There were a few problems with our room but the front desk could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Austin, the manager on duty, was delightful and he made sure we were taken care of. Also, the room service is delicious!

The staff was very helpful when the airlines lost my suitcase. The room was lovely and very quiet. The hotel was located near some great restaurants that were within walking distance. I did not use the workout facility because they had mapped out a 2, 5, and 7 mile walk that was terrific and I highly recommend if you want... More

My recent stay at the Palomar was amazing. From the modern-chic EntrY to the lobby to well designed room that has: brand new bathroom, super comfortable bed, great night view of Santa Monica. It was just what we needed after a long day of traveling and roaming around the busy city of LA. So comforting to walk into the more... More

I am the manager of a well known performing artist. Our group of 13 checked into the hotel for a 5 day stay. Some glitches arose that the staff worked tirelessly to fix within 24 hours.

Room was nice, clean and bright. It is in a business area, so nightlife isn't right there. But, the UCLA area is within walking distance so the entertainment options afforded by the university are easily accessible. Really liked the wine hour in the evening.

The personal is spectacular: Everybody is willing to help you. For example: I had a cold for a few days and at the elevator one of the service people saw me and asked me how was I and 30 minutes later the hotel came at my room with camomile and hot water without charges. The rooms are very good, breakfast... More

We had a nice stay here the night before flying home. It was at the end of a two week trip, staying in 8 different hotels. We need a little comfort, and we got it. The room was a bit small, but it was nicely done. Our girls got a kick out of the animal print robes. Beds were comfy,... More

I had a brief stay for business at the Palomar and it could not have been more comfortable. The staff was happy to help with dinner reservations and suggestions for how to make the most of a couple hours of free time while I was in town.
