The Palomar San Diego, a Kimpton Hotel combines the best of two worlds: It’s within walking distance to everything the famous Gaslamp Quarter has to offer, and it has the signature Kimpton touches like leopard-print robes and free happy hour wine tastings. 

A stay here means you are steps from some of San Diego’s most exciting nightlife. The House of Blues music venue is right next door, and 200 restaurants, from steak houses to sushi joints, are all within an eight-minute walk.

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

Libations and light fare are available at the hotel’s rooftop restaurant and pool deck, which also hosts DJ-led seasonal parties at the infinity pool. Foodies should visit the lobby’s gastro lounge, Saltbox, which specializes in farm-fresh flavours and local ingredients.

Hotel was centrally located in the heart of downtown off 5th Ave. Lots of shops, restaurants and bars close by within walking distance. Take 5th all the way down to the Convention Center or Broadway all the way down to USS Midway both have ferries to take you across to Coronado Island. Hotel was clean and staff was very helpful and nice. We stayed in a king suite with an amazing view of the city and water. Beds were firm, sheets were soft. Our only complaint were the pillows. They were a little to stiff and flat for our liking. Other than that it was a great stay for 3 nights and would diffidently stay again.

Lovely hotel, nice staff, comfortable room (1209). The bed was a bit soft for my taste, but others might enjoy that. The first night was better than second; for some reason, the heat was just not coming up no matter how high I pushed it, so I slept in my sweater. The next morning when I asked about the heat, they apologized and took off the resort/facility fee from our bill.

Yes, the hotel is downtown, but $49 for parking? Too much!
