Hotel Palomar San Francisco  
Hotel Palomar San Francisco 3.5 -Star Hotel
Kids Welcome
15 miles from San Francisco airport

An artful urban retreat in the heart of downtown San Francisco is Hotel Palomar. Hidden five floors above the city hustle and bustle and just steps away from ever-busy San Francisco Union Square, the hotel, a 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.
