Palihouse Santa Monica in Los Angeles
Housed in a 1927 Spanish Colonial Revival–style structure, clubby sophistication is the name of the game at this Santa Monica hotel. Frescoed ceilings, leaded glass windows, and deep and intimate banquettes all feel authentic to the era; new additions, from wingback chairs to Chesterfield sofas, offer the perfect spot to raise a glass to the end of a great year—and the beginning of another.
