We booked a large, double queen room for the whole family - parents and two teenagers - and were happy (and relieved) to find big beds and a spacious room, so it wasn't as uncomfortably intimate as we had feared. We had a problem operating the TV and a technician was sent up immediately; the desk staff, driver and bellhops were friendly and helpful. We liked the well-equipped fitness room but my personal favorite was the wine and snacks served in the lobby in the early evening - a great place to meet with friends in town before heading out for dinner at Dupont Circle. Prices on the room service/restaurant are a little high but we found everything else just great.

Have stayed in Kimpton Hotels before, and like the others, this one was great! Booked this room at a fantastic rate through Hotels tonight, which guaranteed a room for 2 people. We were originally given a king bed, but they gladly upgraded us to a deluxe queen room for the same price. The room was one of the largest I have ever stayed in and the decor was hip and trendy. We missed the cocktail hour, so they gave us drink coupons for a glass of wine at the bar, which was great since we were celebrating a 21st birthday! Location is excellent, with plenty of food choices and the metro only 2 blocks away. Will definitely stay again next time in DC.

Billed as a luxury hotel, the little things matter when you're in that category. Attractive lobby, good location, friendly employees, but first impression of room marred by toilet paper in the toilet, and a short hair prominently remaining on the side of the bathtub. Room was small, which I could understand if the hotel was full, but it didn't appear to be, leaving me with the feeling we were being punished for using a last-minute 3rd party discount booking site, rather than via the hotel. And Kimpton's policy of not giving you credit for the stay with their frequent guest program when you book via a 3rd party discount site is downright unfriendly and makes me not want to stay with them in the future. A guest is a guest, no matter how they booked the room, I would think. In short, this wasn't a bad hotel, but enough little things wrong to make me think of other hotel options for my next visit to DC.

The little things do count. I have followed up with the Housekeeping team. We do encourage out guests to book directly with us and there should not be any published rates on other sites that are less than ours. I promise if you find one that is lower that we will match and give you $25 food and beverage credit. Don't forget that Kimpton Karma members also get a $10 bar credit for every stay. I'd be happy to book you again myself. Don't hesitate call the hotel and ask for me.

We really enjoyed this hotel.
We had to reduce the number of nights of our booking, and as we booked in advance we could not receive a refund. The hotel was kind enough to upgrade our room to a motion spa room for us in lieu of this.
Thank you so much Hotel Palomar - the room was fabulous, very spacious, and the large spa was much appreciated after long days of sightseeing!
The complimentary drinks in the lobby every afternoon, is a great way to wind down after a busy day.
They also provide on request various items for your use, hair straighteners, coffee makers etc, etc, i found this a great add on.
I highly recommend this hotel, although it is a little bit out of the usual tourist spots, but only a short taxi ride.
Will stay again.

Lovely very quiet room on the tenth floor, enjoyed the pool area which could become quite crowded at times. The evening get together was excellent. We met some very interesting people. The hotel was recommended by our son who had stayed here. We are glad we took up his recommendation. The hotel is so well placed it was so easy to get about either by walking or the metro. There are many restaurants no too far from the hotel.

This was a fantastic place to stay. The check-in was easy. The staff was friendly and helpful. The neighborhood had several great places to eat. The happy hour in the lobby was a fun bonus. As for the room, it was large clean and quiet. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun place to stay with easy access to what D.C. has to offer.

This review is based off of a one-night stay this past weekend, but the service was so amazing it's a no brainer that we'll book here again. Check-in was a breeze and the staff was very polite, which was definitely welcomed after a 6+ hour drive into town. We stayed in a King Deluxe Room and it seemed larger than rooms at other boutique hotels - there was plenty of space between the desk and bed. The main area and bathroom were clean and the room smelled nice. The pillows were great although the mattress was a little hard for my taste, as well as my husband's.

The hotel has happy hour every day, Friday they offered a Chardonnay, Pino Noir and their summer drink which was a blend of mandarin vodka, honey and I can't remember what else but it was lovely! The only downfall was that there was no space to really host the happy hour so guests were either left standing or sitting on the entry stairs.

Overnight parking at with the hotel is quite pricey but we were over the traffic and didn't feel like driving around trying to find a lot on our own. It worked in our favor because even though we checked out at noon on Saturday, the hotel held our bags and let us keep our car with them until we were done sightseeing!

Unfortunately I can't review the room service, gym, pool or restaurant but the staff we dealt with was wonderful and had lots of suggestions for things to do and places to go.
