We could not get a room at our normal Hotel in DC snce they were sold-out for a Convention. American Express suggested the Palomar to us as a back-up location and we gave it a try. It is awesome! We were fortunate to get upgraded (due to AMEX Platinum) into a small Suite. The place is impeccably clean, has hip,... More

I found the hotel to have a great location,within walking distance of the White House and museums as well as a short walk from Georgetown. Like all Kimpton hotels, the lounge with the fireplace going was very inviting even prior to the evenings wine tasting. On the day I arrived, I just missed one of the many snowstorms this season,...

We enjoyed every minute of our DC weekend. The hotel was well situated to Georgetown and Dupont circle. Our room was spacious and well appointed. Bath was very adequate. I'd stay there again in a minute.

Besides being an elegant and wonderfully run hotel on the quiet side of Dupont Circle, the staff are genuinely kind and compassionate. I'd enjoyed my stays there before, but they dazzled me this last visit. My Mom was in hospice and this was her last trip to the city. I did not expect them to upgraded us to the presidential...

We drove down from northern Maryland for a last minute weekend getaway and couldn't have been happier with this hotel. From helping us check in early to ensuring we had an upgraded room, the customer service was outstanding. Everyone we encountered on the property was extremely kind and helpful. Furthermore, the room was perfect for us. We will definitely be... More

For staying in the DuPont Circle area, the Palomar is a good bet. It is 2 blocks from the circle, with a dozen or more restaurants in its immediate area. Highlights to us in addition to the location were the stylish lobby, the spacious room (including a modernist chaise lounge), a DVD player in the room (we always travel with... More

The negative points are that,the hotel needs to renew and decorate, and get rid of dust but for classic style lovers they will enjoy. Location is good, staff are helpful and friendly, they serve hot chocolate, coffe, tea and flavored water for free.

This was really a perfect choice for a mother/daughter college tour trip. We booked a reduced rate upgrade to a suite, which was ideal -- plenty of room and thoughtful touches (who doesn't love hot chocolate with peppermint stick in the lobby each day, and the towels were thick and plentiful). The AAA rate was very fair, the location is... More

The main sites in Washington are the White House area And Georgetown. This hotel is neither in one of them, You are in the middle, só You have to take a taxi or subway if you want to go downtown or to Georgetown. But the hotel is new, big rooms, friendly staff.

We spent a single night in mid-February in an executive King room - very large room with work desk, enormous window overlooking P street, lovely space. Everyone we met was extremely helpful, from valet parking staff to check-in clerk to room service breakfast delivery. We love the welcoming, service-oriented atmosphere. The location is excellent just off Dupont Circle - we... More
