Granted, I always stay in 1703/4 or 1803/4 but this hotel is my staycation location. The se spa us the best San Diego has to offer, the beds are super comfy (even with my bad spine) the rooms are gorgeous and clean and the view is breathtaking. I love the pool and the pool bar as well as the salt... More

This review will I hope give you a flavour of the hotel and location. By way of context we finished off a fly drive in San Diego and decided to stay in a central location so we could ditch the car. We stayed 5 nights (Sunday-Friday). We are from Edinburgh, Scotland. The hotel: in summary we loved it. We arrived... More

The hotel has a modern decor throughout and although it can be a bit dark it is nice and trendy. We had a room on the 9th floor which was spacious and looked lovely. Although we had no view it was absolutely fine as there is so much to see in the city that we only spent time at the... More

Stayed here last year and was provided a beautiful room (high floor) with a lovely evening view and lots of windows. This year, feel like I'm in a closet. Awkward to watch tv. It requires a turn of head 90 degrees. View from bed is of a bathroom. Not a great layout. And not a lot of room. Front desk... More

The Palomar San Diego is on the ball...finding the place was easy, just off the Freeway. Valet Parking was also was super easy. The front desk staff were fantastic; even warning us about a pool party going on and that it would be over by 8pm. We stayed on the 13th floor and even on a busy summer weekend, it... More

The location, dab in the middle of downtown San Diego, appealed greatly to me. Numerous restaurants are within walking distance (depending, of course, on how well you use your legs) and the trolley and bus system is right there for the asking. Getting around on San Diego's transportation system is easy and pleasurable. (There was a time, however, when I... More

I surprised my wife with a trip to San Diego for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed for a long weekend at the Palomar. Great Location, great hotel. What made it over the top was the management upgrading us to an 1100 Sq. Ft. suite when they heard it was our 25th anniversary. It was incredible. This was my second... More
