Fall For Our Philadelphia Event Spaces

Get floored by our venue’s spacious layout

You might say we’ve always been a destination for those with a keen eye for design; before we became Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia, 117 S. 17th Street was known as the Architects Building (since 1929, in fact). Following the transformation, we’ve put some of our own floor plan-building magic to work, resulting in handsome-looking conference rooms, ballrooms and boardrooms, named after the many skilled architects who have contributed their talents to this beloved city we call home.
