Had a great three day stay at the Hotel Palomar and as usaual found the accomadations to be nicly designed and very comfortable. The hotel staff is attentive and welcoming and the extra services like complimentry coffee service in the morning and the happy hour in the lobby in the evening are nice additions that made the stay more comfortable.
The properties location is in a lovely residential area but central to both beach and downtown allowing me to easly mix business and leasure time.
I am making the Palomar my LA hotel.

Room Tip: South facing rooms are quieter since they do not face Wilshire Blvd.

I stayed here for 4 nights on business in October 2013 and have to say it exceeded all of my expectations. It's a boutique style place with a funky lobby area where they serve complimentary coffee in the morning and wine tasting every evening. A great way to start and end your day when you're there on business. The restaurant/bar has a good vibe and great selections of food and drink.
I stayed in a standard king room which was ample, very well appointed and had a great contemporary feel.
There is free wifi after you sign up to their loyalty program which is great for the overseas business traveller, like me!
Overall, very much punching above its weight and I would go back there for either business or vacation.

Dear Pete L,

Nothing like that glass of wine, or two...waiting for you after a day in the office. Now that the business trip was a success, you get to comer back for a true LA vacation! Thanks for staying with us.

We stayed here one night with our two dogs. Upon arrival (keep in mind we had spent the past 9 days driving across country from NY, so we were probably a little disheveled). I could feel the valet practically cringing but trying to keep it under control. Maybe from all the random bags that we needed to unload, yes for only one night, or maybe because our vehicle wasn't a sports car, or maybe because it wasn't spotless?? I don't know. And the interior wasn't dirty with accumulated garbage either, it was very clean. The doorman, who the valet was exchanging glances with, didn't seem to be a person who liked dogs either, poor guy. Not that he has to pet every dog, but the look on his face when our younger dog was trying to get his attention spoke for itself.
The front desk staff, bartender and room service was all excellent.
We sat with our dogs in the lobby for their cocktail hour and enjoyed a complimentary glass of wine and listened to some live music, that was nice and the wine was very good. The other guests in the hotel who we chatted with were also very nice.

In the morning I brought our dogs outside and luckily grabbed a cup of coffee on the way back to the room. They have complimentary coffee in the morning but it only goes until 9am. When we went back down just after 9, it had already been cleaned up... bummer.
They have a great restaurant/bar/lounge that we enjoyed happy hour in. But dogs are not allowed. They have a decent room service menu though and in my opinion, was reasonably priced too. Seemed very comparable to the prices in the restaurant.

It is nice to know dogs can stay at any Kimpton without paying pet fees. That was a huge plus which helped offset the $11 phone charged we received for making a phone call!!! I think I wasn't even on the phone for 5 minutes. That was so stupid! I called Carmel, CA... not Canada. They have free wi-fi, pets stay free, and then change $2 a minute to make a phone call. I would've used my cell but I didn't have the best reception in the room.

As for the room. It was beautiful! We didn't really have a view of much, we were facing the back of the hotel. But it was clean and the bed was very comfortable.

We stayed just one night at the Hotel Palomar LA -- a stopover on an international trip. Room was contemporary in styling; not a great view (faced north toward Wilshire Blvd.) But it was QUIET! We felt like we were the only ones staying on our floor. The hotel was convenient to get to the Getty, our primary sightseeing stop. The hotel staff was friendly. They were happy to hold our bags after checkout until our evening flight. Would definitely consider another stay at the Hotel Palomar the next time we're in LA.

This was a really cool place. The staff were super friendly and the attentive. The foam pillows we requested were in our room when we arrived. The room was decorated in a very contemporary comfortable style. Everything was done really well and the location was great especially for us traveling to see an athletic event at UCLA. The maps for jogging we great and we enjoyed the bar in the lobby. We will definitely return and will seek out other Klimpton Hotels as we travel to other cities.

The jog through the UCLA campus is awesome! Great way to see Westwood. We are opening a new hotel and restaurant in Seattle next year, maybe your new local spot...? Come see us on your next trip down the coast.

A major let down. Having read great reviews on here, I booked a skyline view room through the Kimpton website and made requests for foam pillows through the Kimpton Intouch programme. After a long flight, I checked in with a printed copy of the reservation and was put into a standard room with a view of Wilshire apartments. After a couple of days I asked at reception and they admitted messing up. I was on the floor foam pillows are kept on rather than the top floor I had booked. The hotel had also asked for a photo to be emailed in advance to be in the room when I arrived; it wasn't there and who knows where it ended up - certainly not on floor 16 with the foam pillow stock. Staff apologised, offered a change but I didn't want to pack everything up again and so amended room rate to standard and comped a breakfast.

And that sort of sums up my experience. There is a lack of attention to detail. The check-in saw my booking, but didn't read it. A photo was sent and not used. There is no full length mirror in the room (we're off to a wedding). The lighting at breakfast is so gloomy and the service so slow it feels as if you've slipped into the Twilight Zone.

The staff are friendly, and the valet guys exceptional in speed and service. But it all feels like a lot of talk and not much walk...

Room Tip: Take a print out of your booking and double check you're getting what you've paid for.

This is a cool, funky, modern hotel, which is what typically makes a Kimpton hotel a fun place to stay. The views (depending on where your room is situated) provide a cool overlook on the sprawling LA area. The Westwood location is convenient to Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica (~15 min cab ride to Santa Monica). We were here for a wedding and were able to explore a lot of LA from this relatively central location.
