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.

We came here due to a fire emergency in Los Angeles. The staff was so helpful with their concern about our plight and the need to also find lounging for our furry family too. They went beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay was top flight. What we also experienced was a boutique hotel with a quality room, food and the other amenities to make any stay worth your while. it's close enough to UCLA, the west side of LA and Beverly Hills. This is a destination hotel for family, business and just hanging out. Read less

Stayed two nights at the Kimpton. Overall good experience, rooms are nice size and comfortable. Lobby has comfy chairs for lounging and mingling. One drawback is the rooms do not have a coffee machine so you need to wander downstairs in the morning to get your caffeine.

My wife and I stayed here for my wife's birthday. Beautiful facilities, small personal staff that paid close attention to any needs we had. We stayed in their beautiful Skyline View Spa Suite. Highly recommend that room, great working jacuzzi tub and great view of the city. Very kind and welcoming staff. Will definitely be back.
