“Great Hotel on Los Angeles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

I could recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good value hotel, well located with rooms that are unique in their design.

From the moment I checked in, the staff were attentive, welcoming and nothing was a problem.

The rooms are extremely well appointed and the restaurants serve affordable and quality food and beverages.

Kimpton's my favorite hotel group and Palomar's a fine representation. Friendly, has what I want and need, environmentally aware, decent wifi, efficient and the only "loyalty" program that actually tips its hat to the non-frequent guest. A short WALK to Westwood Village

After spending 40 minutes on the phone with their remote support team.... I was told it was our laptops that have the issue. I asked to switch rooms and had no trouble connecting in the new room.

Day 2, our laptops and our cell phones... once again cannot connect.

If you are planning to do business from the hotel, I would not count on their connections. Unless you would like to work from the lobby for the day.

Having stayed in a great many hotels in a great many locations, I was delightfully surprised by the thoughtful courtesy shown by Hotel Palomar staff when I stayed at their Westwood location. Not only were staff able to answer any question presented, they did so cheerfully. How lovely to be treated like a guest!

Room Tip: I always insist on a room that is not near either the elevator or the ice machine.

I have stayed at the Hotel Palomar on several occasions and the experience is consistently postive. Easy access to many locations. Friendly and helpful staff. Good sized, clean rooms with comfortable seating and a well set up desk area. Everyone at the hotel seems genuinely intersted in helping guests.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel have a nice view of downtown Los Angeles.

I have returned many times to this hotel that has become a home away from home on business trips. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, which is probably why I go back again and again. However, the location itself would be a huge draw since it's an easy walk to the shopping and dining of Westwood and not far from Beverly Hills. Rooms are comfortable and stylish and I always get a good nights rest. If you don't have the energy to walk to Westwood for food, you won't be dissappointed by the hotel restaurant with a wide selection of snacks and entrees. The complimentary coffee bar and wine hour are also nice perks. I think that the price is fair for the location, my biggest warning is to take the cost of overnight parking into consideration. It adds up at an additional $34 / night.
