My fiance and I stayed at the Palomar on a Friday night to have a nice get-away trip with a wonderful dinner in the city. We were immediately greeted by friendly valet staff and doormen, who were more than helpful with out bags. As soon as we walked in, there was a wonderful buzz in the lobby, coming from the...

The Palomar is a good place to stay right in the middle of everything right where you would want to be for a visit to Philly. Rooms were clean, hotel staff were very friendly and its close to everything.

Aesthetically top-notch, but has some surprising functional quirks, such as (1) no coffee maker in room, and (2) no complimentary breakfast. They do serve free coffee and tea in the lobby 6-9 am, but the only accompaniment is a bowl of apples. No croissants, muffins, or anything breakfast-y. The on-site restaurant serves breakfast, so I guess they're trying to push...

Gardenwithfountain, Next time you are headed back our way, let us know you'd like a coffee maker in your room. We'll be sure to have it waiting. Also, complimentary breakfast isn't something we offer but keep your eyes open for the occasion promotion which includes breakfast for $1 more than your room rate! Regards, James

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Palomar in March of 2013 when we visited Philly as one of our vacation stops. This was actually our first stay at an Kimpton hotel, and we quickly became very fond of their collections after the stay at the Palomar. The services were friendly and professional every time, and the staff was usually...
