"Great hotel near DuPont Circle"
Beautiful lobby with wine and snacks daily plus coffe and hot chocolate other times of the day. Welcoming fireplace. Very attentive, friendly, helpful staff. Front desk guy got us coffee and goodie bags at 4:30 am as we left!
"Like being at home"
After a miserable travel day I was warmly greeted by the front desk staff who went above and beyond to make sure that my arrival was exceptional. They did many things that they didn't have to do - and that makes it a great place to stay. I have stayed here dozens of times, and it is always on my list for when I visit DC - great location, great staff, clean rooms, wonderful restaurant.
"Great Place To Stay by a Brit"
Having stayed in several US cities we thought we'd try Washington DC. Having stayed at a Kimpton in Boston, we thought we'd give the Palomar a try. Location wise it is well positioned between the White House and Georgetown. Hotel itself is very good, large rooms, breakfast included and wine reception between 5pm and 6pm. Staff very friendly and helpful. Although it states Continental breakfast this does include bacon and scrambled eggs. There are a lot of restaurants nearby. Hotel is close to the Dupont circle Metro. We like to explore cities by foot and spent 4 days walking a long way. If you are that way inclined everything is walkable, although you may need a Starbucks en-route and you can always use the Metro back or get a tour bus. Georgetown is around 15 minutes, as is the White House. Georgetown is well worth a visit and make the extra effort to go down to the water front. Us Brits like to shop and we can recommend Tysons Corner on the Silver Line, a large mall. You need to change metro at Metro Centre and get the Silver Line it's around 10-15 minutes, costing $5-$6 dollars. So much to see, the war memorials on the Mall are excellent and very emotional. We were lucky enough to visit Arlington Cemetery on a Saturday leading up to Christmas. There were huge crowds and we learnt that this was to lay wreaths on all of the 400k graves of service personnel and their families. We were really moved and took the opportunity to show our respects by laying wreaths. So much to see in Washington and all the museums are free. Seeing Apollo 11, that circled the moon when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed was amazing. The Palomar and Wahington well worth a visit. We felt very safe walking round. We'd also recommend joining Kimpton Rewards scheme as you qualify for free Wi-Fi, amongst other benefits. The hotel also provide bicycles if you want to explore that way.
"Excellent Hotel close to DuPont"
Has been a good experience to stay at the Hotel. Proximity to the streets in the neighborhood where food, shopping etc is just a few blocks away is a big plus point. The service was good and the ambience inside the rooms was nice. Having the metro station within a short distance was yet another advantage to move to other sites in the city.
In the past 12 months I've traveled to DC several times for business. This is the 4th DC hotel I've stayed in and it's definitely at the bottom of the list. The room was tiny and the lady at the front desk was less than helpful. The conference I attended was in the hotel and again, the rooms were too small. I needed to make a few copies and since there was no business office I was charged $4 for just a few copies. The decorations are nice and modern, but thats about all this hotel has going for them.
