Hotel Palomar is where Art in Motion is alive in every detail. Beautifully unpretentious style, check. Luxury services and amenities, yes. Warm Kimpton Hotel hospitality, for sure.

A distinctive, inviting character that welcomes you into the heart of downtown San Diego - an easy, sunny place where everything is possible and you never want to leave.

Our boutique hotel is on the edge of the Gaslamp Quarter, adjacent to the House of Blues, Copley Symphony Hall, San Diego Civic Theatre, San Diego City Hall and a stunning number of shops and restaurants.

Sea World, Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo are just minutes away, as are world-class golfing, sailing, surfing and even horse racing (at legendary Del Mar).

San Diego is also home to one of the most vibrant restaurant cultures in the country. It begins here, at Hotel Palomar's Saltbox Dining & Drinking, showcasing the art of cocktailing, the art of food, the art of design and most especially the art of hospitality.
