5/5 rating. Customer service from the moment we arrived was exceptional. From the valet parking attendent to the property manger, Hector. Staff on Christmas Day was welcoming and professional. ||Overnight parking cost was expected $$. Property was peaceful with a little bit of vintage and modern decor. The shrimp tacos and shrimp ceviches portions was just right and full of flavor. Even their coffee stood out! Overall, we had an absolutle memorable experience. ||We will definitely try the Palihouse experience again, maybe just in a different city! And yes, that is true; Palihouse have multiple locations throughout California.

What a find. We loved the Palihouse Santa Monica. We were staying at another Santa Monica hotel and not really vibing with it. We called into the Palihouse and the manager Hector gave us a tour - we changed hotels next day!||It has the vibe of a relaxed, chilled hotel - the rooms have an apartment feel, with kitchen and living area and plenty of space to make yourself feel at home.||Our room had amazing views of the ocean, and we had the French doors open for fresh air in the mornings and afternoons.||Hector and his team were so lovely and welcoming! Shout out to Javier and Jacquelin for being so awesome and helpful - and the incredible Housekeeping team. Our room was always super clean (and I'm so particular!!)||The hotel is three blocks from beach, Third Street Promenade a quick stroll away and only a few blocks from our fave Montana Ave (plenty of restaurant/cafe choices) - plus there's a Pavillions on Montana if you want to stock up on some items for the kitchen in your room.||We will be back (for a longer stay) soon.||Thanks to everyone at Palihouse Santa Monica for making our stay so easy and enjoyable.
