There's quite a bit happening at Hotel Palomar San Diego lately. The chic boutique hotel in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter just announced construction of a 50-room Skyline Collection project to include guest rooms, suites and penthouses on floors 16 through 20.
The rooms are designed with the quintessential San Diego experience in mind, and they're complemented by enriched new programming and adventure packages, all set to launch in April 2015.

These new rooms will boast surf-inspired modern design and stunning city views, with palettes of edgy city black and metals, along with seaside blues, greens, sand and grey.
Rooms will include contemporary high-end furnishings reminiscent of Southern California – from the surfboard-inspired headboard and wingback 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,” says Hotel Palomar San Diego’s new General Manager Jim Hollister, who is directing the renovation.
Hollister joined the team in early February 2015 from Hotel Palomar Phoenix as hotel general manager and director of operations for Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants’ Southern California and Arizona markets.
“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," adds Hollister. "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.”
Guests booking the Elevate Your Journey promo up until June 30, 2015, will receive 20% off the new Skyline Collection and 20% off any spa services at Nature’s Spa by Jurlique. The offer is valid for travel starting April 27, 2015, through June 30, 2015. Promotion can be booked online with rate code SP2.
To coincide with the news, the hotel launched an Instagram contest to encourage participants to showcase how they "elevate their journey" – from their sense of adventure, well-being, taste buds, etc. – for a chance to win a prize, valued at $5,000.
The winner will receive a two-night stay in the Skyline Penthouse, $200 credit at Nature’s Spa by Jurlique, dinner for two at Saltbox and two passes for skydiving with Skydive San Diego or stand-up paddle boarding on Mission Bay.
