I am just returning from two nights at the Palomar. It was a very pleasant visit. The location is quite good... Just a few blocks from DuPont Circle in a slightly more residential area where it's a little bit quiet. But don't let that put you off.. It's a three minute walk to the circle and a load of restaurants... More

I had a 3 night stay in this great hotel, close to the Dupont Circle metro station and a great Turkish restaurant and coffee shop. All the staff at the reception were very helpful and the wine hour (5-6 pm) and free morning coffee were a nice touch. I would recommend staying on the second floor as it gives easy... More

What you should expect for a 4-star experience. We got a spacious room, although quite neutral in design (brown color scheme). I believe they had better rooms in the hotel, but we specifically asked for a quiet room so maybe that's the reason we haven't been given a more modern room. The location to Dupont Circle is excellent and also... More

We stayed at The Palomar for 1 night and selected this property for the convenient location to both Georgetown and GWU and because there is an outdoor pool, which is MUCH smaller than the pictures appear. Although in a residential area, cabs are easy to obtain. Staff greeted us immediately and assisted with our bags. Our room was very large,... More

We stayed here for a four night city break in July and were really pleased with our choice. The location is great - it is a fair walk to the White House and National Mall but we did do it in the July heat (28 degrees). It is also close to Georgetown and to the metro at DuPont Circle. The... More

We stayed here for 4 nights middle of July as the first hotel on our DC, NYC & Boston trip. It was by far the best hotel of the holiday. The staff are friendly & the hotel has a good vibe for business & tourists alike, didn't feel out of place. We were celebrating our 40th birthdays & Maggie on... More

Stayed here as a mature couple in June. Good location as Dupont Circle just a five minute walk away. Not so good if you would like a choice of bars and reasonable restaurants. Other than the hotel itself there is only one bar nearby and you wouldn't take your wife or mother there! One decent restaurant the rest poor, cheap... More

We had never stayed at a Kimpton hotel before and were, perhaps, unprepared for its eccentricities. The room was spacious and well appointed. The staff were really friendly and helpful. I can fault nothing but the rather expensive wifi. At $13 a day it is the most I have ever had to pay. We arrived late after a delay in... More

A really nice Dupont Circle area hotel, very nice staff, close to Philips Collection, good ethnic restaurants, Metro stop, etc. Doormen helped with luggage and flagging taxis. Pleasant room, nice pool although I didn't have time to use it.

I love Kimpton hotels, and have stayed at a variety. This is by far the most disappointing. Here's why: 1. No vibe at all- a dead lobby- just no energy 2. Very small rooms 3. Really? Out of blankets? 4. A/C that cannot be set less than 66 degrees F Some of this is minor, but I guess I just... More
