3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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..) It is located on Melrose and Fairfax and there are great bars, restaurants and stores all within easy walking distance. The parking for the car is easy and... More

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.

We had a great stay at the Palihotel! If you truly want a unique experience, stay here! If you don't eat at Hart and Hunter, you will be missing out on one hell of a dining experience. Food and service were spot on. I highly encourage a stay at this property if you want a low key and fun LA... More

Stayed two nights in the middle of LA County's heatwave, and loved this place. Parking on site, and friendly, easy check-in. Good location, within walking distance of restaurants, and right on a main public transport route. Room was quirky, and eschews many of the unnecessary 'extras' of regular hotels, whilst still providing them for the few people who still want... More

Stayed at Palihotel on Melrose for 3 nights, and it was a pleasant stay, the room was clean and had a great look. The thin walls weren't an issue for us. Good location, walking distance from The Grove. Staff-wise, the gentleman who checked us in was really lovely and very helpful, some of the other staff seemed a little disinterested... More

If you like a hotel with twin beds, a dirty shower, useless lighting and a sense of "weirdness" than this is your place. When checked in I realized we had twin and I mean twin as in when you were a kid beds.

Dear newton2016, We all due respect, your review is a bit of a joke. I recognize we are not for everyone but you booked into a Double Room which clearly states has two twin beds. We are sorry you lack an appreciation for unique design. And if you read our reviews, we have very high cleanliness rating. Perhaps a cookie... More

Palihotel was a one disappointment after another. The halls and our room were just way too DARK. The lack of lighting throughout the property is exacerbated by the dark green walls. Our room was also very small and very HOT, and as others have noted you can't adjust your own thermostat. The $22 parking is in an unsecured garage down... More

I am not a frequent visitor to LA, and I needed accommodations near the Matrix Theatre on Melrose....and voila! Pali-Hotel was superb.

I liked the look of the decor and wanted to like this hotel but in the end it was more like a highly decorated average motel. Once a hostel they didn't upgrade the paper thin walls so even a tv turned on next door would wake you up but perhaps you were already up in the middle of the night... More
