The staff was awesome. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Always available to help recommend restaurants, with gifts for the kids. They even brought a goldfish to our room! They got us a SUV sedan for the airport costing the same as a taxi! Thanks. Our experience was great. Would definitely stay here again. Room was very clean.

My brother and I had a wonderful visit last month at the Palomar. Many things go into making a stay at a hotel a pleasure or a disaster - the staff, facility and location to name just a few. First and foremost, we found the staff to be outstanding - warm, welcoming, gracious, helpful. It was so nice to be...

Our last hotel stay was at Bridge Street(oddly next to the palomar). It was my buddy's birthday, and an early St.Patty's celebration. Right off the bat, we were treated like VIP's by miguel. At that moment...we felt like we walked in with suits & ties. He recommended to checkout hub 51, andy's club and three dots and a dash. Sable...

Traveling alone on a business trip, all I want is wine, wifi, and a comfy bed. The Palomar went above and beyond my expectations, with their lovely wine hour (which, when I was late by 20 minutes they still offered me a glass on the house), free wifi for members (free to sign up), and a bed I didn't want...

I fly in late a lot and the restaurant/bar is always going with great food and drinks so that is a nice benefit. All hand-crafted cocktails. Staff is attentive and can't beat the location. Room prices are reasonable too
