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.

I booked this hotel to celebrate my husband's birthday. Upon check in, we were greeted warmly by Assistant General Manager Tashna. Front Desk Agent Ashley,texted to ensure that everything was to our liking (it was actually better than expected). Housekeeper Farida was warm/friendly & did an amazing job with the cleanliness of our room, it was so inviting, comfortable & beautifully designed. Complimentary bottle of wine & a handwritten birthday note was was a phenomenal added touch. We'll definitely stay at this hotel again.

Crusty towels and stained sheets

Easton, Pennsylvania

Had an awful experience at the Palomar Philadelphia. My hand towels had crusty boogers on them and my comforter had a brown stain. They brought me new lines but did not take the dirty. I put the dirty comforter on the floor. The next day they made my bed with it again. Totally grossed out!!! Will never stay again. The Westin looked nicer!
