Our most recent 2 night stay at the Palomar was great, as it always is when we stay at a Kimpton. Our room was quiet and sunny, too - which made me very happy. Plus - we were switched to a Queen Queen, at the same rate I booked online for a King.
The hot chocolate with all the fixings (in the lobby) was a treat. The friendly staff was a plus - especially the door-opening guys, who let us in from the freezing cold with a smile all weekend. Seriously, the staff couldn't have been sweeter, more professional, or more welcoming.
I tell everyone I know that Kimpton is the only hotel to book rooms in - but they rarely believe me. It's their loss but my gain, because we've never had a bad stay, either in NYC or Philly.
Last spring we came to Philly for the AMA conference. I wanted to stay at the Palomar, but the Sofitel across the street was offering cheaper rates. I called the Palomar and asked if they could match Sofitel's price. Unfortunately, I was told no, even though I'm an Intouch member and a Kimpton groupie. The Sofitel was a disappointment (even though they offer free croissants, fruit, and espresso/cappuchino), in comparison.
