“Last minute bargain”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

We booked this at last minute after deciding driving in LA with a hangover wasn't the best idea & that we'd better stay an extra night.
Westwood is quite a cute little area, a few little restaurants, shops & retro looking cinemas.
The Palomar was great. Lavish furnishings, animal print robes and nice comfy beds.
The staff were all really friendly, felt like the bell boy went out of his way to make us feel welcome and explain how everything in the room & hotel worked.
The complimentary fruit water in reception was most welcome & they host a cheese & wine reception each evening.
This is also a dog friendly hotel which they make quite a fuss about so perfect if you want to bring your pooch.

Dear Flora1980,

We love it when our guests take the elevator home rather than drink and drive and I salute your responsible decision! Thank you for highlighting our signature offerings such as wine hour, complimentary spa water and funky robes and we're here for you anytime a night on the town in LA jeopardizes your ability to drive home safety. In a pinch...we'll even come and get you!

All the best,

Albert Smith

We stayed here on a mix of business and vacation, and would highly recommend. We had a spa suite with a HUGE bathroom, great soaking tub and separate shower. What really made the hotel was the staff - helpful, friendly and kind. The wine hour was nice too!

Dear Bunny,

Thank you for the review and for commenting on our awesome suites! As noted, they are huge and for future reference, we have some lovely bath salts for those incredible soaking tubs. As always, I love it when our staff gets mentioned. We have a rare collection of valuable employees that are here because they truly love making meaningful connections with our guests. If you have stayed at any other Kimpton hotel you might find this to be a common theme...our company has learned the value of caring for it's employees first and how that translates into an amazing and heartfelt customer experience!

Hope to see you again soon,

Albert Smith

This was my third stay at the Hotel Palomar Westwood. I love this hotel! The entire staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are super clean and quiet, the beds are luxurious. The rates are reasonable for the area, especially when you consider the service and amenities.

The hotel is convenient to UCLA, The Getty & Beverly Hills. Ask for directions to avoid the 405 freeway. It is currently undergoing major construction.

I always feel spoiled when I stay here. The next time I visit LA I be staying here.

I have stayed at this hotel 6 or 7 times. Sometimes for business, but mostly for pleasure. It is my hotel of choice in the Westwood area. A really cool boutique hotel that is different from the big name brands. I really like the breakfast in the restaurant. I always get the 3 egg omelet for $11, plus a plate of fruit for $5. Also, the small bar always has nice people hanging out there. The bartenders are really friendly and very helpful. The front desk is very responsive and will go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant. Also, the doormen are very friendly. You can easily walk over to Westwood village where there are a lot of dining choices. I really like the coffee bar and newspapers available in the lobby in the morning. Always a very friendly group of guests that stay here.

Room Tip: The views on the south side are better, but I believe they are in a higher rate category.

Dear nonstop_8,

I'm so happy you once again enjoyed your stay with us and loved the vibe during coffee hour as well as in our bar. We are waltzing into a really cool refresh of our bar area which you will absolutely have to experience when it's done (mid Decemberish).

Hope to see you again soon and please feel free to contact me directly if I can help with anything at all!

All the best,

This is the second time we stayed in a Klimpton hotel, and like the other one the standard was high. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and the room was large and comfortable. The location was excellent for us, near to Westwood Village which is an easy walk, with lots of restaurants. It is also convenient for the Getty centres.

The complementary continental breakfast was fine, and you get free wifi as long as you join their customer program (I can't see any downside to this). Parking is valet parking at $30 a day so you need to budget for that if you have a car.

We really enjoyed our stay here. As many have said, location is good - took us 20 mins from LAX (Sunday); close to coast, Getty, Beverly Hills and Brentwood (which we found nice to visit to eat in) etc. Also easy to find your way back to as on a major road!!!

The adjacent restaurant offered good food, especially breakfast and service there was very friendly.

Was lovely to come back after a long hot day sight seeing and relax in my animal print robe (difficult to choose between the leopard and zebra!) in the lovely pool area - check out the photos it is beautiful! Rooms and beds also v. comfortable and loved the quirky but stylish decor.
