If a French brasserie, a 1930s Moroccan dance hall, a grand British library and a hipster loft had a baby, it would be the lobby lounge at Palihouse Holloway. The clubhouse-style hang on Holloway Drive manages to feel expertly curated — a vintage rocking horse here, a metal birdcage there — but exceedingly inviting, thanks to plush sofas draped in throw blankets, a candle-filled fireplace and DJ-spun tunes.
Bed and Bath
Even the smallest Classic Suite at Palihouse is 700 square feet. The apartment-style spaces have fully stocked kitchenettes and in-room washer/dryers. Exposed brick walls and minimalist appointments including flower-filled windowboxes complete the homey feel — if home were a sprawling L.A. loft. Carrera marble bathrooms have rain showers and Damana products in such fragrances as olive oil and orange.
Guests and locals alike kick it in the Lobby Lounge, which serves pumpkin-spiced pancakes and Devonshire cream oatmeal in the morning and chill bites and cocktails at night. The Astroturf rooftop, peppered with couches and picnic tables, is a great place to sip cocktails as the sun sets over downtown and the Hollywood Hills. The Palihouse Courtyard Brasserie serves market-fresh seasonal fare (think beer-battered prawns with piquillo pepper marmalade and smoked paprika aioli) under the stars.
In the Area
The hotel sits on Holloway Drive, a short stretch of West Hollywood that most Angelenos use to zip from Santa Monica to Sunset Boulevard. It’s shared most notably with Barney’s Beanery, a music industry hangout. If you’re inspired by the hotel’s design, the neighborhood is home to some of the West Coast’s top interiors shops, including the Pacific Design Center and the Avenues of Arts & Design. If clothes are more your retail poison, zip over to designer shopping mecca Fred Segal, which has a hip café so you can refuel during your buying binge. Grab a picnic lunch and head out to the Getty Center, which is 20 minutes away, to walk the museum and take in the panoramic views of the city. For a taste of old-school L.A., book a table at checkered-tablecloth retro Italian joint Dan Tana’s (oh, hello there, Mr. Clooney).
How to Get There
Booked this hotel room last minute on Hotels tonight and got a really good deal. Check in was smooth, quick and Michael O was extremely courteous and did a great job assisting with the process. We got upgraded to a suite in the room was rather large. There was an outside balcony with a washer and dryer at our disposal. The bathroom bed refrigerator kitchen area and entire room was immaculate. I checked due to the fact the previous reviews stated rooms were not clean. I found the room to be thoroughly clean. We really enjoyed the decor and the furnishings in this room didn’t appear all that dated or worn. Felt more like a nice apartment as compared to a hotel. Would stay again in a minute.
Amazing location, staff and rooms. The suite was spacious and felt very unique. The entire property has an intimate feel and a European vibe. Rooftop bar has a great view and excellent cocktails. Will definitely be back to stay here again.
We stayed at a “residence” style suite. It was large and beautiful! Very clean, modern and quiet. Will stay again! Perfect location too. We didn’t get to try the food, but it looked yummy. The staff is friendly and there is a homey feeling-people working on laptops in the common area which opens onto a sunlit courtyard restaurant.
