La Peer is said to be the most luxurious of all the Kimpton hotels in the LA area, and after staying at the Everly earlier in the year, I was quite curious to compare the two. I loved the Everly and their design is still one of my favorites around town, however the moment you step into La Peer, you can see the immediate difference.Read More
The hotel itself blends design elements of rustic and elegance from the lobby to the rooms, beautiful interior selections and spacious rooms. However, with most boutique hotels, it isn’t a huge property and therefore, the one thing I believe they do need to improve upon is their staff.Read More
Alongside our welcome tray was hand-written postcard from the front desk welcoming me. Sure, notes are standard for guests but this postcard also had little hand drawn graphics of all the places I visited on my last trip in Portland - places I blogged about in this post.

Drive right up to the valet and allow them to open the door to your next getaway. The staff's friendly smiles and attentiveness will make you feel warm and welcomed as soon as you step onto the property.

Hidden behind the big wooden door is the entrance to Hotel Palomar in downtown San Diego. While it is within walking distance to a few favorited spots of the locals, it can be a bit deceiving to locate as it's wedged in the middle of the block. Make sure to look for the wooden door and the friendly valet guys in front so you don't miss it. (Note: valet is a 3rd party service and has a texting option to retrieve your car).Read More
