Negative Reviews

Some areas are starting to look tired

A small number of guests have mentioned that some areas of Kimpton Palomar San Diego are starting to show their age and look as though they could do with a refresh to bring them up to scratch.

The shower is irritating

Some frustrated guests found the lack of shower doors irritating. They like how it looks but not that it means water can spray onto the bathroom floor. In addition, further frustration was caused by the rain shower, which some guests say is difficult to shower in effectively.

Bathroom doors don't provide much privacy

Unfortunately, some guests have mentioned that the sliding bathroom doors fail to provide much in the way of privacy as they don't seem to close fully.
