"Feels a little tired"
Fairly disappointing. We arrived to find prior guests' trash in the bathroom, stains on the toilet seat, and pillows with crud stuck to them. The front desk staff were concerned and promised to follow up, but they never did — though our room was at least cleaned properly following the conversation. Beyond that, the pool was a mess (trash and used towels everywhere). And the air conditioning system was so loud, at least in our room, that it actually woke me up in the night! Overall, the hotel just feels tired. If you're looking for a Kimpton property in LA, the Wilshire is definitely a better bet.
"Kimptons @ Kimpton"
It had to be done... While it's true that we booked this hotel solely based on novelty value, we were incredibly impressed. From early bag drop through to check out, the staff were friendly and approachable. We were travelling with our three children, and the Kimpton kids program delivered a fish to our room. The room was beautifully appointed, the beds were comfortable and the meals we ate in the restaurant were lovely.
"Everything nice, but theres no breakfast buffet"
The room and the service are great. But being european, i´m used to having buffet breakfast included in the night price. Considering this, the price is maybe a little bit too high . It has a little gym, small but well equiped.
"Modern gem in Westwood"
This hotel, as all kimptons are, was exceptionally clean, had impeccable service, and was very hip and modern. Had a wonderful stay, with an infant in tow. The front desk staff went above and beyond, valet was very timely and kind, and the room had some pretty fantastic city views. Overall, top notch. Location is good for UCLA, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and not far from the 405.
Recently stayed at the Palomar in LA. My flight and cab had me arriving a little later than expected. I inquired about a private space where I could complete a conference call (there was a line waiting to check in). The gentleman who helped me, I wish I would have asked his name, got me a key so I could go and sit by the pool for my call. He knew it was quiet that time of day and it was a beautiful October afternoon in LA. Check in was a breeze and to make it even better, they offer a free hour of wine in the lobby every night! I would definitely stay there again if I needed to be in the Westwood or Beverly Hills area.
