Incredible service, food, and drinks!
I could not recommend a wedding venue more than the Hotel Palomar. From the minute that we met Allison and her team, my husband and I were treated like actual royalty. The team’s attention to detail was incredible and shined through even in our first meeting. Not only did we receive a detailed tour of the ballroom, hotel, and guest rooms but we left with a goodie bag of cookies with a handwritten note from the Executive Chef congratulating us on our engagement!Sent on 07/19/2020
The food is unbelievable and is sure to wow your guests. The menu choices are very expansive which meant we got to choose items that aren’t often seen at other weddings. Hot tip: the red wine braised short ribs were life-changing.
The bar was also spectacular - good quality liquor choices and well made drinks by the bartenders.
But the service, my goodness this might be the best part. I am the sort of person with endless questions and Allison was incredibly patient and responsive throughout the entire planning process. Also, during the entire wedding weekend the in-room dining and housekeeping teams took outstanding care of everyone in our room block.
There was legitimately nothing that I would change about our wedding day because of the incredible care and hard work put in by the Hotel Palomar team! Choosing to host your wedding at the Palomar should be a no-brainer.

Fantastic Customer Service
Lindsey at Hotel Palomar is fantastic! We booked a block through Hotel Palomar for our April wedding and she is one of the most responsive vendors we have worked with.Sent on 03/07/2019
She was very accommodating with the block and was great about answering all our questions (since we've never done a hotel block before). Hotel Palomar is a BEAUTIFUL hotel and the rooms are cozy and welcoming.
Also, it is in one of the best areas of the city so it is a great place to send your friends and family. They have so many options in walking distance from their hotel.
Thank you to Lindsey for making the process an easy and stress-free part of the wedding planning process.

Couldn't be any happier
We started planning for our wedding 4 months prior to the wedding date. It was very challenging and we had no idea how to organize everything in such a short time. We saw few vendors before we ended up walking into the Kimpton. The moment we entered the hotel and met Alexa we knew that this is the place we want to have our wedding at. The hotel is very nice and the ballroom was just perfect for our 120 guests. The staff was phenomenal and we had unlimited help whenever we asked for it. Alexa helped us with all the tiny details and she was very thorough. Prior to our big day she made sure to cover all the details that we didn't even knew existed. Every singly guest who was at our wedding commented on how beautiful the venue was and how awesome the staff was.Sent on 07/09/2019
I really can't thank these people enough and i would definitely recommend this place.
