"Awesome Shower Head! And Courteous Staff!"
The Palomar of DC - Is a wonderful hotel! - with all the amenities and without any pretentious-ness! As all Kimpton’s, complementary wine and small apps are served at 5:00.. Yes the wine was even a quality high enough, to enjoy the wine... The staff is so caring and courteous everyday and every time they see you through-out the day! Always a greeting, with a inquisitiveness for making themselves available to help. The whole hotel is clean and sharp. The rooms are also well thought out. Comfortable beds, Latest equipment in the rooms, Free WiFi, Lighted 3x make up mirror and Good old "Speakman" brand shower head that feels great to shower in! Only about 2 blocks from the Dupot Circle Metro, and in a real good neighborhood. I will certainly return to stay again, the next time I'm staying in the DC area.
"Huge, but dark rooms, excellent tourist class hotel"
Huge rooms, but they are very darkly decorated, that being said, its ideal to have a P-Street windowed room. The hotel gives off a little bit of a hard rocker vibe but without loud music. This is not a luxury hotel, gives off a boutique vibe occasionally but overall feels like a big tourist class hotel... especially in the morning and evenings when the small lobby is overcrowded with tourists gathering around for a coffee or wine. The breakfast is not worth it, but the proximity to Dupont circle is ideal for easy quick breakfast fare.
The Palomar Hotel is located in Dupont Circle. A good place to stay in DC and quieter than in the downtown. It is a very popular hotel. The Metro is within walking distance of the hotel -- about 10 minutes away. For $14 you can get a day pass. Only a few stops away from attractions. CVS is nearby as are restaurants. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Check-in and check-out were both very fast. The Executive King room is large and well maintained. It was always very clean and the bed was fairly comfortable. A very good hotel to stay at!
"We loved the hotel."
My sister was going to stay at this hotel with her husband when he couldn't go last min she invited my son and I to go with her! We loved the hotel . we stayed in room 709 executive king, no breakfast included but wish we did they have a lovely restaurant there! The room is clean, spacious, and i love the light, it dims so when you go to bathroom at night your not blinded by a bright light!. Since the hotel was meant to be for my sister and her husband there was one bed, we did let them know a night before , they didnt seem to make any changes, which is fine for us. We all slept in the king bed , very very comfortable! they did offer to put in an extra twin but we said no need for it. We weren't offered any free wifi , but i believe that you can get free wifi with membership. I always like to look for a hotel with indoor pool , this hotel has a outdoor pool that we took a quick peek , looked very nice wish it was summer for us to go in! We took a look at the gym , sculpture room , and it looked nice, but i for one don't seem to have a chance to go to the hotel gyms, (or at home lol) The hotel allows pets, we saw many cute dogs and every dog we would see my son (6) would remind us we could have brought ringo! so if you want to bring your dog along to a DC trip this hotel is right for you! It is a good location with restaurants and cafes all around. Close to CVS , and a bagel place right across the street! we had our breakfast there! lovely bagels! and other choices too! didst even need to go to Starbucks up the street, their caramel latte was just as good. It is a 15 min drive from all main attractions like the lincoln, memorial,washington monument etc. We had our car , so wasn't that bad, we spent a llot on parking and hard time find parking places. It always had a taxi waiting at the door so that can be an option too. Parking was expensive at hhotel 53$ a night, its Vallet parking and are pretty good with getting car ready for you . All in all it was a good choice my sister made for her husband and herself, which turned out to be a good choice for us three as well! i recommend this hotel if you have a car and or don't mind taking taxi/metro to main attractions.
"So many issues"
Well I don't even know where to start there were so many issues. I had an executive room which was large, two king size beds and a table. I was there for a conference. Firstly, the room was outdated. Apparently they are renovating at the moment. It was dirty - I found bits of garbage from previous occupants in a few places. There was no amenities book anywhere in the room telling me where they were so I had to keep contacting the front desk. They blamed the renovations which didn't make sense. The soundproofing in the rooms is so bad I could literally hear almost every word of the occupant in the next room and the consistent whining of a dog - the hotel allows pets. I was told they know the soundproofing is an issue and the renovations would take care of it. I wanted coffee in the room as there was no coffee maker. I was promised one but after an hour had to call down as none had arrived. They then expedited it and I did receive it but only decaf! The guy said he would get regular but never came back. I then phoned down for a coffee jug which they brought up but the coffee was luke warm at best. I gave up. I ordered room service later on - a steak. Medium. Part of it was medium, part well done. No steak knife. I could barely cut it the steak was so tough. Half the TV channels were unwatchable as the reception was so bad. The bill was supposed to be charged to my conference group but I've been told I have to pay it personally. Still looking into that. For almost $300 a night, this hotel is a joke. I would never have stood for all of this if it was being paid by myself.
