Great eclectic decor and comfy common areas in a beautiful old building and very nice service with cool staff members... but a really ridiculously small bathroom and the room service food comes from a restaurant outside the hotel.

It used to be Embassy Hotel Apartments. It became Palihouse in 2013 I believe.

You have to valet you car or park on the street, which can be dicey. Upon reflection I’d say this is a great location. But it is funky. I’d stay here again, it’s old LA.
