Highs + Lows

  • Standard rooms are spacious with well stocked kitchen tools (even a blender!) washer/drier, and an empty fridge making it great for long-term stays.

  • Staff is great with small details, like mentioning the wifi password at check-in and confirming the name of the graffiti artist who created the mural in the courtyard for me.

  • Abundance of hang-out space in the lobby, equal parts private and communal (and a foosball table to boot).

  • Window looking straight into the bathroom from our living room with a perfect view of the toilet.

  • Food & service in the restaurant was average.

I used to think LA lacked character, but charming spots like Palihouse, just a block off the flashy Sunset Strip, feel like home to a recent East Coast transplant.
