Kimpton Hotel Palomar San Diego, San Diego
Not really so "chic" a little dowdy.
Poorly designed shower spilled water outside shower area. Took two calls to get towels. Never did get maid service. Room was quiet. Staff courteous. Restaurant was good.

Great price and location...service no so much
Checking in was a pretty difficult process and took upwards of 20 minutes.

Great hotel and wonderful staff
This is an amazing hotel. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The bed is super comfortable and almost everything is excellent.

Hotel is ina busy area, so it's fairly noisy. Bathroom need non skid floor mat, longer shower curtsin, waste basket and ventilation vents. Otherwise, decent modern design, minimalistic approach, very pleasant.

Nice Hotel, Nice Staff.
Came to San Diego to see Steven WIlson at the House of Blues. The Kimpton Palomar Hotel is right next door to the venue. Almost everything about my trip was great. Very nice and clean room, very nice and helpful staff, xlnt room service with great food, lots of restaurants and stores nearby. I was a bit worried about homeless people near the hotel, but had no issues. I'll definitely stay here again on my next concert visit.
