                  Fantastic experience at the Kimpton Palomar Philadelphia. In particular, Melissa is amazing! She went above & beyond to provide me with excellent service and always had a warm & friendly smile. Melissa, thank you!

                  23rd floor was noisy because of a wedding on Saturday night, but they quieted down at midnight as promised.

                  The hotel was spotless, the staff were very friendly, the location was great and the bed was comfortable.

                  The a/c didn't seem very responsive. Got hot during the night and felt stuffy when the unit wasn't running.

                  Great Center City location, modern yet warm design, high quality everything, comfortable bed and linens, spacious main room and bathroom, top-notch staff (housekeeper wrote us a personal Thank You note), good value, tasty breakfast in extra-nice restaurant, fast elevators!

                  Good location, staff friendly.

                  Did not know free bikes were available until we were checking out.

                  luxurious decor, staff professional, location, elegant contemporary ambience, extra touches such as qtips in bathroom, free wifi

                  would like to see a broader selection on the menu for dinner - some a bit too gourmet (although loved the salad that I got & the espresso martinis were fantastic)

                  Staying at Hotel Palomar Philadelphia met all my travel needs and more. It was beautifully designed, strategically located, super comfortable and exceptionally serviced. For a demanding traveler like myself I would consider staying at Kimpton Hotels before I look anywhere else, especially when traveling as a couple.

                  Though we don't have a dog we loved meeting the dogs. Your staff was extremely helpful. How do you make that wonderful popcorn?

                • Couple
                  10.0

                  Staff was great and the room was top notch for a urban hotel (smaller rooms)

                  I thought that we were buying an upgraded "Cityview" room. Apparently not.

                • Family with children
                  7.8

                  Great hotel, unfortunately the hotel lost power in the middle of the night for about 2 hours and it was sweltering! We stayed on the 12th floor because we have pets, but as soon as we stepped out of the elevator, we smelled a strong urine smell! Our room was fine but the 12th floor lobby/ elevator area smells terrible! I would stay they again, but not on a floor designated for pets.

                  Terrific staff, nicely-designed rooms.

                  There should be more than one chair in the room and it should be evident that one can, in fact, have a coffee maker. Hot water was slow to reach room at night.

                  The service is extraordinary. The spa bathtub is extraordinary......and everything else is quite wonderful at this boutique gem in Philadelphia.

                  The food tray for breakfast was just ok -- the muffins weren't heated, the jam was forgotten -- but room service brought jam literally in 3 minutes.

                  Location and the cocktail reception.

                  Because I booked through a third party I was told when checking out I couldn't get a receipt. I find that hard to believe. Because of this, I wouldn't recommend the hotel for business travelers as it will be difficult to be reimbursed. I was told that when I booked online that the third parties confirm I received from booking was my receipt. If guests don't know that up front they may not have kept the online receipt to submit for expense reimbursement. Not good.

                  The location was wonderful. The staff friendly and helpful. The room comfortable and clean. The bar was fun with good food and not terribly expensive. The lobby needs to be cleaned a bit more often when people leave cups and napkins about. I would stay there again and would also recommend the hotel Palomar.

                  The lobby needs to be cleaner. Things ought to be picked up up more often when guests leave behind cups and trash.

                  I really enjoyed my first stay at Hotel Palomar. My hotel room was stylish, the staff was friendly and helpful, the lobby and bar areas were handsomely appointed, and I enjoyed the hot cider and ginger snaps available in the lobby when I checked in.
