Palomar Phoenix CityScape a Kimpton Hotel

Phoenix, Arizona

The hotel

Anything but ‘spit and sawdust’, Palomar Phoenix CityScape is far from the city’s Wild West origins – in fact, it’s a byword for boutique. Each floor opens up a new luxury. Downstairs, your hosts greet you with complimentary hot drinks each morning, and a wine hour each night. The second floor gastropub, Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails, has a menu pairing small seasonal plates, ideal for sharing, with original cocktails and carefully curated wines and beers. And the third floor rooftop space gives you a stunning pool, a seriously smart lounge bar, and views over downtown Phoenix. When you’re ready to step out and explore it, you’re perfectly positioned in CityScape, the hotspot for all that’s happening in the city, and by EŌS Fitness, where you get free entry.

Where is it

In downtown Phoenix’s buzzing CityScape zone, the hotel is surrounded by some of the city’s best dining, shopping and entertainment venues. It’s also just a block from Talking Stick Resort Arena and five blocks from Chase Field, if you’re coming for the sports. For culture, you’ve got theatres and the Arizona Science Center within a mile of the hotel.

I had the chance to stay at the Palomar for a bit while on a family vacation to Phoenix. It was easily a highlight of the time that I spent in Phoenix: its location central to the city provides easy and convenient access to many downtown dining and entertainment options. Many of the best restaurants in Phoenix are within walking distance! While the hotel common spaces are a bit heavily perfumed, the rooms are very clean and orderly. The style was modern, and was a beautiful environment to stay in. Our service was excellent: every request was accommodated with ease and patience. The entire experience was incredible, and the Palomar is among my favorite hotel stays that I have had thus far. Read less

My husband and I loved staying at this hotel. We arrived earlier in the morning and were quickly checked in with early check in with no issue. Valet and front desk staff were extremely friendly and professional. Hotel was very clean and modern. Only con was the pool staff. I’m am pregnant but my husband as well as all the other guests that we met and chatted with at the pool had the same complaint.... the pool attendants were nowhere to be found. When my husband and another guest went to the bar (on separate occasions), the attendants were behind the bar taking shots and drinking instead of grabbing orders. This annoyed a number of guests while we were out soaking up rays. Even with that annoyance, I would certainly stay here again. I don’t feel that was a true reflection on our experience of our stay.

Made reservation for my in-laws many months ago to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Called the hotel the week before to order some Champagne for the room to celebrate and let them know we were thinking of them on the special day.. Hotel was very nice and would not accept payment and instead said they would charge the front desk. Didn't hear anything from the in-laws during stay so asked them if hotel did anything special and they said there was no champagne delivered (or any mention of special day). I called the hotel in the morning after checkout and they admitted they made a mistake and said that things like that never happen. Just want to document this in case any others see something like this happen and let folks know to make sure you call the hotel the day before your reservation to remind them if something special you have arranged or an occasion. And I do realize this is a 1st world complaint but not the service I expect from a Kimpton. On the positive the hotel was apologetic and did offer to throw some points and the inlaws did seem to enjoy the hotel. Read less

The staff here is very nice and personable. Everyone I talked to here was cheerful and willing to help. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. Despite being on a busy street, the rooms were quiet and I was able to get a good night's sleep. There is a yoga mat in the closet if you feel inclined to work out during your stay, as well as a robe for lounging. What was kind of odd is that there was no coffee pot in the room; however, they will bring you one if you'd prefer to have your first cup of coffee in your pajamas. Read less

Spacious room, beautiful hotel, excellent restaurant onsite, but the best is the staff and the wine and flat bread section every evening. I immediately became a member and will definitely stay at this chain hotel more in the future.
