"What A Great Hotel"
We learned about the Kimpton Hotel Group from the friend of a friend who had stayed at the Palomar. Given its great location near DuPont Circle (close to the subway, great restaurants, laundry establishments, etc), we decided to try it. Our expectations were completely exceeded. The rooms are huge but comfortable with everything one could want on a trip. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we found that the wine and snacks each night at 5:00 pm were complimentary. The restaurant, Urbana, is also outstanding with great food and reasonable prices. For our last night in DC, we stayed near Dulles Airport. Both my wife and our friends from Sweden were mad that I hadn't booked one more night at the Palomar. Since coming home, we have booked a stay at our local Kimpton Hotel to celebrate my wife's birthday next month.
"Usually a good deal for a boutique hotel"
I stayed at the Palomar for a week. It is a nice environment and I like the restaurant attached to the hotel. I got upgraded to a large room that I found very comfortable. However they need some fixing and to be "refreshed". The staff is usually nice, helpful and friendly.
Our four night stay at the Palomar was perfect. The location was close to many great restaurants and the metro. It is a bit do a walk to the Mall but it can be done. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the free wine in the Lobby each night was a big plus. I highly recommend the Palomar.
We stayed here on the last leg of a US tour and we all loved it. It's very stylish throughout, the front desk were incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms are not enormous but sufficient with nice bathrooms, comfy beds, free wifi (if you join the Kimpton loyalty program), nice bathrooms etc. We were offered a free breakfast which I have to say was a little disappointing. Their restaurant was being refurbished so it was in a temporary location (conference room) but the content was decidedly average. Location is great with restaurants nearby and only a steady walk or short taxi to the centre. I would definitely recommend.
"Cannot fault this place"
It was our first time to washington and I opted for a hotel in the DuPont circle in the hope that it would be central enough to walk to all major points of interest. The palomar was perfect for us. A 20 min walk to the White House and all memorials, the same distance to Georgetown, and a 5 min walk to some great restaurants around DuPont circle. Our room was HUGE and had 2 king size beds, the service was fab, and the pool was really useful (and surprisingly outdoors!) on the humid day we had when we couldn't face the sightseeing. If you want a central location in a decent area then this is a good bet. I will definitely recommend.
