I have stayed in this hotel many times on my visits to D.C. I really like the location and the amenities the hotel has to offer - pool, happy hour, ? - are very nice. I had not been to the hotel since summer of 2015 and was just there for a quick night in January. They have done a... More

Recently updated. Hallways and rooms renovated with new fixtures and furniture. hallways brightened with new fixtures and wallpaper.Greta location near lots of restaurants and shopping. Be sure to enroll in karma rewards, even if not staying in Kimptons regularly. You still get $10 free at the hotel bar or from the mini-bar.

We got a great deal for a weekend at the Palomar and were not disappointed. The hotel is in an okay part of Dupont Circle, on your way to Georgetown. Its a bit to get to the heart of current DC nightlife, but that is what a short Uber ride is for. We were wonderfully great, and we noticed on... More

The Palomar provides consistently good accommodations, good service. I couldn't ask for anything more. Convenient access to the Metro makes getting around easy. Bathrooms exceptionally well done. Special thanks to folks who really helped me out, including Darian, Hussein, Rick, and Philip!

Had an overall positive stay at the Palomar Hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Was able to check in fairly quickly upon arriving, however after making my way to the top floor and hauling my luggage to my room- I soon found out my room keys did not work. I had to travel all the way back down... More

Right from the start, we had a warm and friendly welcome. Reception was great with assistance and guidance on how to access Metro. The valet service was a relief considering we arrived on Jan 26 while large mounds of snow still filled most street parking. Our room was large and well furnished. It was a pleasant surprise to find a... More

Stayed here because of a Trade Show we were attending. Not a great location if you are not a tourist and don't have transportation, wish we could have been closer to The Convention Center. There are not a lot of dinning choices within walking distance, a Subway and a couple pizza joints. Tried to eat at a restaurant across the... More

Hotel was outdated and needs refurbished as carpets in rooms and hallways was very worn. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Location was good and many restaurants in the area. They charge a $15.00 plus tax hotel fee which I feel is ridiculous considering there is a charge for using the internet. After checkout a $55.00 charge was applied to... More

Just returned from a one night stay at the Palomar in DC. Very comfortable rooms and ideal for my purposes (free internet and nice workspace as well as comfortable bed). Excellent service from the front desk staff, especially Rick (on-duty manager), courteous and helpful above and beyond any expectations.

Friendly staff and very nice atmosphere. They upgraded me to a luxury suite just to be nice (I didn't have a rewards account or anything). I ordered room service and the gentleman that served me was very friendly and professional. Great experience overall.
