The Palihouse is right in the middle of Santa Monica, which is probably still the prettiest beach and town area of Los Angeles. At the Palihouse you find 38 stylishly furnished rooms & suites. Even nicer: The house has a great history. They were embassy apartments since 1927 and in 2001 it was placed under the monument protection act by the town of Santa Monica.
Now it is a hotel that bears the handwriting of Avi Brosh.
Avi Brosh is the boss of Paligroup, a hotel group headquartered in L.A. Avi is basically the Creative Art Director of the venture. He personally selects the furniture and also makes sure, that the barkeeper wears the right shirt when mixing the drinks in the evening. Over the last few years, this wasn’t always the case in the United States. The Palisociety group has now expanded to nine hotels in California, one in Seattle / Washington and another property in Portland / Oregon.
Further brownie points at Palihouse Santa Monica: WiFi is available everywhere free of charge, the mini bars are stocked by Dean & Deluca (they are known to everyone who has ever been to New York or on Broadway), you sleep in cavernous European beds, the walls are covered with truly pretty wallpaper from Abnormals Anonymus and – sure, we aren’t that far from Hollywood – there’s valet parking, because even foreign guests usually rent a car in Los Angeles (ultimately to spend all day in a traffic jam on the 405, but, so far so good …).
Pretty hotels tip
If the Palihouse is a little too expensive for you, you can detour to Palihouse West Hollywood or Palihotel Melrose. They also belong to the Avi Brosh group and we would recommend a stay.
Because it’s located on Third Street, it’s only three blocks to the the water, the Pacific Ocean.
Doubles from about 400 euros per night.
