I stayed here for the Digestive Diseases Week May of 2015. This was my FIRST experience with a Kimpton Hotel Chain so I didn't know what to expect. However, there was excellent staffing with a 24 hour concierge (desk staff substituted @ odd hours but were just as knowledgeable). The location was fairly centralized ALTHOUGH I confess I'm NOT familiar... More

Stayed for 3 nights in April. Lovely, modern and clean hotel in a great location. Rooms were on the small side but this didn’t really worry us. The hotel is 2 mins walk from Du Pont Circle which is great for bars/restaurants. We walked to the White House (25 mins) and to the shops at Georgetown (35/40 mins). Would recommend... More

You can walk to get most anywhere from this location, and if you don't wish to walk, Uber is thriving. Desk staff, housekeeping, and bartender Lance all rate accolades as is typical of the staff in Kimpton properties we have stayed in. We stayed three nights in room 908. A very comfortable bed. A single sink with a couple minor... More

Stayed here as it was a convention hotel. The walls are very thin so can hear the TV and conversations next door. First night was a nightmare as the occupants played loud music until after midnight then left the TV on very loudly while they went out. To their credit, the main desk sent security to talk to then and... More

Have yet to be let down by a Kimpton hotel and the DC Palomar was no exception. As always, valet to check-in was a smooth process and the room exceeded par. Very impressed and will definitely stay on my next trip to Washington DC.

Very nice property on Dupont Circle, very handy to everything but enough out of downtown to be very pleasant. Close to Metro. Staff was exceptional. We had a mess-up with our reservation through a booking company and were shorted one day on our reservation. The town was booked but staff stayed on it every day and got us the extra... More

This hotel is located in a quiet part of Washington (away from the central areas) but is within a short walk of the nearest Metro Station. Being near to many Embassies it felt safe to walk about late at night in the area. The hotel room we had was excellent but did not have any good views of the city.... More

I love Kimpton hotels and the Palomar in DC is no exception. DC is not a cheap city to visit so I was spending a lot but am very satisfied with what I got. I was lucky enough to get a decent rate during a flash sale. Check-in was wonderful with extremely friendly agents. We arrived during their wine/beer happy... More

Rarely do I find myself so happy with a hotel. Excellent location, just a couple of blocks from Dupont Circle. Excellent service. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms. Lots of good dining in the immediate vicinity. Convenient to the Metro. If not for the temperamental door lock on the room and the lack of HD tv, it would be the... More
