Hotel Palomar San Diego near the Gaslamp and the Horton Plaza Shopping Center
Hotel Palomar San Diego: A Boutique Gaslamp Quarter Hotel in Downtown
Your stay at Hotel Palomar San Diego puts you steps from the famous Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego's liveliest and most popular neighborhood. Chockfull of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues, the Gaslamp Quarter also offers a timeless charm, courtesy of its high concentration of historic, Victorian-era buildings and absence of high-rises.
But it's the nightlife more than anything that has long distinguished the Gaslamp Quarter. Once a red-light district - the legendary Wyatt Earp ran four saloons and gambling halls here - the Gaslamp is San Diego's most colorful district to this day. Indulgence is readily at hand, and at Hotel Palomar, it's indulgence in high style.
At the edge of the Gaslamp Quarter, Hotel Palomar San Diego anchors some of the best dining and nightlife in the city. Start with a well-crafted cocktail at our rooftop or lobby bar and venture forth. There are over 200 different restaurants to choose from within eight blocks of our luxury hotel, and our own Saltbox Dining & Drinking is among the most highly regarded. There are also countless bars, clubs, lounges and music venues. We recommend:
- Croce's - 3 blocks from Hotel Palomar
- Hard Rock Café - 4 blocks from the hotel
- Stage - 4 blocks from our boutique hotel
If shopping is your guilty pleasure, you're in the right place. There are many unique, independent shops and boutiques to peruse within eight blocks of our downtown hotel. Just two blocks from Hotel Palomar San Diego, you'll also find the Westfield Horton Plaza, an open-air, five-level retail destination that encompasses 6.5 city blocks.
San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is also home to some of the city's favorite festivals, including:
Whatever the time of year, there's always something to do and see just outside our lobby doors.
