Overview

Stunning, historic property with excellent service
Some noise from remodeling

If you’re looking for a unique and captivating experience in California, look no further than the Palihouse Santa Monica. This boutique property has been named a Santa Monica Historic Landmark because of its Moorish-influenced, Mediterranean-revival architecture. Guests have their choice of 38 rooms where creative and old-world details were essential during their design – custom furnishings, unique wallpaper and photo-worthy windows. Rooms also include high-tech amenities, including flat-screen TVs, stocked minifridges and free Wi-Fi access. Walk through the hotel’s garden or enjoy a meal at the on-site restaurant, which serves free continental breakfast on weekends and sources ingredients from the nearby Santa Monica Farmers Market. Recent guests rave about the above-and-beyond customer service and historic feel, but they were disappointed that remodeling was happening during their stays.

The light-flooded lobby is equal parts workspace and hangout, and the loft-like rooms, with their Dean & DeLuca provisions and full equipped kitchens, lend a decidedly residential feel.
