Hotel Palomar Philadelphia teams up with local style expert to launch its first 'Shop Like a Local' guide

For style-savvy travellers looking to experience Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square retail scene, Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar Philadelphia now offers the inside scoop on shopping, with the launch of its ‘Shop Like a Local’ Guide, available on the hotel’s website.

To provide the insider’s perspective on the best hyper-local shopping, Hotel Palomar tapped local lifestyle expert Ian Michael Crumm. Crumm is a successful blogger deemed “Philly’s sweetest fashionista” by Philadelphia magazine and a contributing columnist to Racked Philly, EDGE, Philly.com and the Details network. The looks featured in the Guide were styled by Crumm and shot on-site at the Palomar, utilising the hotel’s sophisticated lines and chic interior as the perfect style inspiration and fashionable setting.

“Travellers choose Kimpton hotels across the country for our local know-how and our emphasis on giving top-notch recommendations for experiencing true local flavour. The first edition of our ‘Shop Like A Local’ Guide takes that concept and puts a fashion-forward spin on it. We take it one step further than simply recommending where to go; we’ve identified the must-have items at each of these retailers.  And, the best part, all of these shops and storefronts are within a ten mile radius of the hotel, making each retail destination an easy go-to for leisure shopping or stocking up on necessities.” said James Adamson, General Manager of Hotel Palomar Philadelphia.

Hotel Palomar’s ‘Shop Like a Local’ Guide features 12 categories that recommend hyper-local independent boutiques and retailers for guests to shop men’s and women’s accessories and beauty services and products. For guests looking for high-fashion designs right off the runway, Crumm suggests Joan Shepp as the ‘Most Coveted Designer Attire for Guys and Gals’  for a number of labels such as Vivian Westwood and 3.1 Phillip Lim. For those looking for ‘Premiere Jewels’, LAGOS’s flagship store, located at the corner of 18th and Walnut Streets, sparkles with diamonds and jewels of all shapes and sizes. Finally for the ‘Sexiest Spot for Something More Comfortable,’ Hope Chest, is a romantic’s best friend offering sexy styles in silk and lace.
