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 don't know why I love the hotel room with big fancy bathroom but this is definitely one of the hotels where bathroom is nicer than the...

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.

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...

When I stay at hotels i judge them on two factors the bathrooms and room service. This hotel exceeded on the bathroom but unfortunately failed miserably on the room service. First the good/great: We pre-checked in and left our bags and meet possibly the greatest bellhop ever Art! Ive worked in hotels/hospitality my entire life and he is the epitome...

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...

I paid a little (very little) more for the spa sweet and it was totally worth it. The bathroom was great and the bed was super comfortable. I love being a Kimpton rewards member because they truly take care of me. Our room was quiet even though it was right in the middle of the city and I didn't hear...

I love staying in Kimpton hotels, and the Palomar in Philadelphia did not disappoint. It's a great location in Center City, close to Rittenhouse Square, and in the middle of great Philly shopping and dining. There's also a Philly Soft Pretzel factory right across the street!! It's a converted building, so it was great to see some of the original...

You hit the nail on the head here, Chris! From our location to our customer service levels to all the perks of being a rewards member, we truly are one of the best in the city. Our building is the old Institute of American Architecture building so you know when it was built, it was built right! Karma members immediately...
