We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Palomar on Wilshire Blvd and generally we enjoyed it. The rooms are a little small but clean and well equipped. We really enjoyed the shower which provided lots and lots of water. There is a small pool and a small gym. Both works fine and staff are quick to provided additional towels if needed.... More

I have stayed at the Palomar in the past and prior to last Saturday, had enjoyed the Kimpton brand. Last Saturday I came to LA on short notice for a small get together of friends who would happen to be in LA for the weekend. All I needed was a room in the area so I price lined something I... More

This place should give classes to other hotels on how to give A-Plus customer service! EVERYONE brought their A - game. I truly felt like I was staying at my best friends home!

I really like Klimpton Hotels, so chose this for a work trip up to Los Angeles. Not disappointed! The restaurant was great, the room was clean and comfy, and the service was really, really good! I can never decide whether I like the animal print robes or the yoga mat more. Don't do yoga, but I always like they think... More

When the hotel Luxe gave away my room in LA and I had no where to go, I asked them to take me to the Palomar in the Westwood section of LA. My experience is that the Kimpton chain of hotels, which include the Palomar, Onyx and others in cities around the nation, are always dependable. Cool, funky rooms, nice... More

I stayed here while attending a conference at nearby UCLA. The hotel was located in Westwood, not far from Santa Monica. For $1 you can take a bus to the Santa Monica pier, where you can go to the beach, watch the sunset, and rent bikes. My room was clean and comfortable, with a huge TV. The staff was very... More

This is a lovely hotel. Location is excellent: it is easy to get to Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. The restaurants of Westwood are nearby, some in walking distance. The rooms are large, comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The pool is small but comfortable and very relaxing. It was enjoyable to spend time there after a day of shopping and sightseeing.... More

Found a good deal for this hotel and was really impressed with the decor, staff and rooms. It is located in a more residential area, but is on one of the main streets in Los Angeles. Good central location if you're going to lots of parts of Los Angeles. Very good deal.
