Grand Pacific Palisades Resort - Frequently Asked Questions

BOOK DIRECT IS BEST!  It's highly recommended to always book directly through the properties website or call center for the best availability, rates, room types, and flexibility if unforeseen changes occur.

However bookings made through third party websites must be changed or canceled (if an option) though the same channel as it was booked.  The hotel is unfortunately unable to assist with any changes to these types of bookings.
