    Diamond and the front desk team (Mary, Malcom, Christy) were amazing. Very friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and set the tone for enjoying our stay. If anyone can appreciate great customer service to go with a beautiful hotel than the Palomar will not disappoint.

    Have stayed in Kimpton Hotels all over the country and at this particular Philly destination two times. There is a reason I keep coming back. Great looking. Great service. Great reward program. This hotel is in the center of where you want to be and you can walk to Old City, Society Hill and Independence park easily. Close to public... More

    We stayed at the Hotel Palomar for a couples getaway over July 4th weekend. We stayed in a King Spa Room, which was a huge reason we chose the hotel. Driving up was a little tricky as we arrived at a busy time and there was nowhere to pull over for valet parking ($45 a night). We had to drive... More

    Having grown up in New Jersey, I was all too familiar with the rivalry between NYC and Philly. Philadelphia had always been viewed as an a place you just drove through on Route 95, no reason to do anything more than quickly pass through. This despite its importance in American history. Philly was pathetic and ridiculous, trying too hard to... More

    Very clean, nice rooms. Bed was really comfortable. Staff really friendly, and helpful. Great location, we walked everywhere with no problems or concerns. Just tell the doorman where you want to go, and he will tell you the best way to walk there, and where to stop on your way. Loved the elevator, really unique!

    This is a beautiful hotel, really the meaning of luxury and 5* - we had rooms overlooking the city on the 19th floor and it was an incredible view. The service was good, very friendly, with the free wine hour when we got there a nice bonus. Plus the location could not be more central and spot on. The only... More

    So, I got this place at a great deal on Priceline. There's something about booking on Priceline that makes me assume that EVERY room that you're booking is subpar in some way. I am happy to report that if that was the case with this hotel, it was very difficult to identify. Though the room was sort of tiny, the... More

    Stayed at Kimpton's Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia in July, and everything was pretty much perfect. Always is at Kimpton. I travel with 3 dogs, so I depend on Kimpton. The hotels are a bit expensive, but it's worth it. These are beautiful luxury hotels and my dogs are allowed at no extra cost and with no questions (other than what... More

    This was our second stay at the Palomar in Philadelphia, and we enjoyed it as much as the first. We were greeted with a complementary glass of wine. Our room was clean and comfortable with a view view. The hotel has a lot going for it, but its best feature is the location. It's surrounded by restaurants and shops, and... More
