"Housed in a beautiful Art Deco building that once served as the headquarters of the Philadelphia branch of the American Institute of ArchitectsÂ….The bedrooms have a distinctly sleek design-chic look with OK!'s room decorated in soothing greys and mauves with funky chrome lights, a grey velour sofa and huge TV. We loved the bathroom, with its huge wet-room shower and Jacuzzi bath, leopard-print bathrobes and the most amazing views of the city."

"Over the last 5 years I've been traveling to Philly quite often for business and this year I found a new "home" base. The Palomar is really cool, contemporary style, great service, unique room layouts, nice fitness center, and a great location. I highly recommend the experience." -, Philadelphia Phillies (1972-1989) Hall of Famer

"The Palomar in Philadelphia exists in the former (circa 1929) headquarters for the American Institute of Architects. To capture a sense of the Art Deco building's history, designers moved the original library to a nook in the 25th floor ballroom; a spot that sees traffic during every major event."
