This was my first time STAYING in DC but it was definitely not the last. I went with a friend who was celebrating her birthday and the Palomar truly out-did themselves. Gave us a beautiful room with a high floor, as well a bottle of champagne with chocolate strawberries waiting for us in the room upon checkin!

The staff was amazing, shout outs to Gordon for checkin, Joy for her amazing smile and attitude on the overnight and Phil the concierge for dealing with my slightly annoying requests. ;)

Urbana was awesome too, can't beat happy hour prices! All around an amazing stay and for sure will be coming back, so expect us! :)

Room Tip: the 01 line is amazing

This review is long-coming; I actually stayed here in 2010 when I needed a convenient dog-friendly hotel. The Palomar was perfect and the staff very friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean and I felt very comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I have to start with I love Kimpton hotels. The Palomar DC was in a great location (Dupont Circle) with access to the metro, great restaurants, etc. Of course the happy hour is always a plus (had a hot toddy for the first time and really liked it), staff was extremely friendly (it's what you become to expect at a Kimpton), but the rooms and common areas need a little more attention to detail and definitely more cleaning. While everything was "neat" there is definitely wear and tear - wallcovering in bathroom was dirty (all you need is to wipe it down) and the light switches in the bathroom were disgusting (again just give them a wipe). Elevators were beat with trash in the corners (who would throw trash on the floor of an elevator). Asked for a quiet room and got one that looked over a dumpster and parking lot (not very appealing). Lots of trucks coming and going early in the morning too so while it was quite at night, don't expect to sleep late. Overall really nice hotel but will probably try the Monaco next time we're in town.

Room Tip: When asking for a quiet room make sure it's not one that overlooks delivery door.

STAY HERE, hotel is close to perfection!!
I'm a kimpton inner circle member so I stay regalury in kimpton hotels, I have to say that this one together with the epic hotel in Miami is one of their best hotels.
The staff is absolutely fantastic, the rooms are HUGE, the location is just perfect, the bar is terrific, the fire place in the lobby creates a great atmosphere I can not name one bad thing about this hotel! I had a king spa suite which is highly recommendable!
I'm going back for work in a few weeks to dc and I can honestly tell you that I going back to this hotel for sure!!
Top hotel!!

Hotel lobby was cozy and inviting. Staff at the desk was friendly and professional. Restaurant was a nice place to unwind after a trip. First glass of wine was free, though our red wine was just ok. We tried their freshly made thin-crust pizza and it was delicious. Restaurants staff was courteous and efficient. Elevators were a touch small and wood panels had obvious scratches. Found two candy wraps at the corner of an elevator one morning and noticed the same wraps when we came back after breakfast. Our room was furnished with modern furniture and bed was comfortable. However, from sagging pillows, thinned-out blanket, shoddy moldings, no-ventilation bathroom, swing-closed only bathroom door, to no slippers, it is clearly not a 4-star establishment.
