We stayed at the Palomar as part of a fly/stay/drive package booked through BA, and certainly the hotel exceeded our expectations, at the very least. The hotel looked good on the website, but they all do these days, and it can mean nothing, but the Palomar provided very good rooms, excellent sleep quality, and it was in a good location, outside of downtown and close to Georgetown. Honestly, the best way to get around town, from here to The Mall for example, is to take taxis; the drivers all seem to be mute, but their a relatively cheap and certainly easy on the feet (you'll do enough walking as it is).
They offer a welcoming 'wine and nibbles' happy hour from 5pm, which is a nice touch, and joining their loyalty programme meant free WiFi, and we also seemed to receive a complimentary room upgrade upon check-in. Their pool was a refreshing option during very warm and humid July days touring the capital.
Concierge was very helpful in arranging a transfer, and also in helping with a tour company that bombed on us and suggesting an alternative.
The acid test (i.e. would I return): Yes, absolutely.
