We stayed at the Palomar this past weekend with my pup to visit the cherry blossom festival. First and foremost, the drive down from NYC should take about 4.5 hours more or less. Our attempts to leave late evening to avoid the rush hour traffic resulted in a 5.5 drive due to endless accidents and construction on I-95. We finally... More

We were in town for an event, so someone else chose this location. What an excellent choice they made. All of the employees were attentive, polite, and seemed truly pleased to have us there.During our stay, I asked several questions about directions, where to buy certain items etc, and they went out of their way to get me correct answers....

We stayed at this hotel from 15th March for 5 days. Its a lovely hotel, large clean room and bathroom and we found all the staff very helpful and friendly. The hotel is on to a winner with the wine tasting hour between 5 - 6pm in the lobby, we visited each evening of our stay a great way to... More

Smart hotel with a high service level and friendly atmosphere. In fair walking distance of center Washington but right next to embassey area. Basic breakfast is a little too "cheap" so prepare to pay extra for omelet or other.

Hi leon-lau (Fyn), Thanks for your review. Sounds like a good stay overall. I'll be sure to pass your feedback along about breakfast. We do offer an advanced continental breakfast with Hot Options. We are working on doing a full buffet in the coming months. Stay tuned. Cheers, Abe Liao Hotel Manager More

The rooms are actually fun - not your typical anonymous hotel room. And I specifically go there for the restaurant (Urbana) and bar. There's even a "wine hour" (which I missed last time and they gave me a voucher for the bar). It's just a fun place all around.

Hi Jasmine111aaa, Thanks for your review. Not your cookie cutter Hotel experience. We love just being a little different than the rest. Our Evening Manager's Hosted Wine Reception is great feature. A little party to welcome you back every evening. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Hotel Manager More

Decor not as quirky as some Kimptons - but a completely enjoyable experience. Friendly staff, large rooms, nice size workout facility, great Dupont Circle location. The restaurant - Urban - is great. Breakfast was quick, delicious - just need slightly better lighting for reading! Would stay again.

This is a very classy, elegant hotel right off Dupont Circle; it does not have the quirky character I normally associate (and love) with Kimpton hotels, but rather has a posh modern feel. The rooms are huge and very clean. The front desk staff is terrific, very efficient and friendly. I love the wine hour. There are a lot of... More

Hi long4travel, Thanks for your review. Sounds like just an awesome stay. Thanks for pointing out our location, it's in one of the best in all of DC. The Executive Category rooms are some of the largest "standard" size rooms in the city, for all Hotel brands. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Hotel Manager More

It is really nice - buy stuff from the supermarket across the street because when I woke up at 4 due to jet lag I couldn't get coffee and had to wait until 6 am when they start serving coffee at the lobby. Gym is 24 hours. I would come again. Overall, it's sufficient to what you pay.

Hi CluelessRiyadh, Thanks for your review on TripAdvisor. Sounds like a pretty good stay. For future reference, you may request a coffee maker in advance of your stay and we will proactively place it in your room. Our gym is huge, thanks for pointing this out.

Hotel was very nice and great location. Elevators under maintenance… slow. We had very loud disruptive neighbors first night. Lukas at front desk was fantastic…..kind and professional. He changed our room, upgraded and reduced first night significantly. This was all in response to our calls the previous night. He even went so far as to ensure the room next to... More

Hi Lem0nLulu, Thanks for your review. Sounds like overall a good stay, minus some issues with the elevators and noise. So you know, the elevator work is the first step in a major renovation for the property that is scheduled to really take off at the end of this year. Thank you for acknowledging Lukas as well, he is one... More

This is a very nice decorated hotel. The room we got was large and well equipped. The main problem was the size of the bed. It was a small queen size bed that just too small for a couple ( and we both very thin). It felt very uncomfortable, when I complained at the front desk the answer I got... More
