Urbana
A downtown dining hotspot adjacent to Hotel Palomar Washington DC Urbana strikes the perfect note. It is as much a destination restaurant as a neighborhood hangout. Linger over a glass of wine and delicious small plates at the bar or savor a full aromatic

The Perefet Place to Stay

I usually stay in the Marriott family of hotels -- well, no longer. If this Kimpton is typical of others in the chain, this is my new home away from home. Very stylish, modern, club-like feeling, similar to a W. This particular hotel has a great location surrounded by places to eat and drink, close to the Metro, but still walking distance to the Georgetown and Dupont neighborhoods.

Good location

The hotel was quite comfortable. The location was between Dupont Circle and Georgetown. It's very close to public transit and Rock Creek Park.

Excellent location, superior service.

I've rated this 5-star overall because although I've never stayed at a 5-star establishment I truly have no complaints from my Palomar experience. Large, swanky rooms, genuine smiles from the staff and a top restaurant/bar attached. A great stay generally but for the price unbeatable!

Another outstanding Kimpton experience

We have stayed at Hotel George and Helix Hotel. We were more than satisfied with our visit, like always. The concierge suggested the new Hotel Davenport, and this is where we will book our next stay.

Perfect Location

Proximity to Rock Creek Park and Metro red line is perfect. Great staff, and amenities. Loved the free boarding pass printing. Elevators were slow, but other than that, great hotel.

The hotel was pleasant for me and my two boys. All the staff was wonderful and very helpful. I loved the pool! Across the street is a great little bagel place and starbucks on the corner.

Family Getaway

We had an excellent one night stay at the Palomar. We upgraded to a 500 sq ft king bed room and were placed in a standard room. After some arguing with the front desk (who told us that they were booked and we were out of luck) they put us in a 500 sq ft room with two queen beds. The room was gorgeous and comfortable. There was a lot of noise at night - dogs barking, neighbors talking - but we live in the city so we're used to it. The pool was great and very kid and adult friendly.

chic & sexy

I am a makeup artist & love all things visual. When I opened the door I immediately dropped my bags & grabbed my camera! Wow, such a gorgeous room. I upgraded for $75 to a King Spa room with a Fuji Soaking Tub!! And there's a window cutout over the tub that lets you see the bed and the 32" tv. Or vice versa, meow! Going back to DC next week & already booked this room again!! Walking distance to all, great variety of restaurants.
