The Palomar was a first class experience from check in to check out. The staff was very friendly
and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. They did a great job bringing an old hotel up to modern expectations. It is also in a good location in the middle of downtown Philly.
I would not hesitate to stay there again.

I love the Palomar - what a great experience. The hotel is in a great location with plenty of sites, food, drinks and venues near by. But even more amazing is the actual hotel - very modern and funky decor, amazing staff and speedy valet. The door always had a smiling face at it and they helped with directions or recommendations. I had an appetizer at the bar, the calamari, and it was delicious! There is a wine hour, where they served a red, a white and a fantastic summer vodka punch. I was so impressed with the overall stay. Check out the Philly Park and Ride package, where valet parking is included along with a pass on the Phlash bus - it was such a convenient package.

Room Tip: Corner rooms provide an awesome view and are tucked away from the hall.

This was our 2nd visit to the Palomar, and once again, it did not disappoint. From check-in, to check-out, our room was clean and quiet. The hotel was also packed due to the free concert for the holiday, as well as Beyoncé in town. They held Happy hour for 4 hours!

Staying at the Palomar in Philly is a special treat. I have stayed there a few times in the past, and it is always a pleasant experience. The staff is exceptional and make you feel welcome. A nice touch is the wine happy hour.

Room Tip: A street view is nice. Great restaurant too!
