  • My husband and I just had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar on 2-29-20. After nearly giving up on having the wedding of our dreams due to our smaller budget and particular venue accommodation requirements, my mom stumbled upon the Palomar through this site! We reached out via email, and Erin, our lovely coordinator, got back to us almost immediately. When we expressed our budget and concerns, Erin really listened, and then offered and explained to us the wedding packages the Palomar offers. They have several packages that offer “all inclusive” features such as 2-3 course meals, coffee and tea stations, open bar and sodas, and other necessary items (chairs, tables, linens, flatware and barware). These packages were exactly what we were looking for to stick around our budget, and to top everything off, the fee per person includes service fees/gratuity. Erin was totally transparent with every conversation we had, which is SO refreshing in the wedding indu... Read more

  • We worked with Lauren Fitzpatrick and she was wonderful. She was very responsive to our requests and was very helpful with planning our wedding. The staff at the wedding was friendly and helpful. The ballroom was beautiful and fit our wedding group of 80 perfectly.

  • Having my wedding at Kimpton Hotel Palomar was the best decision I have made. All the staff taking care of us was wonderful. Erin, our event planner made the whole experience even better than what I had imagined. I had a small wedding but the experience that Erin created for us did not make the wedding feel small at all. I was thankful to have had my wedding at Hotel Palomar and so thankful for Erin.

  • From the first inquiry to the end of our wedding weekend stay, the staff at Hotel Palomar was accommodating, kind, and helpful. This boutique hotel simultaneously feels like home and like a luxurious indulgence! It is clean, well decorated, and unique! We celebrated our wedding ceremony this past weekend at Hotel Palomar and worked with Gary and Kito. They were a wonderful team, making sure our day went off without a hitch- and kept me out of my groom's sight! Our ceremony was intimate and charming, certainly due in part to the space. The ballroom is so pretty, and really can be transformed to fit any theme/ color scheme. Our vendors also worked directly with the hotel staff (usually Gary) and their communication was easy and productive. We also worked with David and Jessica for our room block. While only briefly working with Jessica, David was harassed with our many silly questions and was very helpful and responsive. We are already planning to stay at Hotel Palomar to celebra...

  • Entire experience was seamless. Booking my event was fun and no detail was missed. Up until the day of my wedding I had constant communication with Lauren and I knew I was in good hands. Day of my wedding the team was FANTASTIC and everything went flawlessly. Ballroom is gorgeous, the set up elegant, the service and food was top notch. My guests still talk about how gorgeous the hotel is and how good the food was. I did not have to worry about a thing as Lauren and the banquet team were on top of everything. Thank you for making my wedding so incredibly special and helping to create memories we will never forget

  • We were beyond happy with our choice of venue. The woman we worked with was incredible. When there were things I was forgetting she was right there to keep me on track. The venue was BEAUTIFUL, the food was incredible and the service was far beyond what we expected.

  • We're already fans of Kimpton boutique hotels for their location, unique style, and extra amenities...but this venue was perfect for our small wedding of 60. We were really happy with the location and ballroom decor: the chandeliers and color scheme set a lovely scene. We were very happy to find a venue for everything, so that our out-of-town guests wouldn't have to worry about driving in the city or parking. Our guests were thrilled by the location and the FOOD! We also had a small morning-after brunch, at which the staff conveniently set up our leftover flowers and decor. The front desk reception was very kind and helpful to our family staying in the hotel, and the serving staff took great care of us during the entire wedding. My dear cousin specifically complimented the older bartender for knowing and preparing her drink order as she came up to the bar. Finally, Amanda was wonderful to work with throughout the planning process! My husband and I met with Amanda several tim... Read more

  • The Palomar Hotel has the best catering staff and chef personnel I have come across in a long time. I planned 2 parties a formal Rehearsal Dinner and a Brunch long distance. Amy Binder was the contact person for all the initial planning and she was fantastic. We made menu changes, and service changes and through it all she handled everything beautifully. Jenna Wirth the Banquet Manager and her staff were fantastic at both events. We received compliments from all the guests on how wonderful everything was. Chef Caitlin and her staff really really shined for those events. The food was excellent. We made menu changes, and had people with special food requests which were taken care of smoothly and professionally. We had both parties in the Burnham Ballroom, which is beautiful. I would highly recommend this location. If I could plan an event this spectacular long distance that's saying something.

  • A superb location! The Hotel Palomar is well located for central Philadelphia. The hotel has a unique atmosphere and the design is super cool and hip. All these aspects played a part in why we selected the hotel, but ALSO working with a fantastic Director of Catering was important. Erin looked after us so well. She was professional, caring, understanding and accommodating. She offered great advice and referred vendors. Overall, the hotel executed the Wedding to our heats content. I work in hotels, so know the background and behind the scenes activity - all perfect. The food was excellent, the space beautiful and service was good. A number of our guests also stayed at the hotel along with us. Everyone commented on how well they were looked after and how engaged the staff were about our event. Very personal service and attention.

  • After visiting several hotels, we knew that Hotel Palomar was the perfect haven for our out of town family, friends, and the bridal party! During the year leading up to my daughters wedding, Hotel Palomar became our home as I frequently traveled across country to be by my daughters side during the planning. We were always welcomed with a smile & contacted to inquire of any needs. The staff was attentive and professional. The rooms were always clean & inviting. Our wedding guests were able to gather in the lounge area during the cocktail hour each evening....and get a restful sleep after the weekend celebrations! The presidential suite was spacious, had amazing city views, and became a perfect space for my daughter and her attendants to prepare for her wedding. My daughter and her husband enjoyed their wedding night in the beautiful presidential suite. Before departing for home, a delicious post wedding brunch was enjoyed by everyone. Thank You Hotel Palomar!

  • We had our wedding reception in Hotel Palomar's ballroom, and cocktail hour on the 24th floor. The building is simply lovely and really fit into the classy Art Deco vibe we were going for. Erin K. did an amazing job facilitating our vision of the night, and everything seemed to run seamlessly. I was looking for a turn-key venue, and this was it!

  • We had an overall amazing experience having our wedding ceremony and reception at the Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia. My guests did not stop raving about the food! the space! the service! and I am still overjoyed about our experience 2 1/5 months later. The food is delicious, not standard wedding fare, amazing dining experience. They took care of us and our guests. The petite ballroom space was perfect for our 60 guests, comfortable and did not feel too big or too small. Finished with a super brunch the next morning and the whole event became a perfect downtown destination weekend wedding. I can sincerely recommend having an event at the Hotel Palomar.

  • I chose the Hotel Palomar because of their exemplary customer service. I was not disappointed. My wedding was absolutely wonderful and the food was outstanding! As a foodie, I particularly loved that the restaurant chef prepared all the meals and the food was locally sourced. Fabulous! I gave 4 stars for value because there are a few other non-hotel venues that include some of the wedding extras (e.g. lighting, tables, linens etc.) in a comparably priced wedding package. However, I wouldn't have changed a thing. It was perfect :)
