"Not as good as it use to be"
I have stayed in this hotel many times on my visits to D.C. I really like the location and the amenities the hotel has to offer - pool, happy hour, ' - are very nice. I had not been to the hotel since summer of 2015 and was just there for a quick night in January. They have done a total renovation to the hotel and I think it is ghastly! The cozy rooms with the great lounge chairs and furry blankets are gone. It is all replace with a Flintstones 70s fib - bright garish lighting, uncomfortable chairs - the comfiness of a home away from home is gone. Plus I found it not very clean. The bathroom had pinkish mold growing between the marble floor tiles. I found the back to someone's earring in the bedroom - a clear sign of hap-hazard vacuuming. I was sad that a place I thought was clued into the importance of cleanliness to the traveler, had overlooked it. Maybe it is the new ownership. The staff is still very friendly and nice, and the happy hour is still the huge hit it's always been.
"Vist to Palomar"
Recently updated. Hallways and rooms renovated with new fixtures and furniture. hallways brightened with new fixtures and wallpaper.Greta location near lots of restaurants and shopping. Be sure to enroll in karma rewards, even if not staying in Kimptons regularly. You still get $10 free at the hotel bar or from the mini-bar.
We got a great deal for a weekend at the Palomar and were not disappointed. The hotel is in an okay part of Dupont Circle, on your way to Georgetown. Its a bit to get to the heart of current DC nightlife, but that is what a short Uber ride is for. We were wonderfully great, and we noticed on their website that they listed that they were in the middle of rooms upgrade. Asked for a new room and got it, very pretty, and the elements from the carpet to the nightstands are just wonderful. If you are a part of the Kimpton loyalty program, you get a $10 drink coupon and no resort fee, sign up ahead of time to save this money. All around wonderful stay-cation.
"Where I like to stay in DC"
The Palomar provides consistently good accommodations, good service. I couldn't ask for anything more. Convenient access to the Metro makes getting around easy. Bathrooms exceptionally well done. Special thanks to folks who really helped me out, including Darian, Hussein, Rick, and Philip!
"Great hotel in trendy Dupont Circle"
Had an overall positive stay at the Palomar Hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Was able to check in fairly quickly upon arriving, however after making my way to the top floor and hauling my luggage to my room- I soon found out my room keys did not work. I had to travel all the way back down with my bags to get new keys which caused a bit of a headache. Once in the room I was impressed with the fairly large size. The rooms appeared to be recently renovated and felt up to date. It was well decorated too. I loved the robes in the closet as well as the yoga mat. The TV was huge and had all HD channels. The bathroom was also quite spacious but did not need to be- the toilet sink and shower are all compacted into one area leaving some wasted space elsewhere- but that's just a design flaw. The hotel is just a 5 minute walk to the Dupont Circle metro station which is terrific. There are a number of shops and restaurants close by including a Starbucks a block away. One of the reasons I did not give it a 5-star rating is because my room was not cleaned by the housekeepers. I had left around noon for the day and did not get back until later that evening- I made sure to take off the "do not disturb" sign and yet I came back to find my room untouched. I'm sure it was an accident but it did cause an inconvenience. Nevertheless it is a great hotel and the neighborhood of Dupont Circle is a wonderful base point when staying in DC. I'd definitely consider staying again.
