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 personal touches that I would expect in order to make this so high. When we arrived, we had a nice bootle of wine and some chocolate coated strawberries which was very nice but this didn't get removed once we had finished with it until we left. We were there for 5 nights so you can imagine what state the strawberries were in :-( The cleaning was very sporadic. They refused to remove any rubbish that wasn't in the bin (even though it was blatently rubbish).
The person that checked us in was very friendly but after that it seemed like we were constantly bothering everyone else.
Breakfast was meagre. It consisted of the ability to make your own toast, cereal and some not very nice muffins :-(
We enjoyed our time in Washington DC and will definitely return but we will not be staying here again. We also visited New York and Boston on our honeymoon and the standard of the accomodation at the Palomar was FAR below either of the other two locations.
Shame, I was looking forward to this hotel the most.
