Kimpton Hotel Palomar Los Angeles

Beverly Hills, Los Angeles

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.

They charge full price and do not have staff to clean the rooms or public areas. Rooms are filthy and the gym is a mess. They ask you to schedule cleaning services with 24 hours and even then its not assured.. I am extremely disappointed and cannot understand how a supposedly rated hotel operates under such a low standard and has the audacity to… Read more

we stayed here while we were in La. On the beautiful Wilshire boulevard and walking distance from UCLA. Greet room overlooking the city and the famous street. Easy to locate. Parking is around $40. The service was decent and not very helpful

The Kimpton Hotel Palomar greatly exceeded my expectations.

The Kimpton Hotel Palomar greatly exceeded my expectations. In coordinating a space for a videography shoot with their Director, Donald Chock, he and the entire staff honored every request and wish, none too big or small. To say they went above and beyond is not enough. As an overnight guest, the high service continued. The team at their bar/restaurant 'Double Take' dazzled us with their smiles, service, and mixology. Given that the hospitality industry is short staffed overall, and we are opening up from a pandemic, the Kimpton Hotel Palomar did not miss a beat. If you are looking to stay in the Beverly Hills/Los Angeles area, this is a WIN WIN! Read less

This hotel is spotlessly clean. The staff is very friendly and competent, especially the manager Don. When we check in, they remember us. The rooms are spacious. It’s very close to Westwood, UCLA and Beverley Hills. In the morning, we go for lovely walks in the neighborhood.

For starters, its the KIMPTON hotel, but the sign out front read, PALOMAR hotel. So I drove back and forth on Wilshire looking for this place. Very tight parking, with no assistance. Then, one guy doing all the check in. Want coffee? Sure, wait in the long check in line so the one guy can pour you coffee. Now the people waiting behind you to check… Read more
For starters, its the KIMPTON hotel, but the sign out front read, PALOMAR hotel. So I drove back and forth on Wilshire looking for this place. Very tight parking, with no assistance. Then, one guy doing all the check in. Want coffee? Sure, wait in the long check in line so the one guy can pour you coffee. Now the people waiting behind you to check in will get frustrated carrying all their bags while the ONE guy adds sugar and cream to your coffee; and then they wait while he does the same for your partner. Then the disinfectants and what not where dirty and sticky and unclean. They were exactly the same when we checked our. There are other places way nicer, don't waste your time.... and its not cheap..... Read less
