Reviewed 25 July 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Palomar hotel on the DC leg of our honeymoon. Proximity to the city centre, Georgetown and to local transport was ideal. The staff were genuinely nice, which I think Europeans and especially Irish people really appreciate rather than the 'bottled generic politeness' more often encountered in the USA. The hotel itself is very comfortable. The rooms have everything necessary for a pleasant stay. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel if one is lucky enough to visit DC.

I stayed at the Palomar this past January in a deluxe room and I was really happy with the accommodations. The room was spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. The bed was comfortable, the closet had plenty of room, and the shower was great. I also found the front desk staff to be very friendly and helpful.

Apart from the room, I also really enjoyed the bar downstairs. The oysters were great!

My husband and I traveled to DC for a 4 day visit and stayed at the Palomar. I love that they accept my beloved mini poodle with no issues and appreciate that they are pet friendly. I'm not a big fan of urban hotels, but this one was pretty good. We had an upgraded room which was nice, but the property is a bit tired and could use an update. It is full of hip young people and has a great bar and restaurant called Urbana. The pizzas are great and the cocktails rocked! We were on the 10th floor, and it was suprisiningly quiet. However, the bathroom was tiny and had no soaking tub. Additionally, the elevators are tiny and very slow. The pool is tiny and too crowded to actually enjoy, but the staff is nice and we enjoyed our stay.

We had a 3 night stay in this hotel.The bedroom and bathroom large well equipped and comfortable.The bath robes are novel but stayed on the hanger.All the staff we met were friendly and helpful and a credit to the hotel.The hotel is within 5 minutes walk to a Metro station.The restaurants within walking distance are numerous and of good quality,so a good location after touring the sites.2 minor irritations,the seating arrangement for the continental breakfast,low bar seats and table are not conducive to eating,the pool attendant requesting to vacate the pool while he pours 5 litres of bleach / chlorine into the water,this operation should be when the pool is closed.Overall I enjoyed my stay.

Going to the Kennedy Center to see Book of Mormons and wanted to stay in town rather going home to the burbs. This hotel provides lots of extras as a Kimpton In-touch member that we appreciated such as a bottle of champagne and chocolate strawberries as they knew it was my wife's birthday. The rooms are large and roomy and the attached restaurant called Urbana had a great bar and unique pizza bar where you could drink and watch them make you $8 pizza's during happy hour! Be aware this is a dog friendly hotel which makes for great dog watching and yet there was no evidence of odor or other pet related issues you might think would occur. The location is right of DuPont circle and there are plenty of bars and rest. in the area but Urbana may be your best bet and you don't have to leave the hotel. As usual, what sets this place apart from the chains is their smiling accommodating staff. This is the second Kimpton property we've stayed in during the last 2 months in the DC area and we are quite impressed. Must mention however that valet parking is $43 with a $7 city tax!

The hotel accomodations were excellent and the staff were first-rate. We stayed in a suite that was very spacious and included all the desired amenities. The hotel was located within walking distance of lots of restaurants and convenience stores. The hotel was also within a reasonable walking distance of the heart of the Georgetown restaurant and shoppoing district. What made the hotel standout from an experience perspective was the friendliness and "can do" attitude of the entire hotel staff. We were greeted by name and every hotel staff member we interacted with provided exceptional service with a smile. We will definitely stay here again on our next return trip to Washington, DC.
