I travel to Los Angeles quite a bit for work and I usually stay at my home away from home, the Sunset Tower Hotel. But I found a too-good-to-be-true deal on jetsetter.com for the Palihouse Holloway Hotel and couldn’t pass it up. Not only is this a great little boutique hotel that’s centrally located, but each room comes with a fully equipped kitchen that makes you feel more like a local and less like a visiting tourist.
The hotel was decorated the holidays and I thought I’d share some pics for you, like this fresh pine decorated entrance to the hotel.
The lobby has less of a hotel feel and more of a Parisian, boho-chic, relaxed vibe. Antiques filled with books, stacks of books everywhere, random candles, plants and curiouis things just dot the place with plenty of places to sit, have a drink and relax.
It would be great if this hotel existed in NYC, because on a cold, blustery Sunday, it would be nice to meet friends here and take part in their unlimited $25 promotion: brunch and unlimited drinks. Not sure I want to push binging, but–hey—it is the holiday season and those Bloody Mary’s or Mimosas can add up!
Anyway, I love this oversized piece of art in the lobby that features vintage Polaroids all neatly framed together.
Cork covered walls here and there feature “inspiration” photos, tear sheets and visuals that somehow work. Kinda reminds me of my craft room at home with all of my inspiration photos. This might be way I’m fond of this place….
Anyway, off to work I go and here’s what I see in LA:
Chik-fil-A is opening their first LA restaurant and celebrated by having workers dressed like cows bulldozing down the place. At Sunset and Highland, naturally. The signs “eat more chik’n” were everywhere and crowds watched a cow bulldozed down an old burger joint to make way for the new place. Here’s my thought: how about “eat more vegetables” and not any chicken or beef?
Only in LA, folks. Only. In. LA.
