Palomar Philadelphia - a Kimpton Hotel

Art-Deco elegance, inner city location

The Kimpton Palomar Philadelphia is a luxury period hotel situated in the city centre of Philadelphia. Like any Kimpton hotel, this one tells a story and that story is ‘Art in Motion’ – something that is immediately apparent upon arrival. The hotel is set in one of the most striking Art Deco buildings in the city and features a beautiful interior that blends period design with contemporary styling. After its $92 million renovation project in recent years, the hotel has gained ‘green’ status for its contribution to environmental design. There are plenty of refined facilities too including the Square 1682 Restaurant, a modern fitness centre and a hosted evening wine hour in the hotel’s charming living room.

Nice modern hotel

This hotel is conveniently located to get around the city but in a nice quiet area. The decor is modern and the hotel is clean. Staff are really friendly and helpful. We arrived too early to check in and out bags were stored securely and then the hotel staff text me when our room was ready. Tea and coffee facilities were not available in the room but there is completely tea, coffee, ice coffee and fruit each morning in the lobby and iced water available in the lobby 24/7 which was much needed on returning to the hotel in the August heat. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great Location; Deluxe 1 Bedroom Suite is Reasonably Priced

New York City, New York

Location is fantastic. Close to Rittenhouse Square and about a 15-20 minute to Chinatown and the Reading Terminal Market. Lots of great shops and eateries within steps of the hotel. Check out the Di Bruno Brothers grocery stores for excellent sandwiches. You can also walk to the 30th St. train Station if you come into town on Amtrak (about a 20 min. walk). We stayed in the Deluxe 1 Bedroom Suite. At under 450 sq ft. it is on the small side for a suite, but Kimpton makes really great use of the space and it is all usable. And for a suite it is a very reasonable price. The one thing I didn't really like was the stepped whirlpool tub. We traveled with our toddler and the tub wasn't practical for bathing him. (realize that this is a very specific situation). Customer service overall is good. They were able to accommodate us for early check- in which we greatly appreciated. The guest services is a bit uneven and on several occasions when we called no one answered. Same thing with housekeeping. One evening they came to do turn down service and took out our trash and then the next night they didn't. Overall, we had a very positive experience.
