Los Angeles Wedding Venue
10740 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, California 90024
If you’ve had the pleasure of staying at a Kimpton hotel when you travel, then you know first hand how their commitment to satisfying each guest’s requests takes personalized service to a higher level. Fortunately, this much-lauded collection of boutique hotels includes several in Southern California, and you can enjoy that same special treatment at the Hotel Palomar Los Angeles–Westwood.
Located along the vibrant Wilshire Corridor, the Palomar provides a relaxed cosmopolitan experience. This upscale, high-rise venue is filled with a panoply of visual and tactile delights, and designers love its flexible event spaces. In contrast to the traditional big-city hotel, the Palomar offers an intimate alternative, a place where you and your guests can happily spend an entire weekend.
The VIP treatment lavished on overnight guests is magnified when you host a wedding at the Palomar. Virtually everything can be customized, and yours will be the only wedding event hosted on your special day! Exclusive weddings at the Palomar include access to one of their beautifully appointed function rooms to use as the bridal ready room, complete with private bath and city views.
You get your first taste of the hotel’s sophisticated style in the entry, distinguished by a stunning inlaid wood floor, double-sided marble fireplace, and tall votive candles. The adjacent lobby, called the Living Room, is both chic and comfy, with faux-snakeskin sofas, soft silk banquettes and sinuous, croc-embossed benches. A touch of Japanese influence, a dash of Hollywood Regency glamour and a jolt of eye-catching modern art all meld seamlessly into a hip, but understated, elegance. It’s here that Kimpton’s signature daily wine hour takes place, with hotel managers and a friendly, attentive staff mingling with guests to answer any questions.
BLVD 16, the hotel’s urbane restaurant, is a unique setting for a reception, rehearsal dinner, or post-wedding brunch. Dark wood, rich leather, and the glow from huge pendant lights contribute to a warm, lounge-like atmosphere, while the expert catering staff makes sure your event is flawlessly executed. Executive Chef Richard Hodge works closely with you to create a farm-to-table, locally sourced menu (and then actually prepares your meal himself), and Palomar’s in-house pastry chef can design your custom wedding cake! Seasonal and inventive, the catering cuisine incorporates the same modern twists to old favorites that have made the hotel’s restaurant a magnet for locals.
Another option for special events is the Premiere Ballroom, located on the first floor of the Hotel. This clean-lined, modern space features a prefunction area with floor-to-ceiling windows and soft lounge seating that’s perfect for a cocktail reception. The ballroom foyer is bathed in natural light and comes with its own cozy outdoor patio. State-of-the-art sound and lighting systems in the main room allow you to vary the mood, from whimsical to romantic.
After the festivities, enjoy a private toast in your exquisite suite—furnished with Frette linens, a double soaking tub and organic toiletries—as you savor the spectacular vistas of Westside landmarks sparkling below. For an extra-memorable weekend, have the staff map out an itinerary with visits to Beverly Hills, Santa Monica beaches, the Getty Museum, or whatever you’d like. Why not? At this gem of a hotel, the experience is truly all about you.
1/3 of the minimum catering revenue is required to reserve your date and the balance is due 10 days prior to the event. Rental fees start at $250 and vary depending on the food and beverage minimum. Meals range $57–74/person. Tax, alcohol and a 21% service charge are additional.
