Located in Center City neighborhood near Rittenhouse Square
Valet parking is pricey
Striking the right balance of modernity and comfort, the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia boasts luxurious amenities, spacious rooms and chic decor. Recent visitors adore the stylish accommodations: rooms are appointed with eye-catching green and purple accents. They also feature recycled glass tile bathrooms equipped with Luxury Atelier Bloem bath products, as well as signature Kimpton amenities like ultra-soft Frette linens and large flat-screen TVs. The hotel's cozy restaurant, Square 1682, also earns high praise for its inventive dishes. While visitors appreciated the cuisine, they weren't as pleased with the expensive valet parking fees at this Kimpton. Still, previous lodgers agree that the property's best asset is its phenomenal urban location within walking distance of Rittenhouse Square. And thanks to the IHG Rewards Club program, members will receive extra perks, such as complimentary Wi-Fi access and upgrades, for choosing to stay here.

  • AAA/CAA Four Diamond Awards 2019



These 1929 Art Deco offices in the upscale Rittenhouse neighborhood have been transformed into a cozily contemporary and LEED-certified eco-minded boutique hotel from Kimpton. ... Take note: You can often get rates that include a continental breakfast for just $1 more.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended


The 230-room Palomar near Rittenhouse Square Park is one of the city's chicest boutiques, with bold, sleek style, excellent service, and contemporary rooms with plush, comfortable beds.



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.
