Hotel Palomar Philadelphia Review

The Palomar perhaps marks the apex of Philadelphia's recent surge of hip hotels; three brightly colored busts of Ben Franklin greet you in this Kimpton property's chic lobby alongside a comfy fireside living room. Touches of purple enliven the bright guest rooms, which have stylish modern furnishings. But it's not all about looks—the hotel staff is über friendly and helpful. Cool amenities abound: autosensor temperature controls, iHomes, locally made products in the minibar, and leopard-print robes. The hotel offers free yoga class on Wednesday nights and sponsors a 3-mile "Rocky run" to the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps on Wednesday mornings. Kids get a free toy at check-in, child-sized leopard-print robes, and "cookie currency," which enables them to purchase cookies and milk from room service. Complimentary wine is served at 5 pm in the lobby.
