“Heart of Dallas hotel that offers access to great food, shops, downtown and a good night's sleep.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

This hotel offers friendly, accommodating staff. Kimpton's early upgrade email allowed me to get a larger room prior to check in. This hotel offers an excellent government rate for those traveling on government or university business. No more Holiday Inn at the airport.

Great access to Highland Park, great food, shopping and downtown Dallas.

Room Tip: Excellent government rate

I just recently celebrated a special occasion at Hotel Palomar and everything about the stay exceeded my expectations. The hotel, spa and restaurant were all a treat, and we experienced lovely service from all of the staff.

I was very surprised with how contemporary the furniture and amenities were. The pool and Hot-tub are a must to visit! I had a blast! I have never experienced a hotel that surprised me this much in just one visit!

We hope people aren't fooled by the exterior of the hotel. While we've left most of the original 1960s building exterior untouched, the interior of the Palomar is a completely different story. Our hotel was re-designed by Beverly Hills designer Cheryl Rowley, and she made sure to bring the the peak of modern style and comfort to the Palomar. We're glad you enjoyed our look and our infinity pool and relaxing hot tub.

Extraordinary staff and delightful ambiance. We love the cabanas at the pool and the outside dining areas. Lovely food.

If you've got to be in Dallas but don't want to be downtown then the Palomar is a solid choice. Close to Downtown and the Arts District, a moment from SMU, five minutes from Highland Park, and a short ride to/from Love Field. I travel quite a bit, and I prefer staying at Kimpton hotels, who have a well deserved reputation for excellent service and quality food. Both were the case in each of the three times I've visited the Palomar. Next time I come to Dallas, I'll choose the Palomar again.

Room Tip: Join the Kimpton InTouch program

I had a great stay at the Hotel Palomar. Nice room, excellent staff and perfect location to visit SMU. I took one of the most exhilarating yoga class of my life at Exhale Spa. The wine hour in the lobby was a huge hit with my group. Yummy snacks. Simon, the chef at the hotel restaurant, personally greeted my group, hung out with us and sent some yummy desserts for us to sample.

Room Tip: Ask for room that doesn't face highway.

You're right about exhale - they're not kidding around with their yoga and core fusion classes. And I'm glad Chef Simon was able to get your replenished with some treats from Central 214's delicious menu. We hope your next next trip to Dallas will bring you back to the Palomar.
