Staff was phenomenal and friendly. Cool design and comfortable beds. Free wifi and hot chocolate/ coffee bar in the morning were an added touch that made this a fun place to stay. Really impressed with how on top of it the whole hotel team was - from the valet to the cleaning team to the front desk - felt like they were all on top of it. Wine hour also seemed fun even though we weren't able to participate. For the cost, location and overall quality this is a phenomenal value for LA.

We stayed with our children 2 and 5 years old and we got a great combination of luxury for the grownups and a nice atmospher for the children. We loved the room, the fantastic view and the very kind staff. The coffe in the morning and the wine hour in the evening made it a very nice stay. We highly recommend the hotel.

Kimpton Hotels in general are a lot of fun, but what sets them apart is their truly pet friendly attitude. We arrived at the Palomar in Los Angeles for a short New Year's vacation with our two dogs, one of whom is old and disabled. We were greeted with "doggie bags" consisting of food, biscuits, scooper bags and a bottle of "buddy water" all in a reusable feeding dish. It was really helpful. The room we had was small, but as is typical for a Kimpton, whimsically decorated. I really appreciate that the mini bar is old fashioned (no sensors that charge you if you touch something). I can actually read the ingredients or take a minute to decide if I really want that beer. I also love the animal print bathrobes.

The room was immaculately clean. For those of you without pets, have no fear. Only certain rooms are set aside for pets and if you aren't a pet lover, the hotel is just as friendly. Check in/out was efficient, accurate and pleasant. The restaurant in the hotel was also far above average for a hotel restaurant. We enjoyed a very pleasant, healthful breakfast. The bar has some interesting cocktails on the menu and their is complimentary coffee in the morning, wine in the evening and bicycles available for use. There is no free parking in the area, so be prepared to pay, although the hotel had some good packages with breakfast vouchers and complimentary parking when we were there. Be sure to ask. Its also a good idea to join their loyalty program. It costs nothing and the benefits (free wi-fi, $10 to spend at the mini-bar) are available immediately. In summary, I recommend this hotel without reservation to anyone looking for a fun, laid back, friendly stay in Los Angeles. Only one minor complaint; housekeeping forgot to leave us washcloths one day which was kind of annoying.

I have stayed here numerous times in the past 2 years, and I can honestly say that it is my all time favorite hotel.
The location and amenities are great, but what sets it apart is the comfortable and welcoming atmosphere that is created by a first rate staff. At each and every one of my stays here, the staff has been unfailingly friendly and helpful..Just an all around great choice

The staff at the Palomar are always very professional, helpful and friendly. I have tried several hotels in the area and there is no question that the Palomar has the best staff. They are even great with visiting dogs. They provide top quality beds and linens as well as robes and an umbrella should you experience the occasional rain. The proximity to UCLA is super.

Although I travel quite a bit, had never heard of Kimpton Hotels. Now I will start looking for them! Stayed at the Palomar because it was near a client's office. The service was fantastic! Ate breakfast at the hotel both mornings and it was delicious. There is a selection of coffees in the lobby in the morning (no coffee machine in the room but not needed with the lobby service). Rooms are very nice--comfortable, clean, cozy, quiet. Free WIFI is incredibly fast; some of the best internet service I've ever had at a hotel...and no charge! There is a huge selection of snacks. They are not cheap, but the caramel popcorn was great! There are no stores in the surrounding area; front desk said the nearest convenience store is about a 15 minute walk. We ate dinner at the Napa Valley Grill, which is about 10 minutes away. The meal and service were fantastic! Overall a very nice surprise! Would definitely return.
