When my assistant confirmed she had booked me into the Palomar Hotel I had three thoughts in quick succession. I thought, 'good, thank you, at least I've got somewhere to sleep during the week of July 4th'. Then 'I hope it's not a crunchy carpet mess of a place.' And finally 'what's the 'r' at the end of Palomar for?'... More

The staff were friendly from the moment I walked in the front door until the day out left. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed very comfortable. It was close to Georgetown, which is always a fun place to shop and eat.

Following entirely too much deliberation about where to stay in DC, I booked this hotel on the recommendation of several friends. And I was not disappointed. Room was large (though my uncle's queen room was quite small) and comfortable. The only downside was that late night room service was very limited and incredibly slow. Thanks so much to Dannyboy and... More

I've been a loyal goodwill ambassador of Kimpton properties since I practically lived in the Dallas Palomar Hotel back in '06-'08. So it was an easy choice when I found the Washington, DC Palomar was one of the top recommended choices in the DC area to visit my daughter (who's now a resident) and celebrate another daughter's birthday over a...

Still a great location near Dupont Circle. Desk service personnel are hit and miss. Some know what to do and others see clueless. The rooms looked to have new furnishings. The huge bathroom had a small vanity and no where to hang towels except on the back of the door. The shower curtain had several black marks like fingerprints on... More

We stayed 3 nights here, we were 4 sharing 1 room with 2 queens on the 5th floor. The room was at the back with no view but that was fine, and it was huge in really good condition. Lots of nice touches including a massive TV, Bluetooth speaker, quality items in the big bathroom and a comprehensive minibar. The... More

Stayed for 4 nights with my two teenage boys. Room and hotel were just perfect - two queen beds - and loved the pool. Perfect location for a stay in DC - Dupont Circle (metro) neighbourhood has great restaurants, bars and lovely streets to stroll, while it's just a short walk or uber from Georgetown and the Mall. Highly recommend!

I stayed at the Palomar for one night. I love the Kimpton Hotels yet Palomar is not as memorable or distinct as the others. The neighborhood where the Palomar hotel is located is absolutely gorgeous. I went for a nice long walk after I checked in and Dupont Circle is a beautiful neighborhood. Upon my return I saw numerous pets... More

Well situated, not far from DuPont circle, a rather modern building. The rooms are small for the King bed version, but much bigger for the two queen-beds version. It is clean and not too noisy, but service is really poor. You don't feel welcome, as the people in the front desk usually don't speak with you (except when week-end arrived...).... More
