Every single person we encountered at this hotel from the valet to the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Philip at the Concierge desk was knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations. He went above and beyond to make sure we had plenty of options and even sent wine, cheese, and a handwritten card to our room. We also were pleasantly surprised by the chocolate strawberries and champagne sent by the front desk staff because we were there celebrating our wedding anniversary. The wine hour was a great way to relax after a day of sightseeing. The coffee in the lobby was very good also. We had the motion spa king room, though we booked the regular spa king. The room was comfortable and clean. The spa tub was fantastic. This hotel really made our trip something special. This is the only hotel that we will stay in should we return to the D.C. area. I will definitely be seeking out more Kimpton hotels in the future.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Palomar Hotel in Washington, DC. The Manager on Duty, Lizann Thompson took care of our needs. We enjoyed the "happy hour" they offered each evening. They also provided plushy robes and soft socks for guests in each room. The location is close to all the DC attractions and is close to transportation. There is also a good Bagel shop right across the street that opens at 5 a.m. for a quick breakfast. The hotel offers good coffee in the lobby in the morning as well. I would definitely stay there again!

Stayed here for a long weekend in mid october. The reception and service were great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They made several good recommendations throughout the stay.

The location is also great. Dupont cirlce is three minute walk. Georgetown is a fifteen minute walk or an eight dollar cab ride. Perhaps this location is what allows them to charge 43 dollars per day in parking fees. Please consider this when you see their rates. I had a King room for 200 dollars per night. Of course, adding parking fees effectively raises that.

The wifi is free for Kimpton members. It is of adequate speed.

They have a wine reception every night which is nice. The bar is trendy.

I stayed here over the weekend (college and pro football games). The TV in the room does not have any high definition feeds. This is unacceptable for a hotel of this caliber. The football games were fuzzy and blurry. If I am paying 200+ per night, I think they should have Hi definition channels. Heck, the major networks broadcast over the air in Hi Def for free.

While overall I enjoyed my stay, I would avoid this place if you are a football fan or enjoy watching in room movies. As I said, I hotel of this caliber should have hi def feeds.

Thank you so much for your positive review catchyjingle. We are pleased that your enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the Urbana bar shoutout. It is quite trendy and a great place to hang out around DuPont Circle. In regards to the television I can totally understand your frustration with the lack of Hi Def and i ensure you we are diligently working on a solution. Thank you for staying with us again, we look forward to welcoming you back soon- Jerry Chou

Arranged a surprise trip for my partners birthday and picked this up at the last minute for a great rate.

Arrived after a long flight to a warm welcome and a smiling face!

Check-in took no time and we went off to our massive room. All the usual goodies in the room. A wine reception in the lobby certainly helped and off we went to bed for a pre-supper nap!

It was a totally brilliant stay!



Anyway

Thank mick o
