The Palomar San Diego, a Kimpton Hotel is within walking distance of everything the cultural center known as the Gaslamp Quarter has to offer. It is steps from some of San Diego’s most exciting nightlife. The House of Blues music venue is right next door, and 200 restaurants from steakhouses to sushi are all within an 8-minute walk.

The hotel offers all the signature Kimpton touches, including leopard-print robes and free happy hour wine tastings.

Rooms are contemporary and modern with standout touches, including Jerusalem limestone bathrooms with rainforest showers and Italian Frette linens on the beds.

Drinks and light meals are available at the hotel’s rooftop restaurant and pool deck, which also hosts DJ-led seasonal parties at the infinity pool. Locavores should visit the lobby’s gastro lounge, Saltbox, which specializes in farm-fresh flavors and native ingredients.

Small room; had to sit on bed to watch TV; cramped access to wardrobe; no linen sheets as advertised; bathroom door inadequate; desk staff did not automatically give us our Travelzoo discounts, had to negotiate to get them all.
