We returned to the Hotel Palomar last weekend to celebrate our anniversary. It remains a an excellent choice in a chic neighborhood. The staff is truly outstanding. When Mike at the front desk found out we were celebrating our anniversary, he upgraded us to a spa room. He managed to do this when the hotel was very full. We went... More

We traveled here to bring our daughter to DC so she could see all of the monuments discussed in the American History / Civics class she just got of. The Hotel Palomar was centrally located but just far enough away from the bustle of the Mall. The hotel also provided us with a quick access point to Georgetown as well.... More

My husband and I had one room. My daughter, her husband and their 21 month old daughter had the room next door. We were in Washington to take my 18 year old son to college. After driving 4 hours to the university and unpacking the cars and carrying in everything and unpacking again - WE WERE TIRED! We drove the... More

We stayed at the Hotel Palomar for 8 nights and I found it perfect for us. The staff were great and always greeted us no matter when we passed. Free coffee and tea in the lobby started the day off perfect, for exploring a truly amazing city, and free wine between 17.00 and 18.00 although we only done this twice... More

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. It's not the best we've ever stayed at, our room was a great size but starting to show the signs of wear and tear.... But...... The staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough. The hotel give complimentary push bikes to enable you to explore the City which was great. There was wine tasting... More

Great stay- the staff goes above and beyond! This was our 2nd trip here and the reason I came back. This time I brought my parents, kids, and 2 dogs- I was supposed to stay with a school friend who lives nearby but her child was sick so we all shared a room. I had to order a rollaway and... More

This was our final destination of a 2 week tour of the East Coast ( we're from the UK) We had amazing rooms in all of the previous 4 hotels, the Palomar's room was TINY. You literally could not move in there. We went downstairs and asked the lady on reception if we could move, she upgraded us to a... More

It's rare that I am able to travel alone, so when I mentioned to the front desk that I was celebrating a "weekend of freedom", they ran with it. Everyone was so kind and friendly, and exceedingly helpful. Even when I had a bit of a problem with switching rooms, they were gracious and professional. The hotel was busy--with wedding... More

This was my first visit to Wahington, travelling with my family. The location of the Palomar was perfect for sightseeing in the centre of town or Georgetown, at night the area was busy with a great selection of bars and restaurants within walking distance. I liked the complimentary tea and coffee and wine in the early evening. Room was compact... More

The room was simply phenomenal! We had a very large room right above the lobby overlooking the street. While the view was sub-optimal, the size of the room was worth it. Our colleagues told us the rooms on the higher floors were smaller. The bathroom was stocked with excellent products. The only complaint is that there is no vent fan... More
