This hotel is average. Nothing special. Hip? Maybe. Lobby is very small. Restaurant is very dark and service was poor. I literally sat at the bar and watched the bartender make drinks in front of me for 15 minutes before acknowledging my existence...and then he went around the bar and waited on the tables. Not good. Plus, on a Thursday... More

Nice place ,friendly staff, good refurb, rooms are good, but bathroom is still a bit poky. Valet parking is expensive but free parking is usually available in side street (except monday morning 8-10 am)

Unlike others we had plenty of hot water for great showers. But our room was clearly in need of an update... Hotel staff were all uniformly friendly and helpful. Sleep quality remains excellent and location remains tops. But: the $4.00 coffee at breakfast was lousy (oddly, the free coffee in the lobby was good), parking is plain exorbitant. So unless...

Just stayed here for 7 nights as a base for having a good look around LA. The hotel staff are all friendly and very efficient. I was given a room at the front looking over Wilshire Blvd, which was going to be too noisy for me for a weeks rest so the hotel moved me to the rear. Room very... More

This hotel is in a nice location, walkable to a lot in Westwood, with a typical Kimpton hipster vibe. The rooms are comfy, typical Palomar layout and amenities, but the bar was pretty worn looking, with the carpet heavily stained and the furniture kinda grubby and worn. I like Kimpton hotels and hesitate to give them a bad review, but... More

Our family recently stayed at The Palomar in Westwood for 5 nights. Normally we would stay at the Beverly Hilton but due to the Golden Globe Awards we decided to stay just a couple of miles down the road away from all the craziness. The Palomar is located on Wilshire Blvd but in a more residential area. Westwood Village is... More

We stayed at the Palomar during the quiet period between Christmas and New Years, having chosen the hotel because of the Kimpton brand and its location. I am generally a fan of Kimpton hotels, so it pains me to note the accumulated failures at this site. We occupied two rooms, one for parents and another for our children. The most... More

Clean, boutique style hotel, great location, although no restaurants/amenities within walking distance (Westwood Village near UCLA is a very short drive away). Staff was polite and courteous, and we even used the pool one late morning on a very cold winter morning (the pool, though small, was heated perfectly). There was a bit of odd housekeeping -- left a note... More

I went to this hotel on business and we stayed here due to both proximity to our event as well as great things we knew about the Kimpton brand in DC. They definitely uphold their standard - and THEN some, nationwide! We had a wonderful experience, everything from the food to the desk staff to the room cleanliness, the amenities... More

Pros: 1) Good location 2) Friendly staff 3) Love the Etro bath products Cons: 1) Pool area was a bit sad and depressing 2) Restaurant is just ok 3) Parking is valet only and expensive 4) Floors weren't cleaned often as room service items, glasses, etc. were left in hallways for long periods of time
