location location location - yes I know I'm repeating myself, but 17th St between Chestnut and Sansom is awesome. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful - and being allowed to check-in mid-morning was a huge plus.

No - everything about the hotel was fine. I didn't have an opportunity to eat or drink there but the bar looked very inviting.

A friend told me the Palomar was chic and trendy. I'm neither, so I was a bit concerned I might not fit in. But old fuddy duddy here felt just fine - and again, huzzahs to the staff!

The staff was very friendly! I am not familiar with the area so they were very helpful with directions & suggestions. 1 even flagges down a cab for me since im from a suburban area & not used to the whole public transit thing. The hotel is also directly across from the parking garage which was convenient & the hotel is surrounded by many shops, bars, restaurants, etc. Also not to many blocks from maim attractions like liberty bell & love park.

Our room was absolutely freezing & there is no way to control the temperature. The 2nd night we told the front desk who said they can control it from outside the rooms & she would take care of it but our room was still freezing so since it was summer we kept the windows up while we were there in hopes of letting the cool air out & some warm air in. Also when we booked the room it was cheaper then others cuz it said exterior bathroom. We didnt know exactly what it meant so went ahead. Turns out it literally means our hotel room had no bathroom & we had to exit our room & walk a few steps then round a corner to get to a bathroom in view of the whole hallway with other rooms which only our room key opens. It wasnt to bad expect the bathroom is tiny, really only room inside to take 1 step & u have to make sure no1s in the hall & dash back to your room if your in a towel or dont want to be seen for any reaaon. So I do not recommend for the ellderly or children but since my friend & I were not planning to be in the hotel much during our stay it was fine for the price

The $17.00 Pancake breakfast seems a bit absurd so we opted for IHOP down the street.

The room.

One elevator not finished, and no sign in it to tell you to use your room card to have the elevator stop on your floor. Caused me to go up and down until another person showed me what to do.

Overall, satisfying, good location, nice lobby, nice room, nice bathroom, good plumbing, quiet.

convenient location to restaurants and shops, rooftop pool

pool was not heated as the staff told us on the phone. staff seemed confused and uninformed about room service and drinks at the pool. ordered a bottle of wine for the pool from room service and never got it.

would have like to have the roof top pool more decorated with plants, etc to make it seem nicer. too expensive of a hotel for the service we received no on-site restaurant bar tender did not know how to make some drinks

Full breakfast was pretty good and included in the price of the room. Good price for close to Center City, Chinatown, Market East.

I booked the room through Kayak.com and paid for it through them. Hampton Inn put an extra $50 on my credit card without telling me as a hold against additional charges. That's fair, but I should have been informed of this. Bathroom fan was noisy, bathroom sink was slow draining, pillows are too soft for our taste.

The front desk was very friendly. The rooms were large and in a great part of the city - close to many restaurants and bars. The keurig was a great bonus to the room as well as having coffee and tea available in the lobby 24 hours a day.

The toilet broke two times we were there - it just wouldn't flush. The front desk was able to fix it in a few seconds so it was no big deal.

It was a great place to stay - we'd definitely consider staying here again!

A light sleeper might complain about noise, luckily, I'm not a light sleeper and this didn't bother me at all.

Terrible showers no water pressure paint peeling in bathroom holes in towels and they were very rough no chairs in room AC hardly worked overall Bldg was dirty and soiled front entrance not handicap friendly.

To anyone reading this do not stay in this hotel it is some place to send a EX wife or mother in law that you want to get very mad at you.

Cost effectiveness, compared to higher-quality hotels in the center city.

Sometimes the staff did not clean my room thoroughly, i.e. they cleaned the bed, but forgot other thingd such as emptying the dustbin. It would be great to have more vegetable or fruits for breakfast.

A good location in the downtown, easy to access to tourist or shopping places. Staff are friendly. Many free services are available.

The hotel staff was wonderful.

We had a room with two double beds. Neither mattress was in great shape, but the one I slept on was almost impossible for sleeping as there was a huge hollow in the middle. The hotel staff said the mattress firmness was adjustable and that seemed broken.

No outside areas with seating, at all. Location is pretty bad.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
