Wonderful smaller hotel with boutique-y feel. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant! Clean rooms with beautiful common areas (check out the second floor)!

Wonderful smaller hotel with boutique-y feel. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant! Clean rooms with beautiful common areas (check out the second floor)! Conner super helpful when I requested a coffee maker in the room (due to our v early wake up calls before coffee service began on the second floor) - Also, Cornelia was always smiling and full of great helpful hints on places to eat and answers to all our questions! Would definitely stay here again! Hotel roof pool and patio area are beautiful and worth a visit! PS _ if you stay here - you MUST eat at the sushi handroll bar called Kazunori one block down!! The BEST!! Read less

Stayed here overnight for a weekend trip to LA from Vancouver. I loved the location, the spacious suite/room/bathroom, the views from the hotel especially the rooftop view, the toiletries in the bathroom, the tasteful interior décor, the valet service and the exceptional staff who made my stay memorable with their efficient service and delightful surprises for my birthday weekend celebration. These surprises included a suite upgrade (booked a Sunset suite and got upgraded to a Santa Monica suite so I will have a dining area to host friends who visited for dinner) and a complimentary cava wine that came with a bowl of snacks and a birthday card for me. I really felt special. And all my friends who visited me were so impressed with the hotel as well and noted how excellent everything was. I am now looking forward to my next stay here. Special shout out to Corneilia for her top notch service- from her welcome text, to the birthday surprise/s, to her help in filling my drinking water jar, up to my checkout the next day...many thanks Corneilia! Areas of improvement: I would have preferred a normal ice machine and not a fridge with packaged ice. Also, the breakfast food at the rooftop bar was so-so and could be improved. Read less

I stayed here visiting friends in LA. It's a good location, 10-15 minute drive to a lot of different places. Not great if you want something walkable to shops, dining, etc. but a short Uber/Lyft from some great neighborhoods. The pool is tiny but if you can grab one of the four lounge chairs it's a nice place to relax for a few hours and have… Read more
I stayed here visiting friends in LA. It's a good location, 10-15 minute drive to a lot of different places. Not great if you want something walkable to shops, dining, etc. but a short Uber/Lyft from some great neighborhoods. The pool is tiny but if you can grab one of the four lounge chairs it's a nice place to relax for a few hours and have service from the bar/restaurant for lunch or drinks. As some other reviewers have mentioned, it isn't necessarily where you go if you're looking for a destination pool, but I liked it for an afternoon in the sun. The first room I had was not cleaned very well (it looked clean but there were a few things out of place compared to the second room) and the AC did not work. I called the front desk and they sent someone up to check it out, and ended up moving me to a nicer room, which I appreciated. You'll get all the usual perks of Kimptons and though this one was not necessarily my favorite one, it definitely suited my purposes. Read less

My friend told me about the rooftop restaurant so I thought I should come and check it out. I’m so happy I did! From the beginning to the end of my time there I felt nothing but good energy from the staff. The valet attendants were very helpful and nice. The tall, light, African American guy was really helpful and answered any questions I had. I think his name was Keith or something with a K. The staff at the restaurant were very prompt and friendly as well. I will definitely be returning. Read less
