I only spent one night at the Palomar, but it felt like home. If home were a super cool place to hang out, with excellent service, super clean bathrooms and a lot of cute dogs. Dogs? Yes, I was surprised to find this was a pet friendly hotel! Lots of dogs coming and going with their owners. I usually avoid...

We returned to the Palomar Philly for one night of my birthday weekend and had our usual great stay here. The staff gave us a very warm welcome and they all seemed to know that it was my birthday. We were upgraded to a cityview room on their top floor with an amazing spa bathroom. The hotel's service was overall...

Did a quick overnight at Kimpton's Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia and once again, they knocked it out of the park. This is truly one of Philadelphia's great hotels - superbly located, tastefully appointed, excellent service. You'll love it here.

So- my wife and I escaped from the suburbs to celebrate our birthdays this past weekend...We chose Kimpton due to its proximity, style and services. This being our first time at a Kimpton Property, we were excited to be spoiled for a weekend. We were NOT disappointed! There was a hand-written birthday wish, along with a bottle of wine AND...

The hotel is updated and modern with really nice front desk staff. Loved the happy hour and we were especially fond of city view from nice modern clean bathroom that had amazing bathtub.

I can't say enough about this hotel. The service was great, the location was even better. I don't remember the type of room we had but ask for a room with the large bath tub, and take a nice hot bath you won't be disappointed. The restaurant/bar is cool but there are nay other options within a 5 minute walk.

Lrten - The jacuzzi tub definitely speaks for itself but you can count on the staff to continuously knock it out of the park. Don't be a stranger! Pete

I frequently stay in Philadelphia as we live locally. This hotel is by far the best value and has the nicest rooms of any hotel in the city including the Ritz. There is wonderful value for what you are getting which includes a free wine hour, amazing bathrooms, and great room options. If you want to splurge a bit (although...

We live in the suburbs of Philadelphia and anytime we stay in the city it is always at Hotel Palomar. We have tried other 5 star properties but this is really a cut above the rest. The rooms are always very clean, have nice amenities including the best bathrooms in the city, and have extra perks like the hosted wine...

THE GOOD Since I have visited different Kimpton hotels in various cities and always had a great experience, I had high expectations upon visiting the Palomar. I found check-in to be friendly and welcoming. Even though it was earlier than the 3:00 p.m. check-in time, the front desk agent, Titus, was able to find a room ready for us, which...
