The Palomar is in an excellent location for seeing the District. Only a short walk from the Metro station at Dupont Circle. We stayed in an Executive King room which featured a very comfortable bed and plenty of space. The only disappointment was that the reception on the television was poor for local channels (cable channels came in just fine)... More

We were meeting old friends for a weekend in DC where all of us had lived in the 70's. Having stayed at other Kimpton Hotels in other cities, I suggested we try the Palomar. Suffice it to say, I received "kudos" all weekend for my hotel recommendation. First of all, the location could not be better. It's only a short... More

The hotel looks like it needs revamping and a good cleaning. First impression, dirty front doors. Room smelled like dog. There was a problem during the night with another rooms loud partying at 3:00 am. Security responded but it did not end for awhile. Overall, mediocre hotel.

Having been participating at a conference elsewhere in town, I spent a free weekend in DC before flying back to Europe. Using Expedia I had randomly picked this hotel which looked nice on the internet and offered a really good rate. It also had some positive reviews, so I expected it would be nice. "Nice" turned out to be the... More

Great location. Room was huge! Complimentary wine and coffee. Parking expensive. Try to find street parking. Decor was very modern and bar was great. Will definitely stay there again! A pleasant surprise since we on a web based sight..........

Visited as couple in November 2014, fabulous big room, hotel is very "boutique". Free wine & nibbles in the reception is a great idea although it does get very busy. Staff are wonderful - happy & helpful - service is excellent! Lots of restaurants & cafes nearby to grab breakfast & dinner at a reasonable price. We ate in the... More

I stayed at the Palomar for one night and left wishing I could stay there longer. The room was great- large, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I had breakfast at the hotel and they service was prompt and food was good, albeit a bit pricey. I was able to find street parking around the corner which... More

The free wine at 5 was a nice feature. We added the breakfast to our stay and were pleased with that. They upgraded our room, it is a good idea to be a member of their rewards club, it was a nice and spacious room. The location was good, close to the metro.I would stay there again.

We had a fantastic stay at the Palomar this past week end. The front desk, door men, housekeeping were all attentive and helpful. The location was good, lots of restaurants, bars and shopping close by.
