Hotel and staff were fabulous. Hotel is centrally located to get anywhere in the city. My only word of caution, don't stay in a room surrounding the Dirty Habit Lounge if you plan to be sleeping before midnight.

The Palomar is an above average property that stands out due to the staff. Accessible from BART and an easy walk to Union Square and the Ferry Building it was the front desk/bell staff and concierge that really set this property above other places we have stayed in San Francisco

We recently spent five nights at this OK downtown hotel. The rooms were spotless but small (to be expected). On the plus side was the extremely helpful staff (Jennifer the Concierge was awesome) and the comfy beds. On the "minus" side was the extremely small bar where one could not get in without a reservation, the fact that one of... More

The hotel is in a great spot to take advantage of the Westfield Mall a short walk away. The Hotel has great views of the street life below. Good hotel for more the adult traveler or family, not as kid friendly. The staff was nice and friendly and willing to assist you whenever they can.

I spent weeks trying to pick out the perfect hotel in San Francisco and I couldn't seem to pull the trigger. There were a handful of great hotels in great locations that all seemed to have the right characteristics. After reading through the reviews for the 100th time, I decided on the Kimpton Palomar. I'm so glad that I did.... More

Thanks for the positive praise of the team and hotel. You'll also be happy to hear that I have been meeting with contractors for additional sound proof measures to be taken around our windows. Typically noise isn't a challenge, yet we are trying to get ahead of it, as this part of town is taking off....actually, this part of town... More

Stayed in a Suite on the 5th floor right across from the hotel bar. It could get noisy but we still were able to sleep. The staff that work in the lobby were awesome, helpful and friendly. WIne hour was always good but the lobby is small, which, can make for intimate conversations with anyone. The concierge(all of them)was super... More

I stayed at the Palomar. Both weekends the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. When I checked in the 2nd weekend the gentleman at the desk remembered me. When I got to my room there was a hand written note welcoming me back along with a complimentary bottle of wine and some snacks. So thoughtful. Love this... More

I stayed here one night on business. My room had a jacuzzi tub which was awesome and I enjoyed it immensely after a long day, with a free glass of wine available during the wine hour (5:00-6:00). Staff was very friendly especially the girl staffing the wine hour, and the wine was pretty decent. Room was clean and bed and... More

We love the Palomar in Phoenix so we decided to stay here for our weekend in San Francisco. Wow!! The room and staff were spectacular!! The jaccuzi tub was amazing after walking up those San Fran hills all day. A cool added touch is a goldfish who resides in the room. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. We loved... 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.
