Stayed here recently for work. Room was well appointed and spacious near Rittenhouse Square. Work space was ample with good light and desk. My view was over the street and despite being on 5th floor was not too noisy. Lots of restaurants around, and reasonably close to 30th Street Station (short cab ride).

Stayed at Kimpton Hotel 2 weeks ago, was in Philly for Business. It didn't disappoint for a 1 night stay, the doorman was quick to get my luggage from the taxi, the check-in was easy and fast. Rooms were clean, really clean-slightly small, maybe a bigger a room for someone vacationing?...it's enough for a business traveler comfortable beds, they give...

We always do Kimpton when its an option and are fans of the Palomar model. Fun and funky interior, not quite luxe but not at all stuffy, clean, great staff, great location near Rittenhouse. Rooms are on the small side, but within the standard for an urban hotel. The staff looked at the record to see that we had spent...

Great boutique hotel. The rooms are average size with great bathrooms and linens. Art deco -type decor, beautiful and clean. Friendly staff and great location - steps away from Rittenhouse Square and the best restaurants!

Yesterday for example they forgot to make up and clean our room and as a result, today we do not have even the basics .....we have to call...

So I booked an overnight "staycation" for my husband and I to get a night out on the town kid-free (thanks Grandma) and chose the Palomar Hotel due to its prime location and close proximity to some of Philly's best restaurants. They greeted us with drinks and provided great service. If you are looking to do the same I recommend...

We decided to go into Philadelphia a day early to really enjoy our daughter's graduation ceremony. We grabbed a hot wire deal and we ended up at Kimpton Hotel Palomar. We were greeted by the lovely Maria who got us all squared away. Actually before we even walked into the hotel the amazing doorman with the brightest smile helped us...

I arrived at 1 am last night and was so happy to have such a wonderful room with glorious pressed sheets, water, a wonderful shower and coffee pot in the room after a long trip.
