This hotel did a fantastic job at making us feel welcomed and at meeting our needs. Gordon and Kelly at the front desk were wonderful! The extra touches for the kids made this stay so memorable. The "pet fish" , milk and cookies every night really was special to them. When we did have a small concern the front desk... More

Bikes available for free, nice area , easy access to the mall. Stayed with 3 teenagers who loved hotel and the area. Free wine hour each evening - enjoyable way to share Washington experiences, if you wish. Small swimming pool which is fine for a swim - quiet mid afternoon and mid morning and gym.

We stayed at the Palomar for 3 nights as a getaway weekend. We found it to be a well run, well located property staffed by pleasant helpful people! The room was large, spotless and extremely comfortable. The location was a short walk to the DuPont Circle Metro and was surrounded by restaurants, and lively bars on every side in a... More

Just had my second stay at Hotel Palomar with a group of friends (our first was in 2008). We went back because of the location on DuPont Circle, the daily wine reception hour (5-6), and the pool area (which -- however -- is smaller than it looks in the pictures) On both stays we've found everyone working at the hotel...

Staying at another Kimpton in town we were out roaming in when the rain came. Ran in to this hotel to avoid the monsoon and the front desk staff was so helpful. We explained why we ran in and they were more than understanding. They even asked if we had seen our complimentary umbrellas in our room. We had left... More

I was in DC last week for some business meetings and this hotel was close to my client's office. I loved the room and the hotel. The room was large with a king bed and plenty of plug points to charge electronics. The bathroom had a shower and a soaking tub. It was all very clean and functional. The location... More

D.C was one of our many stops during our east coast trip. We always stay at a Kimpton hotel because of our 2 furbabies. The Palomar was great. Close to many restaurants and DuPont fountain park. Our room was clean and service was very friendly. This would be out 3rd Kimpton hotel we've stayed in and as always, we are... More

I was recently in DC and booked into this hotel by the organizer of a conference I was attended. I was expecting a great hotel based on the hotel's website and some reviews I read. I was very disappointed! First, the room I was given had a musty smell but since it was for just one night I said OK... More

We stayed here for sight seeing in DC. It was an Awesome hotel. Loved the large queen room. Nice to have extra space. The only complaint is I wish it was closer to sights. It is about a 3 mile walk to sights. It is a doable walk which we did many times and cabs and metra are close by... More

Great location and a great pool area for our two kids . We enjoyed our stay a lot and it is close to metro and a lot of great restaurants. So can fully recommend this hotel. A lot of sightseeing and then relax at pool in the afternoon. Perfect:-)
