Palihotel is an awesome little gem, located conveniently on Melrose ave. We stayed here for three nights and could not have been happier with our choice. The decor is unique and probably not for everyone, but me and my boyfriend loved it! Imagine Alice in Wonderland meeting a darker, richer version of Laura Ashley. Don't miss the hotel's restaurant; The... More

I stayed here for one night only last month while on vacation. I booked two L.A. hotels, only because my first choice wasn't available on this last night. I wish I had paid more to stay at my first choice. The staff were ok - not bad but not as friendly and helpful as I'm used to in the US.... More

Dear RachelC, Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed to learn Palihotel was not the right fit for you. The property was created for those who thrive on intimate, fun, comfortable, and contemporary hotels, and we understand it may not be for a more traditional traveler. For other readers, we also want to point out that the bathroom doors... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Palihotel; the staff were very friendly and helpful, the beds were comfortable, free wifi and the hotel location was perfect. The onsite cafe was also a great bonus. The only let down for me was the lighting in the bathroom wasn't great and could be improved and also that the room temperature was... More

Before you take my rating of "2" as gospel, I think it is important to consider that I'm in my 50's and I just accepted everything that annoyed me about this place without complaining, and therefore allowing them the opportunity to fix it. We checked in on a Saturday and were pleased that the hotel had met our need for... More

Hotel chosen for proximity to family's residence. Small hotel on busy street with nice cafe and bar. Room was small, no telephone in the room and unable to control the room temperature. The hotel desk staff had to be notified to adjust the temperature. Contacting the desk was by walking to the lobby, cell phone or email the desk. Poor... More

Hotel was very very cute and a great location close to my children and grandchildren who live in West Hollywood. Pauline, at the front desk, made checkin and checkout easy. Christina, the Hart and Hunter restaurant manager, was fabulous with both service and knowledge of the menu and wine list. Cara, the Palihotel exec, was friendly and inviting. The only... More

Melrose Ave. is a very fun street to stay in a hotel at. Everything is not very far away from it. We went on sunset blvd also to a dodger game. But the best part was going on a hike to see the Hollywood Sign . The only con I would say is the room temperature you don't have control... More

Dear himynameisnorma, Thank you for 4-star review! We are thrilled you enjoyed our location, and it sounds like you had a blast seeing all the sights. You are right, the temperature is controlled in the corridors. Fortunately, the climate in LA is mild and moderate and our rooms have windows that open.

The curb appeal and lobby of the hotel are very cool. It's quaint and funky in a fun location. Our room was dark and small, but felt clean. The front desk, parking and restaurant staff were also so kind and helpful. I wanted to like the hotel, but it was too noisy. (Granted we stayed two nights during NYE.) But,... More
