Stayed there overnight for an event in town. Great and clean guest rooms. Front desk was helpful. The restaurant had delicious food. Great location. Shopping area close. Wish they had a driveway entrance as I blocked traffic to do valet.

Arrived on a Friday afternoon. From check-in to check-out the hotel staff make it incredibly obvious that they are there to serve. I was in on business and while they don't offer a business center the staff was glad to print anything I requested for my meeting the next day. The location is excellent and close to everything. The beds...

I stayed here for a business trip during the week and found this property perfect! They do an evening happy hour nightly and spacious rooms for being right in the middle of the city. I appreciate a hotel trying to be a little more "green" and it is nice to see the full size bottles for shampoo/conditioner instead of the...

Great hotel and location!! Rooms are specious and modern. Even though it could be pricey, sign up in their website for better rates or check out Hotel Tonight for better offers. You can always trust you will have a great stay. Walk to restaurants and shops in the area. The hotel restaurant too!!

I recently went to Philadelphia and had to stay in the Rittenhouse Square area, so decided to try the Kimpton Hotel Palomar. It was a very good decision---I enjoyed the experience very much!

Great hotel and location, staff was great, they had wine in Lobby at 5 PM daily. The room was very nice. They do charge 50 dollars for valley parking. I used uber to get around. Very accommodating and helped with directions and whatever our needs were.

Stayed here for five nights while helping our daughter find an apartment in Rittenhouse Square. Super location, was able to walk everywhere including restaurants. Very friendly staff, excellent bar. Would have liked a bit more lighting in our room, which was otherwise very quiet and comfortable.

Great location. There is not much parking in front of the hotel and it can take 20 minutes for the valets to recover your car from very expensive parking. You can save a little money by dropping your bags in front of the hotel and parking at a garage two blocks away without much additional trouble. We love the wine...
