We arrived for a wedding on Oct 11th. We enjoyed the stay so much we decided to stay another night. The room was so clean and everyone at the hotel especially Danielle at the front desk so accommodating and super friendly!

We love Kimptons because of their flair, friendly people, and dog-friendly accommodations. Earlier this year we stayed at the Kimpton Monaco, near the Liberty Bell. I preferred their whimsical decor and atmosphere to the Palomar’s Art Deco design. The Palomar’s lobby is nice; the rooms look like any other hotel. No whimsical wall paper or interesting furniture. Unremarkable bathroom. Despite registering our dog when we booked the room, his name wasn’t on the welcome sign and we weren’t offered bowls, etc. like we usually are at a Kimpton. The location, near Rittenhouse Square, is great. Many shops and restaurants in the area. The dozen or so homeless people on the church steps next door were a bit aggressive. If you don’t require in/out privileges, you can park for less than the $50 valet by using the Spot Hero app. The Palomar people were all very friendly. Read less

Centrally located with easy access to Center City and Rittenhouse. Comfortable, well-appointed and beautifully designed rooms. A lovely lobby with fireplace and much needed coffee in the morning. Don't forget to mail your Philly-themed post cards free of charge from one of the cute mailboxes hidden around the hotel.

What a wonderful hotel - the location, decor, staff, bed, and space were all welcoming and enchanting. We spent the night in one of the suites and the special soaking tub was a highlight of the trip. Thanks to the front desk staff for everything. I don’t usually gush on my reviews but this was really wonderful.
