Delightful hotel in convenient Westwood location on Wilshire. Giant soaking tub in the "spa rooms" was great.
The most important reason I'll be back, though, is the staff.
1. The front desk was really and sincerely warm and welcoming. They even remembered my name the next evening when I stopped by ask a question (and that's BEFORE I ran into car trouble).
2. My car's battery died in the Palomar garage the third night I was there (hybrids park for free), and the manager took over, handling the problem (which, with a hybrid, is not as simple as a basic jump) and even paying my cab fare out to the restaurant where I was heading. Really above-and-beyond service, provided with professionalism and a positive attitude. I travel a lot, stay in chains with great staff (Starwood, Hyatt and Hilton), and this is the the most truly hospitable and professional staffs I've ever encountered. The Palomar is my new go-to hotel when I work in LA.
Also, if you join the frequent-stayer club (free) then wireless internet access is not only free, but almost seamless. A small thing, but very nice.
