Just returned from a 7 night stay at the Palomar. It is high on my list but Iwe did encounter just a few weak spots. The things we loved: The rooms are well appointed and spacious. We were upgraded to a suite (extremely nice and large) for a nomimal charge. The basic rooms are great too, it was nice to have the extra space. The front desk was very helpful and always pleasant. the pool area, though small was very nice for a downtown location. The room was clean, bed great, very restful after a long day . It was very nice to have coffee in the lobby in am, lemon water during the day and a very nice wine reception each day fro 5-6pm. The retuarants in the area are plentiful and very good. Didn't have a bad meal! Urbana restaurant attached to the hotel is very good too. The location of the hotel is very convenient (near Dupont Circle) Now for the negatives: The concierge was not up to par. They were rude at times, very curt and were not very knowlegable. One example: we wanted to take a side trip to Mt. Vernon and got poor and multiple information. They need to spruce up the concierge department!! The only other complaint I had was that for a suite , we only had one sink ( a modern above sink--very impractical!) and the shower looked liked it needed a good scrub, wallpaper needs freshening! All in all we would recommend this hotel and would return .
