...the location of this hotel was just off Dupont Circle and a great base if you want to explore all of Washington attractions. I have stayed in a Kimpton hotel before in New York, so knew what to expect and I wasn't disappointed. Check-in was smooth and easy, our room was clean, comfortable and full of all the necessities you... More

We stayed here for four nights in August this year. As a family we found it a great hotel to use for exploring the sights DC has to offer. The hotel itself was being renovated when we went but it was still nice, with comfy rooms. Any issue we had was dealt with swiftly and the staff were both very... More

This hotel simply doesn't get it. We have really tried to make it work here. 3rd visit. Freaking mess. Bugs in food last time. This time stuck on an elevator for 30 minutes while these people took 10 minutes to realize we were stuck. Pressing the phone button in the elevator was a waste of time. It just rang and... More

I had booked this hotel for 6 days. This is our first visit to Washington D.C. We have stayed at the Palomar Chicago and Miami. I had specifically picked this hotel for the pool. I had been told it gets pretty hot and sticky in DC in the summer and wanted the kids to have an opportunity to cool down... More

We arrived for our semi-annual visit to Washington, DC to leave our daughter at school. As soon as we drove up, the doormen greeted us with "Welcome Back!". We love coming here. Besides the lovely location, and its proximity to many restaurants and sights, the hotel just seems like home. I love to borrow their bikes -- this time I... More

I am a huge fan of Kimpton Hotels chain. They add a great value for customers: from the moment you check in until the day of your check out. We took this huge room, staff extremely polite and professional. One of them helped us giving good tips of directions. It's not close to the Washington attractions, but if you have... More

We stayed for four nights with our infant son and had a great time -- every single member of the staff, from the desk clerk to the doormen to the housekeeper who set up a baby crib in our room, was extremely helpful and friendly. Anything we needed was attended to right away. There is a happy hour in the... More

If you are like me traveling and staying in hotels can be a stressful experience. There is nothing like the comfort of home. I have to say hotel palomar was a wonderful stay. Everything was super clean and spotless! Great location near DuPont circle, a short cab ride to all other locations. We used Uber while we were there and... More
