Hotel Palomar Dallas - A Kimpton Hotel

... tonight. REALLY? ??? That's what's most important to society now? I can't say I blame my generation for the way we have turned out. I can say that it's not too late to change. When being chemically gassed to death is a legitimate fear and viable possibility, I think it's time to look at what we as a future of leaders can do to change the way our future looks. Instead of gossiping and spreading lies over the success of your neighbor, or criticizing a stranger over their ...
... corner of the world, mindlessly watching hours of inflight movies and landing thousands of miles away from where we took off. I'm enjoying the sweet tannins of my California blend, and I can't help but question whether I've earned this, or if it is just my fate, my destiny. This is nostalgia. I'm smiling, starring at my favorite colors in the sky just melting together telling me that this was no mistake. I belong ...
So we headed to Cedar Hill, Tx. to the Pep Wear office and dropped the camper off, so that is were it will set for the next 3 months. So here we are at our 1st hotel stay....so far everything is going good, we start training tomorrow and tues......maybe head out to monroeville, Pa. ...
... whole scenario. The afternoon was spent at the Dallas Museum of Art.
We then drove out of town a wee bit to our first ever drive-in movie experience. We chatted to our car neighbours who were surprised we never had been to a drive in movie before as they were regular goers. The first movie we sat on our camping chairs listening thru the very old speakers (1960), the second movie we watched in Lola listening thru the radio. It was a very american experience and thoroughly ...
Well, this is it until Nov. (last night in the camper).......it's nothing but hotel room living starting tomorrow night, living out of a suitcase and on the road traveling.....so far the best thing about all that is that we are getting paid for everything.....we shall see, I can tell you the further we got back to the east coast the harder it is going back to the west (time will tell). Training starts ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Palomar Dallas - A Kimpton Hotel
Another fantastic Kimpton experience
I'm a member of their InTouch guest program and was greeted with a fruit plate and complimentary bottle of water upon entering my room. The Hotel Palomar is what you would expect from Kimpton--upscale, high-quality, excellent service, and they don't nickle-and-dime guests by charging for high-speed Internet access like most other high-end hotels do.
Loved the Palomar
Stayed in a beautiful 750 sq foot suite with a huge bathroom. Very comfortable. We also had another King room for our daughter. It was on the small side also quite beautiful.
Service at breakfast was not great one day.
The bar is a hopping place.
Got a reat deal through travelzoo.
I can't tell you how delighted I was with our recent stay at Hotel Palomar. This was our first visit to a Kimpton property and I must say...we were very pleased!
Finally a first-class hotel very close to SMU. It took them a long time, but the property, formerly a rundown mess, has been transformed to a very elegant, Zen-like oasis. We enjoyed the atmosphere from the moment we entered: wood floors, fireplace, chic decor. Our king room was very well appointed, especially with great lighting. Marble entry way and bath, comfortable bed with lots of pillows; big, nice towels. However, we thought the room was a bit small. Ate at the restaurant for dinner. It was filled with trendy-looking locals in the bar. Food and atmosphere were just as elegant and good as the rest of the hotel. Texas Monthly gave the restaurant a good review in the Jan '07 issue. Also enjoyed the nightly wine reception in the lobby. Our only problem was that our room was very warm. We had to run the A/C for the two days we were there, while the outside temperature was in the 30's. We will stay there again, because of the location and we considered it a good value.
I found a special on Travelzoo and booked this place for New Year's Eve. Very nice hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful but not overbearing. The design is great. We went to the hotel's wine reception and enjoyed the champagne. The lobby was modern in design but still very warm and cozy with low lighting and a lit fireplace. The soft music added a nice touch.
I was in Dallas for a wedding and stayed at the Hotel Palomar as it was close to the Doubletree (the wedding party's preferred hotel) and I got a better deal on the Palomar. Let me just say the rest of the wedding party was so jealous!!! Like one of the above posters said, you just feel better walking through the doors. The staff, from the valet/bell guys, to the front desk was superb! They even remembered us (which may not have been a great thing!:) daily. There is a free wine reception at 5pm daily that we were only able to attend twice, but it was great. It was pretty cold in Dallas when we were there, but we still went out by the pool and hung out in the cabanas. The pool was heated, but not hot enough to go into it. We didn't use the restaurant, but we did visit the bar, and it was an older trendy crowd. Mockingbird station with shops is across the street and late night, not much is open for food/drinks. The only bad thing that happened was upon check out, they charged us for 3 days of valet parking at $18 per day, when we had self parked the whole time. They didn't blink and took it off of our bill. Bottom line: I will be going back to Dallas JUST to stay at the Hotel Palomar and shop at nearby Knox road. It was amazing....
I stayed at the Hotel Palomar from Nov. 7 - 9, 2006. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and has wonderful toiletries - L'Occitane.
I found this hotel as a special deal when combining with flights on Expedia. Boy, am I glad I did. I was in Dallas for a 2 day convention at the Adam's Mark, which was full, as were all the surrounding hotels. What a stroke of luck.
What stood out was the way the entire staff made you feel right at home...I couldn't believe it when I found out the hotel had just recently opened with that level of service. Now I'm looking forward to my next trip to Dallas.
I just returned from a wonderful stay at Hotel Palomar. I took my husband there to celebrate his birthday. We arrived and the staff rolled out the red carpet. Check-in was quick and we were given a room upgrade, as well as free drinks and appetizers to enjoy at the hotels restaurant. We were only there for one night to enjoy dinner with friends. When we left for dinner at about 7:30 p.m., we returned to a turned down bed, fresh towels, a chilled bottle of wine and a birthday card for my husband. What a nice surprise! We didn't get to experience the restaurant because we already had reservations somewhere else, but when we returned from dinner we enjoyed drinks, from the hotel restaurant, by the fire place in the well decorated lobby. I will visit Hotel Palomar again very soon.
