As something of a seasoned traveller and also having experienced a virtual plethora of more upmarket hotels ie Blakes, Covent Garden, The Hempel, Mondrian and The Chamberlain I decided to hang my hat at the Palihouse.
I certainly wasn't disappointed in my choice, this is a wonderfully eccentric, esoteric but fabulously welcoming and exquisitely tastefully marshalled combination of Classy European panache coupled with a genteel and sheltering decor which immediately sets the wearied traveller at ease.
The service is absolutely flawless, I cannot find a single negative comment or observation to make, everyone from the domicilliary staff to the FOH/concierge, the maitre d' and the housemaster have mastered the subtle art of attentive service whilst simultaneously not being the least bit stuffy.
The rooms are like New York loft style apartments though far less industrial in feel, every attention is paid to the minutiae the little touches and details which set this hotel apart from the competition.
I especially loved the artwork in my room which I gather the owner and rather wonderful arbiter of taste created.
The nuts and bolts as such are this, lovely airy spacious room which was immaculately presented and maintained, very comfortable bed and great use of layout and aesthetics in making the space both practical but with a unique character, a tough gig to pull off and one which other hotels like The Chamberlain aspire to achieve.
As far as some of the negative feedback on here is concerned I would say if you're sound sensitive dont choose to stay in WeHo perhaps go to Connecticut instead... This is an organic, living, breathing dynamic space which houses everyone from the worlds of commerce, captains of industry to ingenues and young families, all are treated the same, unique to this diamond of a hotel.
I found the noise and bustle of an evening both comforting and reassuring, all of life is here and it's vibrant and going about its business with vigour.
Make room for the best on the block as I gather there's to be a further addition to this family, and that's exactly what it feels like to be here, as though you're staying with a marvellously eccentric auntie and uncle who want to take excellent care of you whilst you enjoy and soak up the fabulous ambience.
The pinnacle of hotel service and design.
I'll definitely be back!
