The Palomar in LA is conveniently located in Westwood which places you very near many excellent dining options, as well as close to West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The accommodations are comfortable, the amenities are good, and the wine social in the evening is very well attended and fun. All of the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. All in...

My smiles started when I received the hotel's invitation to submit an "Arrival Photo" to be framed and placed in our room, as a welcoming gesture. I am always impressed with the amenities the Kimpton group offers everyone, and the extra special touches for members: early evening wine hour, morning coffee service, free WiFi, and this time, a "Raid the...

I stayed at the Kimpton one night and then had to come down to Orange County for business the next. After spending a night in a huge Orange County hotel near the resorts and convention center, I cannot believe how much I miss being at the Palomar. Here, it's huge and impersonal. At the Palomar, it's a little like staying... More

You will be treated like royalty in well appointed rooms. The staff anticipates your wishes and makes sure ahead of your visit that they have things in hand for your visit. Do not waste your time or money on any other hotel
