The hotel is supremely located! We walked almost everywhere, the few times we took a cab it was roughly $10. The staff was awesome! Especially the concierges Bobby and Mark as well as Adam the Hotel Manager. A valuable item was lost during our stay (child's precious sleep blanket) and while it hasn't been found as of yet the entire... More

I stayed for one night and wish I could have stayed longer. In addition to being a great value, and in the perfect location, the hotel pays attention to the details. From a warm greeting upon check-in, to excellent recognition of being a Kimpton Karma rewards member, this hotel strives to exceed its guests’ expectations. For Inner Circle members this... More

The Palomar was excellent! From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by very pleasant workers. The rooms are immaculate and spatious! I was there for my birthday, and the next day there was a bottle of wine for us in the room which was a very nice gesture! We enjoyed the bottle of wine on the terrace the... More

This was our 4th stay at Palomar in 4 years. The first 2 times we stayed, we really enjoyed it. The 3rd time and 4th times were just ok. The staff was super friendly as always. The food at Sable is really good and the atmosphere is great--- for breakfast and lunch. After 9pm it becomes really crowded and impossible... More

My title says it all. The wine and apples at 5pm is great and its all Free. The hotel itself is small but quaint. The location is center city and you can walk over where. Aside from the pricey rooms its worth it cause you can drink wine for 2 hrs straight for FREE
