"A Terrific Find!"
We could not get a room at our normal Hotel in DC snce they were sold-out for a Convention. American Express suggested the Palomar to us as a back-up location and we gave it a try. It is awesome! We were fortunate to get upgraded (due to AMEX Platinum) into a small Suite. The place is impeccably clean, has hip, clean art work everywhere, a very relaxing and comfortable bed and more than ample lighting. The Bathroom was large, had terrific water pressure, and wonderful amenities including a some body lotion wiith just the right fragrance. Check-in and Check-out was a snap and the Lobby is both inviting and spotless. Chilled water, hot tea and other beverages are served gratis in the Lobby. The Hotel has a single restaurant which serves a full breakfast along with both lunch and dinner. The Hotel also offers 24/7 Room Service with an extensive Menu to choose from for every meal - or just to have a snack. In addition, the room has a fully-stocked mini-bar. In D.C., all Hotels are a bit pricy. However, I think the Palomar gives its Guests a very good bang for the buck! We like this place - a lot! So much so that we will, for sure, use it again when we return to the Capitol area. The Palomar is a gem - give it a try!
"Excellent Hotel in the Dupont Circle area"
I found the hotel to have a great location,within walking distance of the White House and museums as well as a short walk from Georgetown. Like all Kimpton hotels, the lounge with the fireplace going was very inviting even prior to the evenings wine tasting. On the day I arrived, I just missed one of the many snowstorms this season, so the restaurant was not very crowded, however the food and drink were excellent and the staff very welcoming. Pluses - bed was very comfortable, shower very soothing and the breakfast buffet though small offered an excellent selections of warm dish as well as breads. Negative - Staff communication or lack there of - I was expecting a morning UPS delivery, but due to the snowstorms my package showed delayed so I called down to the front desk to ask when their UPS normally delivered so I knew when to worry and how to plan my day. The only answer I received was " I have no idea". I did not expect him to know to the minute when they normally delivered but I thought I could expect a 'normally around..." answer. The afternoon staff was not much better as I had told them that I expected a delayed package and I had to leave for the airport as soon as I received it and I would be waiting in the lobby. It was only when I checked the UPS tracking (great free wifi in the lobby), that I noticed that it had been delivered. I approached the front desk who cheerfully confirmed that in fact it had been delivered (via the loading dock). Bottom line is that I will stay here again for it's comfort and location when I return next, and hopefully the communication will be better at that time should I have any questions.
"Wonderful weekend in Washington DC."
We enjoyed every minute of our DC weekend. The hotel was well situated to Georgetown and Dupont circle. Our room was spacious and well appointed. Bath was very adequate. I'd stay there again in a minute.
"I cannot recommend a hotel more highly"
Besides being an elegant and wonderfully run hotel on the quiet side of Dupont Circle, the staff are genuinely kind and compassionate. I'd enjoyed my stays there before, but they dazzled me this last visit. My Mom was in hospice and this was her last trip to the city. I did not expect them to upgraded us to the presidential suite, send cupcakes, pay for breakfast and comp our parking. Kimpton hotels have been my hotel of choice for a long time with good reason, but the generosity and kindness they showed on this trip was beyond expectation. Every interaction with a staff person was exceptional.
We drove down from northern Maryland for a last minute weekend getaway and couldn't have been happier with this hotel. From helping us check in early to ensuring we had an upgraded room, the customer service was outstanding. Everyone we encountered on the property was extremely kind and helpful. Furthermore, the room was perfect for us. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we return to D.C.
