"Staff is great, but way overpriced"
My fiance and I were in Dallas to by an engagement ring. We had originally booked a Courtyard room, but I decided to splurge and spend 3 times as much on this hotel. While the hotel was clean and the staff superb, I was more than disappointed at our room. I booked a "Premier King" room, but the room was much smaller than what we would have had at the […] Courtyard. When I asked one of the staff what the difference was between a King and Premier King, her answer was a shrug. There is less than one foot between the end of the bed and the television console, so if you have to get up in the middle of the night, it is an adventure. There were no additional amenities in this room than we would have gotten at the Courtyard, again for 1/3 the price. We ate breakfast at the restuarant in the hotel, and while the food was good, it wasn't worth the almost $60 we paid for french toast and a side of eggs. I enjoy roominess in a room - it totally felt cramped and closed in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Golf Trip"
Check in was quick and easy. Was able to check in our groups golf clubs in the lobby, safe and easy - so we didnt have to bring them up and down from our room. There were 3 of us staying in a room with two double beds, plenty of room. The room was clean as well as all areas that we saw in the hotel. The room A/C worked very well and was not too loud. […] After our round of golf in the afternoon, we took a cab 4 miles away to Top Golf, a two story range facility with full bar and restaurant - we played until 1 am and easily got a cab back to the hotel. Check out was easy and quick, the valet tab was not too bad, about average priced. Did not use the pool but could see from our room that you could easily swim good laps, probably 25 meters long and about 4 lanes wide. Would definitely stay here again for another golf outing with friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful Hotel, really pleasant service. Nice mixed-use mall next door, but not much else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable hotel with great service."
Staff went out of their way to make us welcome. Enjoyed the decor and comfort level. Restaurant had unique menu that was at first unusual, but turned out delicious. Gym was small but had good quality machines and weights. Pool was crowded in very hot afternoon in Dallas, but friendly. Took two adult children to a concert and to see relatives . Hotel […] was a big plus. I would definitely stay again. Only problem was valet a little slow and brought wrong car once. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Made my business trip feel like a vacation"
Nicest staff in the world. Love the natural light in the bathrooms. Plenty of restaurants you can walk to if you don't want to drive or eat in the hotel. You can also walk to the movie theater. Great coffee in the morningGenuine Expedia guest review
Intimate boutique hotel. Very cozy and clean. Loved the crisp decor, the wine hour, the great pool and bar. Was perfect getaway for anniversary.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel Palomar Dallas Lives up to Kimpton Standard"
Great hotel with fantastic service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"more thought given to mattresses and bedding"
The hotel was very nice, very clean, but you had a choice of hard or harder regarding the pillows and the comforter is so hefty and warm that we all roasted. The second night I turned the AC to 63 and stripped the sheet off of the comforter and used two sheets together,but for the price - there should be better options. And I don't have back issues, […] but my back ached the next morning. Needs to be more thought given to mattresses and bedding. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We host our annual fundraiser at the Palomar and have for 6 years. They do a fantastic job. The people are great. The food is fabulous. The rooms are nice and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Style in Dallas"
Comfortable and friendly. Beautiful heated outdoor pool. Excellent value. Only valet parking but perhaps, since our room was briefly not ready when we arrived after 3pm, we were comped the $20/day.Genuine Expedia guest review

Staff are polite and quick in responding to request. The on-site restaurant is superb and uses local ingredients (a bit pricy though)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Memorable Customer Service"
I really loved my stay at this hotel. The staff were thoughtful and considerate. Amazingly, after I had left I suddenly remembered that I had left a jacket. When I called the hotel, they went up to my room on the spot to discover that I had indeed left a jacket. So i doubled back and they had it at the front desk for me. I am so very grateful. The […] 214 restaurant is wonderful, making everything in a center stage kitchen in front of your eyes if you want. They are just beginning a new menu which is delicious and I wish them great success with it. If I had to criticize one thing it would be to rethink the down comforters on the beds that kept me a little too warm. Maybe they're more suited for Canada than Dallas, TX. Offering guests a cotton blanket instead is in order. Granted, if I would have asked them for one during my stay, I am sure that they would have gotten it for me--and I did use the afghan that was provided. Overall, a lovely stay in a great city.

"Unresponsive to issues in my room"
I have stayed with Palomar before and have always been happy. Not so much this time. THere was a smoke alarm in my room incessantly beeping. I called to have it fixed but since I was about to hop in the shower asked them to wait a bit to send someone up. They sent someone up immediately so I asked them to come back. They never showed up again. I called […] again. The problem was not fixed. I had trouble reporting the problem each time because the cordless phone in my room was not holding a charge. I also reported this each time. They never fixed the phone either. Pretty disappointing experience for a hotel of this caliber and not consistent with my previous experience at this property either.

we found the hotel very nice -staff more than helpful. Our room was clean and very comfortable with robes that made the late evening warm and relaxful. The wine hour was nice and gave us time to meet other guests. They also are pet friendly - so we saw about ten or so pets.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Facility and Staff"
This hotel has been excellent for my business and personal travel. The Palomar is confidently located for most any need, staffed by helpful personnel and pet friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Dallas Area Hotel"
I have stayed at the Palomar multiple times and always have a good experience. Contemporary pet friendly boutique type hotel with an excellent spa, bar and restaurant convenienly located near SMU and Highland Park area. Complementary beverages in lobby in the afternoon completes a very nice social vibe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Another Great Evening at Hotel Palomar"
This was our 2nd stay and Hotel Palomar and it was as wonderful as our first. The only issue we had (that was really a non-issue) was that the hotel's signature zebra print robes weren't in our room. We called and they sent them up right away...literally...they were there in under 5 minutes. Also, I called the hotel prior to our arrival and requested […] a room on a high floor with a view and they didn't disappoint. We highly recommend Hotel Palomar and will definitely return.

"hotel palomar dallas"
I booked a king deluxe room on hotels.com. I was dismayed to learn on arrival that there were no king rooms available and that the hotel had no obligation to provide such a room. In addition, there were no minibar keys available. On the whole, although the room was nice and clean, the service and the room was certainly not worth the price and the attitude […] of the staff did not help. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Staff, great location...but"
The hotel staff was extraordinary. When their shuttle was delayed, they paid a cab to take me to my destination. The only problem i had was the outside road noise. The noise seems to travel through their air conditioning ducts. And I was not on the expressway, but facing east facing towards the adjacent strip center. This did not allow for a good night […] sleep. This problem was significant enough that I won't stay there in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel Palomar in Dallas, Texas"
This was a wonderful place to stay. The service was great and the location and property were better than expected. I would highly reccomend this hotel and will stay there again when I return to Dallas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stay here at least twice a year and are never disappointed with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff as well as the upscale atmosphere of the hotel. My husband left his blazer behind in a hotel in Austin so the valet at The Palomar lent him his for the evening on a moments notice. Now that's service!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very brief stay but made a big impression. Got in early morning same day as check out. Staff very friendly and helpful for 1:30 in tha AM. Liked the modern zen decor...rooms were clean...was able to get my morning room service card out in time before bed. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Wake up call was on time as was my room service. Great hotel! […] I highly recommend. I think nicest and nearest hotel to SMU. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel Palomar Dallas"
I was there for two days on business and really enjoyed the hotel. The staff was attentive and courteous. They upgraded my room and the only issue I had was that the upgraded room was just above the garbage area and the trucks woke me up at 3am collecting the garbage. Otherwise, it was perfect!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Palomar Dallas-a better choice could be made"
My overall experience was not what I expected. I took my children on a weekend getaway and chose this hotel based on the photos and reviews. Cons: shallow pool in the shade most of the daylight hours, small tub-so no bubble bath, small room, live ant in bathroom floor-not a big deal as I am from the country-but a surprise nevertheless, drab colors of […] carpet and curtains-not warm and inviting, beds uncomfortable, no microwave to warm up items, valet parking was mandatory-extra charge for this requirement, shampoo/lotion/conditioner smelled like ground black pepper, Okay, now for the pros-as I like finishing with the positive: Service was fantastic-from the valet parking to the pool attendant and all in between. Supurb!! The wine hour was very pleasant, pool lounges comfortable, sangria was great, quick valet pick-up, easy check-in/out, pool layout was cozy, hair dryer/flat iron brought to the room quickly by housekeeping, and clean. I had saved all summer to make this getaway memorable for my children and this hotel experience did not have the wow factor that I expected from the photos. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A truly excellent hotel"
I am an avid traveller and I have stayed in numerous types of hotels, ranging from a Comfort Inn to your 4 or 5 star rated hotels. Hotel Palomar ranks in my Top 3, as of this moment. Its location in downtown Dallas, the decor of the lobby, the warmth and courteous front desk staff, the pool area, the restaurant (Central 214), the room itself..... I […] can go on and on. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone, especially during the summer months, due to their summer specials on room rates. If any of you encounter Michael at the front desk, he will take care of you. He truly embodied customer service and professionalism. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Recent Stay at Hotel Palomar"
My husband and I decided to take a romantic mini-vacation & decided that Hotel Palomar fit the bill. The front desk receptionist was excellent as was the dog behind the front desk. (The hotel is very dog friendly & also offers a goldfish companion if you are traveling alone). The hotel room itself was pretty standard with some nice bedding. Sort of […] an upgraded Marriott. I would rate the hotel between a 3 and a 3 1/2. The pool area was nice, however, the pool service was slow and somewhat disorganized. The drinks were fine but the food was just 'ok'. The main problem we encountered was with the valet service. Upon returning our car Saturday evening we were walking into the hotel & one of the attendants actually backed right into by husband (in a car) and pinched the side of my foot under the tire. We didn't even get a 'sorry' or 'are you ok'? The attendants all just looked at us with their mouths hanging open. After returning home I emailed management about the incident & was responded to promptly by the general manager. He apologized profusely, comped our room & said that he was initiating an investigation into the incident. My feelings remain mixed about the establishment. I received 40% off the rack room rate. Had I paid full price I think I would have been really disappointed. That being said, the reaction from the management regarding the 'incident' was sincere & immediate. I might give them another chance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Staff and Array of Services"

"Very nice Hotel. Very friendly and helpful people working at hotel."
This hotel was very nice and upscale. People working there were very helpful, kind, great service. Will go back at a good price. It is very close to my daughter's college SMU.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel had some nice features such as the wine happy hour in the lobby, the infinity pool and spa. However, the pool experience was ruined by the fact that there is some sort of business next to the hotel that has a very loud generator that spewed diesel smell which was quite overwhelming. The generator noise was so loud that it drowned out the music […] playing in the pool area. Definitely NOT relaxing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
