"Awesome rooftop pool/bar"
My family really enjoyed this hotel. Great central location. Close to shopping and restaurants. Comfortable rooms and awesome rooftop pool and bar. We enjoyed a nice afternoon on the rooftop in a cabana and great cocktails. We will definitely stay there again when we return to San Diego.
"Another Kimpton Delight, but a little pricy"
Gotta love those Kimpton properties and this one certainly doesn't disappoint. We came here for a long weekend and were delighted by the views from our suite and the delightful pool and food. If you want a great night sleep, this is also a wonderful hotel - their beds are super comfortable and the sheets are indulgent. The location is great, even though its a little bit of a tough block. My only hold back on giving it 5 stars is that some of the extra costs are substantial - like parking. And their standard rooms are a bit small, but the suites are amazing.
"Hosted My 30th Birthday Party!"
The Kimpton Palomar is not only a unique and appealing premier boutique hotel, but they also throw the best parties! We did it on their rooftop, which was perfect for a San Diego Party. Very classy yet fun, and Matt Barardi, the event coordinator is amazing. Very helpful and responsive, which is important when putting an event together. The food and staff were also great, and combined with the live entertainment we brought in that night it truly was the perfect party. Would definitely host there again.
"Nice boutique hotel - great staff"
On the night of my arrival, after checking in, I had an accident outside of the hotel when I went to explore. I fell and had many cuts to my hands. I came back inside the hotel for help and I am so thankful Micheal was working. He quickly gathered supplies and cleaned all my cuts and bandaged me up. His kindness and extra mile service made a bad event less awful. And then he told me - I am will be back at 2pm tomorrow if you need me to change your bandages. And I took him up on that - and he showed the same kindness even though I was no longer in shock. He is an amazing asset to this hotel. The rooms are modern and lovely. A bit small but the use of space is really well done. The customer service here is top notch. The restaurant is currently closed for remodeling but the catered food for the meetings was quite tasty. For those of us who attend alot of meetings at hotels know that banquet food is typically bland and acceptable. But the food here was like "hey -- did you try the bread pudding' it's fantastic" Hats off to the chef. But again the staff here are the real stars. Helpful, kind, caring, interested, They exemplify the small hotel experience. All the amenities you need without all the big resort bluster. Highly recommend. Hope to return as a vacationer.
Manager George and his staff were unbelievably helpful. First time at a Kimpton hotel but if this is the standard I will make sure they are a hotel brand I go back to! The social hour is a good way to meet others
