“A world of sophistication and luxury” -- Frommer's

Why We Love It

  • A posh, urban getaway in the heart of San Diego's lively Gaslamp Quarter
  • Nightly social hour with complimentary wine
  • Less than 10 minutes by car from Balboa Park and its world-famous San Diego Zoo
  • Over 200 restaurants within an eight-minute walk


Hotel Palomar San Diego combines the best of two worlds: It’s within walking distance to everything the cultural center Gaslamp Quarter has to offer and it has the signature, thoughtful Kimpton touches like a yoga mat in each guest room and a free nightly social hour with complimentary wine. 

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 rain-forest showers and Italian Frette linens on the beds.

Libations and light fare are available at the hotel’s rooftop pool deck on weekends, while Curadero, the hotel's new restaurant, offers traditional and street food-inspired Mexican dishes in a casual, cantina-style atmosphere.

Some maintenance issues should have been dealt with regarding the draperies in the room. (Minor) but they were ripped and hanging off the rod,And didn’t close completely. Unattractive. Told front desk on the way out On the positive side the location is in the midst of the gas lamp and walking distance to many places.

The place was beyond lovely. But the hotel was very much relying on the looks and location and decided to forego customer service.

Eric at check in was exceptional. Beverages in the lobby were a plus.
Other Comments
The hotel room was just not quite clean. Staff was not exceptionally friendly or helpful, not what I expect in a high end boutique hotel. Hall and rooms were uncomfortably warm.

Clean, modern hotel with lots of amenities and close to Gaslamp area.
Other Comments
Aside from one great staff member who helped us on the first night, most staff were cold and did not take the time to get to know me. It felt as if they were trying to maintain a “proper” demeanor, which is of course desirable, but they neglected to actually care about the customer and their needs. The few smiles I received seemed very forced. What a bummer for the very nice gentleman working the evening shift on the day we checked in. He was very kind. Good for him for keeping up a genuinely positive attitude despite his surroundings .

The showers have a half glass door and the rest is exposed, any showering results in water all over the floor outside of shower.
