The Palihotel on Melrose Now Opening February 1st

A few months ago we discussed the second coming of the Palihotel on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles from hotelier Avi Brosh. The 32-room hotel with a "European inn" vibe was set to open in February and guess what, it's actually opening on the very first day of next month.
The hotel's website is touting a pre-opening special of $150 a night but for February 1, we could only find rooms at $199 a night for a queen bedroom. Meanwhile Jetsetter.com is hyping stays for just $115 a night on February 1st. Definitely the better deal here. (The flash sale site is also saying the hotel is "Just Opened" but we swear it's not opening until February 1.)
All guest rooms at the hotel are equipped with free WiFi, designer bed linens and bathrobes, flat screen TVs, fully stocked minibars (supposedly with Dean & Deluca goodies) and work desks. Some rooms will have private balconies.
There's also a six-bed Thai massage on property as well as a blowout salon that's open to guests and locals. And an even bigger sell for the hotel is its proximity to great shopping on Melrose Avenue. Yes, you can actually walk to the stores from this hotel.
The one bumer is that there are still no room shots on the hotel's website but Jetsetter has a couple of photos and you can see a few other shots of the public spaces on the hotel's Facebook page.
