4 star?
My partner and I were traveling with our pupppy so we were excited that it was a pet friendly hotel. They offer bowls and bedding for your puppy but they are just recycled nothing too special. They charge a 79 accommodation fee each day you stay at check in. They do not do everyday housekeeping, my partner and had to change our own sheets. This is definitely not a 4 star hotel more of a 3 star. The rooms and bathrooms are very small. If we were to travel back to philly would not stay here again.

Pretty quiet and clean place!
The room was fairly quiet (admittedly I'm comparing to a few hotels in NYC I recently stayed at where people honk non-stop). I could hear the occasional car with music blasting but I think the area is pretty quiet. I also didn't hear anything from other rooms. The overall hotel and room were very clean and inviting. What more could I ask for?

Terrible construction zone
Stayed in a premium room with jetted tub & windows that mostly overlooked a construction zone. TERRIBLE LOUD noise ALL night .. on a Friday night into Saturday morning.. at one in the morning there was literally three cement trucks, heavy equipment & workers yelling until the morning. Slept maybe three hours & had a two hour drive ahead of me. I’m really disappointed as I’ve stayed at the Palomar numerous times. They should notify guests about the construction, before they reserve a room , or comp the valet parking or offer a meal in the restaurant . I won’t be returning until that construction is done & I really do love the hotel .
