Palihouse Santa Monica, Santa Monica
Gorgeous and Unique. Quiet. Lots of character
Very unique! Gorgeous, well preserved and kept 1920s building. Chic, eclectic style and ambiance. Old California/Hollywood meets hip modern. Lovely staff. Walking in hallways feels like being in the film “Barton Fink.” Very quiet. Good for meetings. Very Clean, comfortable room. Didn’t know what to do with all the pillows! Excellent overall experience, LOVE it

Very Good8.0
Great! but question value 4 amenities shortcoming
Great place to stay for a weekend getaway. The place is not unlike the Georgian a handful of blocks away. Given the price they are charging, the property does not have in-house dining amenities. Definitely a hipster type vibe. The rating is a reflection of amenities and value for the pricing.

Very Good8.0
Lovely property in a great location but in need of some updates. There is no AC but not a climate problem with the windows open, except for the people talking on the patio late evening and early AM. Very charming. Excellent breakfast and great staff. We chose this as an overnight/ day stay before a flight to Australia rather than a blah airport hotel near LAX

Gorgeous, Historic Getaway
This was a seriously magnificent stay. I had booked a standard queen room but upon arrival was notified that I was given a penthouse suite! This hotel felt a little bit spooky from its historical age but the updates were beautiful, kind of like a mildly eerie Anthropologie. Luxe furniture, gorgeous mirrored vanity room, amazingly beautiful bathroom, and two huge sets of french doors that flanked the plush bed. 10/10 would stay again. This was seriously dreamy and made an otherwise mildly stressful trip really enjoyable. Valet was a breeze, as well! Only negative comment is that for some reason there wasn't a coffee maker in the room, perhaps because it wouldn't have jived well with the aesthetic. In any case, was happy to hop downstairs to enjoy a quick cup from the in-lobby coffee bar.

Santa Monica's Best Hotel
Palihouse is the best hotel in Santa Monica, and its staff is the best in the city. My wife and I love it there, and the only place we will stay in when we're in town.
