My husband and I just returned from a visit to San Diego for our "babymoon" (the last trip together before our first baby arrives). We are typically budget travelers, but we were planning to splurge a little bit for this trip. However, we found an amazing rate for the the Hotel Palomar, so we got the 4-star treatment for a very reasonable price. We loved everything about our stay - the staff was warm and inviting (especially the sweet girl at the check-in desk from our home state of Texas), our room was immaculate, and we also enjoyed the complimentary happy hours each evening at 5:00 (thankfully they included alcohol-free cider!). When I made the reservation, I let them know why we were visiting San Diego, and they upgraded us to a corner room. So lovely!
We knew from other reviews that parking is very expensive, so we drove around the hotel to try and find cheaper overnight lots. We found a small lot near the corner of 8th and Broadway (just 3 blocks from the hotel) for $13 for a 12-24 hour period. It is toward a more sketchy area, but we never had any trouble, and we learned that San Diego is actually a very safe city.
We would defnitely return to the Hotel Palomar, and I would highly recommend it to any of my friends. It was a treat!
