Expert Review

Opened in May 2008 and located just two blocks from the UCLA campus in Westwood, the 19-story, 268-room Hotel Palomar is located smack between trendy West Hollywood and the Santa Monica Beach, about 6 miles (a 15-minute drive) in either direction. Both eco- and pet-friendly, this addition to the boutique-minded Kimpton Hotel chain offers locally grown produce and sustainable seafood at BLVD 16 (seasonal menu). Take a dip in the outdoor pool before exploring Westwood, the closest thing to a college-town L.A. has to offer. Rooms feature multi-textured details like geometric wallpaper and towering, charcoal-colored headboards, while the lobby includes curvaceous '70s-era couches. While not located in the most bustling L.A. neighborhood, this hotel is a wise choice if you're looking for an environmentally friendly stay and/or a place to crash with your four-legged friend.
