Palomar hotel was lovely! Location was great - and we loved cruising through the city on their bikes. They have a wine happy hour and free coffee in the morning. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The only negative was the fact that there was no parking (or maybe there was very expensive valet service?)

The people who built Hotel Palomar took an Art Deco armature and went to town with renovations, while smartly preserving pieces to allow guests an occasional experience of the original structure, with its lovely Moorish and Egyptian habiliments. Palomar is a very smart boutique hotel, whose current habiliments I think I can rightly call postmodern pastiche-- Dadaesque mustachioed Ben Franklin busts in the lobby; blown-up Pop Art verbiage adorning walls and mirrors; odd medieval touches in the bedrooms (think pillow cases that could pass for luxurious versions of Merry Men quivers) etc. Palomar's staffers clearly take pride in their unique 230 room palace. Everything sparkles and shines. The lobby--which has a working fireplace--is bright with natural light when it should be, offering a nice view of bustling 17th street between Chestnut and Walnut Streets. Rooms are sharp and elegant. The location is hard to beat. Walk anywhere you want-- a mile to the east you are in Old City, a mile in the other direction you're in the lovely Schuylkill Banks park. Given the Palomar's centrality, waiting for a cab for greater than a minute would be well nigh impossible. 1682 is the name of the New American restaurant attached to Palomar. Use it for breakfast, when you're planning your day, or happy hour before you begin your night. There are too many great restaurants in Philadelphia--some very nearby-- to trifle around with 1682 for dinner. Grab a Zagat guide and have fun.

Funky, cool and chic, I'm really digging the Kimpton Hotels I've been to thus far - San Francisco, Baltimore and now here in Philadelphia. The Hotel Palomar converts a historic downtown Philly space into a perpetual Austin Powers cocktail party. Speaking of which, I absolutely love their daily afternoon wine receptions! Guestrooms are smart and comfortable. Great centralized location to have Kimpton chill you out in!

Boutique style hotel located just a few blocks between City Hall and Rittenhouse Square.! It is located in the historic "Architects Building" in Philadelphia. Great bar "Square 1682" just off the lobby. Downside no pool.
