Great Service, the room was ready for us when we arrived at 9am. The staff could not be more helpful

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Palomar Los Angeles - Westwood - a Kimpton Hotel
This is a cool, well-appointed charming Kimpton property. Clean and very comfortable. But both the man at front desk and young woman that I made a reservation with over the phone (through hotel's website) were snooty and seemed put out. I didn't ask for anything unusual. Was disappointed by their tone and attitude- unexpected treatment by a fine hotel. Would not stay at this place again because of it- especially for the price being paid.
Like an upscale W
I just got back from a 2 night stay at the new Hotel Palomar Westwood. What a place. A good way to describe it would be an "upscale W". I've never dealt with a friendlier staff than at the Palomar. Every single person I encountered there was great. The rooms, furnishings, bathroom, etc, were all funky-modern-comfortable-perfect. I've never given a hotel an excellent/5 star rating, but they really deserve this.
I reserved a spa room, but was upgrated to a 1br spa suite (rm 1801) , which had a seperate living room. The bathroom jacuzzi/spa tub and HUGE glass enclosed shower were incredible. I didnt have a "vista view" room, but being on the 18th floor, I still had a great view of the Hollywood Hills. I didnt want to get out of the bed, it was too comfortable. I would have dragged it out of there into the car if I could have.
I did get room service one night and the food was great. Like I said, I really can't find a fault with this place.
I would def reccomend staying here if your in LA and want to be treated right.
Felt like Family
My company booked me at the Palomar. It just opened so I was a little reluctant to be one of the first guests. I loved it. the staff were smart, fun and made me feel like a family member. I think this is going to be one of LA'S best hotels. The fitness center was the awesome. I have told my company and peers at work to stay there. Great hotel and a good value.
Highly recommend Hotel Palomar
I don't usually do these reviews, but this hotel is an exception. This is by far my favorite hotel in LA. My best friend (I can't stay w/ her I'm allergic to her 2 cats) lives in Westwood and whenever I visit I usually stay at other hotels w/in the area, but she heard that this one just opened, so I gave it a shot and let me tell you it's amazing! Beautiful style w/ a relaxing feel. The staff is great! I have no complaints, if you are planning to stay at a hotel in LA, I strongly suggest checking this one out!
Loved the New Palomar in Westwood Los Angeles!!
I can't even express how happy I was when I found out that Kimpton was opening up a Palomar in Los Angeles! I have stayed in many Kimptons across the country and Palomars are by far my favorite brand. It was no surprise to me that this brand new hotel Palomar exceeded all of my expectations. Everyone was so warm and friendly, every time I had an encounter with a staff member they were always smiling and providing assistance.
There are a number of great hotels in LA, but i prefer to stay at one that is eco friendly and actively takes steps to help the environment.
The rooms were absolutely beautiful and the beds were amazing! I didn't have a chance to eat in the restaurant, but I'm looking forward to stopping by on my next visit (and there will be a next visit!)
The hotel Palomar is a sheik, and sexy but not a place that I feel uncomfortable because it's "too cool" for me! I can't wait to come back!
WOW! L.A. get's a breath of fresh air!
My wife and I chose the Palomar as we are familiar with Kimpton Hotels. It certainly held up the reputation. The staff was outstanding. They greeted us with a smile and gave us their undivided attention, whether it was the Doorman or the Housekeeper! The hotel is located near everything you could ever want. The Concierge and Front Desk staff are well versed on the area and made it easy for us to get around. They even shuttled us around in the company car. Note that the hotel is eco-conscious so they have a high-end HYBRID vehicle.
Our room was spacious and of course spotless. They are fairly new (opened this month). From what I've observed, the staff takes great pride and look after the hotel as if it's their own home. If I had as nice of furnishings as they do, I guess I would do the same. It is a pretty hip yet sophisticated hotel that has an amazing sense of style. We stayed in a vista room. They have a beautiful view of the LA basin and you can see the ocean on a clear "LA" day.
The hotel's restaurant was cool with excellent food. Of course before dinning there, make sure you visit the wine party that is held every night, complimentary to guests of course! It really set the mood for a LA outing. VIP treatment!
Class and Service
My office is right up the street. What a great addition to the neighborhood after having to endure the W Hotel for so many years. The hotel is very sophisticated and classy. The staff makes you feel so welcome. It is so great to have a Kimpton Hotel in LA. The hotel has an amazing design and fitness center.Great Hotel. I am woried to many people will find out about it and I will not be able to secure a room. I did meet the GM at the wine hour, very hospitable as everyone else. Great hotel, great service, great price and the beds!!!!!!!
Gorgeous New Hotel!
I just stayed at this hotel in Westwood area on Wilshire called Palomar that just opened up. I had to go to UCLA and it's really close. The place is beautiful and everyone was so friendly. I loved my room b/c it was high up and had great city views. Beds were amazing! Very cool decor but not so much that you don't fit in. The restaurant wasn't open yet but I looked at the menu and got to see the space which is also very urban. They have free wine for people in the lobby at night...please who doesn't love free wine! I've told my friends about this place and will certainly return!

After nearly 36 hours of travelling, we finally arrived in Los Angeles, the city was covered in a layer of fog, but some glimpses of the lights and the size was evident. It was 0830 local time when we got out of the airport, but to us we had no idea.
Found a Shuttle that would take us to our Hotel, hoping that the room would be available …
Finally arrived at LAX after the longest leg, 11 1/2hrs. We were lucky enough to get 2 skycouches, as the flight was pretty empty and since we'd purchased one, were 1st in line to get another. If looks could kill, lots of very unhappy people around us. ...
... thing of a superhero short film. It was OK but just silly. We left and thank god we did as we just made it to the last bus - typical us. I wouldn't normally wear a seat belt but for some reason I thought I'd put it on. Everything was fine until we needed to get off but the seatbelt was stuck. Somehow I'd plugged it in backwards and it wouldn't come apart. Dais was laughing so much but we had to get the bus driver to come up and undo it for me. I did think we'd have to cut it or ...

Marina Del Ray is a Marina complex where you can have a permanent address and the postman will deliver your mail. This place they also have specialist clinics for their pets. Physiotherapy, dentists, cat scans (not not really I just made that up about cat scans, but they probably do!!). Keep in mind that these pets get catered for in wills and get left millions of dollars to make sure they are ...
... Sacha Baron Cohen, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Al Pacino, Drew Carey (who apparently drives a Vespa now) . Also found out Nikki Minaj drives around in a hot pink range rover, because she can. After stars homes we headed past Bel Air! Very fancy and you can take private tours! Then we headed off to Rodeo Drive!!!! Andrew let us off the bus for 10mins to walk around. Walking past Versace, Jimmy Choo etc. Shane and I stopped at one jewellery store (outside of ...
