Location and Service-- Unbeatable

Pros: Location, facilities and service
Cons: The water pressure in the shower...
Location: Shop till you drop and walk walk walk
We stayed at the Kimpton Palomar over Thanksgiving break and we had a wonderful time 2 kids and 2 dogs included. Two words here: location and service! The hotel is located near Rittenhouse Square, steps away from historic Philly and all of the shops and restaurants and also access to the museums. But Service was also exceptional. Everyone from the reception desk to the house keeping were above and beyond nice and service oriented. The room was extremely comfortable and clean and the hotel was quiet and homy. Friday and Saturday nights we were greeted in the lobby by a complimentary wine happy hour with popcorn for the kids. The restaurant was delicious and we will definitely be staying there again.
