  • Erin Schwamb and the Hotel Palomar staff were a delight to work with. Erin helped my fiancé and I curate a beautiful day for our wedding on May 22, 2021. The hotel is stunning with its decadent decor and we especially loved that the Palomar offers wedding packages. The wedding package included everything we needed. I personally loved that I did not have to seek out additional vendors. I would absolutely recommend having your wedding at the Hotel Palomar, you will not be disappointed!

  • There is only one word to describe our experience at the Palomar…perfect. I have not one single complaint regarding our wedding. Erin was amazing she listened to our needs and came up with ideas and solutions to meet them. She emailed and communicated the whole time advising us on every step of the process. We decided we were going to get married in 62 days and Erin got right to work. The menu was amazing and the food was delicious! The package was amazing and every professional was just as amazing the florist, the DJ, the officiant, the cake was just amazing. Our guess loved the food, which for a wedding is hard but the food was amazing, the bartender made our entire night from creating custom drinks to keeping the alcohol flowing, the cake was so good, the DJ was spot on mixing just the right music and keeping the vibe going the whole night. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this place. I wish I could get married every year. Erin and her team at the Palomar took all t... Read more

  • We just had our 55 person wedding here this past weekend. We already knew the food was amazing, but our guests raved about its quality and also the level of service experienced while celebrating with us. Erin (catering manager) and her team went above and beyond to make our event memorable and as stress-free as possible. 100% would book here again!

  • If you want to have an intimate wedding, this is the place. My experience from beginning to end was absolutely amazing. Erin, the coordinator made sure everything came together for our special day. The hotel staff was extremely professional and made sure our stay was comfortable. My husband & I had such an inviting experience.

  • I absolutely loved having my wedding reception at the Palomar. I was a Covid bride with a small group, and Erin did an incredible job making me feel like my event was as big and important as any other bride. The way she displayed my decor was so beautiful, and the food and service was amazing. I also loved having our first look photos on the library! ThNk you so so much to Erin and team for making our day so special!

  • 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.

  • 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
