My first stay here will not be my last. The location is perfect right in the midst of Dupont Circle. You are two blocks from Metro. The neighborhood is vibrant with shops, restaurants and a local appeal that was not present in my other stays in Downtown DC. The lobby is a bit noisy for my taste, but the rooms... More

We stayed for a week, the family room was huge with a large bathroom too. Buffet breakfast was a good way to start the day and there was enough choice for us. The subway was not far but we tended to walk to most places which is fine if you like a lot of walking. I would definitely stay here... More

This hotel is on P Street, convenient for the Metro, plenty of local restaurants (which are 'Washington over-priced') and the Phillips Collection Art Gallery. We had a quiet room on the top floor (10) which was pleasantly large. Between 5 and 6 each evening there is Wine, Pizza, olives and crackers in an entrance lounge area around the fireplace. It...

Good - This hotel is located near a lot of restaurants, at (medium) walking distance from Georgetown M street's restaurants and shops. Also (long) walking distance to Lincoln Memorial, and (not so long) walk to George Washington U Foggy Bottom campus. It's also close to jogging paths, even lets you have bicycles for free. It has free wine (red and... More

You are greeted by a bowl of biscuits and water (for your pet) at the door, but the hotel is still a great place for human beings too. Friendly reception and morning coffee and tea (complimentary) in the lobby - also daily newspapers and water. Rooms are well-equipped with umbrellas and yoga mats. Well-equipped gym with functioning equipment, but pool... More

The hotel has a great vibe. The desk persons are helpful and friendly. I appreciated the night manager, Juleen, especially for being serious and sincere with me - obviously balances the needs of her business with giving great customer service to also grow her business. Doormen are prompt and friendly too. The clientele seems pretty upscale with a great mix... More

This was our first time staying at Palomar. We stayed as a family and we all thought it was one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at. Who can beat complimentary milk and cookies daily for the kids?! We never made it to the happy hour, as we were in museums, but hopefully will next time. The rooms are... More

We have stayed here often and it never disappoints. The service is excellent and the rooms are beautiful...great for a weekend getaway even if you live in the MD/DC area. Cocktail hour is fabulous and such a nice perk. Excellent location for going out or having a nice meal, the conceirge will always help you in getting a reservation. Dog... More

Loved the hotel. A weekend getaway for my wife and me and what better place to stay than at the Palomar. The checkin was fast and efficient. We arrived after the cocktail hour and the clerk on duty gave us 2 vouchers for the bar. We nibbled on some finger food and enjoyed our glass of wine. The room was... More

Stayed here for one night for business. Great location (20 minute cab from Union Station) and really nice property overall. Easy check-in experience, clean spacious room with a table big enough to work at and plenty of power cords. They offer a free wine hour (5-6pm) in the lobby which was a nice touch- lots of people took advantage. I... More
