The New Palihotel Westwood Village Is Our Designer's Favorite Hotel in Los Angeles

A mix of mid-century modern with Parisian vibes, all set in a charming historic building – Palisociety's newest property is poised to be the most stylish, design-forward hotel in Westwood Village and we're so excited to share. Palihotel Westwood Village is the newest addition to the brand's eclectically styled and neighborhood-oriented hotels. The new property joins the collection of five other newly opened properties in 2018 and 2019 – Palihotel Seattle which just might be the coolest boutique hotel in Seattle, Palihotel Culver City which is Culver City's first boutique hotel, and other properties coming soon such as Miami Beach and San Francisco. Of course, all were a part of The Venue Report's Hottest New Hotel Openings Across of 2019. I recently got an exclusive first look into the new Westwood Village location and, shocker, I'm already referring to it as my favorite hotel in Los Angeles. 

The Location

Centrally located on a quiet street in the heart of Westwood Village, near UCLA and the Wilshire Corridor, the hotel’s prime location offers easy and convenient access to Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Brentwood, Santa Monica and beyond. It's the perfect location for a weekend getaway when planning sight-seeing all over the city. Walk to check out an exhibit at The Hammer Museum, dine at their newly opened restaurant, Audrey, or book at a table down the street at my personal favorite, Jon & Vinny's for the most amazing pizza you'll ever have while dining among celebrities.

The Design

Housed in a historic 1939 property that was the first hotel to open in Westwood Village (formerly the Claremont Hotel), Palihotel Westwood Village is now reimagined into a stylish neighborhood inn featuring a creative blend of mid-century modern and Parisian eclecticism. The walls are awash in the most perfect soft grey with detailed crown molding and the upholstered sofas and lounge chairs welcome you to a sophisticated, yet urban location. The rooms are highly-stylized with Scandinavian-inspired, Sherpa-covered headboards and a color palette of neutral tones of grey, cream, white and taupe that work together to achieve a vintage yet contemporary feel. Suites feature bay-windows looking out onto a peaceful courtyard or a fire escape converted to a small patio for guests observe the neighborhood or read a book from.
