The boutique hotel chain is planning to add not one, but two Los Angeles outposts by next year with the addition of Palihotel Westwood Village and a location in Downtown Culver City, Curbed reported.
In Westwood, the company will repurpose the former Claremont Hotel into a 55-key hotel that will be a “a mix of mid-century modern with Parisian eclecticism set in a historic building.” The property on Tiverton Avenue sold to Shamina Investments for $12.25 million earlier this year. It’s set to open in summer 2018.
Over in Downtown Culver City, a 49-room Palihotel will shape up at Grifka Group‘s 3927 Van Buren Place. A restaurant and bar will sit on the property, which is expected to be “modern and urban with bohemian, French influences throughout.” Grifka Group purchased the site in 2016 for $8.25 million. That will open in fall 2018.
Paligroup, led by Avi Brosh, already operates three locations in SoCal – Palihouses (its luxury brand) can be found in West Hollywood and Santa Monica while a Palihotel (its more affordable option) sits on Melrose. The hotel chain, known for quaint interior decorating, is expanding to Seattle and Miami Beach, as well. [Curbed] – Natalie Hoberman
