A hop, skip and a jump from UCLA’s Westwood campus, the new Pali Hotel Westwood Village sits just off the main pedestrian-friendly area on a leafy and quiet residential street. A charming Parisian-style façade with a red and white awning, checkered tile entryway and perfectly manicured landscaping fronts the historic building, which was once home to Westwood Village’s very first hotel which opened in 1939.
The 55-room boutique hotel features design-forward rooms and an eclectic mix of midcentury-meets-modern style with boutique amenities like Smeg fridges, custom bath products and a daily complimentary breakfast. There’s a stylish communal kitchen in the lobby, tons of lounge space and a calm outdoor courtyard that feels more like visiting a private Parisian estate than a Los Angeles hotel.
There's no bar or restaurant, but there are dozens of dining options in Westwood's walkable village. The Hammer Museum around the corner showcases modern art for free, and the Westwood Village Memorial Park, home to Marilyn Monroe's grave, is a five-minute walk. Beverly Hills' famous Rodeo Drive is about a 15-minute drive from the hotel, and the beaches of Santa Monica are about 20-30 minutes, depending on traffic.
