This hotel located in the residential area of Santa Monica, just three blocks from the beach, is today as sought-after as the famous Château Marmont. Less flashy than some options of the same sort, the Palihouse is in a 1927 building, a sublime example of Mediterranean Revival architecture. In this hotel, the founder of the very visible Paligroup pays homage to Los Angeles with a melting-pot decor, reflecting the cultural mix of the city.
Here modernist style cohabits with very 1950s lines, and vintage objects are side by side with modern trinkets, like a porcelain dog proudly on display in the lobby and salon. In the same room, you can have breakfast, brunch or just read your book, like in a real family home. You will find the same feeling in the rooms: “toile de Jouy” reappears as wallpaper by Abnormals Anonymous and design objects contrast with old telephones, still-life paintings or hunting trophies. An alien ship at home in the landscape of Los Angeles!
