If Philly really is The City of Brotherly Love, then Hotel Palomar rolls out the red carpet for guests’ who are treated like family. Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar give’s a Rocky Balboa one two punch serving as a reigning champ in areas of décor, service, entertaining and dining in The City of Philadelphia.
As a designer and hospitality expert, design and service go hand in hand as we assess this travel accommodation. Hotel Palomar stays true to the history of this founding city by paying tribute to those like Ben Franklin on whimsy pillows and lacquered heads in the hotel lobby. The room motif and design elements pull from its metropolitan surroundings by incorporating the addition of metal and reflecting surfaces with a combination of softer patterns and plush fabrics such as leather ascents, chevron headboards, striped curtains, and velvet chairs. To give the guest a progressive feel while remaining true to its design core of perfecting the perfect balance of industrial luxury and modern comfort.
In the center, of one of the trendiest and exclusive areas in Philadelphia; Rittenhouse Square, Hotel Palomar is centrally located to Rittenhouse Row shopping, premier dining, entertainment and walkable nightlife.
Kimpton Hotels pride’s itself on a level of service equally as spectacular as the caliber of design in each of their hotels. Hotel Palomar failed to disappoint from the moment we arrived. Valet parking was on hand as we enter the premise as our every need and whim was immediately satisfied. Every section of this hotel is innovatively attended to; even the elevators provided some serious eye candy by placing artistic murals in each of the often-neglected interior vestibules. Our pets’ were treated like canine royalty each a fitted with individual beds, bowls and treats in this pet friendly environment. The bathrooms were simplistically clean and completed with ETRO products and animal printed robes and slippers. Forgetful minds need not worry as the hotel stocks each bathroom with cards listing toiletry products on hand if needed.
If your looking to wine down after a long day of sight seeing. Hotel Palomar provides complimentary wine receptions with seasonal white and red blends and truffle popcorn during the hour of 5-6PM. Not ready to greet the day? Stumble downstairs to the living room for complimentary coffee and tea served from 6-9AM on weekdays and 7-10AM on weekends or visit the adjacent restaurant Square 1682 a hip atmosphere that pays homage to its history and location.
