“Great location, accommodating staff, good rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

This is a gem of a hotel in a great LA neighborhood. The rooms are well appointed and quiet. The staff was terrific, accommodating and friendly. Every employee without exception made me feel like I was at home. This particular Kimpton felt more like a high end apartment building than a hotel, which makes sense as it is surrounded by luxury apartment houses. I particularly liked the manager's afternoon wine hour and the small but hip swimming pool area. Be sure to enjoy a glass of wine by the outdoor fireplace. Members of Kimpton's frequent traveler program get a voucher for products from the minibar and free wireless Internet. Parking was a little pricey, but the valets were very attentive and prompt. Westwood is bit far from the usual tourist locations, to be sure, but the hotel is walking distance to terrific restaurants and a couple of "off the beaten path" locations. The Armand Hammer Art Collection is just a couple of blocks away. Also within very easy walking distance is Westwood Memorial Park, where Marilyn Monroe rests in a rose colored crypt.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed similar. I chose a high room with a view of LA. It was one of the better views...

Stayed in this hotel because of it's close proximity to UCLA. We were given a room on the 19th floor with a spectacular view. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean. Loved the wonderful shower head and the fashionable fixtures in the bathroom. The hour long "free wine" in the lobby was a great way to cap off a busy day. Very "boutiquey" and modern lobby had a lounge feel. Staff was friendly and extremely accomodating. Would stay here again.

Hotel was great.. Check in was quick and easy, rooms was modern and clean.. The service was great except for the wake up call that came at 5am instead of 8am, but they quickly compensated for that by comping the valet parking for the night. I would definitely stay here again!

Lobby, bars, service up to the usual Kimpton standards but the bathrooms seem in need of a refresh. The toilet flush is loud enough to startle anyone in the bedroom, hot water takes quite a while and the showers are quite antiquated.

Made a reservation last minute and got a great deal on a great room! The staff meant all of my requests (a quite upper room with foam pillows) and gave me also a free upgrade. The bed and room was very comfortable . . . a topnotch boutique hotel! I work in this area a few times a year and will look forward to stay here again!

Room Tip: ask for the back of the building for a quite room

I enjoyed the hotel much more than my usual hotel in that area (Beverly Hills Plaza Hotel) and it was much closer to UCLA. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The wine hour in the lobby was great. I also was very happy with the coffee in the morning. I heard about the hot chocolate being so great, but did not try it. Early in the morning, I walked in the neighborhood and had a fine time. There is a Ralph's grocery store quite near. Valet parking, while costly at 33 bucks, was fine. THE ONLY NEGATIVE FROM THIS STAY IS PRETTY MAJOR: My credit card information was stolen and used to charge at/for Six Flags Magic Mountain. Fortunately, Wells Fargo is amazing at whatever they do to keep watch over accounts and they called me within hours of the fraudulent charges occurring. One other negative: we called to have ice cream brought up at midnight, on a Friday night, and were told it would be an hour and a half to two hours til it arrived. We didn't wait, but thought it was a bit strange.

Dear Blueskies,

Well I'm really happy you enjoyed the hotel but bummed about the credit card situation. Did it happen on property?

If there's any assistance you need from us please let me know!

I spent five days during Christmas vacation at the Palomar in Westwood. For me it was the perfect location and the best hotel I have stayed at in the area. I loved my up to date and modern room, with its wonderful bed and immaculate bathroom. I loved the pool, heated to perfection, and the pool area. The hot chocolate in the morning started me off perfectly before my run around UCLA and town. The wine at night was lovely and sitting in the lobby watching all the people and their dogs added to the welcoming atmosphere of the hotel. So, if you are in Los Angeles, have children in Westwood as I do, or just want a nice and somewhat reasonable place to stay, try The Palomar.

Room Tip: Higher rooms probably are better for the views and being away from the elevator would minimize noise...
