Property Description

Hotel Palomar - A San Francisco Boutique Hotel that is Art in MotionThe Hotel Palomar is an artful urban retreat in the heart of downtown. Hidden five floors above the city hustle and bustle and just steps away from ever-busy Union Square, this Kimpton hotel is like a great painting waiting to be discovered by the discerning traveler.The style of this San Francisco luxury hotel is contemporary but not trendy, with playful touches throughout. The décor invites closer inspection that reveals artful details, such as the lobby's stunning parquet floors reminiscent of the geometric drawings of M.C. Escher. The atmosphere recalls Paris of the 1930s, where artists and intellectuals chatted at sidewalk cafes in an imaginative city full of creative energy, just like modern day San Francisco.Located at 4th Street and Market, Hotel Palomar is centrally located near three of the city's most dynamic districts: the thriving South of Market (SOMA) district, the Financial District, and San Francisco Union Square, famous for its great shopping (think Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, Barney's and more). This sophisticated boutique hotel is just a short walk from San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center and great art museums, such as SF MOMA, as well as the beautiful Yerba Buena Gardens, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the season.With a reputation for high-touch service and individual attention, Hotel Palomar is a study in the Art of Service and reflects the standards expected from a Kimpton Hotel. Our San Francisco boutique hotel was awarded Conde Naste Traveler's 2006 Gold List of the World's Best Places to Stay, and this dynamic California hotel also received the prestigious AAA Four Diamond hotel award, a trend unbroken since the hotel opened in 1999.
