courteous, with just the right level of graciousness, personality while being very... More

I stayed at the Palihotel recently as the first stop on my USA adventure. The hotel room was stylish and clean. My bed was comfy and the shower was incredible (no other hotel shower came close)! The bathroom could have used some ventilation but this wasn't too much of an issue. The walls were a bit thin but this also... More

Dear Ryanpennie, Thanks for your 4-star review. We agree our location on Melrose is ideal for out-of-town guests, not just for sight-seeing via car, but also for walking.
