This is the fourth Kimpton Hotel I've stayed in and this one was as unique and special as the others. Located in a gorgeous area of west Los Angeles, it's decor is striking and very "Los Angeles." Anyone from the LA area will know what I mean. Modern paintings, dim lights, lots of black and red, etc. Very "hip." The lobby and bar were humming with activity and were obviously very popular gathering places. The rooms were also strikingly decorated and very comfortable, clean and well equipped - with a few exceptions. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were perfectly awful! They were the worst I've ever tried to sleep on but I didn't realize it until I had gone to bed. They were so high and hard that my neck just couldn't deal with them. I slept without a pillow much of the night. Be sure and check your pillows when you arrive. Hopefully they might have some alternative pillows available. On my online reservation, I had asked for coffee makers for both of the rooms I booked, but they were not there when I arrived. (This also happened in another Kimpton Hotel.) I requested them again and they were put in the rooms, but one of them did not work the next morning. The TV in my room had a very poor picture and took forever to respond to the remote. HD TV's would certainly be nice additions to these rooms. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant, Blvd. 16, and it was very good, though somewhat limited in choices. The breakfast was wonderful. We were visiting The Getty Center, which is just a short drive - but a harrowing one due to the extensive construction going on on the nearby 405 Freeway. I would return to this Kimpton but only if better pillows were offered.
