    From the minute I arrived I felt cared for. They called my room a few minutes after I went up to make sure everything was in good shape. I never heard a noise from other guests. My room was always perfectly cleaned/turned down. It couldn't have been better. My walk to the convention center everyday was enjoyable and took me right past the beautiful City Hall building. So worth it, would stay there over and over.

    I had plans to travel to Philadelphia for my first time for my birthday. I picked this hotel after an agonizingly long list of "matched" options meeting my demands were found. I sought the following: luxury, romance, city views, within the city center. The Palomar did NOT disappoint! Staff was friendly, helpful and quick to acknowledge guests and honor requests. The room was tidy, and the bathroom larger than expected. We were on the 23rd floor and the view was spectacular! I also loved the mode... Read more

    I returned a year later and the Palomar did not disappoint. The rooms were clean and well appointed. There is a free wine happy hour. However, what makes this a great hotel is the staff. Literally everyone I encountered could not have been friendlier and wearing a welcoming smile. The staff remembered me from my last stay or at least did enough research to make it genuine. A level of service that was appreciated. I was there for two nights and my room was expertly cleaned after the first night.... Read more

    We enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff is great in customer service, the room was clean and spacious, and some healthy snacks in the mini bar. My only complaint is that we were assigned to one of the disabled rooms. The beds are on platforms that have corners that are sharp and hard. Both my husband and I banged our shins. We left with black and blue marks. To avoid further injuries, we put a book and pillow on the corners of the bed. I do not know if the platforms on the are a standard for... Read more

    Stayed there overnight to attend concert in Camden. Very nice place. Clean. Comfortable. Unfortunately, we asked that the hotel book us a car for the return trip from Camden. The hotel booked us a car; they booked it for the wrong night. Alas, we were stuck in Camden with no Uber service available at the time and the local taxi places not answering calls. Needless to say, the prospect of walking across the Ben Franklin Bridge beat the alternative; and, initial calls to the hotel -- "not much we ... Read more

    This is my second review for the Palomar but I felt the need to re-review after another flawless stay. I was nervous - as a number of other Kimpton properties have gone downhill since the IHG takeover. I'm happy to see that this place has been relatively unaffected by their corporate overlords. We booked through Hotwire, which was unusual for Kimpton properties as the lowest price is usually offered on their website to Kimpton Reward members.

    This is a nice little "oasis" hotel in the middle of a busy, crowded city. The people are very nice and the rooms are comfortable. This is clearly a high-class hotel and well-located. The food is decent but the restaurant service is somewhat lacking - we waited for very long times for all meals, whether they were crowded or not.

    An older building that was renovated proved to be an excellent location. The room is very comfortable and clean. The best part of this hotel is the staff, extremely efficient and friendly. They were polite with each other and helpful to the customers. We went at a very busy and imposing time ( just before the DNC), but the staff was more interested in how we could effectively spend our short stay.

    We have been a Palomar regular for years 30+ stays. What we loved was getting to know the staff. If it was a special occasion they new from talking to us and they would remember. They always put something in the room that let us know we were more then just a nameless guest. Now there is a new face every time we check in and it's like any other hotel. The cost is higher than other hotels in the area but we never used to mind. The only thing that brings us back is Dan and Dee in the bar!!! D... Read more

    Exemplary customer service. It started with valet parking. When i checked in my room wasn't ready, so the desk clerk volunteered a $25 meal credit and i had a lovely lunch and did some work while my room was prepped. And the room was worth the wait. Great city view, with a stunning soaking tub and HUGE shower. A comfy place to read is important to me, and this room has a great couch to snuggle up on to read and do research to get ready for the next day. However, the view is so distracti... Read more

    Kimpton Palomar was a nice hotel! Very modern, very clean, and in a great location. There was a fire alarm test that took place on the day of check out which was a little annoying but other than that it was a nice stay. We are kimpton rewards members and appreciate the extra perks we get as members when we stay at the hotels. 2 thumbs up!

    I stayed for 6 nights in a twin-queen equipped room. The hotel itself prides itself on its original design and service both of which were up to scratch. The hotel's footprint is pretty small so there are not many communal areas if you want to escape your room but due to the very central location you're better off getting outside and to any of the numerous local cafes, bars or restaurants.

    I really like Kimpton hotels overall - though some are oddly quirky - and this is SURELY one of them! The location is good, the hallways are bright, and clean... but there are some really odd quirks. I was upgraded (thanks kimpton!) to a small suite because I am an inner circle member. The suite was small to be a suite. The living room was nice - the bedroom was tiny. So small that the door to the mini bar wouldn't open all the way because it hit the bed. The bathroom was really nice- wit... Read more

    Stayed at the Kimpton Palomar in Philadelphia for one night and wished I could have stayed longer. The place is perfectly situated for both business and shopping in the city. Very nice room with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. The hotel serves complimentary wine and cheese every afternoon which is a nice touch. The staff were also super friendly.

    Staff are all eager to please and friendly. That vibe is so pervasive that even the guests are friendly. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with very comfortable beds. Bathrooms are large. Climate control is very good. Walking location to most destinations of interest - or easy public transport. WiFi works well. All is clean. Evening hosted wine reception is a nice perk. Morning coffee available in the lobby. This hotel represents excellent value.

    Well decorate room. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in. And I had a crazy big bathtub. At the front desk all of then polite and helpful. Perfectly located. I did tried the breakfast first morning. Good. Although I usually went outside in order to take a look of the city.

    We were here for 4 nights & before checkout, we booked our next stay back again. The room was extremely comfortable with an exceptionally quiet air conditioner & a really unique & functional bathroom. The tub was huge (didn't use it), placed behind the shower, which made it feel like a shower enclave with view of Walnut Stret. I like the location of this property, a block off Walnut; easy walk but slightly less traffic. The ambiance is friendly, with dogs allowed - so nice to meet several of the... Read more
