We stayed here with 2 teenagers for 4 nights in Dec 2012. The room was very spacious, and the bed very comfortable. the service was also terrific - nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is located is a great area, right near a train station, and getting around was very easy. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: the restaurant at the hotel is great - not too pricey.

The Palomar has beautiful and spacious rooms and is a great option to stay in DC. I have stayed here before a couple of years ago, and do recommend it. Really love the rooms. The gym is nothing to write home about, but the rest is great.

Stayed January 11-13 at the Hotel Palomar. Centrally located in the heart of DC, steps from Dupont Circle. Upon arrival, we were graciously welcomed by the valet. The check-in process was a breeze, allowing us to quickly get to our room (#832). I'll note that I made the reservation via Priceline.com and paid $100 per night. Quite a steal. The room was clean, tastefully decorated and suited our needs just fine. The bed was very comfortable, too. Our only complaint being that it was quite easy to hear any noise coming from the hallway. Kind of surprising, especially since our room was quite far from the elevator. We were both awakened both nights during our stay by noises coming from the hall. I mentioned this at checkout and was comped one evening's parking ($48 p/night).

Room Tip: A number of rooms have no view (e.g., 832). Also, ask for a room away from the elevators.

This is the third time that we come back to stay a week at Thanksgiving and we would not stay anywhere else in Washington. The staff, staff, staff, make this hotel special. The rooms are large and very comfortable and well designed and thought out. So you have proper lighting where you want it. The design is classic, not over the top and trendy, so you feel comfortable. The bathrooms are also large and the towels always thick and soft.

Breakfast is always included in my package and it is good. Free coffee/tea and newspapers in the morning. Wine bar at night is enjoyable.

We stayed at the Palomar for 4 nights between Christmas and New Year and couldn't fault it. OK, the outdoor pool was closed, but there was no way I was going bathing outside in that weather. Otherwise, everything about it was first rate from the doormen, reception, restaurant staff and housekeeping. Comfortable, well appointed rooms and bathrooms, the only thing missing, and maybe it's a British thing, is tea and coffee in the rooms. Having said that there was complimentary tea and coffee in reception each morning and a Starbucks on the corner. Each evening there was complimentary wine in reception which was a great touch. Complimentary wifi, I can't think of anything else you'd want really. Would definately stay there again if I went to Washington.
