    The Palomar is definitely the rebirth of cool. What was once a lackluster 3-star property is now a chic experience in hospitality. Kimpton breathed new life into this prime location with a total renovation, awesome amenities and the Central 214 restaurant and bar that is good enough to stand on its own.

    With its modern, sophisticated décor, pet pampering services, luxurious spa that uses my favorite products and a much talked about farm to table restaurant, I fully expected to fall in love with the Hotel Palomar from the moment I walked in the door. Most hotels that I’ve been in have a lot of plants and trees and fresh flowers and so did the Hotel Palomar, but, this is the first hotel I’ve walked into that has a live fish bowl on the front desk to remind you that not only do they offer dog beds, dishes and treats, they will also put a fish in your room so you won’t be lonely if you’ve left pets and loved ones at home. The location is in a great place, there’s Mockingbird Station with lots of shopping and restaurants across the street and SMU, Northpark Mall and a lot of businesses nearby, but, if you don’t plan on venturing out, there are some great amenities offered at the Palomar including a well-stocked fitness center, gorgeous pool to work by or play in, organic coffees and teas in the morning, a complimentary wine hour with hors d’ oeuvres from Central 214 which also does 24 hour room service and even complimentary overnight shoe shining. I was a little disappointed with the staff, they weren’t helpful and sometimes were rude which is fine, this hotel is known for its amenities and décor, not attentive employees, but, I feel like my time there would have been far more enjoyable if I had seen more (or any) smiling faces.

    This hotel has all of the bells and whistles. Lovely rooms and a great location. It is right across the street from Mockingbird Station and close to SMU, Katy Trail etc... They offer wine tasting nights and organic tea & coffee is available every morning.

    I was a little disappointed that WiFi was an additional fee per day. With the amount of $ you spend to stay there... WiFi should be an amenity, not an extra.
