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!

This was a great hotel for our little weekend getaway! Even though it's on a busy street, the hotel was so quiet. The beds were great also! Loved the wine reception too!
