The Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia unveiled an extensive refresh of its meeting and event spaces.

The building itself served as the 1929 original Architect’s Building in Philadelphia and was brought back to life through an adaptive reuse and renovation in 2009.

Today, the 230-room hotel features historic Art Deco details such as original crown molding and paneling, tile mosaic and etched elevator doors as well as original artwork from Philadelphia artists. 

The hotel’s meeting spaces are named after famous architects including Julian Abele, Paul Philippe Cret and Frank Lloyd Wright.

There is 6,000 square feet of event space, located on the property’s 24th and 25th floors, with views of the city.

The new look includes neutral earth tones accented by bright pops color. Brass light fixtures and modern accents are juxtaposed by velvet and tufted furniture to create a comfortable, yet sleek feel.

A highlight of the renovation is in the AIA library on the 25th floor. This space is home to various pieces of local art and carefully curated objects. French doors lead to a herb garden tended by the hotel’s restaurant, Square 1682.

In addition to the refreshed space, the hotel is also offering new programming for groups. One offering is a sound bath meditation seminars with sound healer Luna Maye.
