SAN DIEGO—Feb. 19, 2015—Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar San Diego announced today it initiated construction on floors 16 through 20 to create a new 50-room collection of Skyline Guestrooms, Suites and Penthouses. Designed to offer the quintessential San Diego experience and elevate the guest journey, the Southern California-inspired rooms will be complemented by enriched new programming and adventure packages, all set to launch in April 2015.
The two-month re-design project kicked off in February 2015, under the direction of Hotel Palomar San Diego’s new general manager, Jim Hollister. Hollister joined the team in early February from Hotel Palomar Phoenix as hotel general manager and director of operations for Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants’ Southern California and Arizona markets.
With surf-inspired modern design and stunning city views, the new Skyline Collection will include 30 guestrooms 12 junior suites, six suites and two penthouses, and is available for booking, with stay dates starting April, 13 2015. The room interiors will blend city life aesthetic with global and grounded elements, combining a palette of edgy city black and metallic metals with seaside blues, greens, sand and grey. Rooms will include contemporary high-end furnishings, reminiscent of Southern California—from the surfboard-inspired headboard and wing back chairs, to modern decorative light fixtures and a bar cart bedside table, for an upscale and unexpected twist.
“As one of the top U.S. travel destinations, San Diego is known for its spectacular beaches, year-long sunshine and a vibrant outdoor lifestyle,” said Jim Hollister, general manager of Hotel Palomar San Diego. “Our goal is to create that quintessential blend of urban sophistication and outdoor living and offer guests a truly authentic local experience, from top to bottom. Not only will the new collection capture the Southern California spirit through its design and fantastic views, but we plan to infuse San Diego into all of our programming and packages to ensure every guest has a memorable journey.”
