The Palomar San Diego, a Kimpton Hotel combines the best of two worlds: It’s within walking distance to everything the cultural center known as the 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 steakhouses to sushi are all within an eight-minute walk.

Rooms are contemporary and modern with standout touches, including Jerusalem limestone bathrooms with rainforest 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. Locavores should visit the lobby’s gastro lounge, Saltbox, which specializes in farm-fresh flavors and native ingredients.

I booked via TravelZoo because it waived the facility resort fee. However the hotel didn't recognize any IHG gold status benefits. The room was small, cleanliness was sub par for the amount charged.

Excellent service — everyone at front desk was friendly, helpful, welcomed all requests and answered all questions.

Bicycles are available for guest use. They pour a nice wine every evening between 5:00-6:00. There are several newspapers along with hot coffee in the lobby every morning. We had a glass of ice-cold water upon re-entering the hotel each time we came back from exploring San Diego.
