Fantastic boutique hotel

by Kazj27 on 24 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

What a way to start a holiday, 3 nights in the Kimpton Palomar, San Diego. Room was clean and tidy, although our room was slightly less spacious around the bed and the only complaint I'd make is that the safe is in the bottom of the wardrobe and with the little space a bit hard to get into. Apart from that a great location for the hotel to explore. Wine hour was a bonus 🍷 Breakfast was included but wouldn't want to pay extra for it as it was a very limited choice, not sure if that's because th...

Californian Sun

by Brian C on 24 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

Visited California to meet up with family from USA in a sunny location. Chose this as it is in central location with access to tourist sites via public transport. There is a "Meet fellow residents" from 6 tp 7 PM when wine and soft drinks are complimentary to encourage everyone to have a chat, a very welcome addition to the hotel's facilities. The pool was warm enough for our visit in Dec 2016 and there were adequate loungers. Our room looked over the rear of the hotel however I don't think any ...

Trendy, lively & great location

by FCDFW on 21 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

Being right off Broadway & 5th Ave, the Palomar is in a great location! It's easy to walk to all the restaurants, bars and shops in the Gaslamp District and a quick ride over to Little Italy. The light rail stop is one block away, and it's only a 10 mins drive to the airport. I stayed for 4 days and was able to get a better feel than my typical 1 or 2 night hotel stay. The lobby is lively, more so than I typically find at similar hip hotels. It has the feeling of a living room type lounge, whic...

Boutique hotel has many perks

by Barbara B on 21 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

I attending a conference at the convention center where there were going to be 2200 people. I decided to stay apart from the "maddening crowd", this was about a mile away. In great weather, a perfect walk. Very happy with the hotel. Great linens, nice business desk in room., even a good. Closet! Would've liked a bathtub and yet I should have asked for one. Knock-out shower though. Housekeeping seemed a bit lacking in that they left me a room service menu first day but never again. I LOVED havi...

Great location. However the hotel needs to pay attention to detail. The bed -and bedside table- were so poorly designed and located that one closet door could not be fully open, making difficult to use the safe, and making two drawer totally unusable. On the other side, the room service is not good. Twice we left around 9 or 10 am -room service was already working on the floor-, came back to the hotel after 3PM with the room still not serviced. After we left later one nigh the room was service...
