One of my favorite hotels! My friend and I stayed at the Palomar in January and the stay was perfect. Location is excellent- we were able to walk to all the places we wanted to visit. The 18th floor room view was breathtaking, and staff was super sweet! Special shout out to Jenny Walsh who was kind enough to check-up... More

Kimpton does it again. Great experience in lovely hotel with great location. Our standard room was definitely a bit small, but comfortable in every way. parking at this location is VERY difficult, so go ahead an pay up for the valet, it's worth it.

We stayed here instead of my convention hotel because it was pet friendly and had great reviews. It did not disappoint. It was a home away from home for 5 days, but with better decor! The staff were great and my dog was not only allowed to be there, but welcomed. We hope to make it back soon!

I am very partial to this chain of hotels - it's confusing because the hotels have various different names, but I seek them out. Anyway this place didn't disappoint. Reasonable room rate, funky interesting converted office building - be sure to see the ornate original tile and terra cotta and wood detail in the second floor elevator lobby. The front... More

Clean funky rooms, high level of service and very friendly staff. Close to everything. Lots of shops, attractions and restaurants within an easy walk. Great restaurant. Room service was just ok. No printed hotel info in the room.

The thing about Hotel Palomar is that they always go the extra mile. Sure the wine hour is fun, well attended, and FREE; the Wifi is hook up is on point, the rooms are as stylish as they are luxurious and comfortable, but it always goes back to the people that make this hotel truly special. Always a stellar experience.

We love Philadelphia. It's hard to say whether we'd feel the same way if we didn't have the perfect accommodations at Palomar hotel! We brought our dog (40 pounds ok!), had happy hour hot toddies and wine by the fire, watched Revenant in our perfectly decorated room and brunches in the fabulous restaurant. Have absolutely only GREAT things to say... More

zeitgeist65 - Philadelphia is an awesome town, so I'm fairly confident that you'd still be pretty fond of it. However, it does sound like a pretty perfect weekend. Square's brunch is out of sight and even though there are a 1000 things to see, do, and eat in Rittenhouse Square, there's definitely something appealing about lounging around all day at... More

We celebrated my son's 16th birthday with an overnight visit to Philadelphia and a stay at the Hotel Palomar. This was my second visit and I was just as pleased this time. Check in and valet was a breeze and the desk clerk went out of his way to extend a Happy Birthday greeting to my son. Our room on... More

Suzanne o - Happy belated birthday to your son! A trip to Philadelphia is a pretty awesome present. I'm pretty sure my 16th birthday was spent at school. Glad we could help play up the moment for him. We love celebrating birthdays with our guests. If you're thinking ahead to 21 already, there are a lot of great drinking establishments... More

Thanks for choosing the Palomar to celebrate your Anniversary! We love being included on special events. We can't wait to see you back in a few days to celebrate your birthday! You'll have to come back to celebrate something else (Flag Day?) so you can spend some more time in those awesome spa tubs! Best - Mark More
