Great place to stay. This is the third time I stay at the Palomar. The property is clean. Rooms, designed with a contemporary modern twist, are comfortable and well furnished with toiletries, robes, etc. The area around the hotel is safe, close to great restaurants, shopping, and walking distance from tourist attractions.

This is such a cute boutique hotel that is not overpriced. The valet was also not expensive. All of the staff was extremely kind and helpful. The rooms were clean and had a good amount a space as well as counter space in the bathroom. I will definitely be returning to this location!

Liked: Cleanliness
This was the worst hotel stay I have had in years. Some staff seemed to have a real issue with the fact that my trip was booked through Expedia. Check in was a big headache and even though I was the one to book all 5 rooms, I wasn't allowed to check into my own room right away. Colleen did not seem eager to help or provide much of a warm reception. Upon checkout - none of the people in my party could get an invoice printed for their room. On some rooms parking got billed to rooms that did not have anyone parking a car. The property itself seemed OK physically, however the air conditioning did not work in our room the first night (it was repaired promptly) and the fitness room was in bad need of some cleaning, with wet (sweaty?) towels laying around on the floor, water leaking from under the cooler, and equipment that had apparently not been wiped down in many uses. There was no coffee in rooms - just in the lobby. And the only ice machine in the hotel was in the fitness room. On the positive side, the door folks and parking folks were just great and very helpful and friendly. I did have easy and positive exchanges with other staff members as well including Brian from engineering and others at the front desk. It was a good location in the city. I felt this was not that great of a value for the money. I probably would not feel so strongly about all the negatives except the way my group was received upon our arrival was so crummy that it left a cloud over the whole stay.
