Large room and in an excellent hotel, best service I have got in a hotel in the USA. Cocktail hour with free drink always a bonus. The pool area was crowded with families however, Free wifi was also included.

Very pleased with my stay at Palomar DC. I booked on a 3rd party site for a better rate, which typically means you get lower category rooms. With that knowledge, I asked upon check-in if I could get a decent room. I ended up with a very spacious (almost suite-like) room. Moral of the story...all you have to do is... More

My wife and I with two teenagers stayed for three days and three nights in August 2014. We had a large room with two queen sized beds. We were VERY impressed by this hotel. The location is great (near Metro - walking distance to Georgetown). The restaurant was still closed for rennovations, but the free breakfast buffet in a meeting... More

This hotel is on P Street which we walked to from the bus station. It was worth the long haul in the heat and we couldn't wait to try out the pool when we arrived. Staff all really friendly. Room amazing. Spacious with everything we could think of at our disposal...even a yoga mat. The only criticism I have is... More

Our booking was made via our travel agent. We stayed for 3 nights. Our room was OK, comfy bed but no view. We looked out onto a brick wall. We had booked as two couples and did have rooms next to each other, which was nice. A breakfast of pastries and coffee was included in our price. We stayed over... More

...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
