Stayed for 10 days while working at my company's head office in LA. If you are on holiday the hotel is well located, as it is midway between Hollywood and Santa Monica and close to B. Hills, Century City and Brentwood. Rooms are a good size (big enough for 2 adults and a child, though I was in my own).... More

Philip O, Thank you for the review and we couldn’t agree more that our location is great for visiting LA. Sorry we did not make you aware that we do have shower gel and coffee makers available that could have been sent up to the room. Since LA is car crazy it does make parking difficult however with a secure... More

I tried to book two rooms on the Kimpton site but it showed only one available. Booking.com showed two rooms which I reserved. On check-in I learned that Kimpton will not give you Karma credit for stays booked through third parties. This situation and on top of a dirty ill-kept Kimpton room on lower Wilshire on my last trip to... More

Robert R, Thank you for the review and sorry for the confusion at check in about the Kimpton Karma program. We do offer Kimpton Karma rewards for booking.com but most other third party sites we do not. Sorry to hear that our housekeeping team wasn’t on their “A” game during your last stay.

I was satisfied with my stay mainly because I got a last-minute discount rate. There's not much to justify paying a higher luxury rate. I've stayed at nicer Kimptons. This felt like an older building that'd been gussied up with cheap animal prints and a drab pool that looks to have been the former loading dock. Also, housekeeping turned OFF... More

ReadyForThisJelly, Thank you for the review and sorry we didn’t match up to our sister properties. Though the physical building is older by LA standards we take pride in keeping the property looking good. We are also in the process of putting together a remodel and refresh plan for 2015. We will circle back with our housekeeping department to ensure... More

The hotel was nice. The bar area was really nice. I valeted my car for $45 which is super pricey but I guess that's the standard in LA. During my 1 night stay, I lost my Bose headphones. I only had them in the car and room. Called the hotel but they couldn't find them. I'm not going as far... More

Came to Los Angeles for a week and this place is in a very convenient place. A short walk to UCLA and a quick 4 miles from the Santa Monica pier.

I spent three nights at the Palomar after Labor Day and loved the facilities and the staff. On the top floor, room 1902, actually a suite, was part of a well-priced package that included parking and a daily F&B credit, was spacious and had open views to the south. The bathroom was enormous, with separate tub and stall shower. Furnishings... More

My wife and I flew into LAX from New Zealand last week and spent two nights at the Palomar. Well, what a place! Right from the reception desk welcome by Caesar to our departure we thoroughly relaxed.
