FROG FAMILY REVIEW
Kimpton Hotel Palomar San Diego*

What we love

  • A stylish, infinity-edged, heated rooftop pool is splash and lounge friendly, with sweeping city views bringing sleek SoCal style to your lily pad.
  • Carefully curated bath amenities, luxe robes, and lush linens.
  • The state-of-the-art fitness center, featuring Life Fitness cardio equipment, overlooks 5th Avenue so you can people watch the bustling city streets while you work out.
  • Tasty Mexican cuisine isn’t far away with tasty tacos and fun cantina vibes in-house at Curadero.
  • The Arriba Room, a hang-out space located upstairs from Curadero, is stocked with vintage arcade games, foosball, pool tables, and more.
  • Pets are recognized as part of the family at Kimpton and even provided with a comfy pet bed, a bowl, and doggie amenities like treats and water bottles in the room to help them feel welcome.
  • Situated on the northern edge of the Gaslamp Quarter, with numerous shops, bars, and restaurants within a short hop.

Keep in Mind

  • Self-parking is only available at partner lots (one is across the street). Valet parking is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week at the hotel.
  • Pet-friendly – no fees or size restrictions! If they fit in the elevator, they can come!
  • There is a limited number of connecting rooms available; be sure to include that in your special request if booking multiple rooms.

Frog Family Tips

  • For a truly luxurious stay, consider booking a Skyline Suite on one of the upper floors for sweeping city views and a private, furnished balcony to enjoy the California sun.
  • Start your mornings right with complimentary coffee or tea after utilizing the provided in-room yoga mat to find your center.
  • Hop down to the front desk to rent complimentary custom-designed Kimpton PUBLIC bikes to cruise the city in style.
  • Unwind from a busy day of sightseeing at the daily evening social from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. while sipping on a craft cocktail.
  • Entertainment may be as close as right next door: the hotel is connected to House of Blues San Diego which offers all-ages shows.

Best For

  • Travelers that want the convenience of a downtown location where attractions are walkable that also have an eye for and appreciation for sleek details that really define a memorable stay like in-room yoga mats, picture-worthy views, luxury amenities, and a rooftop pool.
