Verified Reviews of Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia An Ihg Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"A bit dissappointed."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel in itself was very nice, however I choose this location from a wedding website and selected a king room with city view. .. Well I'd assume city view would mean I would be on the upper floor 18th or higher and able to see the city from my window. Instead I ended up on the 6th floor with a view of an alley. The staff were pleasant. I just feel I didn't get what I paid for per my reservations.
