"You get what you pay for."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Average hotel experience at best. Stayed in the 6th floor which had an AWFUL smell of some sort of chemicals. Burned when breathed in. Was not “taken care of” (as the front desk staff put it) until the following day. If you’re between this one and another hotel, choose the other. Hopefully you have a better experience.

"Exceptional Experience"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My stay at the Kimpton Palomar was incredible. I was traveling with my partner and let the hotel know we were celebrating a special occasion and they upgraded our room. We were also granted an early check in and late check out since we were only in San Diego for a total of 26 hours. The room was beautiful and the staff was all super friendly and accommodating. The pool area was really nice too. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others and I would stay here again for sure.

"Amazing"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Staff was incredibly friendly and attentive to detail. Tatum welcomes us with a warm welcome and when she noticed we had just missed the complimentary wine, she invited us to enjoy some at the restaurant on site, which we took advantage of and enjoyed very much. When we called for support or to place an order for room service, everyone was friendly, quick to respond and made recommendations, which we appreciated as well. Such an incredible stay and we will definitely return in the future.

"Great Service"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Nice modern rooms. Valet people were great as were the desk personnel. Needed a repair of the toilet which was completed in a timely manner. Ate at the hotel restaurant. Food was average and would like to see an expanded menu. Thought that the servers were more interested in selling alcohol than food. I don't think they like going up and down the stairs. Overall liked the experience. Great downtown location with easy access to food and shopping by walking.
