I just finished a stay at the Palomar in Washington, DC, and I couldn't be happier with it.
The hotel is located in Dupont, which is an excellent neighborhood with great restaurants but within very close proximity to Downtown DC. The lobby is quite dark but has a very chic and fun appeal to it-- trendy but unpretentious is how I would describe it.
As an Inner Circle member (i.e., a frequent guest of Kimpton properties) I have come to appreciate the incredible commitment to customer service which Kimpton properties provide, and this one was a prime example. I arrived quite late on a Thursday night, and was greeted by several people. They were doting and very kind to me, and I felt extremely special. Additionally, given my Inner Circle status I was provided a beautiful cheese and grapes plate and a bottle of wine, and was upgraded from a basic room to the beautiful Spa Suite. The suite is absolutely amazing, and a true destination in itself. It features two rooms (a bedroom and a desk/couch/TV room), and a beautiful bathroom with a large soaking spa tub. I was in town on business and certainly appreciated the ability to relax so comfortably here.
I was particularly tended to by front desk manager Jerry, along with Candace (sp?). Jerry was kind enough to provide me a late check-out which allowed me to shower after my business meeting and attend to a very important personal function in the evening-- this was most appreciated!
My only regret was that I was not with my significant other to share in the beautiful stay-- with this in mind I will be sure to return for a personal trip.
Post-stay I had a follow-up question regarding my stay and Cornelia was most helpful as well.
All in all, superb service, and really made me feel like a VIP. Will be sure to continue to be a loyal Kimpton member and am looking forward to return stays at the Palomar.
