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.

We recently completed our wedding weekend at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar and everything was exceptional! Allison was very organized, handled all details of the weekend, and was terrific to work with. No request was too much for her. All of the hotel personnel were so terrific everyone felt like family by the end of the weekend (including the wedding guests.) From Emma Jane, who coordinated the actual wedding and day after brunch, to Gonzalo, who took care of everyone the entire weekend, and Sarah at the front desk, who handled a myriad of miscellaneous requests promptly, we could not be more pleased! The nightly hotel wine hour was a great opportunity for the wedding guests to mingle. All of the food and cocktails provided by Sable for various events was fantastic – big thanks to Amber and Kyle. I could go on and on but you get the idea – Hotel Palomar is a superb venue in all respects!Sent on 09/08/2018
