Palihotel Culver CityWhy we love it: An Art Deco-inspired boutique stay
- Simonette, an all-day café, bar, and bistro
- Art Deco décor that recalls the building’s 1920s roots
- A reasonably priced hotel in the heart of downtown Culver City
The fourth hotel from continually growing LA-based mini chain Palisociety, this 49-room boutique hotel celebrates its building’s 1920s-era roots with a design that maintains its original Art Deco influences. And its Culver City location brings attention to this sleepy, untouristed enclave steeped with cinematic history. Rooms incorporate wood paneling with jewel tones, plaid, and comfy floral chairs, and some have French doors that open onto the hotel’s inner courtyard. Classic and contemporary art is intentionally placed and carefully selected and retro details like a rotary dial phone sitting on the desk complete the ambience. Amenities include oversized robes, a minbar stocked with local snacks, and in-room tablets featuring curated neighborhood guides, room service, and more.
The hotel houses Simonette, a indoor-outdoor restaurant and bar with a leafy courtyard and cobalt blue walls that match the impeccably restored Art Deco facade of the building—one wall of which is painted with an eye-catching floral design. Simonette is an all-day bistro and bar inspired by classic French neighborhood cafés. From early morning espresso to an ice-cold Rosé at happy hour to a lunch and dinner menu with items like moules frite and a barbecue mushroom sandwich, Simonette makes a perfect hangout spot when the room starts to feel a little too cozy.
