I must say two things in advance. First I travel approximately 200,000 air miles per year so I get around and two, whenever possible Kimpton properties are my go to destination of choice and the Palomar is a perfect example of why.
If you’re looking for the chain store hotel where every room at every hotel looks exactly the same with twenty something staff who can’t even spell service, then don’t stay at a Kimpton. On the other hand if you appreciate excellent service and staff who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable then book a Kimpton and book the Palomar when in PA.
The hotel location is ideal for business or pleasure with ample restaurants, café’s and shopping within walking distance. You will find unique rooms and décor that are exceptionally clean well maintained. The staff from the doorman to the front desk clerk to the restaurant waiter all exude exceptional service and a desire to help. If you need something just ask and it will be delivered.
On my most recent trip my flight was severely delayed and I was concerned that since I would be getting in after midnight that my reservation might be canceled so I called ahead to let them know…no problem obviously but here is the kicker. The clerk asked if I would like some dinner upon arrival and even though the restaurant would be closed she took my order and there in my room at 1:30 am was dinner (still hot) and a glass of wine…WOW!!!
The hotel restaurant/bar will more than meet your needs and it’s a rather popular place with the locals for an after work or late night drink or meal. You will find mostly professionals from around the area or those who are staying at the hotel so it’s a nice place to relax and hang-out.
The net/net, the Palomar and Kimpton hotels are doing what every other hotel chain is not…they focus first and foremost on the customer, providing a unique experience at each property, supported by staff who want to impress you
