Generally enjoy our stays at Palihouse Santa Monica, but this visit we had an early 5:30am departure and there was no one at the front desk to grab our valet keys when we checked out. Waited 15-20 min, called the main line a half dozen times, checked all the public spaces… and not a soul manning the front desk. We had to rummage through the valet pantry to find our keys and self-checkout or miss our flight… not a pretty look for the hotel this visit.

The front desk staff were friendly and wonderful, the lobby was exquisite and that is where is ended. The room smelled so badly, it could've been the old carpet, unsure. We could hear every footstep, movement from the person above us. The rooms need an overhaul.

Excellent staff and hotel
Excellent boutique hotel offering the most friendly staff and unique room. We stayed here during our honeymoon tour down the west coast and will definitely be back. The staff was very welcoming and helped make our stay even more memorable. The hotel we can’t say enough good things about however the city is slightly not the safest walkable town we have visited. Apparently the pandemic has changed this about the city. Would recommend taking a cab or Uber vs walking late at night or on the pier.

LA Charmer!
Most amazing stay! Luis is an incredible manager - every accommodation was made for us while we held meetings. We only stayed one night but will definitely become home away from home on all our trips to LA. Great little kitchen, and the place has such a great style about it - the lobby, the outside areas...

The location is fabulous and they have bikes that you can use to ride around. Lovely old world feel to the property. We had a Studio King large room with kitchen and small balcony. Would stay again.

I got flea-bitten by the wool blanket on the bed. I went to bed with just the sheet and the end of bed blanket over it and immediately got four sharp bites to my left inside upper arm. I threw off the blanket hoping it wasn't something nasty like a spider but I couldn't find it in the bed. No more bites that night but in the morning the bites were definitely flea bites - four red, raised intensely itchy bumps, not mosquitos for sure - perhaps since dogs stay at the hotel? In any case I've only had flea bites once before and these persisted for the whole week. The power and cell service was out the next day in Santa Monica so I had to leave without talking to management. I sent them a review but didn't hear back, so I want other travelers to be forewarned not to use the blankets. It's a shame because the hotel is really lovely and European and the service is wonderful.

The size of the room was fabulous, but the size of the bathroom was small and the bathrub was not usable due to peeling paint, which i brought up to the hotel but they did not change my room. The valets and front desk staff were very nice.
