Oh sure, I can talk about the 442-gallon salt water aquarium in the lobby or the local artwork on display, both representing the “Art in Motion” theme. I can even tell you about the AltoRex Rooftop Lounge, an intimate open-air gathering space with sweeping views of Atlanta’s skyline.
Even with all of that and more at Hotel Palomar Atlanta Midtown (map), I want to point out the small things; you know, those details that you might forget about or take for granted. It’s those minute details that make this property different. And you’ll soon see that being different is good.
Whether it’s enjoying a organic snack from the honor bar, staying fit with one of the in-room fitness channels or relaxing in one of the animal-print bathrobes, you’ll realize that Hotel Palomar Atlanta Midtown isn’t a cookie-cutter boutique hotel. There’s no attitude or stuffiness here. The property (and Kimpton brand) understands the uniqueness of each travelers and tries to adequately provide for their needs and wants while away from home, including in-room spa services.
And did I mention that the property is pet-friendly? Yes, your furry friend is treated a like a human guest when you stay here.
Hotel Palomar Atlanta Midtown also family-friendly as well. The Kimpton brand welcomes children to their property. Upon arrival, children receive special KimptonKids gift, a child size animal-print bathrobe to use during the stay and other amenities.
When it comes to accommodations, the 304-room property offers everything from a King Deluxe room to a Cityview room to an Executive Double Double room and more. If you have the money, why not indulge in the Presidential Suite, which has three separate rooms.
Dine-in one night (or every night during your stay) at Pacci Ristorante. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch, the offerings are diverse (think Italian with an Atlanta-style kick) and affordable.
Whether you’re coming in for a weekend or enjoying a night on the town, consider staying at Hotel Palomar Atlanta Midtown. Be prepared for a hotel experience like no other, and one that you won’t soon forget.
