It was our first time to San Francisco, when we booked this hotel we really did not have a good idea on location and quality. From the first time we arrived the service was excellent, the staff were great, very knowledgeable and always very helpful. The hotel/room was a great Boutique type hotel in a great location just off Market St., minutes to Union Square, across from the Cable Car pick up, Street Car pick up on Market. BARTS was right there as well. It was an easy walk down to the water front for us. Will definitely stay here again when we return to SanFran.
"Consistently excellent service"
I try to stay at the Palomar whenever I'm in SF (last week's stay is my 4th in as many years) because I always feel at home there. The staff are uniformly welcoming and they go out of their way to help you, sometimes before you even realize you need help (e.g., asking if you need a cab or transportation arrangements right as you check out). The hotel management is also especially responsive to feedback. For example, I made the observation that the front desk didn't know how much it costs to send an international postcard, and in less than 24 hours I received an email from the front desk manager thanking me for that feedback. One might say that it's just a small thing, but when you experience many small courtesies of this nature over a period of several days, it all adds up to a great stay, and takes away a lot of the pains of business travel.
"Cool downtown hotel"
Great hotel in downtown SF. Good location for shopping and sightseeing. The trendy bar on the 5th floor is hidden away but well worth searching out. If you are into it there are supervised city runs with hotel staff, a great way to see the city.
"The. Best. Experience. EVER! "
I travel for business about 10-15 days per month for work. I am very accustomed to staying in hotels of all star ratings...my recent stay at Hotel Palomar was the best experience I have ever had. The property itself is well situated in San Fran but the true stars of this hotel are the staff. Notably Clayton from the front desk. Clayton really provided impeccable service. My original stay was Tuesday through Friday but my travel plans changed and I needed to stay through Monday but Palomar was booked solid so I made an alternative reservation at the westin around the corner. Once I arrived, Carmen (also outstanding) told me she would check to see if there were any cancellations or try and get us an additional room. Clayton informed us that they had a cancelation but I told him I had already booked at the westin on a non-refundable reservation. Clayton called the westin and sorted out reservation there, got us a refund and moved us to a larger room. Truly fantastic customer service. The restaurant staff was fantastic, the front doormen were awesome (notably Timothy), the valet knew our name and had our car ready ever single time we needed it. Even the maid service left us personalized notes thanking us for the tip we left her. From the restaurant to the front desk to the doormen and valet....this hotel really has something special; the staff! I will only stay at the Palomar every time my business or personal travel takes me to San Fran. The special thing about this property is that the entire staff seems to be on the same page when it comes to the guests. Truly unique.
"Love this hotel and staff!"
I love Kimpton hotels, and the Palomar in SF is absolutely wonderful! The staff is amazingly kind and thoughtful. The rooms are nice, bathroom are great, complimentary wine happy hour every night is great and the location is perfect. It's close to Chinatown, the Financial District and Little Italy. Highly recommend this hotel to business travelers and families. You can get a goldfish in your room! Thanks, Josh, for making my stay so great!
