The Hotel Palomar Philadelphia is the first Kimpton property in the City of Botherly Love (and Sisterly Affection) and a welcome addition to your choice of higher-end lodging options.
The Palomar is centrally located on south 17th St within a short walk to lots of great restaurants, and a quick cab ride from the Amtrak station and Philly's famed "Gayborhood" (with rainbow-color street signs proclaiming this neighborhood's orientation quite clearly.) The hotel's beautiful stylish decor and super professional yet friendly service are two major attributes.
The other is the gorgeous rooms and views of the city from many of the higher up floors. The soaking tub, with huge windows, are an exhibitionist's dream. Don't worry though: We prudes can draw the curtains.
Kimpton is one of the world's gay-friendliest collections of hotel properties and restaurants. Their In-Touch Loyalty program provides oodles of benefits, incuding free WiFi, just for signing up and 'coming out' as a gay hotel guest.
