This place is a low-rent motel with a veneer of Wes Anderson/Chateau Marmont interior design. They staff is very nice. The lobby and restaurant and interesting. I enjoyed the atmosphere and guests. But it's really just a Motel 6 dressed up in bespoke hipster style.

Nice style to the hotel. Very good accommodating staff. Strange centrally controlled heating and cooling system in the rooms. We just asked for a fan which we kept in our room for the duration of our stay. Everything we asked for was supplied (iron and board, water, ice). Would go back as it is in a very good location.

I booked this off hotels tonight. Big mistake!!! If you book off hotels tonight, don't expect hotels tonight to fix any problems. They make you fix all the problems and basically wash their hands of the issue once your card is charged. Big bait and switch here. The hotel itself is ridiculous - 309 bucks and no AC in the...

Convenient location in Melrose, some blocks away from Paramount Pictures to the east and LACMA to the south - naturally with LA size and distances. Interiors are elegant and quirky, old fashioned and retro details make it all a cool hip destination in itself. Private parking available (and suggested) at 20$ per day. Many talks about noise and paper thin... More

The hotel is very nicely designed. It is also well-located, in a fun area of LA (on Melrose). The room was clean. However, I reserved an off-street facing room, because I am a light-sleeper, but was told when I checked in that 'that type of room wasn't available'. My street-facing room was noisy and I did not sleep well. If... More

I have now stayed at Palihotel four times and it is always consistent and enjoyable. I like this location because you can actually get out and walk in LA. (Unheard of really..)

Hotel was very convenient to the West Hollywood area. Shopping, dinning and nightlife all within walking distance. Hotel staff was very helpful and parking was on site. Coffee in room with a small fridge. Bathroom was very nice and spacious. This was one of three Palihotels in the area. Starbucks within walking distance.
