Now a member of the Kimpton Hotel group, the Palomar (formerly the Sè San Diego) retains its luxurious ambience. Rooms have flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, and Brazilian walnut floors, and the full-service spa features steam rooms, soaking tubs, and a special spa suite for couples. Cabanas and daybeds ring the infinity pool at the rooftop lounge, where you can mingle with locals, who love the scene. The hotel provides complimentary transportation within a 3-mile
radius, and a wine hour takes place each evening from 5 to 6.
