I planned to stay at the Hotel Palomar as a weekend getaway for my fiance's 30th birthday. We felt like VIPs from the moment we walked in; free room upgrade (unexpected!), and champaign and chocolate covered strawberries were delivered to our door minutes after we settled in. The lobby was so cozy and comfortable that we spend one night after dinner just relaxing by the fireplace with a glass of wine. We are thrilled with our experience and can't wait to come back!

cons:
few and what there were inaccessible power plugs
not massive towels
lots of individual lights to turn on and off
heavy scented room freshner
no bath - even after specific request

pros:
massive room - I was told I was upgraded but bit excessive really. I would have preferred a better bathroom
massive bed
fantastic curtains
nice pillows - never underestimate this

cab from airport ok - c.$45, back to the airport was $65
UK - time out guide spot on as always
open top bus - really good way to get bearings
metro easy to use once overcome difficult instructions on buying a ticket - like a carnet

nice local area, lots of eating choices (although no diners for breakfast)- definetly a walk to the sights if you then want to walk all day too, my feet were tired lots, but nice to have a separate part of town to the main hotspots in the evening

got metro to he shops at friendship heights for the shops - lord and taylor, saks, bloomingdales, etc

Not sure I would pay the $299 p/n (with c.$45 tax on top) again though

Room Tip: ask for what you want - smoking v non smoking, pet v non pet, high v low, quiet etc

Dear CSN,

I am sorry you found our organic air freshener to be too strong; this is being addressed by our Director of Housekeeping. Please accept my apologies for the bath towel size not being accommodating enough; we can certainly provide additional bath towels upon request.

I was pleased to note you enjoyed your large guest room, including the bedding and black out curtains, and that you really made use of the nearby Metro subway system to see all the sites in DC.

We look forward to your next visit,

Thomas

Once again cheers to the Kimpton crew... the Palomar Washington DC is an outstanding property. The staff is the key, Thomas, Paula, .. doorman, room service.. you can just sense the pride of this team... ( Stella and I see this at all Kimpton properties)... Upon check in , we were given a motion room, which had a seperate exercise area... very cool, and no excuse to work out...The room was chic and very comfortable, bathroom excellent.... This is truly a great property... love that pets are allowed... Our two dogs make the Epic in Miami their home ... WIne hour wonderful, great lobbly with cozy fireplace.. ... The location by Dupont circle is excellent... what can we say Stella and I look forward to our next stay in DC.. @ the Palomar..
Cheers.
Tom and Stella

Room Tip: Motion room excellent.. loved the seperate exercise area and huge soaking tub... wow!

It was a pleasure meeting you in the lobby during our evening wine hour. I am delighted you are already looking forward to your next visit. I am glad you enjoyed all of your interactions with our staff and that liked your Motion Room accommodations. Hopefully your two dogs will make next trip!
