A convivial lobby and smartly designed rooms set this Kimpton-managed hotel apart from other chain hotels; and because of its proximity to UCLA, the Palomar also attracts those visiting the sprawling university for business and students' friends and families. An ergonomic work chair and desk space that's user-friendly plus the 24-hour business center aid efficiency; the on-demand yoga, meditation, and Pilates channels on TV, and yoga mat in-room, promote relaxation. Recycling bins and eco-conscious practices abound. Blvd 16 is the hotel's ambitious restaurant offering organic, market-fresh fare. Complimentary morning coffee and tea and a hosted nightly wine hour bring guests together. Pets are pampered with many services without additional fees.
