If you are traveling to San Diego and need a place to stay this is a must! I felt really safe here and the hotel is very clean. You can tell the housekeeping team does an amazing job and the room is spotless. They have set everything up for you fell safe from the check in to the distance pool chairs. You have an amazing employees that will go out of their way. Eduardo, Astrid, George and Lia to name a few! Also highly recommend paying extra for an upgraded room to have the best view in the city!

You’re in good hands at the Palomar. Astrid, George, and staff are so welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. Cleanliness was a 10/10 and we felt very safe. Palomar will be our top choice in SD for years to come!

We decided to get away for the weekend and spend a night at Kimpton Palomar. From the moment we checked in, the staff was kind, professional and accommodating. George and Astrid working at the Front Desk made us to feel comfortable and safe and were more than gracious. We stayed in a Skyline King room which seemed to be recently remodeled and it felt clean and safe. There are hand sanitizer stations all throughout the hotel as well as safety glass at the front desk. We even saw a staff member wiping down the credit card pin-pad after each check in. The pool was awesome and provided a relaxing afternoon. The hotel is just steps away from all the restaurants in downtown. Thanks Palomar for an amazing stay. We will be back soon.
