This is a nice hotel in a prime, downtown Philadelphia location. Check-in was a tad frustrating as I wanted to use a free upgrade I received from Kimpton. The upgrade - to a "spa suite" - was fine, but when I entered my room, there was a fruit basket, beverage items, and a card addressed to another guest. I had... More

Stayed the night (wish it had been longer) with my husband and kids. It happened to be my daughter's birthday - they sent up cookies and cake and a card. We didn't even ask for it. They are so accommodating. They also gave my kids cookie passes for warm cookies and milk. They really loved that! The hotel offered a... More

My wife and I stay here at least 2-3 times a year for a night away from the little ones. We have only stayed in the King Spa with City View room. Clean, comfortable room, awesome bathroom and a great view. Front desk staff is always helpful and kind. A quick walk to some of the best shopping, restaurants, and... More

Stayed for one night and it was terrific. The room, although on the small side, was very well laid out with very nice decor and spotless. The bathroom is also very nicely decorated and very clean. Wine reception in the lobby with live music was also a very nice touch but what really sets this hotel apart are the staff.... More

My son and I stayed at the Hotel Palomar while we were doing college tours. I booked after reading Trip Advisor reviews, but was a bit skeptical as I was not familiar with the Kimpton chain. We were not disappointed. The bell staff was incredibly helpful and friendly - even provided some good restaurant recommendations. Check-in was really easy. Overall... More

We decided to stay here after an airbnb did not work out well. It was great! My daughter and I loved everything about it. Very cool old architects building! Someone told me it was the old Phila chapter of the AIA building. Sweet! The location is near all our favorite spots. We slept pretty good and so did our dog.... More

Stayed at the Palomar since I could not book my regular hotel because of a convention, What a pleasant surprise. Staff are top-notch, professional and friendly creating a wonderfully pleasant atmosphere in the hotel. Rooms are well appointed if somewhat small. But the location is unbeatable -- putting you in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. Pretty much everything is under... More

This is a very good hotel. We spent three nights there in July,2016, on the breakfast package. The food is delicious and healthy. Service in the hotel is very attentive-every staff member we encountered was pleasant and professional. The hotel is very convenient to Chestnut Street and Walnut Ave. shops, and a few blocks to the subway if you are... More

I enjoyed a one-night stay recently at the Palomar for a combo business/pleasure trip. Location couldn't have been better: within walking distance to both the train station and the location of our business meeting, I was able to avoid using taxis during my stay (except for the evening's entertainment - we took in a Guns-N-Roses concert at Lincoln Financial Field,...
