We had a brief stay during a college visit to American. The hotel staff is fantastic about making you feel welcome. As a karma rewards member, we were given drink vouchers, breakfast vouchers and minibar vouchers. The room was spotless and uniquely decorated. The only drawback was the valet costs but that's more about being in DC than Kimpton. Will...

I'm not sure where to begin. I found this hotel through TripAdvisor read all the reviews and decided to visit the hotel website to find out more about this particular chain of boutique hotels. I can't say enough about the hotel and the staff. I was in D.C. to visit colleges with my daughter and was a little skeptical about...

Like so many of the Kimpton hotels, Hotel Palomar is not much to look at from the outside; in fact it is rather off-putting with its 1970s architectural ugliness. The special design touches are saved for where guests will appreciate them, on the inside. Hip and happening design elements surround the guest from the front lobby to the hallways to...

The one thing keeping me from giving this property five stars was the elevator situation...as in one of the elevators wasn't working and I had to keep walking down from the 7th floor to the lobby because all the pathetically small elevators were totally full when they got to me. That's kinda basic. Some other minor things were problematic. Kimpton...

Great spot near DuPont Circle. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Plus they have complimentary coffee/tea in the morning and wines at the end of the day. Would stay there again and recommend to others.

We needed a place to stay while touring colleges in February. The DuPont Center location made it easy to get to everywhere in the city. Our room was quite large, clean and comfortable. I wish it had a comfy chair(s) to sit in as there was plenty of room. If you stay at a Kimpton, make sure you join the...

We absolutely loved this hotel. It is close to Dupont Circle and a little over a mile away from Georgetown. The room was beautiful, however at times did seem a bit musty. That is really my only complaint about this hotel. The evening wine hour with hors d'oeuvres is great. The on-site restaurant is pricey, but tasty. I will definitely...

The personal attention given to me by every single hotel staff member I came into contact with was just superb. The room was extremely inviting, very clean, and the decor very posh. Loved how close the hotel was to everything I needed to access during my stay. Unexpected perks like the in-room yoga mat and evening wine social were great....

Great Location, well appointed, very comfortable and large room. A quick ride away to main monuments and museums. Uber is everywhere. Phillips collection is walking distance and a must (free on tuesdays). Complimentary wine every afternoon and coffee & hot chocolate was a very nice touch! Would definitely come back!

Yasser Bautista, Front Office Manager: Mila L, I know I wouldn't mind staying somewhere that offers complimentary wine in the evening only to follow up with the coffee cure in the morning ;) Just one of the little quirks that makes staying with a Kimpton hotel so much fun. We're thrilled to learn that you got to enjoy everything Palomar...
