"From the initial purchase of my 3 night stay, all the way through checkout, my experience was fantastic. Hotel check-in was super easy, with helpful recommendations of local restaurants, and paid parking options. We were allowed to stretch our "loading zone only" parking in front of the hotel for several hours, since the hotel was at low occupancy during our stay. We enjoyed the complimentary "Wine Hour" on all three nights of our stay, along with the daily $10 food/beverage credit. The room was simple, but adequate, and we were upgraded to the floor just below the penthouse. When we needed a microwave or refrigerator, one was quickly brought to our room. When we needed ice in the room, a filled bucket was promptly brought to us. We were also allowed to check out 1 1/2 hours late, for no additional charge. The location is well situated between Little Italy, the waterfront, and the Gaslamp District. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Palomar."

Upon check in an altercation took place right behind my car and I had to drive around the block until things died down. Then when my family and I walked into the hotel another altercation took place with 2 totally different people as we were walking in. The hotel staff was extremely professional and friendly and I would say that this would’ve the highlight of the situation. However, the rooms were outdated and looked more like a military barracks. The hotel was very dark, signage was chipped and the room wasn’t clean. We left after 10 minutes and did not stay. I would not return to this specific location again but I would stay in another kimpton property as they are usually top notch.

Due to the COVID pandemic everything was closed except dinning. Location was dull. Parking was astronomical $50 per night. It would be nice to alert us before booking or selling this Hotel

The location. There was lots of homeless people wandering around. The room looked and felt grimy. We had to check in at 4pm only to find out the pool closed at 6pm. I checked out the same day. I think we only spent maybe 40 minutes there and decided to leave for home.
