We stayed in Philly for my husband's birthday. We reserved a King Spa Room. As always kimpton does it right, the whirlpool tub was HUGE and the window with a view of Philly in the bathroom was awesome. the staff left us a bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries upon arrival. We were also given drink tokens to use... More

This hotel is in a great location. Easy to find if you're walking from train station. Walking distance to Rittenhouse Square and tons of really cool restaurants along the way. The hotel is near many of the popular sights and attractions. Staff is courteous and helpful with directions, calling a cab and offering suggestions of what to do and where... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights at the Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia in order for my husband and I to share a long weekend together. I chose this hotel after a vast amount of internet research because it received such high marks and fit into our price range. The hotel can be a little tricky to find, particularly if you... More

Okay, we kind of "lucked out" when we walked into our room at this KIMPTON hotel on S17th Street in Philadelphia. A corner room with classic octagonal corner windows overlook S17th Street and Sansom Streets in West City Center. A great restaurant downstairs, free coffee in the mornings in the lobby and a wine-happy-hour every afternoon until 6pm. Be sure... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Palomar from Saturday-Monday for a wedding. We got the rooms as part of a wedding block, but if I'm traveling to a city that has a Kimpton, I'll almost assuredly be staying there. My wife and I brought our 4 year old terrier mix with us, as we were excited to stay... More

I was in Philadelphia for the NCAA Frozen Four championship and we chose the Palomar because of it's central location in Philly. Close to restaurants, town center, subway, and all the sights of Philly. The staff was super friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They were basically our family for 5 days. I can't say enough about the excellent service and the... More

First went to the Palomar last summer when my son was looking at UPenn. We picked it because it was close to UPenn and allowed us to bring our dog. Well my son was accepted there and we went back to Philadelphia for accepted students day. We came with out dog again. Looks like my son will be going to... More

I stay here frequently on business and I love everything about this hotel. It's convenient, in the middle of city center. It's in an old building, so the rooms are cute and quirky. The staff is great, and by now they know my name and speak to me when I pass through the lobby. There's a yoga mat in my... More

I had theater tickets for Phantom at the Academy of Music 8pm show and decided to stay overnight on 4/11. Normal check in at most hotels is 4pm but at the Palomar it's 3pm. Upon check-in I was given my room keys and a $10 coupon for either the bar next store or the mini bar. Lamar checked me in;... More
