This review is based off of a one-night stay this past weekend, but the service was so amazing it's a no brainer that we'll book here again. Check-in was a breeze and the staff was very polite, which was definitely welcomed after a 6+ hour drive into town. We stayed in a King Deluxe Room and it seemed larger than... More

I have stayed here many times, and will continue to return. The location is great, the staff are AWESOME (Nabeel, Philip, Rachel, Dave, Ben, Caitlin, Kelly, etc). They are almost finished upgrading the elevators (they were slow before, now more timely), and soon will be remodeling the restaurant, Urbana. I hope they give this hotel the respect it deserves and... More

I visited this hotel last weekend for my bachelorette party. My friends reserved two rooms for Saturday night. We were able to check in early and our rooms were next to each other. The staff was beyond helpful! We even came back to our room in the afternoon to three bottles of wine and a nice note from the concierge!... More

What friendly helpful service! From prompt email responses to a smile & hello from every single employee, the Palomar was outstanding. They helped recommend dog daycare & appropriate day tours, & really know their stuff. Location is great for walking to Starbucks a few doors down & little cafés nearby. They offer complimentary coffee in the morning & wine in... More

I am not paying justice to this hotel as I am writing this review much later after I stayed there (fall 2011) -yet they were so good that they deserve mentioning in trip advisor. I organised a 10-people business meeting at this hotel. Traditionally, we book at 4-star hotels, we try to avoid big and chain hotels. We try to... More

Hello Tuffedpuffin, Thank you for your review. What an excellent experience indeed. I appreciate you sharing the meeting booking experience with the traveling community. We so often receive reviews about leisure experiences, so it's good to see a business perspective. The extra mile, that's a road less traveled for some, not us! Cheers, Abe Liao Hotel Manager More

A short walk to the subway and then a quick ride to all the attractions. We could leave the hotel and be at the Smithsonian in 30 minutes. There are some really great restaurants either in the same street or one street away. We ate Thai, Moroccan and Irish and enjoyed all three. The hotel staff appear to be trying... More

Hi Susan G, Thanks for your review. Sounds like overall an awesome experience. For the complimentary morning coffee service, it does encourage a more social environment. In the future, we can totally accommodate having a coffee maker, delivered in room, prior to arrival. Just need to include it on your reservation requests. Hope to see you soon, Abe Liao Hotel...

Great location! A slow-pacced, 5-minute walk to Dupont Circle. Lobby was not as sleek as pictured. During happy hour each day, it was filled with high-energy, fun-loving guests. With pet water and food bowls at the door, it felt a bit like I was visiting a friend's home. Double room was great. Beds were comfortable. Loved the throw on each... More

Hi Lisa A, Thank you for your review. Sounds like a very enjoyable experience. We do have quite the bustling lobby, especially during our nightly Evening Hosted Wine Reception. As for the room size comment, might I suggest booking our Executive Category for a future stay? For a small upgrade cost, you receive significantly more room. Cheers, Abe Liao Hotel... More

The Palomar DC is very conveniently located on Dupont Circle. The main tourist sites are all within walking distance but if you don't want to walk there is also a metro station very close by and from there you can easily get about the city. The hotel allows pets which we were concerned about as my husband has a pet... More
