We stayed here for 4 nights over Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect. Close to shopping, food, the BART, and Union Square. Our room had two beds. The beds were small. (Not queen.) We had to ask for extra pillows. The room size was sufficient for our party of 4. The hotel has coffee and... More

Concierge was very helpful. Found us a wonderful Italian restaurant and a seafood place. Explained cable cars and bus services. Booked our bus tours, made our dinner reservations. A fountain of San Francisco knowledge. Our rooms were very clean and quiet. If you like quiet, suggest the 9th floor. There is a bar and restaurant on the 5th or 6th... More

Great location. Close to everything. The lobby was really cool. There was four of us and I was expecting two queen beds however I was unpleasantly surprised to see that they were both full beds. The bathroom was tiny as well. I understand $/sqft is very high right now however it seemed deceiving to have such small beds. If you... More

I've stayed at several hotels in this area when on business trips and this has become my go-to hotel. Great location and the staff has always been very helpful with restaurant recommendations, directions, and getting me a cab at 4am for an early flight. The hotel is very comfortable and the restaurant in the hotel is very good. Also, the... More

I wish we had spent more than one night here! Convenient, lovely and close to some great food. We had a wonderful stay after a long flight, slept like a baby. Woke to an amazing view. Highly recommend this for location and for comfort.

A trendy, compact hotel, the Palomar is located in an ideal spot on 4th Ave. just off Market Street in San Francisco. Our room was small and consisted of a king size bed with TV, table and one chair. The bathroom was adequate, and the closet had two comfy robes, one of which I used. The heating system was easy... More

I booked this hotel through my employer's travel booking arm so wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly delighted since I love small boutique hotels instead of large hotel chains. The breakfast was not bad, but I was expecting better Chilaquiles for the Bay area, so I stuck with fried eggs rest of the mornings. The gym was perfect... More

Room was small but the staff was friendly. Great time at the bar. Does need some updating. Rooms need some love. We still had a fabulous time visiting with our friends. Do a room on a high floor. The manager was a great getting us a later checkout.

Maybe it's because of where our room was located, but whatever the case, we won't stay here again unless we are guaranteed another floor. Only in San Fran for one night, headed back to OC from our PCH roadtrip. Hotwired a room, and ended up at Hotel Palomar. Checkin was a breeze, once we finally got there (traffic was a... More

It's my first time staying in this hotel ever but am so satisfied with my room and the staff from day one. The lobby is small but it offers lemon water, coffee and red wine depending on time of the day. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. I asked so many things but I don't see any irritating grin... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
