Being that I am only 30 minute drive from the Palomar downtown, it’s hard to believe it’s my first time staying here. When I was approached about doing a girls staycation at the Palomar I was instantly all in. And my first thought when arriving… Why did it take me so long?
Here’s something you didn’t know about me. During my college years I worked in the hospitality industry. From catering to front desk to marketing team I learned almost everything there is to making everyone’s stay as accommodating as it can be. So If you’re a hotel connoisseur like me, you know that any Kimpton hotel is going to be an experience all on its own. The Palomar property itself is right in the center of downtown Phoenix, across the Chase field and surrounded by local restaurants, bars, shops and beautiful city skyscrapers.
My favorite part? Hard to decide between the Lustre Rooftop bar and pool over the city view and their succulent food at the Blue Hound kitchen & Bar. Their chopped salad is beyond the roof. It was my fave!! And their shrimp and grits are insane, I’m not even grits fan but they were like whipped cream. Speaking of indulgences, their salted caramel pudding was just heaven. And let’s not even get into their exotic selection of drinks. They’ve got a hell of a Mixologist in addition to their chef.
Fun fact: Did you know you can order from The Breakfast Club and have it delivered to you as room service? Neat service, Palomar. You Go Palomar!
One thing’s for sure, I will definitely be returning. Hopefully sooner than later.

Toward the last part of our stay we got to completely dress up in emerging designer Chrisitne Adar’s beautiful gowns, but I’ll be touching more on that later.
Needless to say, we slept really well that night. If you’re considering traveling to the Southwest, I can’t recommend this hotel enough. Between the incredible customer service, the activities, and the food, there is never a shortage of things to do, places to go, or sights to see!
