I stayed here for three nights in a double-double room with a friend on vacation. We chose the Hotel Palomar based on tripadvisor reviews.
The hotel is great, the doormen are very courtious and the decor is fun. Our room was on a high floor so there was no street noise. The room is relatively large. The beds are comfy but could have done with a physical duvet rather than layers of sheets.
The bathroom is really nice and very clean. The room was always cleaned really well, even when we asked them at 3pm to clean the room as we forget to take the do not disturb sign down.
I loved the leopard print robe! It's a nice touch.
The staff in general were very friendly, especially the Scottish man. They always seemed happy to see us.
One or two things were a little annoying, for example we had $25 rate match credit which no one seemed to know about or what it applied to. We went to the bar during what the website said was happy hour to spend it, only to be told happy hour was over. (I do note that they have now changed their website to reflect the correct time). The bar was very cold as we had to move to near the door since we weren't eating, even though lots of empty tables. Service was pretty slow here too, which again was surprising as it wasn't too busy. However, overall this didn't bother me as the rest of the hotel was so nice.
The location was great, there was a Rite Aid on the same block and it was near to the shopping at Walnut and Chestnut.
We liked the free $10 mini bar credit for being part of their loyalty program.
I would de their hotels based on this trip.
