The Palazzo Communities

My wife and I moved into a second floor unit right on 3rd street at Palazzo East in February '06 and were astounded by the level of street noise that came into our apartment. There was no way we could live there so we asked our leasing agent to move us into a new, more quiet apartment, which he graciously did. <br><br>After that, things were perfect at Palazzo East. Sure you'll get noise from lawn mowers, dogs, children, and movers, but that's all part of living in the densely populated mid-wilshire district (which has some of the highest traffic levels in all of Los Angeles). We sleep with a fan on and don't hear a thing throughout the night, that's all it took to cut out those noises. <br><br>When walking through the property, there is almost no noise. Considering the central location of the property, this is amazing. The property is always well manicured and the gym and spa are incredibly clean and nice. Guests who visited me would always comment that I was probably living at one of the nicest apartment complexes in LA. The dog park is also a HUGE plus, as my dog loved to socialize with other doggies when he had to do his business. <br><br>The staff was also very accommodating to me considering how busy they were. Dry-cleaners onsite was a definite plus, as was the business center. Free bottled water from the spa and free fruit, blended coffee, bottled water, and apple cider as well. The free saturday morning breakfasts were a real treat as they had two different kinds of scrambled eggs, bacon, french toast, bagels, fruit, and orange juice. They also had a poker night, free ice cream nights, and wine and cheese nights that were all complimentary. Many people might say, "this is the least they could do considering the price of rent", which does make sense. However, it was very nice to be able to invite friends over and show them what a nice apartment complex we lived in. <br><br>The apartment themselves are nothing special. We were in a one bedroom, which to be frank is pretty small. The berber carpet was nice, and the bathroom was good sized, but the design is weird considering there was no door on our tiny bedroom which barely even held our cal king sized bed (maybe thats our fault for having such a huge bed!). <br><br>Maintenance was outstanding and would fix anything no matter how big or small the same day of the request. <br><br>Drawbacks: couldn't leave my patio door open because smoke would come in from the neighbors, but how is that Palazzo's fault? Also, they only allow directv in there, not cable, so you have to sign a long term agreement with directv, which blows, since I hate satellite. <br><br>Parking is excellent, if you dont mind tandem. It is gated and well secured as far as I could tell. <br><br>Got most of my security deposit back too so was pretty satisfied with that. <br><br>If you can get a decent deal to live in one of these units, then I would do it. During the summer, it is a fantastic place to live in Los Angeles and such a great location. I would highly recommend it!
