I recently stayed at the Hotel Palomar in conjunction with the ALA midwinter conference.
I was very satisfied with my experience. I stay three nights. The third night was a night I added later and I was told when I booked that I may have to change rooms because the only available room was another room type. Well, when I checked in, the staff at the desk easily fixed it so I could keep the same room and i checked in easily. Thank you!
I had signed up for the Kimpton rewards and got my $10 minibar card. Nice touch.
Signing into the wireless was so easy compared to other hotels and it never expired the 3 nights I was there. Other hotels will make you login again each day.
I had a queen city view room (2109) which was beautiful and quiet.
I had a little time to kill before dinner, so I took advantage of the yoga mat and played a yoga program which was on the tv. Again, nice touch. I loved that.
I went down for happy hour and the free wine and had a great time. I was surprised how good the wine was.
The lobby was impeccably clean and the staff were very helpful. No complaints at all.
My only complaints are with the room, but they are minor. First, I wanted to take a hot bath the first night I was there because of the frigid temps outside and the plug for the tub would not keep the water in. I took it out completely and stuffed a washcloth in it. Hey, it worked!
Also, I had the water on to the max to fill the tub, but it never got quite hot enough. For a shower, it was fine, but for a bath, not so much.
Other than that, I had a wonderful stay and would stay there again.
