The Palomar is an attractive and well-run hotel. The staff is very helpful from the front desk, housekeeping, the bar and the valets. My room was on the 11th floor so the Wilshire Blvd noise was a non-issue - I was grateful they paid attention to my "quiet room" request. I ate twice at the bar (mid-week the restaurant isn't...

MuseumMom57, Thank you for the review and the kind words about the staff. We couldn’t agree more that they are fabulous. We are glad you joined us for dinner at BLVD16 as the Chef and his team have put together a great menu.

Westwood is high rise residential and corporate neighborhood off Wilshire. The design is nice, with a DJ spinning in the lobby at nights. The bar serves a nice complementary wine hour. The staff were very helpful and professional. The rooms are clean and comfortable with robust free wifi (with Kimpton rewards membership). Our room on the 12th floor was quiet.... More

During a house remodel, we struggled to find a decent hotel in LA that would take us, plus our two cats. Palomar (via Kimpton's pet-friendly policies) happily obliged and couldn't have been more accommodating for the four of us. We were "guests of the day" upon check-in which meant an upgrade to a higher skyline room. Nice view, but small... More

We agree the toilets can be pretty noises and are in the process of switching to a more water efficient model. Sorry there... More

I've stayed at a dozen or so Kimptons and this one could use a serious makeover. There is only so much "quaint and quirky" that works in a hotel. First the good stuff: location is fabulous, valet parking (only choice) is among the fastest I've ever seen anywhere, wifi was good throughout the hotel, great special rates when I booked,... More

After reading the review looks like we have to roll up our sleeves to catch up. We will share your feedback with our team and... More

I had a true "wow" stay at The Palomar Hotel in Westwood this weekend. I chose this fabulous hotel for my birthday celebration with my girlfriend!! It started with Judith Denetra recognizing me as guest of the day. She greeted me with great enthusiasm and a beaming smile. Then meeting Gilbert Vela, Front Office Manager. His attention to detail in... More

I've stayed at this hotel over a total of 6 nights on two different trips. I find the hotel to be very clean with great amenities. The hotel staff is courteous and attentive. I had an issue with the HVAC unit in my room on the first visit and when reported the hotel quickly made it right. Rates are higher... More

The hotel was recommended by a friend who traveled to LA regularly and maintained a residence in Westwood. My husband and I stayed at Palomar for 6 nights. Our check-in was probably one of the quickest we have experienced - it could not have been more than 3 minutes! Oddly, though, no bellhop approached us nor was called to help... More

We do get a lot of comments about the elevator cars either people love them or think they are strange. We... More

We stay here with our Siberian Husky whenever we come to LA visit our daughter, son-in-law and grandson.

What a great weekend stay at the Palomar Westwood. Every staff member was spot on when it came to a welcome. Many thanks to Austin who allowed us a late checkout as our brunch reservation ran past the expected time.

The room was quiet, comfortable and clean. We were on the 10th floor overlooking the highway which meant there was some traffic noise but this was not intrusive. The hotel offered a free wine tasting session each evening and the restaurant at the hotel offered good food. Though one morning the restaurant closed early at breakfast time without warning.
