Cons: I wasn't a fan of parking not being included as the hotel has its own underground parking garage but this is considered a valet charge.
Overall a very nice hotel. Good location in terms of nearby bars and restaurants and not too far from the wharfside. The staff was excellent, very accessible and quick to provide answers to any questions.

Great location.

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Location and it was very quiet
Cons: Restaurant/Bar not very friendly and hours were strange and yet it is a hotel bar/restaurant
Location: Walking distance to Ferry Building, Wharf, Chinatown, Ballpark, shopping and restaurants.
Great location for all the things we wanted to see and do in San Francisco. Matt, the doorman was sooooo helpful and always a pleasure to se upon our return.

Nice hotel, excellent staff, convenient location.

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: Location, staff
My wife and I traveled to San Francisco to celebrate out anniversary and were very pleased with Hotel Palomar. The location can't be beat. The hotel is just off Market Street and very close to transportation (BART, streetcar and cable car lines all within a block), and there's lots of shopping in the area along with a number of good restaurants (try Salt House and Annabelle's). The staff was young, pleasant and very helpful. My only quibble is with the bed. I didn't find it very comfortable, but my wife didn't have any problem with it, so maybe it was just me.

Thanks for the praise of the staff. I'll take a look at the bed and see what we can do. They are relatively new, so I am glad you brought the issue to my attention to investigate.

Great location in central district. Wine reception was a nice touch with lots of very nice wine. Didn't know it was dog friendly but this wasn't a problem

Good location but overpriced

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Great location for exploring Union Square, Financial District and Chinatown. However,room seemed basic for the money we paid and we had chosen to upgrade to a deluxe. Room was small and bathroom was basic and dated. Not sure we'd stay here again. We didn't feel this lived up to the boutique description given

I'm glad you enjoyed the location. We have several plans for guest room enhancements coming in just a few more weeks, including new furniture, new TVs, art and other items that will be sure to please. Come back again and check out our new look.

This location is not up to the standards of other Kimpton hotels I have stayed at. The toilet barely worked. Housekeeping never arrived before 4:00 pm, and the one time we needed something extra, we had to get it ourselves.

Larry: I'm sorry we didn't meet the service expectations you have come to know from Kimpton. I will be meeting with my team later today to discuss your comments and work on a plan to ensure everything is in place to exceed guest expectations as opposed to falling short.

Lovely Hotel, but it's Noisy!

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Pros: spacious room
Cons: reduce the bar/restaurant noise
The hotel is lovely and I love the location. The room was spacious and beautiful and the staff was nice. Having said that this was hands down the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed at! Unfortunately my room was on the 5th floor which is also where the bar/restaurant is located. The bar has an outdoor patio and the music was not only loud it had a persistent techno beat which made my skin crawl. I called down to the front desk around 10:30 pm and was told the bar "usually" shuts down around 11pm. I noticed a lot of youngish hipsters and European vacationers staying at the hotel. I think if I had fallen into one of those groups I probably would have been fine with the noise. I was on a quick business trip and had to catch a flight out at 6am so it wasn't ideal for me.

Thanks for the positive praise of the location and team. I am so sorry that we had the noise issue during your stay. Our new bar has quickly climbed to a top destination spot in San Francisco. We are actively changing some of our processes as well as investing in some sound barriers that should help resolve the issue for future stays.
