Great location within walking distance of various sights both downtown and in the Adams Morgan area. plus the subway at DuPont circle. Warm welcome on checking in and a really nice touch is the complementary evening wine. Nice to have a drink or two before heading out. Staff were also really friendly and helpful around giving directions and recommendations on...

My wife and I popped in for the night before we headed home from our birthday weekend and as usual Kimpton was very good to us. Danielle B. sent us up some chocolate covered strawberries and some champagne which were were very thankful for. We love the complimentary wine hour and had a great breakfast the morning we left.

Loved staying at this Kimpton property which is very close to Dupont Circle. As others have noted, and I will echo, this hotel has a terrific staff: friendly, courteous and very helpful - special kudos to Tafese who could not have been nicer and Ben, who made sure I had an umbrella to ward off early morning rain. My room...

Overall, not worth it. Service was way sub-par. Usually I like Kimpton, especially Palomar, but would not return here. Upon check-in I was told that the regular room my company booked was tiny and really not good for a 5-night stay. The front desk woman told me "as a favor" she could upgrade me to the next best room ......

We stayed at the Kimpton Palomar in DC for a long weekend and walked away impressed with the facility and staff. The front desk staff was upbeat and pleasant during the check-in process and were very helpful when we needed to extend our stay an additional day. Our room was nicely appointed and quiet.

I had never stayed at a Kimpton hotel before. The front desk staff and/or men are incredibly friendly. My room was quite nice despite the view of a brick building from my window. I love that they have a yoga mat and recycling bins in the rooms! The location just off Dupont Circle is excellent! It's only two blocks to...

Great room! We got an awesome price for the area. The staff was attentive and friendly, check-in was a breeze. The room itself was small but cozy and and very chic. The daily wine happy hour was really enjoyable, and the lobby was buzzing with travelers getting to know one another. Would definitely stay again.

Comfortable, functional and excellent location. Very friendly front of house and un-begrudging happy hour. Good local restaurant access and ashort walk to Metro. Rooms are straightforward and functional, but not impersonal. Only negative is that the showers don't drain well (colleague in another room had a similar "flooding" problem - essentially a poor design that does not have a sloping...

I arrived to this hotel and immediately was greeted warmly by all staff. Front desk staff was especially helpful. I like staying at Kimpton hotels because of the modern aesthetic and vibe.
