Kimpton Hotel Palomar Los Angeles

Beverly Hills, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

The hotel

With an A-list address in Westwood, bordering Beverly Hills, the Palomar’s a microcosm of all that’s great in LA: the laid-back poolside living; the celeb-worthy design details; the new trend of sustainable cooking. Here you don’t just visit LA, you live it. Its sense of style infuses every space, but nowhere more so than at the pool, where an al fresco lounge features comfy cushioned seating and a fireplace. Double Take serves up unfussy, market-inspired snacks, salads and entrées that shine with Southern California ingredients. Bookending each day, the complimentary morning refreshments and evening wine hour remind you this is the land of indulgence; while the free 24-hour gym’s wall of windows looks out onto Wilshire Boulevard, so you don’t miss any sightseeing.

We enjoyed our stay and found it to be typically Kimpton, which is a good thing. Clean hotel with nice boutique touches throughout and with courteous, friendly staff. Location was good and we enjoyed our stay.

This was a quick 24-h visit to LA to take care of some paperwork. The hotel is alright, but nothing spectacular. It is clean and quiet and has an ok style in the rooms.

This was a quick 24-h visit to LA to take care of some paperwork. The hotel is alright, but nothing spectacular. It is clean and quiet and has an ok style in the rooms. That said, it could’ve been maintained in a better condition (e.g. the mirror in my bathroom had cracks on it, sideboards and doors were in poor shape too). There is no coffee/water/tea in the room, which I did not expect for a hotel that positions itself the way Kimpton does. Room service in the evening was not available either. So if you arrive late (as I did), you are stuck with Uber eats or lobby grab’n’go very, very limited choices. Also, yes, keep in mind you get a $29 amenities fee (which is somewhat offset by a $15 voucher that you can apply to pay for parking, food, etc.) Read less

Great location - convenient to Westwood, UCLA and Santa Monica. Rooms were clean and quiet. The staff was pleasant and promptly helpful. In short, everything I was looking for in my stay. Would recommend

Hotel said it would cancel my reservation. Afterwards, it charged me and cited a 72 hour cancellation policy, even though I never stayed there. The manager went out of her way to be rude. I will never stay at a Kimpton again.
