Treat Yourself To Cozy in Dallas
by Carl Burnham
As part of the Kimpton line of unique boutique hotels and restaurants, the Hotel Palomar is located on Mockingbird Lane in the Park Cities neighborhood just southeast of Southern Methodist University and includes a total of 198 smoke-free guest rooms and suites ranging in size from 325 sq. ft. all the way to a 1,500 sq. ft. Presidential Suite. My favorite place to be was the outdoor pool area with cabanas, hot tub and refreshing infinity pool with disappearing edge.
Swimming Pool Area
The guest rooms are designed with warm soothing natural colors and appointed for relaxation with modern amenities including 32" flat screen plasma TVs with cable and Nintendo, DVD/CD players, radio/alarm clocks with iHome Docking stations. Other standard items included are a stocked mini fridge, in-room safe (large enough for notebook), padded headboards, iron and ironing board and hairdryer. Relax in a unique designer bathrobe with Zebra stripes and enjoy the hotel's L'Occitane bath amenities. Known as "women's gold," the Shea Butter Collection by L'Occitane ingredients are derived from the Shea trees of West Africa. Great for pampering your hair and skin.
Our King Deluxe Room
Like to stay up on the latest news? Just request your preferred newspaper and it will be waiting at your door in the morning. Forget your toothbrush? No problem. Room Service is readily available 24 hours a day, with menu selections also available from the restaurant downstairs.
Zebra Bathrobes and L'Occitane Bath Amenities
Our King Deluxe room on the 9th floor included a comfy bed with ample pillows, and a relaxing decor with window views of the Dallas skyline.

Through the Kimpton InTouch program you can build up points towards free stays and other perks. With the new "Raid the mini-bar" program you can select up to $10 free from your in-room mini-bar.

"A hotel should relieve travelers of their insecurity and loneliness. It should make them feel warm and cozy."
- Bill Kimpton, Founder
The Hotel Palomar far surpasses this goal. While lounging by the pool, try the signature drink "Dallas Margartita" made with Jose Cuervo platino tequila, cointreau, and fresh lime juice.
Based in San Francisco, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants also operates many distinctive luxury hotels and restaurants throughout the world. Look for more Kimpton features in the future.
