One of the Kimpton brand of boutique hotels, the Palomar is ideally located for those doing business in downtown Phoenix or catching a game or concert at the nearby US Airways Center or Chase Field, both within walking distance. The property is also convenient to the convention center and light rail. Modern décor and amenities include doorless showers and contemporary furnishings, and the warm and welcoming staff is a bonus. The on-site bar and restaurant serve solid fare, and as typical of Kimpton properties, there is a hosted evening wine hour from 5–6pm each evening. If you're renting a car, take note: Due to its downtown location, parking is a bit on the steep side.
