Visiting W. Hollywood to visit my son for Thanksgiving. Personally, I could have not chosen a better hotel for myself, but that was in large part because the hotel was located within walking distance to my son's apartment. Of course, that fact will be of no value to you. Would I stay there again? Absolutely. I say this for several...

The hotel has a very artistic vibe that gives you a LA experience in a cost efficient manner. Leaving the bed was a task for us, the custom beds and luxury linens will have that effect on you. Their unique breakfast offerings were a standout. The location is great too. Overall, a great experience at this hotel. -- A drop...

I found everything about this little gem to be fantastic! The front desk chap was incredibly welcoming and helpful upon my late night arrival from the UK. The room was a little dark but spacious, cool and comfortable with fashionable decoration, lighting and furniture. My bed was so comfortable I slept like a baby! The bathroom, agains a little dark,...

A prior review complained about #113; wish I'd read it first. (I slept with ear plugs). Decor, front staff, housekeeping, restaurant, wifi - high marks. Lumpy mattress, low end pillows, linens & noise - serious problem. Strange given nice toiletries provided and gourmet mini bar. Although no thermostat, always comfortable. I'm sure they have nicer rooms - avoid 113. Stayed...

After checking in and realizing we were right off the front lobby, and there was a birthday party going on in the restaurant, we asked to be moved. The front desk - with an attitude! told us they were booked, and hopefully the party would end soon (which it didn't). She told us she'd talk w/ the manager (never heard...

Dear luluriz, I was so dissapointed to hear about your experience. Please note that we do always read every guest survey and yours was no exception.

Superficially a quirky and fun design focussed hotel but in reality difficult to enjoy a stay.The service is wonderful at the front desk; Makeda and Sophia? were both wonderful, very helpful for a traveller who had arrived from a long trip from Australia with no sleep. Unfortunately, the rooms don't live up to the service and perception - rooms are...

Dear RonWamberal, We are so proud of our team and will pass on your positive remarks to Makeda and Sophia! Los Angeles is definitely a driving city, but there are quite a lot of fashionable shops and restaurants on Melrose and attractions in the local areas. We like to say the rooms offer “everything you need and nothing you don’t”...

This hotel tries to be hip and cool but doesn't quite get there. Rooms are comfortable but basic. There are no telephones in the rooms, so if you need to contact reception you have to use your own phone or email them. Air conditioning is centrally controlled so you can't set your own temperature. The wifi is also a bit...

This is a stylish hotel on a great strip of Melrose Avenue. I was travelling with a colleague for a very busy few days of meetings and events. We could have done with an ironing service which wasn't available. The wifi in my room was really poor. I think if you're considering the Pali for a relaxing weekend it would...

Great little hotel, looks like it was previously an office block of some kind, the rooms have all been tastefully done, and the communal areas are fine. The lift sounds a bit rickety, but it works perfectly well. Free wi-fi throughout which was a bonus! Would recommend :-)

Nice hotel in a decent location. Decoration is a bit different to most hotels, but it works. Comfortable room for a couple of nights, except for the air conditioning. At check in they told us they have centralised air con, ie not a separate system in each room. What this seems to mean in practice is the room gets far...
