Palihouse in West Hollywood

Last week I finally had the pleasure of checking out Palihouse, a boutique hotel in the heart of West Hollywood. The thing that sets Palihouse apart from many of the neighboring hotels is that it is known more as an "urban lodge" and offers a "residential-style" stay.  The hotel has furnished pied-a-terres that can be rented for up to six-twelve month stays, along with one bedroom and loft residences, and if looking to stay just for a night or few days, the traditional guest suite. The hotel also has a courtyard brasserie for dining, an espresso bar, a lobby lounge, and a rooftop deck for special events. So last Thursday after the Restoration Hardware store opening, my friends and I headed over to Palihouse to meet up with Raymond, the Public Relations Manager for Palihouse and his friend Kristen for a drink...and to take a look at the hotel!

Walking into the lobby off the busy West Hollywood streets, I felt like I'd been transported into an old world Parisian style space, with an industrial Bohemian vibe all mixed into one. The lobby is filled with vintage art and furnishings, chairs upholstered in distressed leather, dark walnut finishes, and a Morooccan tiled floor.

The cozy lobby lounge where we hung out and had drinks last week.

Another view of the lobby lounge, hanging out here feels like you're in your own living room.  If you are looking for a more intimate spot to have a drink, this would be it!

The interior courtyard restaurant, "Courtyard Brasserie" serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.

Pretty spot for brunch or lunch too!

There is also private dining inside.
