The Hotel Palomar is situated in the best location one could find. Want a bite to eat head in any direction for top-notch restaurants. Want to take the metro to see the sights, not a problem just walk 2 blocks East to DuPont Circle and instantly you are swept away to anyplace in the City. Fell like a good run...

While this place looks like it was decorated by Austin Powers, with animal print throws and retro 60's cues, the hotel and service were very good. The location is impossible to beat, within walking distance to lots of cool places. We drove from NC, parked with the Valet and then just took the Metro or cabs everywhere we wanted to...

We stayed at the Palomar in February, the hotel designated by an association whose board meetings I was attending in DC. I was surprised by the choice because this hotel was a distance from the location of the meetings, the Union Station area. In past years the designated hotel was much closer, last year within easy walking distance. The Palomar...

Dear Eagle1949 Thank you so much for sharing your experience with the world travelers. I am so sorry that our In Room Dining service wasn't up to par.

The nicest staff ever! (They make me want to be a better person) always helpful, always professional - you never sense they are trying to protect the hotel's interests and just inflict rules - they are always leaning into your needs. The rooms are very nice and spacious. The restaurant staff - I like breakfast there - are exceptional!

We stayed recently at Palomar in DC and found the hotel to be very comfortable, nicely appointed, conveniently located near Dupont Circle and peopled by a very friendly and helpful staff.

PARKING is only wallet, and NOT CHEAP - WHOOPING USD 48.00 for 1 night. At 17:00 there is the traditional reception in the downstairs lobby...

We decided on the Palomar for our honeymoon as it had such rave reviews on here. I must say that although it was nice, it could've been much better. We stayed in a king spa room and it was nice and big and the jacuzzi tub (although fiddly to figure out how to use it) was lovely. Lacking however, was...

The location is great and overall, it was what I expect from a Kimpton hotel, but the Palomar has decor that is very dark to the point of being a bit cave-like for my taste.
