Hotel Palomar was our last stop on A surprise trip for our 40th wedding anniversary. The entire experience at the Palomar was just perfect. The staff was exceptional and went above and beyond any hotel we've ever stayed at. Right off Market St. and steps from amazing shopping. I want to say "THANK YOU TO EVERYONE at the Palomar". Next...

The Hotel Palomar is a great Kimpton property located at 4th and Market, convenient to shopping in Union Square, museums, Yerba Buena Gardens, and the Moscone Center. It's also an easy walk to the Ferry Building (about 15 minutes), and about 5 minutes to BART, MUNI and the Powell Street Cable Car. The staff here is friendly and helpful, the... More

This hotel was so convenient to Union Square, bus stop, cable cars, trolley and subway system. We took BART from SF airport in the middle of the night and the exit was steps away from the hotel lobby. The staff was so helpful with directions and information. We were there several days and the hotel staff seemed to know who... More

My experience at the hotel palomar in sf was awesome, relaxing, and felt like the perfect getaway for me and my boyfriend. Celebrating our anniversary so glad that I picked this hotel. We stayed in the luxury spa king room and was worth it to pay a little more than a regular room. The whirl pool tub was the high... More

Palomar - San Francisco Arriving at the Palomar San Francisco is a visual cacophony: a flurry of lights and street car tracks (are you in the right lane?) and milling San Francisco homeless. The lobby is stark with a handful of velvet-covered high-backed chairs. The lacking visual and seeming discomfort here is made up for by friendly and efficient valet... More

Like the location, the staff, the bikes and coffee. The bathroom doors are positioned in a bizarre way that you see a toilet from your bed, and at night the light shines through around the door frame. Weird, woke me up. Great staff, very friendly, extremely accommodating, even in ridiculous things. Wine was truly appreciated!

Asked for and received a room on the top floor which was spacious, quiet, very clean and decorated in a fabulously contemporary style. When I made the reservation, I told them that we were celebrating our birthdays and they gifted us a bottle of champagne and two delicious cupcakes; a fun surprise when we checked into our room. We asked... More

Well, I adore the hotel Palomar. I've had many stays in San Francisco and now I have found my hotel of choice. Here are the pros: -wonderful personable staff (nattily dressed in bow ties) -fun, unexpected amenities like cheetah and zebra robes and a yoga mat in the room. (I did yoga 2/4 nights!) -great location right by yerba buena... More

Glad you had fun staying with us. We all have fun coming to work too. In fact, Josh at the front desk, was hiding Easter Eggs last night. (I think Matt, the doorman took some). Anywho...another fun day here. Come back soon. There is always a surprise. More

Room - very spacious with a large bathroom, clean, very comfortable mattress, and large television. Only downside was my room was on 5th floor, nearest the restaurant - quieted down when I went to sleep at 11 but a bit noisy set up for breakfast crowd in the morning. Did not eat/drink at the restaurant bar but impressed by breadth... 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.
