We were very impressed with the Hotel Palomar. Right from check in to check out the staff went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied. We were traveling with our young daughter and they put a goldfish in the room for her. They greeted her every morning and always asked about her fish. The rooms were very chic and... More

Was not able to get a place down in Santa Monica because of last minute. What a surprise, and not far where we need to get to. Though great as is, the room we got was a bit small, and the "full" size bed is not big enough for an adult and a child. My major gripe is the pricey... More

Having stayed at previous Kimpton Hotel's I was expecting more from the Palomar. Its not worth the expensive price tag. I stayed here for three nights and was disappointed. Check in was friendly but that was the first and only time I spoke to the desk staff, no welcome on return or leaving the hotel, even though its a very... More

Staying here now, checking out later this morning after two nights. Extremely positive hotel experience overall, friendly helpful people, nice clean rooms and some nice little extras like free coffee and newspapers in the morning. Only negatives were $37 a day for parking (a little steep, even around LA) and you don't get karma rewards credit unless you directly book... More

Osbozac, Thank you for the review and it’s always nice to have Kimpton Karma family stay with us. We couldn’t agree more that we have the friendliest people in LA working for us.

Had not been to this Kimpton property before. My new favorite hotel in L.A. Was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the service as well as the room. Everything was just perfect - the room, the food, the service even the WiFi was great. Will definitely go back.

We spent 3 nights at the Palomar for vacations. Staff are very professional , but a bit cold! The room was a bit small but nicely furnished. The location is excellent for all visits in Hollywood and Santa Monica and we appreciated the "wine hour" with free glasses of wine between 5 and 6!

We have enjoyed staying at Kimpton Hotels in the past and our stay Hotel Palomar this past weekend was very enjoyable. The staff was friendly and provided excellent customer service. The room was comfortable with nice touches (bedding, robes, great shower). The wine reception and coffee in the am (excellent for hotel) were outstanding. We highly recommend!
